Hoist The Black Flag

3:05 Eastern Time at Rightalk.

Too much damn show today. (As always!)

First up, Jim Pinkerton of FoxNewsWatch and, of course, a nationally syndicated columnist. You might know him as the "Guy Who Makes Sense" on that show. Here's a recent TCS Column of his, on the link between AIDS and increasing conservatism

Then, Jim Geraghty, author of Voting to Kill: How 9/11 Launched A New Era of Republican Leadership and the blogger over at NRO's TKS as well as the group blog On Tap.

Now, I was expecting a very uncomfortable interview with him about that book, along the lines of, "Can you remember the moment, precisely, when your life and career went so horribly wrong?" But now that the public understands anew that terror is real and not "fictitious" as Michael Moore would have it, the midterms are currently deadlocked, and it seems a fortuitous time to talk with him.

And finally, Mary Katherine Ham of the Townhall blog and also Hugh Hewitt's blog. She'll be on in the latter part of the show with Jim Geraghty, to discuss Allah's crush on her.

I Hope Jim Pinkerton Doesn't Mind... but my email exchange with him was kind of funny. Bear in mind, he really has no idea who I am. It's perfectly understandable that he began to worry I was, in fact, a lunatic.


I have an internet talk show on rightalk. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind giving us 15 - 25 minutes of your time to tell us about how psyched you get when it's Shark Week on TBS. Or anything else you might be charged up about.

Thanks for your consideration,

Ace aka Sharkey

He responded that that he'd be willing to appear. So I upped the ante:

We're going to "break format" and also discuss mantas, skates and rays. I don't know if you're up on the sharks' lesser (but still deadly) cousins, but you can just go to the library for three or four hours and bone up.

Did I say bone up? How embarrassing. Sharks have no bones, only cartilege.

Now, at this point, he wasn't quite sure if he was dealing with a mental patient, and sought clarification:

Hmm. I can't quite tell where the kidding starts and ends here, but I am not sure that I have much to say about sea life in general.

Pretty funny, I think. That "Hmm" says a great deal. That "Hmm" told me I'd better say I'm kidding pretty quick and assure him that sharks would not be the main topic of conversation and that my "talk show" was not recorded in front of an audience of dead hitchikers in my basement.

However, I am still hoping to ask him about Tiger sharks at some point. Like, what would win in a fight-- a Tiger shark or an actual tiger? Assuming they fought in water, of course, but I think that's only obvious.

Then again, I want to ask every guest this. No one seems to discuss it, but, to me, it's always the elephant in the room no one is willing to acknowlege.
