The Ed Morrissey Show: Guy Benson, Tina Korbe, Rep. Renee Ellmers

Today on The Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), Guy Benson returns to talk about the news of the week, including the conference call with Newt Gingrich yesterday in which we both participated.  I’ll ask Guy about the Tiffany’s “scandal,” and the latest Gallup poll that shows nothing much changing with Huckabee’s exit.  Afterward, Tina Korbe makes her debut appearance as a member of the Hot Air team.  We’ll discuss the pressures on boys and how that relates to adult behavior, and look at a bill in Tennessee that aims to do what Scott Walker did in Wisconsin.

In bonus minutes, Rep. Renee Ellmers joins us to discuss YouCut II, the latest version of the House Republican Caucus to get grassroots input on spending cuts!

The Ed Morrissey Show and its dynamic chatroom can be seen on the permanent TEMS page — be sure to join us, and don’t forget to keep up with the debate on my Facebook page, too!

We’ll also cover the the case of Marizela Perez, who has been missing in the Seattle area for more than two months. Marizela’s case has a connection here at Hot Air, as she is the cousin of the Boss Emeritus, Michelle Malkin. Michelle is trying to spread the word through Facebook and Q13Fox/KCPQ in Seattle. We want to encourage prayers for Marizela’s family, and also try to reach anyone in the area who knows where Marizela might be and ask them to contact the police.

The search has its own website now, Find Marizela, for the latest in the efforts to bring Marizela home. There is also a fund for the family to keep the search efforts going. Be sure to check there and at Michelle’s site for further developments, and keep the family in your prayers.

America’s Most Wanted is now on the case, too.

Michelle has an update complete with video.  And the University of Washington student newspaper has a lengthy profile of Marizela and the case, too.

Also, Move America Forward has started its Troopathon effort for 2011, and Hot Air once again is sponsoring a blogger team in the competition!  The Hot Air Steamers will square off against 5 other blogger teams — the COINS, Team 6, The Greyhawks, The Anti-Jihadists, and our friends at Free Republic on their own as The Freepers.  The Steamers team includes Maggie’s NotebookLonely Conservative, and No Sheeples Here.

We’re combining up to sell care packages for our troops overseas.  We’ll all take part in the Troopathon on June 23rd, when we’ll find out how the Steamers managed to do against our stalwart competitors — but this is one contest where everyone wins, especially the men and women who receive these packages and feel some small part of the support we all want to give them. Be generous, and thank you for your efforts!

Also, I will be covering another effort to show support for wounded veterans put on by the Palazzo in Las Vegasnext weekend.
