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 analyze the ongoing debate on Porkulus, as well as the Gregg withdrawal, and what that means for the Obama administration. We may try again to reach Arlen Specter, this week the Unreachable Star of the Senate, to see if he’ll keep his word and vote against the massive intrusion into the health-care industry that Porkulus promises. All of this and more — and stay tuned for a preview of tonight’s Hugh Hewitt Show!
