It is with mixed emotions that the powers at be at PJM and I have mutually decided to end PJM Political, our series which ran on Sirius-XM Satellite Radio’s POTUS channel from that channel’s launch in September of 2007 until this weekend. We will very likely continue to do audio podcasts here on the main PJM site from time to time, and of course, Pajamas Media’s PJTV cranks out loads of high-definition Internet video every day. (And of course, I’ll still be blogging up a storm and producing my own videos, on my PJ Express blog with that brilliantly transcendent title, Ed Driscoll.com)
