Happy Monday, and Happy Memorial Day. We hope it’s a restful and peaceful one, and that you’ll take time today to remember our fellow Americans who lost their lives in service of our beloved country. Your Morning Dispatchers are off today, but we have two offerings on the site this morning to mark the occasion: James Garfield’s 1868 speech at Arlington National Cemetery and Chris’s Stirewalt’s Monday column, “A Tribute to the Dead, A Reminder to the Living.”
And speaking of Chris, we’re excited to introduce the newest Dispatch production: The Hangover with Chris Stirewalt. Chris joined us from Fox News this spring as a contributing editor. He writes a weekly column on Mondays and contributes to The Sweep newsletter on Tuesdays too.
When it became obvious there wasn’t going to be a traditional post-election autopsy of the GOP’s performance, Chris pitched the idea of doing one as a limited-run podcast. We said “Heck yes, go for it.”
Without further ado, here are the first three chapters of The Hangover with Chris Stirewalt—click on an image below to be taken to that episode’s page, then click the play arrow to listen:
