I will be hosting my friend and radio colleague Dennis Prager for three hours on today’s show, which is originating from the Richard Nixon Library and Birthplace in Yorba Linda, California from 3 to 6 PM. Dennis is speaking at the Library tonight to a sold-out crowd of 1,000 about his new book, Still the Best Hope, but you can buy a book in the Library bookstore and get it signed by Dennis during breaks in the program.
My only price of admission is that you have made at least a $5 contribution to one of the candidates on my ActRight list here or also accessible through the banner ad in the right column. Give more if you can, but early in this campaign season, develop the habit of integrating political success in the fall into your matrix of responsibilities, because it is your responsibility to do as much as you can for the key candidates.
Obviously that means Mitt Romney, but it also means, for example, Scott Brown, who is getting blow back from the hard left because of the left’s defensiveness over Elizabeth Warren’s faux “Native American” credentials. Or it could mean Ted Cruz in the Texas Senate primary where Tea Party momentum is rallying to the young, dynamic constitutional lawyer who has represented originalism in so many key cases across the country.
Or it could be a donation to Tom Cotton, the young Harvard Law grad who joined the 101st Airborne after graduation and has served in both Afghanistan and Iraq before returning to civilian life and running for Congress from Arkansas.
Now, show prep for the Pragerthon today. Still the Best Hope is 400 pages of provocative, beautifully written diagnoses of all that ails the West. All I need do is open the page and a show falls out. But to this I will add some headlines, including the latest in controversy over Elizabeth Warren, because today’s headlines are anticipated by Dennis’ book. (p. 99 “Western universities have become Left-wing seminaries.”)
Other stories that might show up in today’s broadcast with Dennis:
*“Psychiatry Manual Drafters Back Down on Diagnoses” (New York Times)
*“Rabbi Boteach Goes to Washington?” (Wall Street Journal)
It will be a wonderful show. Be sure to listen and to come by if you are in SoCal. There will be a cigar jar. But if you can’t be there in person, get Dennis’ book and settle in for a transfornative experience.
