Today, on the Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), we’ll take a look at the past week with Duane “Generalissimo” Patterson of the Hugh Hewitt Show. Duane and I will cover the multiple failures of Obama Cabinet appointments and take bets on who will have tax problems next. Will the stimulus bill pass today? And will Obama set all of the Gitmo detainees free rather than use the military commission system Congress created to try them? All of this and more — and stay tuned for a preview of tonight’s Hugh Hewitt Show.
