Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the news that it looks rather unlikely that the Senate Democrats will be able to pass a version of the Build Back Better legislation by it’s self-imposed Christmas deadline. They also unload on the Biden administration after it cut the video feed of a presentation by a Taiwanese official who offered a presentation showing Taiwan as a different color than China on the map. And they react to Chris Wallace bolting Fox News for CNN while offering a modest suggestion for his replacement.

    Santa probably gets his coal from China, because it’s cheaper.

    Jim should have pretended to get cut off after saying “Taiwan is an independent country.”

    Do they even see the irony? Cutting the feed of someone who’s saying things you fear would upset a dictatorship, during a democracy summit?

    On the subject of Chris Wallace, not a great deal remains to be seen:

    Wallace also breaks from the Fox News group when it comes to party affiliation. Unlike the majority of journalists who avoid tying themselves to one party, the veteran journalist is a registered Democrat in Washington, D.C., which he has argued “is purely pragmatic and based on his desire to participate in local elections,” according to an interview with The Washington Post back in 2006.

    Wallace has said he has cast votes for both Democratic and Republican candidates in presidential contests.

    Oh, yeah, the old “I’ve voted for both parties” scam!

    Is he claiming that he’s not allowed to vote for Democrats unless he registers as a Democrat?  Even if that’s true for primaries, it still seems to suggest that he wants to be able to vote for his preferred Democrats in the general elections.
