It’s all good martinis today! Join Jim and Greg as they stunningly applaud former President Obama for telling liberals that just blasting people for not being sufficiently woke actually accomplishes nothing. They’re also glad to see the House of Representatives vote overwhelmingly to blame Turkey for the Armenian genocide committed over a century ago and discuss why that matters now. And they discuss the financial and ethical headaches facing the likely Democratic challenger to Maine GOP Sen. Susan Collins.
Friday afternoon, Maine Sen. Susan Collins gave an extensive explanation for her decision to support the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. Collins became the 50th vote in favor of Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
In her speech, Sen. Collins discussed Judge Kavanaugh’s judicial history and why she believes liberal concerns about Kavanaugh’s approach to health care, birth control, abortion, and executive power were not well-founded.
She also slammed the partisanship among lawmakers and outrage of special interest groups in the confirmation process. Collins also explained how she sorted through the allegations against Kavanaugh in the past few weeks.
Listen here for the full speech.

They also slam Republicans John McCain and Susan Collins for voting against very solid conservative nominees. And we react to the mainstream media temper tantrum after not getting to ask questions at some of Pres. Trump’s press conferences.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud Pres. Trump for the quiet, dignified way he honored a fallen Navy SEAL on Wednesday. They also slam GOP Sens.
