Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the news that Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan will not run for re-election next year following her disastrous handling of the so-called Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) and the city slashing funding to police. They also cringe as Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan releases a video before inauguration day showing he has plans to run for president in 2024. And they have a lot to say about the anti-gun mall Santa who told a small boy he couldn’t bring him a Nerf gun.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are finally back together. Today they relish Bernie Sanders doubling down on his push for incarcerated felons to have the right to vote, with Jim explaining how the issue could really damage Bernie if he becomes the nominee. They also roll their eyes as Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan seriously mulls a primary challenge to President Trump while still lagging badly behind juggernauts like John Kasich and William Weld. And Jim surprisingly agrees with the woke USA Today columnist who is slamming the likely No. 2 overall pick in this week’s NFL Draft for shying away from his conservative politics on social media – although Jim’s motivation for agreeing remains a tad suspicious.
Need a break from the memo frenzy? Have some martinis with us! Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America get a kick out of seeing the Democratic National Committee with less than half a million dollars on hand heading into the midterms while Republicans have $40 million ready to go. They also shake their heads as Maryland GOP Gov. Larry Hogan wants to opt out of the Trump’s administration’s plans for offshore energy exploration, a move made much easier by government already granting an exemption for Florida. And they bang their heads against the desk as PolitiFact hired unhinged former Florida Rep. Alan Grayson to be part of their team, only to reverse course after liberals and conservatives howled in protest. Jim and Greg also share their unvarnished thoughts on Groundhog Day and offer their Superbowl predictions.
