TEMS: Mary Katharine Ham, Christopher & Howe!

Today, on the Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), Mary Katharine Ham joins us in the first half to talk about her Tea Party/Tax Day experiences in North Carolina, as well as the American Legion pushback against the “right-wing extremist report” — and the objections of a key liberal Democrat on the House Homeland Security Committee. In the second half, Caleb Howe and Tommy Christopher talk about their observations of the White House Tea Party protest, the shutdown by the Secret Service, and what lessons they took from the nationwide protest.
