Happy New Year! Join Jim and Greg as they cheer the government making the right choice to void a major penalty for distilleries that produced hand sanitizer to meet demand in the early months of the pandemic. They also discuss President Trump’s phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, in which Trump said Georgia officials had not done enough to investigate voting irregularities and said he needed to find nearly 12,000 votes. And they have fun with the total lunacy of House Democrats removing gendered language and Rep. Emanuel Cleaver ending his open prayer of the new session by saying “Amen and A woman.”
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome Sen. Tom Cotton’s measured view of Russia, not hysterical but also not blind to Russia’s troubling record on many issues including their lack of participation in the war against radical Islam. They also push back against columnists who don’t want Charleston murderer Dylann Roof executed because of childhood problems, societal issues or other possible factors in him committing the church murders. And they discuss the the pickup truck question that had Twitter on fire earlier this week.
