Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the sanity of Attorney General Bill Barr in the face of congressional Democrats who refuse to acknowledge the violence and destruction in the streets, much less do anything about it. They also enjoy hearing how Sen. Kamala Harris may have damaged her chance of being Joe Biden’s running mate. And they get a kick out of the tone-deaf rich people complaining to the New York Times about having to ride out the pandemic at their summer homes in the Hamptons.

    So are the governors out of the running, Michigan and New Mexico? Were they ever really in the running?

    I think it was one of Jonah’s recent guests who mentioned that except for Geraldine Ferraro, going back maybe to LBJ the Democrat VP nominee has been a senator. I forget how far back it goes and I haven’t confirmed the piece of trivia yet.

    Thanks for the Bradley Foundation hat tip. I am currently reading Andrew Roberts’ book. I enjoyed watching the interview of Andrew Roberts.

    Eh, Tim Caine was a sitting Senator, but also a former governor. Boom. Theory ‘sploded, if you ask me. He had only been Senator since 2013.

    Geraldine Ferraro was in the House. (Exception already noted.)

    In 1972, while Eagleton was a Senator, he was replaced on the ticket with Ambassador Shriver, who had all executive positions in his past.

    1940, Henry Wallace was a former university president and Sec of Ag.

    1932 & 1936, John Nance Gardner was Speaker of the House.

    In 1924, Bryan was a governor.

    So, all the rest were senators in that time.

    Yeah, it’s hard to draw any conclusions with such a small sample size. Not sure how to score Caine either.

    But the data supports that they do go for senators quite often.

    It’s disappointing that Greg Corombos is still pushing the “police killed George Floyd”…. narrative.

    Well, a Governor has a record that can be objectively evaluated.

    Policies the Democratic base likes will tend to fail. Policies which succeed will likely be odious to the Democratic base. So the Governor loses one way or the other.

    A Senator is simply responsible for flapping his lips, and is hard to hold accountable for anything.
