It’s a bleak search for good news on the Three Martini Lunch. Today, Jim and Greg cringe as reports show the federal government has been flailing unsuccessfully for a sound policy in Afghanistan, lying to the public about what’s been achieved, and wasting an obscene amount of taxpayer dollars. They also react to the mass shooting committed by a Saudi military officer at Pensacola Naval Air Station Friday, in what increasingly appears to be an act of Islamic terrorism. And they roll their eyes hard as the Democratic counsel for the House Judiciary Committee claims his young son asked him a deep and probing question about the character of the president.

    I think someone should parody that whole, “My son asked me this morning…” idiocy. Maybe someone could use their cat or dog?

     Shades of Jimmy Carter asking his little daughter Amy for advice on nuclear weapons policy!

    The guys’ account of the Pensacola shooting is strangely obtuse.

     They seem to have forgotten about the American Muslim officer who killed over a dozen people on a US military base.

    What happened in that case is precisely what the guys say couldn’t have happened this time. Blatant signs of conversion to jihadism were ignored by his superiors because they earned points toward promotion by forwarding his career.

    N.B.: That time, the killing was facilitated by a Clinton-era rule banning servicemen from carrying their weapons on base. In spite of subsequent Republican administrations, I believe the rule is still in force.
