Today, on the Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), we’re going to do something new. Instead of having a guest to interview, we’ll connect TEMS chatizens with their Representative or Senator to protest the Democratic Porkfest Bill of 2009, aka the stimulus package quarterbacked by Nancy Pelosi. If this works well, we’ll do it all hour long. Here’s what you need to do:

1. Register for Ustream chat as noted below before the show starts.

2. Work with me or Jazz Shaw, our partner in this effort, by private message in the chat room to give him your phone number and the phone number of your Representative (or Senator), and your real name. Don’t make Jazz look it up — we simply won’t have the time.

You can find those numbers at the House and Senate websites.

3. Jazz will give both to me, and I’ll call you and your elected official, where you can read off one particular pork item you find objectionable and urge the official to vote against the package.

Help us Melt the Phones in DC to oppose this big-government wish list!

Now you can join the conversation in the chat room! Be sure to register at Ustream to participate in our raucous live-chat sessions. (And if the log-in prompt doesn’t come up in the chat box below, use this link instead.) Jazz Shaw of The Moderate Voice moderates the chat, and he has his Troll Gun Trivia Contest running before the show, for those who get there early — and are registered!
