SoCal talk radio host and blogger Hugh Hewitt's message and worldview can almost always be reduced to a simple statement: Republicans good, Democrats bad. On yesterday's nationally syndicated show, he asked listeners to call in and recite this line — "Any vote for any House or Senate Democrat is a vote against victory and a vote for vulnerability. Vote for Victory. Vote Republican" — so he could record their voices for a pro-GOP ad he's making. Didn't hear it myself, but a reader wonders if such blatant partisanship on the public airwaves gets declared as an in-kind campaign contribution.
* Hewitt responds: Gets some of it right, but inexplicably thinks I was debating something with this post — and that bloggers have some ethical obligation to drop everything on twenty minutes notice to appear on a partisan talk show.
