Listen to “House GOP Chaos, Media Bury Times Square Attack, Short-Sighted Climate Logic” on Spreaker.
Happy New Year! Jim and Greg are back to their usual format but kick off the year with three crazy martinis after discussing the cardiac arrest of Buffalo Bills defensive back Damar Hamlin Monday night. They dig into the chaos within the House GOP conference as Kevin McCarthy fails to win enough votes to become Speaker of the House on the first ballot. They also wince as the Islamic extremist who attacked police with a machete in Times Square on New Year’s Eve was on the FBI’s radar. And they hammer the media for burying the story once the motive was known. Finally, they roll their eyes as a New York Times column argues people need to be looking for shorter mates so they can have shorter children who will be less of a strain on our planet.
