The Ed Morrissey Show: Jazz Shaw and Erika Johnsen, live from the Republican Convention

Today on The Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), we start the first of three shows with live coverage from the Republican National Convention.  Today, Hot Air’s weekend editor and resident curmudgeon Jazz Shaw joins us from the media room to update us on the top stories from the floor.  We’ll talk about the Mystery Speaker, the rules fights, and get an update on the booze flowing in Tampa this week from the one man we can trust to report on it!

Update: Erika Johnsen will join me in the second half via phone to discuss the happenings on the convention floor, too.

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!

Keep praying that Marizela Perez will be found, and peace brought to her family.

For this week, I’ve changed the front-page graphic to one that I received from my good friend and OOTD illustrator, Chris Muir of Day By Day.  Chris holds an annual fundraiser to keep the adventures of Sam, Zed, Jan, and Damon coming.  Chris, whose artwork has enhanced the OOTD feature since its inception for Hot Air readers, uses the funds raised for only the continuance of DBD.  As always, the fundraiser has many fabulous gifts available at whatever level one chooses to donate.  If you’re thinking about donating at the Jan/Damon level or above, you’ll get a Last Supper Red vs Blue magnet, which has depictions of personalities from New Media — myself included.  Donating at the Anatoly Level will get you a 9×15 print of the artwork.  Dig deep and be part of supporting the one of the best New Media cartoonists in the biz!
