Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America enjoy watching more Clinton campaign fingerpointing – this time at Huma Abedin. They rip the intelligence community for being willing to offer anonymous stories to the press on Russian election hacking but being unwilling to brief members of Congress.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political podcast for November 1, 2016 it’s the Conrad Black’s Life Matters edition. Our special guest is Lord Conrad Black founder of The National Post, author of highly acclaimed biographies of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Richard Nixon, and Canadian TV personality. Lord Black is an outspoken Trump supporter who writes for the National Review. He will discuss with us, among other things, what makes America the greatest country on earth and how the “Bush-Clinton-Obama co-regency” threatens to derail that greatness. Further, as a personal acquaintance and longtime business associate of Donald Trump he attests to Trump’s solidity as a businessman and loyalty as a friend (to say nothing of his basic sanity).
Also, we’ll talk about FBI Director James Comey’s leap back into the middle of the 2016 election and the torpedo he launched at the HMS Hillary last Friday by reopening her email investigation.

The saving grace of the 2016 Presidential election for conservatives is Hillary Clinton’s candidacy and subsequent nomination for the Democrats. By contrast, Donald Trump is so adept at distracting attention from his blatantly superior policy positions with (let’s call them) his personality warts that conservatives are often at each others’ throats defending and attacking him. With Hillary, at least, everyone can pile on with joy when her corruption is exposed (excepting, of course, those conservatives who have actually endorsed Clinton).
So I am hoping at least that the entire Ricochet cosmos is enjoying those zany but adorable couples, Hillary and James and Huma and Tony starring in the latest hit comedy remake of The Honeymooners (“to the moon, Hillary!”). (Perhaps there is a more current metaphor).More
