Hillsdale College Radio General Manager and Radio Free Hillsdale Hour Host Scot Bertram is in for Jim today. Join Scot and Greg as they dig into an Italian study showing solar panels generate far more carbon dioxide than natural gas, and that the United Nations never took Chinese statistics into account – even though it produces 80 percent of solar panels. They also sigh as Massachusetts Gov. Maura Healey announces a state of emergency due to the number of migrants pouring into her state. But instead of blaming the issue on the Biden administration’s porous border or refusal to deport, she chalks it up to the government being too slow to approve work authorization for the migrants. Finally, they end on a lighter note by discussing the promotion from the Subway sandwich chain that will land the winner $50,000 in Subway gift cards in exchange for changing their name to Subway.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America start popping the popcorn as Democrats start squabbling with each other over 2020. Rahm Emanuel calls Beto O’Rourke a “loser” and many Democrats are very frosty with New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand for leading the charge against Minnesota Sen. Al Franken last year. They also shake their heads in the wake of Michael Cohen’s guilty plea as the president who says he only selects the best people winds up calling Cohen weak and not very smart. And they react to the story of a Southwest Airlines employee mocking a girl named Abcde but also point out the girl’s mom is setting her daughter up for a lifetime of teasing and frustration. They also share some of their favorite stories about unusual names.
