It’s all good martinis today! Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react to the breaking news of an arrest in the case of pipe bomb-type devices sent to prominent Democrats. Then, they welcome the news that the Cook Political Report is moving the New Jersey U.S. Senate race to the toss-up column as a result of the immense ethical baggage hampering Sen. Bob Menendez. They also applaud 3.5 percent economic growth in the third quarter. And they enjoy watching the left inch away from attorney Michael Avenatti after his efforts to sink Brett Kavanaugh backfired and he says a white male should be the Democratic nominee in 2016.

    About elections: It is not true that they are held on the first Tuesday of the month. It is that they are held on the first Tuesday after the first Monday. So, if the 1st. of November ever happened on a Tuesday, that would not be election day. We’d have to wait a week, for the 8th. of the month.

    Could you explain Easter and Thanksgiving, George? I never got the timing of those holidays.

    I found this by using Google:

    On October 3, 1863, during the Civil War, Lincoln proclaimed a national day of thanksgiving to be celebrated on Thursday, November 26. The holiday was annually proclaimed by every president thereafter, and the date chosen, with few exceptions, was the last Thursday in November.

    I believe FDR changed it once to make a longer shopping season. But that is off the top of my head. And I do get headaches.

    I think a clergyman could best handle Easter.

    Easter is the first Sunday after the first full moon that occurs on or after the Vernal Equinox. (March 22 – April 25)

    NJ is going to be a tight race – hopefully costing the democrats millions to loose another seat.

    Thanks for the info. 

    Menendez is still ahead by seven. But that is unusual for a state like Jersey. The best thing about this is it made Chuck Schumer spend so much more than he wanted to. Let’s pray he spent it all in vain. This state has been mis governed for such a long time. Christie – for whom I voted – did ok. But people got turned of by his naked ambition. I so wanted his Lieutenant Governor to win. The new governor is a horror.
