Politinerds: Ed Morrissey
This week on Politinerds, Jazz Shaw and I interview Ed Morrissey, Senior Editor at Hot Air, host of The Ed Morrissey Show, and among the class of long-time bloggers still out there sharing news and opinion with the world. We talked with Ed about what brought him to blogging, how the blogosphere has changed over the past decade or more and how it hasn’t, and how he approaches his own political writing. We also got into the 2016 elections, of course, and a new book that Ed has coming out next year called Going Red: The Two Million Voters Who Will Elect the Next President–and How Conservatives Can Win Them. The book will be published in April, but is already available for pre-order at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. As Morrissey describes it, the books is the result of his travels over the past year to seven key countries in battleground states that President Obama won in both 2008 and 2012 that Republicans must win if they are going to win the 2016 election. While the book seems largely meant as advice for conservatives and Republicans, it promises to be of interest to any political junkie regardless of what side of the aisle you’re on and anyone interested in the forces likely to drive the 2016 election.
We had fun doing this show and I think you’ll enjoy it too!
