In case you didn’t tune into The Washington Times’ nationally syndicated radio show “America’s Morning News” — heard in Washington on WTNT-AM 570 and coast-to-coast via the Talk Radio Network — here’s what three of Tuesday’s guests told host John McCaslin:

• Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, Texas Republican: Mrs. Hutchison listened for the first time to a recording of Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, Rhode Island Democrat, accusing opponents of health care reform of being anti-Obama and racist. She said Mr. Whitehouse’s comments were beyond the pale.

• George Phillips, Republican candidate for New York’s 22nd Congressional District: Mr. Phillips called outrageous the accusation by his opponent, Democratic Rep. Maurice D. Hinchey, that President George W. Bush purposely allowed terrorism mastermind Osama bin Laden to escape after the Sept. 11 attacks.

• A.W.R. Hawkins, professor of history at West Texas A&M; University: Mr. Hawkins compared the difficult political climb of 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin to that of Ronald Reagan, whom the mainstream media similarly labeled “dumb” during his campaign despite widespread popular support among Americans.
