We’ll start with the election in VA 7 and what it means with (Captain) Ed Morrissey of HotAir & his piece yesterday on what Cantor did wrong (it was more than immigration) and then we’ll follow up about the IRS’ impersonation of Rosemary Woods.

In the 2nd Hour we welcome Mary Lotz of the Fitchburg Republican Committee & the twin City tea party and then for our Magnificent Panel we bring in a new person for a Bob Beckel seat Bonsai enthusiast Richard of the blog Cajun’s Comments to Join Mary, Joe & myself.

Because of my road trip I didn’t have time to watch much TV but on Friday Morning I sat at the Lonely Conservative’s Kitchen table watching Morning Joe while I planned a day that would take me to the Ann Marie Buerkle HQ, The Clay Town Hall Event, The Shrine of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha in Fonda and to Chris Gibson’s campaign office in Kingston, with a Saratoga stop in NY-21 cancelled 30 minutes away from the spot.
