The Ed Morrissey Show: Kerry Picket, Jeff Patch, Rob Simmons

Today on The Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), Kerry Picket joins us at the top of the show to bring us up to date on Washington Times coverage of Capitol Hill.  We’ll talk about all of the latest on the post-election fallout, and also on Kerry’s original reporting on the LA-Arizona feud.

Next, we welcome Jeff Patch to the show for the first time.  The communications director for the Center for Competitive Politics will give us the updates to the DISCLOSE Act story and how Congress may task the FEC with regulating bloggers and political speech.  The website for all of this information is at Campaign Freedom.

In bonus minutes, we’ll talk again with Senate hopeful Rob Simmons, former Congressman from Connecticut.  We’ll talk about the controversy surrounding Richard Blumenthal with this decorated Vietnam War combat veteran and talk about Blumenthal’s defense.

The Ed Morrissey Show and its terrific chatroom can be accessed through the TEMS permanent page!
