It’s a big day on the Three Martini Lunch! Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America start by welcoming the news that Leif Olson has been re-hired at the Labor Department just one day after he was falsely accused of anti-Semitism by Bloomberg Law. Then they are encouraged that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is also quite leery of any peace deal with the Taliban. And they unload on politicians in San Francisco for labeling the National Rifle Association.

Then, as the NFL begins it’s 100th season, Jim and Greg put a political twist on the occasion and have a lot of fun by holding a fantasy football draft involving the Democratic presidential candidates!

    No one picked Bernie? Ageism! Outrageous. He ought to talk to Colin Kaepernick about the lawsuit possibilities.

    Wait a minute. Is Jim Geraghty saying that if he seriously said/believed “Media Matters are geniuses,” he would deserve to be fired?

    And regarding Afghanistan, something else we should learn from history is not to put any part of the agreement in Arabic or Farsi or whatever. Don’t even allow translations. Because then they get to say “Oh, that doesn’t say we CAN’T commit terrorism. In Arabic/Farsi/whatever that means we MUST commit terrorism! So we’re exactly following what we agreed to. (Neener neener!)”

    Exactly.
