    I most respectfully disagree with the idea that the lowest form of punditry is ‘what about when Obama did it?’ Having standards above coarse partisanship is quite good. I know it’s easy and perhaps overdone, but conservatives should like standards.

    Come on Jonah. I love you but get a new schtick. You’ve using the same stories about Trump followers and your interactions with them for almost 2 years.

    Jim — Maybe that’s because they still say the same things over and over and over again. If someone says 2+2=5 to me for two years, should I stop complaining about it because you get bored with the topic?

    Wait, John, didn’t you say you favored the two-state solution? I usually remember this stuff.

    Great show as always guys. Rob’s disdainful digression of Something’s Got To Give had me laughing out loud.

    I agree with Rob. too much award show speculation, and no sane person cares.

    It’s a better argument with a liberal than a conservative who didn’t support Trump.

    Agreed. But it’s best done to music.

    Even Bob Hope didn’t fly into the same American base every year and tell the same jokes. Same Vietnam jungle, same war, same C rations.

    No, that wasn’t nominated this year, as it was released in 2007. And it wasn’t nominated then, either.
