« Iraqi Elections "On Track": UN | Main | Republicans Push Norm Coleman For Leadership Post »
The Northern Alliance Radio Network again hijacks the Hugh Hewitt radio show, starting from 5 pm CT. The Generalissimo will be on hand to shepherd us through, as long as we promise not to break all of the studio furniture.
We think we may have some breaking news in the first hour, so be sure to tune us in right away. I plan on live-blogging the show, so keep checking back!
5:15 - Just finished the first segment, did a bit of poll review and took a call. We're coming up on a breaking campaign-finance story that you'll want to hear ...
5:19 - I keep getting e-mails about THK carrying beer at an event. Can someone tell me why this is such a problem? Has no one ever carried a couple of beers around for friends? ...
5:22 - A representative from the national College Republicans alleges connections between Rock the Vote, MTV, and the DNC, despite RTV's claims of non-partisanship ...
5:58 - Great last segment on the John Kerry hunting fetish this week. Duane did a great job finding "The Hunting Song" by one of my favorite comedians, Tom Lehrer. The hour went by too quickly, as it always does. I'm out for hour 2, but I'll be back in hour 3, and I can live-blog a bit more ...
6:12 - Fred Barnes is talking polls with Mitch, King, Saint Paul, and Rocket Man. He's emphasizing the volatile nature of the polls and the wide variety of polling methods. That comes on the heels of the Scripps poll showing a four-point Kerry lead in Ohio among likely voters, with Gallup reporting a Kerry one-point edge there. ...
6:20 - You gotta love the DNC's response to the new Bush "Wolves" ad that addresses Kerry's attempted evisceration of the CIA after the first World Trade Center bombing:
Instead of giving voters even one good reason to vote for him, George W. Bush has chosen to scare the American people with images of wolves.
As opposed to scaring voters with urban legends about the draft? With the mythology of the million disenfranchised African-American voters, when Janet Reno couldn't find even one? Telling seniors that Bush has a secret plan to steal their pension checks? Ooooo-kayyyyy ...
6:25 - Saint Paul notes that the local Sinclair station is pre-empting an LL Cool J sitcom to show the "Stolen Honor" presentation. Even if they make little impact on the election, these veterans still serve their country by improving our television programming ...
6:33 - This just in: the DNC has denounced the Minnesota Timberwolves basketball team for using their logo to scare NBA fans with images of wolves. More as this develops ...
6:36 - Jesse Ventura endorsed John Kerry, but refused to speak to reporters about his statement. I'll post on this in a few minutes ...
6:45 - We're pushing to get volunteers to come out tomorrow afternoon to the Bush/Cheney HQ in St. Paul to make some calls and do some much-needed work to get the vote out on November 2nd. We'll be there from 4-6 pm after our show tomorrow, so come out and see us ...
7:02 - Back in the studio ...
7:07 - Minnesota Apologizes! We feel really bad about: Jesse Ventura; Minnesota electors for the past 32 years; Mark Dayton; Paul Wellstone's legacy; Mark Dayton again; Garrison Keillor; Al Franken; the Minnesota Timberwolves logo; Walter Mondale; Craig Kilborn; the Star Search band Limited Warranty. We're sorry, and we swear it won't happen again ...
7:22 - Peeps won't sing "Muskrat Love", and Mitch calls him a Mark Dayton ...
7:26 - Citizen Smash calls in -- great to hear from him. He's got the goods on the free "Stolen Honor" video. Go check him out! ...
7:30 - If you're a blogger, call in during this segment at 800-520-1234 -- we're talking to bloggers next ...
7:44 - Blogger segment begins! Call us and let us know what your biggest story is ...
7:58 - That's a wrap! Thanks to Duane, who guided us through another great night, and to Hugh for giving us the opportunity again. Hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did!Sphere It View blog reactions
