HWX, with Paul Mirengoff

It’s another Saturday afternoon special edition of the Hinderaker-Ward Experience.  This week there’s an extra helping of Power Line goodness, as the great Paul Mirengoff joins the conversation.

We break down last week’s Vice Presidential debate, with varying opinions on Paul Ryan’s performance, Joe Biden’s looniness, and whether it makes any difference.  We also preview the next Presidential debate coming up on Tuesday.  It’s going to be a “town hall” style debate, with questions coming exclusively from those reliable fonts of wisdom, undecided voters.  We express our reservations and expectations for what’s to come.

Next it’s Loon of the Week, featuring yet another alibi for President Obama’s poor performance in the first Presidential debate.  Then, This Week in Gate Keeping, where Vogue Magazine meets The Sopranos, with hilarious consequences.

This week’s episode is brought to you by Hillsdale College and their FREE video series, Constitution 201:

Constitution 201 is a new 10-week online course examining American progressivism: its historical roots and principles; its rejection of America’s founding principles and Constitution; its political successes in the New Deal, the Great Society, and in recent years; the ongoing political debate between progressives and conservatives; and the chance of a constitutional revival.
