Today, on the Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), Kevin McCullough joins us again to discuss the intersection of faith and politics. Kevin and I will talk about my visit to the Big Apple and my controversial new headwear, Herman Cain’s surprise win in the Florida straw poll, Kevin’s defense of Rick Perry on immigration policy, and the political heat on CGBG for their willingness to work with Christian groups.
We’ll also talk about The Binge Thinker, Kevin and Stephen’s exploding success in independent talk radio, as well as Kevin’s new book, No He Can’t: How Barack Obama Is Dismantling Hope and Change, being released this week! Don’t forget about Kevin’s previous book, The Kind of Man Every Man Should Be: Taking a Stand for True Masculinity, either.
In bonus minutes, Congressional candidate Tom Cotton joins me to talk about his campaign in Arkansas’s 4th CD, currently held by Democrat Mike Ross despite the R+7 Cook rating for the district. Cotton, a reservist in the US Army, will be in the Twin Cities for a fundraiser hosted by Power Line’s John Hinderaker, so we’ll also talk about tonight’s event at the Minneapolis Club at 5:30 pm CT.
Marizela Perez has been missing in the Seattle area for more than six months now. 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 offered an update earlier this month:
Though you see me in the political fight day in and day out, I remind you that we are all defined by much, much more than our politics.
Now, someone out there know something. If you are reading this, please have the decency to break your silence and help us.
Imagine the terror, heartache, heartbreak, agony, and helplessness of a mother and father living with unfathomable holes in their hearts and souls as they wonder what happened to the teenage daughter they loved, nurtured, doted on, worried about, and sent off to college with the highest of hopes and dreams.
Vanished. Without a trace.
We are currently working on legal strategies to try and obtain information from Marizela’s Internet/social networking accounts that the SPD refuses to share with her parents. It is a long shot, but we’ll leave no stone unturned.
Friends and strangers continue to spread the word. I heard from a reader who saw someone holding a “Find Marizela” sign in NYC in front of one of the major morning show studios last month. Other readers have held prayer vigils and continued to post her missing person flyers at work and on school grounds across the country.
Be sure to read it all and to keep the family in your prayers.
