We have two good martinis for you today as America continues to go through the COVID-19 challenge. Join Jim and Greg as they welcome news of two different drugs that that seem to be effective in treating and even preventing coronavirus. They also wave goodbye to Republican William Weld and Democrat Tulsi Gabbard as they exit the 2020 presidential race with a whopping three delegates between them. And they have some choice words for the college kids on Spring Break showing little regard for their fellow citizens.

    Go ahead kids and have your fun at the beach. “Eat, drink, and be merry for tomorrow…”

    No, no. I want you to remain healthy, for tomorrow you may be in the work force, and when the social security “trust fund” runs dry in about 10 years, your taxes will increase three fold to help fund my generation’s retirement. 

    At that point, we oldsters may be the ones having fun.

    (Oh boy. This period of self isolation is turning me into a vengeful scold.)

    Something more likely than needing a hospital for a car accident for these young twits? Needing a hospital for alcohol poisoning.

    Second day in a row Jim Geraghty urges Bernie Sanders to throw in the towel.

    He doesn’t say why: to simplify the Democratic campaign for President? Is this any way for a self-styled conservative to behave?

    Oh, well. “Remember, Jim Geraghty is always wrong.”

    If Biden collapses, physically or mentally, then if he is still in the race Bernie Sanders is the heir apparent.

    That might be the only way for Bernie to get the nomination. Although I expect that even in such a situation, the smoke-filled-room would come up with someone else. After all, most of the votes were still for Biden, not Bernie.

    I agree, its why Bernie is staying in the race, and also that if Biden has fallen and can’t get up, the super-delegates will pull some procedural rabbit outa their butts to give the nomination to anyone – anyone but Bernie. I also believe Bernie should run it to the bitter bitter end. I think after this cycle some of the closed primary states – like Florida – may also have a closed ballot, meaning that the candidate also has to be a democrat – to prevent “independents” like Bernie from running on the Democrat ticket.

    I know ads are served from a different server – and the podcast has no control over them – but is there some way to sync the sound levels … Listening in the wee wee hours of the morning (down low) and the ad comes up and blows me out of the room… There has to be some way to sync the audio levels?
