Before the Deluge

First, let it be known that we recorded this podcast before The Memo® was released. We’ll dissect that (assuming there’s anything left to dissect) on next week’s show. Instead, we’ve got the great Bari Weiss from the New York Times to discuss the shaming of Nikki Haley, Aziz Ansari, and other cultural touchstones. Then, our old friend and consummate insider Haley Barbour talks immigration, memo speculation, and what exactly happened at the airport early this week.

Music from this week’s podcast: Ballad of Paladin, Have Gun Will Travel by Johnny Western

    It’s odd that hardly anyone (at least on the right) brings up labor force participation when mentioning the unemployment rate, anymore. I understand it’s still low compared to historical norms since at least the late 1970s. It used to be a staple comment to make during the end of the Obama administration.

    I always knew that James wore a black hat.

    There was a time, not all that long ago, when the black hat wearer was actually a/the good guy. I believe in you, James!
