Join Jim and Greg as they close out the week grateful that three terrible stories are finally coming to light. First, they discuss the Cuomo administration admitting it delayed giving New York lawmakers the real numbers of COVID-related nursing home deaths because of how Trump and his administration might respond. They also unpack the latest horrifying details of Lincoln Project officials clearly knowing about John Weaver’s predatory ways and recklessly attacking anyone who criticizes them. And they react to lefties admitting that California’s love affair with progressive policies has been a massive failure.

    Well, Cuomo et al probably don’t need to worry about federal prosecutors any more.

    I don’t know that any big Lincoln Project donors believed they were actually on the up-and-up.  They were just useful.

    I have not been listening to this podcast regularly for a while.  (For one thing, the Federalist Radio Hour is more worth my time.)

    However, it’s kind of reassuring that Jim Geraghty is still always wrong.

    He strikes a bipartisan pose, arguing that California is failing, not because it’s run by Democrats unrestrained by Republican opposition, but because it’s a “one-party state”.

    Can he give us an example of a Republican one-party state that is failing?  (Utah?)  Giving no details, he mentions South Carolina in passing; but I haven’t heard that the middle class is fleeing that state.

    He is pleased as Punch that the mainstream media are finally reporting Democratic disasters in New York and California and the Lincoln Project.  

    He fails to understand that the point of the process is to dump the stories now, when they don’t make any difference, so that they will be old and forgotten news by the time the next election rolls around.

    In other words, the mainstream media report Republican scandals before the election, and Democratic scandals after the election.
