Join Jim and Greg as they close out the week with two good martinis and a very bad one. First, they remain very pleasantly surprised at how strong the House GOP messaging has been throughout the debt ceiling debate – to the point where even much of the mainstream media is admitting it. They also breathe a sigh of relief as Doug Mastriano decided not to run for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania after getting crushed in the governor’s race last year. Finally, they shudder as Democratic Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton sounds the alarm that the Pentagon has “no direction whatsoever” in confronting the role of artificial intelligence in the militaries of our adversaries and he says we don’t have very long to prepare.
