Jim and Greg begin today’s podcast with a tribute to former New York Sen. James Buckley. The brother of National Review Founder William F. Buckley, Jr., Jim Buckley served the nation with honor in World War II and then in all three branches of the federal government, including chief judge of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals. He was 100 years old.
Then they serve up their usual martinis, starting with a new Monmouth Poll showing New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez has just a 35 percent approval rating heading into an election year – thanks in part to yet another federal investigation examining allegations of corruption. They also wince at all the apparent mistakes made by local officials before and during the horrific wildfires that devastated Lahaina. Finally, they’re curious why Trump is urging all the other Republican presidential candidates to drop out if he has such a huge lead.
