Thursday TEMS special: Randy Barnett, Matt Lewis

I’m traveling today, but we’ll still get a special edition of The Ed Morrissey Show in at 4:40 ET.  The show will be streamed on Hot Air’s Facebook page as well as on our Ustream channel, as usual. We’ll speak with Professor Randy Barnett, author of the new book  Our Republican Constitution: Securing the Liberty and Sovereignty of We the People. What is the difference between a democratic constitution and a republican constitution? Do rights come from government, or do they precede government? The differences are critical — and too often lost in our debates.

Afterward, we’ll touch base with the Daily Caller’s Matt Lewis to catch up to the Paul Ryan “endorsement” of Donald Trump, the David French gambit, and much more in the presidential race.

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!
