It’s all good martinis today! Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react to the breaking news of an arrest in the case of pipe bomb-type devices sent to prominent Democrats. Then, they welcome the news that the Cook Political Report is moving the New Jersey U.S. Senate race to the toss-up column as a result of the immense ethical baggage hampering Sen. Bob Menendez. They also applaud 3.5 percent economic growth in the third quarter. And they enjoy watching the left inch away from attorney Michael Avenatti after his efforts to sink Brett Kavanaugh backfired and he says a white male should be the Democratic nominee in 2016.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America cheer a new poll showing DNC Vice chairman Keith Ellison falling behind in his bid to become attorney general in Minnesota. They also cringe at a New York Times story describing President Trump resistance to using secure phone lines to talk with his family and friends and how China and Russia are almost certainly listening in. And they throw up their hands as mainstream media outlets admit they have no idea who is responsible for the pipe bomb packages but already blame President Trump and conservative commentators.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are enraged that someone would send explosive devices to the Obamas, Clintons, CNN, and others and hope that those responsible for threatening or attacking public figures – or anyone else – are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. They’re also glad to see Indiana Republican Senate hopeful Mike Braun either closing in on Sen. Joe Donnelly or even taking the lead. They slam MSNBC’s Chuck Todd and others for definitively declaring that there’s no evidence of criminals being part of the thousands of Central Americans headed towards the U.S. border when there is evidence to the contrary. And they weather the final attack ads aimed at their favorite teams ahead of Sunday’s Bears-Jets game.
