Today, on the Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), we have two great guests for the show. First we welcome back Andrew Malcolm from the LA Times blog Top of the Ticket, to talk about the politics of the day. In the second half, King Banaian returns to dissect the stimulus bill, the mortgage bailout, and the next steps from the Obama administration’s economic team — including the effects of regulating carbon dioxide.

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!
