Join Jim and Greg as they start the week with three bad martinis, although the last one also contains a whole lot of crazy.

The start with the inevitable but disappointing news that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is suspending his campaign. It’s hard to think of candidates with stronger conservative principles and a record of accomplishment, but there were serious flaws with the campaign and there was one simple fact DeSantis had no chance of overcoming.

They also fume as Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport sent out a tweet on Saturday warning travelers of pro-Palestinian demonstrators blocking roads around the airport. But the airport also called them a “group in vehicles exercising first amendment rights.” But that is completely untrue. So why do these radical activists not suffer any consequences?

Finally, they shudder at new polling showing that most Americans think government has too much control while the elites and Ivy League graduates overewhelmingly think there is too much individual freedom. And just wait until you hear what they advocate to fight “climate change.”

    Arlington County, and the other jurisdictions in Northern Virginia, are slowly taking on DC governance.  DC also have nice well-off socialists.  They did not stop the decline, and sometimes lead the decline.

    They get to feel virtuous, while somebody else bears the actual costs.
