Join Jim and Greg as they serve up three bad martinis tempered with some brief banter about the NFL Draft. First, they wince as the economy actually suffered negative growth in the first quarter of 2022. Then, they hammer the Biden administration for its new “Disinformation Governance Board,” which appears to be little more than an effort to stop speech it doesn’t like. And they react to a major escalation in state-run Russian commentary, which now openly refers to the Ukrainian conflict as a holy war and frequently suggests the use of nuclear weapons.

    This “disinformation” board sounds like a jobs program for ex Twitter censors.

    Too bad this disinformation board didn’t exist when Harry Reid was saying Romney didn’t pay taxes. (Sorry, just annoyed that next week I’ll be flying into “Harry Reid International Airport”.)

    It would be fun to watch them twist themselves into knots, explaining why what Harry Reid said wasn’t really a lie.

    “He believed it at the time.”  Another unfalsifiable.

    “So, when he later said he had been lying, that statement was a lie?”

    ”No, he honestly believed he had been lying — but he was wrong!”

    This sounds like a joke, but the liberal defense of physicist (and possible traitor) Robert Oppenheimer really does go something like that.
