Join Jim and Greg offer a quick update on yesterday’s Don Lemon saga before serving up their three martinis for the day. First, they welcome new studies from the Lancet and beyond showing people who developed natural immunity from a bout with COVID did just as well as the vaccinated against future cases and that natural immunity was stronger against reinfection than the jab. Those who demanded getting shots to keep your job or just be part of society will sure to file this news in the memory hole as quickly as possible. They also unload at the California school district that decided to end high school honors classes in English because they were not diverse enough. Jim explains why those school officials took exactly the wrong course of action. Finally, react to several flawed and failed GOP House and Senate candidates from last year gearing up to run again.

Jim and Greg will be back with brand new podcasts on Thursday and Friday. As they both go on vacation today, let’s look back at their analysis of the midterm elections from two weeks ago. At the time they noted some of the big races that slipped away from the GOP, cheered the big wins in places like Florida and Texas, and discussed what lessons can be learned in the immediate aftermath of the voting.
Scot Bertram, general manager of 101.7 FM Radio Free Hillsdale, is in for Jim today. Scot and Greg discuss the dramatic lurch leftward in Michigan during the midterm elections and how things somehow got even worse in Scot’s home state of Illinois. They also groan over Michigan’s full embrace of abortion and Montana voters rejecting a law requiring doctors to care for all babies born alive. They end on the lighter side as reports suggest some writers at Saturday Night Live are refusing to work this week in protest of host Dave Chappelle.
Jim and Greg shake off the surprise of of an underwhelming midterm election for Republicans to dissect why Democrats were able to win so many races that the GOP seemed to have a good shot at. They chronicle the key races that got away, cheer the big wins in places like Florida and Texas, and note that the Republicans still have a good chance at winning the House and have a path left to claiming the majority in the Senate. And they try to determine what the GOP need to do differently or better in future election cycles.
