More year-end awards today! Jim and Greg embark on the second half of their six-episode series of the 3 Three Martini Lunch Awards. Today, they offer up their selections for the Best Political Idea, Worst Political Idea, and Boldest Political Tactics for the year.
They start with the best ideas of the year. Jim chooses an event that actually happened late last year but the true impact of it has been felt far and wide in 2023. Meanwhile, Greg’s award goes to a critical policy movement that made significant progress this year.
Then it’s time for the worst political ideas of the year, with both Jim and Greg finding so many terrible ideas that they both have multiple winners with no overlapping. Jim focuses on three terrible and simply wrong ideas pursued by the Biden administration on the international stage. Whereas, Greg highlights United Nations advocacy of a truly terrible idea that should horrify every parent. And he cites a governor’s effort to blatantly defy the Constitution.
Finally, they’re on to boldest political tactics for 2023, with neither of them agreeing with the tactics they chose to honor. Jim starts with a move made in the 2024 presidential campaign that was widely unpopular but has undoubtedly worked well. And Greg points to am aggressive and disruptive move on Capitol Hill.
Don’t miss Thursday’s special edition as Jim and Greg reveal their choices for Most Overreported Story, Most Underreported Story, and the Best Story of 2023.
Thanks for listening to the 3 Martini Lunch!
