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 bow to each other, but we’ll also talk about protocol between heads of state and the obsequious bow Barack Obama gave Saudi King Abdullah. Did Hillary Clinton lie when she claimed that 90% of all guns in Mexican drug crimes come from the US? Is Arlen running scared? What happened to $100 billion in TARP funds this week? All of this and more — and stay tuned for a preview of tonight’s Hugh Hewitt Show.
