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 discuss the rise of piracy, and whether Obama did the right thing in refusing comment on the negotiations. We’ll look at CNN’s coverage of The Bow, and figure out whether the White House blew it when Gibbs lied about what happened. Do we have President Pantywaist, or did Obama merely set the stage for later foreign-policy triumphs while gaining nothing on the Grand Tour? All of this and more — and stay tuned for a preview of tonight’s Hugh Hewitt Show.
