Listen to “Wages Rising, GOP Faces Gubernatorial Disasters, Kanye’s ‘Yexit'” on Spreaker.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are happy to see new reports showing the highest wage growth in a decade and the highest consumer confidence since 2000.  They also groan as dismal GOP prospects in major governors’ races could leave Democrats leading 12 of the 13 most populous states after the midterm elections.  And they do a terrible job of faking their shocked faces as Kanye West says he was used politically and is now “distancing himself from politics.”
