Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are pleasantly surprised to see incoming Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam back away from pushing Medicaid expansion, much to the consternation of liberals. They also shudder as a new generic poll of voters suggests Republicans are in for a very rough 2018, as Democrats lead big among women and young people and even hold slight edges among men and senior citizens. And Jim sounds off on actor Matt Damon’s insistence that he never knew about any of Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual assaults and harassment.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America offer all crazy martinis, starting with the fire that caused a power outage and snarled all air traffic at America’s busiest airport but officials say their emergency plans worked swimmingly. They also react to Sen. Joe Manchin blasting his fellow Democrats and urging Sen. Al Franken to withdraw his resignation. And they sigh over the revelation that Harry Reid and two other senators sneaked $22 million in UFO research dollars into the budget back in 2007. Way to go, Nevada. Way to go.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react to liberal Democrat Doug Jones winning a Senate seat over Republican Roy Moore in Alabama but see a silver lining in that it will be tougher for Democrats to link Moore to every GOP candidate in 2018. They also see some troubling parallels between 2017 election results and the ones in 2009 and 2010, suggesting Republicans may be on the brink of a Democratic tide similar to the Tea Party wave of 2010. They roll their eyes as Roy Moore refuses to concede the Senate race despite trailing by more than 20,000 votes, but Greg and Jim also get an idea from the Alabama Senate race that could boost the Senate GOP and solve Jim’s NFL woes at the same time.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react to the U.S. Supreme Court allowing President Trump’s travel ban on six nations to go into effect while the courts sort out the legal challenges. Regardless of whether the ban is a good idea, U.S. law clearly gives the president the authority to do this. They also shudder as the Republican National Committee follows President Trump’s lead and jumps back in to help Alabama U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore. And they shake their heads as Michigan Rep. John Conyers says he is “retiring” from Congress and endorses his son in the race to succeed him.

More

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome the decision of ABC News to punish Brian Ross over his sloppy, false, and damaging report about when President Trump urged Mike Flynn to make contact with Russia – just the latest in a long history of shameful reporting by Ross. They also erupt as Republican Texas Rep. Blake Farenthold reportedly used $84,000 of taxpayer money to settle a sexual harassment complaint made by his former staffer. And they chronicle the liberal hysteria following the Senate vote on tax reform – including assertions that the vote killed America, that it will kill millions of people, and that it is akin to raping poor people.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are thrilled to see Illinois Rep. Luis Gutierrez planning to leave Congress and take his toxic, divisive immigration rhetoric with him. They also slam Project Veritas for trying to plant a fake accusation against Roy Moore with the Washington Post in an attempt to discredit the Post’s earlier stories on Moore. And they they sigh as President Trump takes a political shot at Elizabeth Warren by calling her ‘Pocahontas’ while honoring Navajo Code Talkers from World War II at the White House, not because Warren doesn’t deserve criticism for her suspect claims of Cherokee heritage but for injecting politics into a a ceremony that should have been free of it.
