It’s nothing but good martinis for Jim and Greg on Monday’s 3 Martini Lunch!

First, Jim declares vindication after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 9-0 that Donald Trump must be allowed on the Colorado GOP primary ballot after that state’s supreme court kicked him off based on the insurrection clause of Section 3 in the 14th Amendment. Jim says without a conviction or even an indictment for insurrection, taking such action against Trump was a very weak legal position.

Next, they welcome the University of Florida eliminating DEI (“Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion”) programs and personnel. It’s not only the right move but it also showcases the leadership of Gov. Ron DeSantis getting this policy through the Florida legislature and University of Florida Pres. Ben Sasse for implementing it.

Finally, they cheer Oregon for correcting a 2020 referendum that decriminalized personal use amounts of drugs, including hard drugs like meth and heroin. Oregon subsequently fell to 50th in access to drug treatment and witnesses a spike in overdoses. Jim says this is another example of how reality did not turn out anything like the experts insisted it would.

    Rob Reiner was a great director… In the 20th century. He had a great run, starting with This Is Spinal Tap in 1984 through A Few Good Men in 1992. Five great films in between (The Sure Thing, Stand By Me, The Princess Bride, When Harry Met Sally, and Misery) and then nothing about garbage. People might make arguments for The American President in 1995 or even The Bucket List in 2007 but they are wrong. 

    He had one of the greatest streaks in cinematic history, but when it was done, he was done as a director.
