Join Jim and Greg discuss how the 3 Martini Lunch factored into a major debate Tuesday night! Then the turn to the martinis as they welcome polling evidence that even more House races are tilting towards the Republicans and nearly all generic polls show a GOP edge…but you still need to vote! They also groan as Saudi intelligence suggests Iran is planning an “imminent” attack but also note the likely return of Benjamin Netanyahu to in Israel. And President Biden plans to discuss why voting for his party is needed to save democracy after his party spent millions trying to get Republicans nominated who they considered the most extreme.
Join Jim and Greg as they welcome more polling indicators of a good midterm election night for Republicans – including dismal numbers on the state of the nation and a huge shift towards the GOP among suburban women in just the past couple of months. They also applaud New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu for calling out “Meet the Press” moderator Chuck Todd for living in a bubble after Todd was incredulous that election denial was not the top concern for voters this year. And they tee off on the suggestion in “The Atlantic” that we should just grant each other amnesty over our differences on COVID policy and just move on.
Join Jim and Greg as they serve up two bad martinis and a crazy one with a good aftertaste. First, they break down the latest warnings from Mansfield Energy that several states are already impacted by the diesel shortage on our country , some may have to go without fuel for short stretches, and prices will be going up. They also continue to wish Paul Pelosi a speedy recovery but slam President Biden for trying to turn the violent actions of a drug-addled nudist into an indictment of the Republican Party. And they shake their heads as Stacey Abrams says Gov. Brian Kemp is endorsed by 107 Georgia sheriffs because they “want to be able to take black people off the streets.” Jim says it’s another sign that Abrams is likely to lose and may take down Sen. Raphael Warnock with her.
Join Jim and Greg as they pop the popcorn and enjoy the left melting down on Twitter over the news that Elon Musk is officially running Twitter now. They also call out President Biden for the bald-faced lie that gas prices were above five dollars per gallon when he took office. And they give credit to the Washington Post for saying James Bennet was right in his standoff with the editorial department mob at the New York Times over an op-ed by Sen. Tom Cotton back in 2020.
Join Jim and Greg as they process polling numbers in the Arizona governor’s race and wonder whether Democrats made bad decisions about debating in two key states. They’re also horrified as the Air Force admits its personnel records about a Republican congressional candidate and her sexual assault in Iraq were leaked to a Democratic opposition research firm and got published in Politico. And Jim has zero confidence that anyone will face consequences for such a heinous act. Finally, after years of insisting President Trump and Republicans are an existential threat to democracy, a Dem-connect PAC is spending tons of money on ads saying the GOP candidates are not loyal enough to Trump and that his voters should support Libertarian candidates.
Join Jim and Greg as they discuss John Fetterman’s painful performance in the Pennsylvania U.S. Senate debate and how Fetterman’s wife and state Democrats failed to protect a man who clearly needs much more time to recover. They also cheer Lee Zeldin for eviscerating New York Gov. Kathy Hochul on crime, the economy, freedom, and the nursing home scandal which still demands accountability. Finally, they applaud the New York Supreme Court for striking down New York City’s policy of firing city employees who did not get a COVID shot and ordering those employees reinstated and given back pay.
Join Jim and Greg as they serve up two good martinis and a crazy one. First, they cheer the Institute for Energy Research for blasting Biden for undermining American energy independence and for playing politics with the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. They also applaud Politico for honestly reporting on how Stacey Abrams’ Fair Fight Action group spent many millions on legal action in Georgia that went nowhere but made her campaign chairwoman very rich. And they sigh as Hillary Clinton claims Republicans are plotting to steal the 2024 presidential race and Jim notices the Clintons are nowhere to be found on the midterm campaign trail.
Greg is back! Join Jim and Greg as they welcome news that the Michigan governor’s race is a dead heat and one of the worst governors in the country could be in big trouble. They also cringe as national math and reading testing shows horrific numbers that are clearly a result of schools being closed – many of them much longer than necessary. And they react to reports that Russia’s defense minister was discussing the threat of a Ukrainian “dirty bomb” that most in the west see as nothing more than a manufactured pretext for Moscow to use nukes.
As Chad Benson’s week of sitting in for Greg comes to a close, everything is coming up roses for the Republicans in the midterms – the GOP gubernatorial candidates are enjoying a well-timed late surge of momentum, a slew of Senate seats that once seemed out of reach are now in play, and not only are Democratic candidates avoiding Joe Biden, they’re keeping their distance from Kamala Harris and the Clintons.

Chad Benson remains in for Greg Corombos, and the midterms are heating up. Chad and Jim wonder whether Kathy Hochul’s shrinking lead in New York is significant, gaze across the Atlantic at a leadership crisis in the United Kingdom, and wonder why Arizona Democratic gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs is so scared to get on a debate stage with Kari Lake.
