Mark Steyn Subs for Rush Limbaugh Thursday

Rush announced at the end of today's show that "the great writer and commentator, Mark Steyn" would be his substitute for Thursday's program.

I've heard Steyn many times as a guest on Hugh Hewitt's radio show. Should be fun to hear him filling in as a host. Steyn is an amazingly quick-witted, knowledgeable, and amusing man. (Rather like Rush!)

I heard a few minutes of the show. He was his usual erudite and very witty self. By the way, what is his accent, other than British? It seems very regional but I don't know what region!

I believe he's a Canadian who lives in New Hampshire or Vermont.

I always wonder what kind of "prep" work a new guest host goes through -- that would be a good question for "Open Line Friday." Do they spend much time rehearsing or do they just sit down in front of the mike and go for it? :) I heard David Limbaugh once subbing for Sean Hannity -- I think he's a wonderful guy and love his books and columns, but it was really noticeable how much he said "Um." Something I think a lot of us would probably do while searching our minds for what to say next.
