The Ed Morrissey Show: Kerry Picket, Mary Katharine Ham, John Randall

Today, on the Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), we have Kerry Picket of the Washington Times to kick off today’s show. She’ll bring us up to date on all of the capital scuttlebutt and clue us in on her next big scoops for the Water Cooler, and we’ll ask what has Barney Frank so upset this week, too. After that, the Weekly Standard’s Mary Katharine Ham returns on Ham Cam, where we’ll talk about tackling reporters and shaking hands outside Fenway, as well as what’s happened in Haiti. In bonus minutes, John Randall of the NRCC joins us to talk about Congressional races in New York, including the new challenge to Maurice Hinchey from George Phillips.
