A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit the NRA News studio just outside Washington D.C. It was great to finally meet Cam Edwards, host of Cam and Company on and Sirius XM. Edwards has hosted the three hour program every week night for over eight years. The program has featured many notable guests, including Amb. John Bolton, Rep. Darrell Issa, Katie Pavlich, Jonah Goldberg, Trace Atkins and Ted Nugent. Edwards also writes “Cam’s Corner,” a monthly column for several NRA magazines including America’s 1st Freedom.

Since frequent Cam and Company guest Ted Nugent is a “De Pasquale’s Dozen” alum, I had to ask him about Edwards’ show. He said, “The tip of the culture war spear is the right to keep and bear arms. The mighty NRA and our voice on Cam & Co keeps the self-evident truth alive and well, and because of Cam’s down to earth, believable delivery, has inspired legions to become active voices to educate and celebrate the God given right to self defense.”

You can’t get any better than a seal of approval from Uncle Ted himself.

Each week the De Pasquale's Dozen asks political figures and free market-minded writers and entertainers to take a break from politics and talk about their pop culture obsessions.

1. If there were a television channel that showed only one movie over and over, what movie should it be?

I think that channel exists and is already showing Office Space because that movie always seems to be on TV when I turn it on. However, if I get to add another channel I'm going with the 80's masterpiece Red Dawn . It has action, drama, romance, a great cast, a pro-2nd Amendment message, and is a fantastic cultural relic of the Cold War. It never gets old for me.

2. What’s one of your favorite movie quotes?

"I want my two dollars!" from Better Off Dead . I think it's time to set the record straight. John Cusack OWED that kid money, and all the little dude was doing was trying to collect a debt. We used to admire that kind of tenacity, doggone it. Hell, I'd be impressed with a kid having a paper route today.

3. In A Clockwork Orange , Malcolm McDowell is strapped in with his eyes propped open and forced to watch images until he was "cured." If you could give President Obama, Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Leader Harry Reid the "Clockwork Orange treatment," what movie would you make them watch?

I'm going to cheat a little bit, because I'd actually like them to watch the John Adams HBO mini-series. Paul Giamatti is amazing to watch, and I'd like to think you can't help but get it after watching that over and over for a few weeks.
