Tonight's Political Pistachio Radio, which is now playing on the media player on this site, was a successful broadcast. Governor James Gilmore, one of the major players in the Republican Party, took time from his busy schedule to be a part of the program. We spoke with him about his recent withdrawal from the Presidential Race, as well as his position on a number of issues, including the war on terror and the immigration issue. Listener participation was amazing. I had a number of callers submit questions to Mr. Gilmore, and I also fielded a number of questions submitted by Yahoo Messenger. Thank you for the support.
By the way, BlogTalk Radio also posted a blog entry on the broadcast. This is the second time Political Pistachio has been recognized by the host network.
Thank you, my friends, for your support, and continued listenership of the show. The growth of the radio show has been tremendous, and that growth is due to you, the listeners.
Tammy Faye Messner passed away. The cancer finally completed its course, and has taken this woman of faith to Heaven. She actually passed away Friday morning, but it was requested that news of her death not be released until tonight.
She was a shining example of how a person can make mistakes in life, serious ones in her case regarding the scandals that surrounded the PTL club, and her then husband, Jim Bakker, in the 80's, and through faith and repentance find her way back to the Lord.
Despite the storms of her life, and the battle with cancer, she kept her Christian Faith. She became a shining example of faith and forgiveness in the end, and we are all better for knowing her. God Bless you, Tammy Faye, and rest easy in the arms of the Lord.
I just received news that my employer is sending me out of town for the week to Las Vegas. I leave Sunday Morning. It'll take me probably a good six hours to drive my big rig to the location. Then it'll be fun in the sun (100+ degree weather). Anyway, the point of this portion of the post is to advise you, my loyal readers, that due to the accomodations set up for us the internet may not be readily available to me, so I am going to leave Political Pistachio, and my family of sites, to my lovely wife, the one you know as Mrs. Pistachio. Treat her well, and I'll talk to you next Saturday on Political Pistachio Radio with my guest, Stephen R. Maloney, who is one of the national coordinators for Sarah Palin for Vice-President on the Republican national ticket.
