Happy New Year! Jim and Greg are back to their usual format but kick off the year with three crazy martinis after discussing the cardiac arrest of Buffalo Bills defensive back Damar Hamlin Monday night. They dig into the chaos within the House GOP conference as Kevin McCarthy fails to win enough votes to become Speaker of the House on the first ballot. They also wince as the Islamic extremist who attacked police with a machete in Times Square on New Year’s Eve was on the FBI’s radar. And they hammer the media for burying the story once the motive was known. Finally, they roll their eyes as a New York Times column argues people need to be looking for shorter mates so they can have shorter children who will be less of a strain on our planet.

    FBI missed another one on their radar – who could have guessed – they were too worried about PTA meetings and pushing the Steele Dossier

    Somebody on Fox News —it may have been Greg Gutfeld — pointed out the scam behind the New York Times column on the benefits of shortness.

    It isn’t actually height, but weight that translates into a greater impact on the environment.

    But, of course, they would have gotten in trouble if they said that.

    “Researchers found that at 70 years old, the taller men were expected to live approximately 2 years less than those who were shorter.”  If short people live longer, they will use up more resources. (FWIW, I’m 6’3″)
