The Vince Flynn Interview and Amaze.fm

Friday, February 6, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

The transcript of today’s Vince Flynn interview is here. The podcasts are here.

And the Amaze.fm song of the week –which we played yesterday because of today’s special with Flynn– was “Paper Box” by Gayle Skidmore.

The outlines of the “deal” on the stimulus convey only that the bill remains as awful and as partisan as it has been from the start. Getting Senators Collins, Snowe and Specter to support it does not in any way remedy President Obama’s breach of a commitment to bipartisanship or a new way of legislating, and of course the three votes does nothing to remove the stench from the bill. The first reports suggest it remains a giant slab of special interest pork with little if any stimulative effect but enormous outyear costs. Hopefully the House and Senate GOP will refuse to provide cover for the vast explosion of ineffective spending. Elections have consequences, and voters are waking up to the reality of having empowered the same old democrats using the same old tactics of paying off their friends with taxpayer money, even when the economy is in real need of real stimulus.

The Vince Flynn Interview

Friday, February 6, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Author Vince Flynn joins me for the entire show today as we discuss his phenomenal success, his approach to writing thrillers, the long war against Islamist jihadists and a dozen other subjects. Flynn fans will love it, and those who haven’t yet begun to enjoy the novels can listen in with the assurance that they will not be surprised by plot spoilers.

Here is Flynn’s website. I am a believer in starting at the beginning of a series of novels, and thus recommend starting with Flynn’s first Mitch Rapp thriller, Transfer of Power, but many millions read them in whatever order they come upon them, including Flynn’s most recent NYT best-seller Extreme Measures.

“The New Diplomacy” by Tarzana Joe

Thursday, February 5, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Tarzana Joe is the poet laureate of the Hugh Hewitt Show. This week’s poem:

The New Diplomacy
By Tarzana Joe

A hopeful day is dawning
And the changing has begun
Let’s all get down to business
But remember that I won

We’re going to change America
And reason not the cost
I’d love to hear your thinking
But remember that you lost

To this little wine and cheese
I bi-partisan-ly greet you
Before we get to the agenda
Did I mention that I beat you?

When it comes to picking policy
There can only be one chooser
Now I am the decider
And you, friend, are the loser

The deficit is larger
And the GDP is thinner
But that’s the way I want it
And guess what? I’m the winner

The government is growing
And I hope you know your place in it
And every chance I get
I’m going to rub your face in it.
