With all three bartenders back together and John Yoo in the host chair, the gang wonders why it is that Robert F. Kennedy Jr is so far making the most sense in the 2024 presidential race, how it is that Kevin McCarthy has (stop the presses!) actually impressed Lucretia, and why the obviously political attacks on Justice Clarence Thomas expose the left at their power-grasping worst.
But then we get back to school, with John expressing his usual faux-puzzlement about the New York Times‘s genuine puzzlement of why conservatives “still” like Aristotle. Too bad there isn’t an Aristotle for Dummies title we can send the Times, but we do manage to sort out John.
Finally, we round out this episode with some mockery of the high octane decadence of the ruling class as seen by the scheduing of the Met Gala and the White House Correspondents Dinner within 48 hours of each other last week. It must be exhausting for our rulers to keep up this kind of social schedule, not to mention the expense of the wardrobe. Tune in for Piers Morgan’s fantastic headline about the scene, and grab a can of Raid.

The person I suspect of being behind the release of info on Biden’s own cache of long held classified documents and the recent leaks about his business shenanigans while vice president,* and who I expect to jump into the ring once his demise is clear: Hillary Clinton. Let the ridicule begin!
* Who else besides Barack Obama would the NYT run cover for?
Rawls? John might as well have asked Lucretia about Foucault. Mr. Yoo is a braver man than I!
When people make this distinction between ethics and morality–“Ethics has replaced morality”–what do they mean by “ethics”?
One heartbeat away…
In re the departure of Rochelle Walensky from the thoroughly corrupt and lacking in credibility Centers for Disease Control: has Conrad Black ever recanted the effusive praise he heaped on her?
I keep forgetting to mention this, but with more McDonalds talk on this episode I’m going to get it done. In 2018, I mentioned the old joke about a death row prisoner requesting a McRib and Shamrock shake as his last meal. Since they never occur together he figured they couldn’t kill him without fulfilling the last meal. John had this comment and promised a signed copy of a book to the first person to find the duo in the wild.
In March of 2021, my local McDonalds somehow still had McRibs when the shakes rolled out. I let Troy Senik know through a private message and he let John know. I didn’t mention the book figuring they’d realize it after reading the comment but I never got it. I didn’t push the issue though. Maybe @stevenhayward and @lucretia can get John to fulfill the terms of his promise.
