John, Scott, and Steve got together for a new edition of Power Line. Paul was unable to join due to a dentist appointment, which raises the question: would you rather get a root canal, or watch tonight’s State of the Union speech? Topics include the epidemic of mass sexual assault in Europe, and the podcast winds up with a terrific interview with Senator Jeff Sessions, which covers tonight’s speech, the omnibus budget bill, the filibuster, and more. You won’t want to miss it!

    The State of the Union or a Root Canal?

    I figure it’s about the same.

    John Hendrix:I figure it’s about the same.

    My last root canal took less time and was less painful.  It also had a positive objective.

    John, I think that you are unnecessarily insulting root canal procedures.

    One, you fall asleep. The other, you’re put to sleep. A draw.

    The Podcast reported that the people of Germany were “up in arms” due to the recent rapes at the new year’s celebrations.  If in fact they were “up in ARMS” this nonsense would not have happened.

    Guys, the typing in the background while the Senator was speaking was not indicative of a class act. He seemed bothered by it as well. You guys are way better than that. Love the podcast as always.

    Concur with Look Away regarding the typing and sighing.  Someone forgot to mute his mic, and for me it interfered with the podcast.

    I’ve had 3 root canals in the last 7 years.  As long as anesthesia is available, I’d MUCH prefer another root canal over listening to President Selfie drone on again.
