UPDATE: Reading up on Sinise, and it turns out he’s from Blue Island, Illinois and went to Highland Park High School. How about Senator Sinise? That’s one appointment everyone in Illinois cold get behind.
The President-elect Should Ask USA Fitzgerald To Release Transcripts Of All Taped Conversations Between Blagojevich and Obama Advisors
The statement from the president-elect’s office is, well, slippery. It does not detail what contacts occurred between Governor Blagojevich and Obama advisors and staff. Most of us had understood the president-elect to have committed to full disclosure of all the details.
The president-elect appears to be hiding the facts about contacts between his staff and advisors and Blagojevich, which leads to the conclusion that there is something to hide here. To end the speculation, the president-elect need only request that the United States Attorney release transcripts of all conversations taped between Blagojevich and and Obama staffer or advisor.
I have been devoting a lot of December’s programming to the future direction of the GOP, and will certainly be covering that ground when I broadcast from the Heritage Foundation in D.C. today.
I am also going to begin an on-air project between now and the Inauguration that will ask where Evangelicals and devout Catholics are headed when it comes to American politics. If you’d like to suggest a guest for that series of conversations, please do so via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Off to the recently reopened Museum of American History.
Broadcasting tomorrow and Wednesday from Heritage –Geraghty the Indispensable sits in for me Tuesday in his radio debut– and perhaps I can lure Rob Bluey, David All and Patrick Ruffini into the studio to advance my December project: Explaining the benefits of social media for conservatives. The triumph of the weekend was to lure Emmett of the Unblinking Eye into opening a Twitter account –@EOTUE. Disdain is easy to convey in 140 characters. Now if we can only figure out how to drive Fraters’ Peeps off the service. Background here. David All’s beginner’s guide here. Sign up as well at TopConservativesOnTwitter.org.
The White Whale of Twitter is David Allen White, though I suspect we will never catch him. I am carrying Don Quixote in anticipation of my great books interview with Dr. White on the same. If you’d like to listen to the first offering in the series on Tolstoy’s War and Peace and Melville’s Moby Dick, visit here.
Next up, Cervantes and Dickens’ Great Expectations, and then the Divine Comedy. We are open to suggestions after that.
Other guest suggestions for D.C.? Send them to me via Twitter using the hashtag #hhrs, driect @hughhewitt, or as always via e-mail, email@example.com. Duane can also be contacted on Twitter @radioblogger and Adam @atomyoungman.
