Programming note: Tonight, Friday, Mark guest-hosts Tucker Carlson Tonight for a full hour, live across America at 8pm Eastern/5pm Pacific. For West Coasters and night birds, the show airs again at midnight Eastern/9pm Pacific. We hope you'll tune in to one or other or both if you are in the presence of the receiving apparatus.
Meanwhile, welcome to the weekend edition of The Mark Steyn Show - in which Mark considers conservatism on hold around the globe, and ponders the difference between rigging and "fortifying" the election. We also have a poem from Sir Walter Scott, a song from Cole Porter, and a missive from Steyn Clubber Tim Neilson.

Mark will be back in audio right after tonight's Tucker for Episode Twenty-Seven of our latest Tale for Our Time - George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four.
The Mark Steyn Show and Tales for Our Time are made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. As Mark always says, Club membership isn't for everyone, but if you're curious you can find more information here.
