Listen to “Mitch Has the Votes, Warren’s Speech Police, PETA vs. Punxsutawney” on Spreaker.
We’re talking impeachment, criminalizing speech, and fake groundhogs on Thursday’s Three Martini Lunch. Join Jim and Greg as they roll their eyes at most questions being asked by senators in the impeachment trial and then discuss how Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell suddenly seems to have the votes needed to end the push for more witnesses and end the trial soon. Even though it’ll never happen, they also cringe as Elizabeth Warren panders for more votes by promising to impose civil and criminal penalties for online platforms that publish what she considers to be disinformation. And they have a lot of fun with PETA’s absurd demands that famed groundhog Punxsutawney Phil be freed from the cruelty of his annual duties and be replaced with an animatronic groundhog equipped with artificial intelligence. But despite the lunacy, Jim sees some room for common ground!
