Father wears his Sunday best; Mother's tired, she needs a rest....

Another news intensive week, so a lot to get to this afternoon on The Closer. Please tune in, as I will be on the air from 1:00 until 3:00 pm Central Time.

Right at 1:00, Salem Communications crack promotions guy (as well as my friend and fellow Twins rube) Ross Brendel will be checking in. Ross will opine on the firing of Minnesota Twins manager Ron Gardenhire, a move he felt should have been made eight years ago. We'll also discuss the possible replacements for Gardy.

At 1:15, Republican Congressional candidate (and fellow Harding Sr. High alum) Sharna Wahlgren will join me in studio.

Sharna's senior photo - Harding HS class of '86.

This photo is part of Harding's "Senior Class Poll" for the class of '86. In the upper left is Sharna and a male classmate who were voted "Most Intelligent." The photo in the lower left features the boy and girl voted "Class Clowns." The young man standing on his head in that pic? That would be the late, great comedian Mitch Hedberg.

Ms. Wahlgren has the unenviable task of running in the second most blue Congressional District in the state of Minnesota, which is CD4. Nevertheless, we'll discuss Sharna's campaign thus far as she attempts to oust the vacuous Rep. Betty McCollum this November.

Then at 2:00, author/conservative columnist/friend of the Northern Alliance Radio Network Katie Kieffer will check in. This Tuesday in Northfield, MN, Katie will be on a six-person panel as part of Bill Maher's HBO program Real Time. The insufferable Maher is in town to enact his "Flip a District" campaign. Minnesota's 2nd Congressional District, currently represented by Republican John Kline, has been chosen by Maher to flip to a Democrat this November. It won't happen but the caustic, arrogant Maher will try to be relevant in CD2 nonetheless.

In the non-guest segments, we'll discuss other newsworthy items, including how President Obama undermined incumbent Democrat Senators who have been trying to distance themselves from Obama's record.

So please give me call at (651) 289-4488 if you'd like to discuss any of the topics I plan on addressing. You can also text comments/questions to (651) 243-0390.

You can listen live in the Twin Cities at AM 1280 on your radio dial. In and out of the Minneapolis-St Paul area, you can listen to the program on the Internet by clicking this link, or check us out via iheart radio

Even though I have a face for radio, there is a UStream channel where you can watch the broadcast, if you so desire. Check it out here.
