Your Friday treat is three crazy martinis, but only after basking in the glow of the 40th anniversary of the Miracle on Ice and the national morale boost a bunch of unheralded college kids gave us by defeating the supposedly unbeatable Soviet Union in the 1980 Winter Olympics. Then, join Jim and Greg and as they bang their heads against the table after Nevada Democrats say they can’t promise results of Saturday’s caucuses on the same day they’re held. They also weigh in on Michael Bloomberg’s video of crickets chirping and his fellow Democrats shifting uncomfortably when he asked if any of them had ever started a business – was it deception or just a candidate making a point? And as California Gov. Gavin Newsom says doctors should be able to prescribe housing just like they prescribe insulin and antibiotics, Jim offers Newsom a devastating reminder of which party led California into the homelessness crisis and many other problems.

    Next they’ll have doctors prescribing sex.

    Many years ago (I was helping with a medical research project that had access to the medical records of a lot of elderly patients) I came across doctors “prescribing” (well, not exactly, but suggesting) dogs for some patients. This seemed associated with the doctors concluding these particular patients were hypochondriacs who were coming to the doctor just to have someone to talk to and/or they were unreasonably sedentary. A dog requires care and getting out to walk, where these patients would meet other people, and so the visits to the doctor’s office dropped off.

    Re sex, one patient who was coming in about once every month or two but was not “prescribed” a dog suddenly didn’t visit for over a year. At the next visit, the doctor took note that the patient had about a year earlier become attached to a “boyfriend”!

    Remember, Jim Geraghty is always wrong.

    He sneers at the Democratic campaigns who are complaining about Bloomberg’s misleading debate ad, because only “stupid” people could be fooled.

    He forgets that Epsilon Semimorons are a significant part of the Democratic primary vote.

    Indeed, a great many people are under the misapprehension that putting falsehoods on the air is against the law.
