Today's hot topics: Jackson's retreat, Pruitt's defense, the $18 Billion Prize, impeachment's folly, and more!

Today on The Ed Morrissey Show (4 pm ET), we have another great lineup for the news of the day! The show will be streamed on Hot Air’s Facebook page and embedded here and on the show page for those who are not on Facebook. (If it’s muted, right-click the video and choose Unmute.)

Join us as we welcome:

  • Duane “Generalissimo” Patterson brings us up to date on the week’s top stories and gives us a preview of tomorrow’s Hugh Hewitt show. Hugh did our show prep for us; you can check out the agenda here.
  • What is The $18 Billion Prize, and why does it mean you can never win? Phelim McAleer joins us to discuss his latest dramatic effort, which opens a two-week run in San Francisco next month.
  • Can Democrats win by running on impeachment for Donald Trump — or does that goal become more elusive the more they talk about it? Veteran Washington reporter Robert Schlesinger, author of White House Ghosts: Presidents and Their Speechwriters, joins us to discuss the fraught politics of impeachment and how it might hobble Democrats in a cycle that seems to be made to order for success.

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!
