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 shake their heads as infighting among congressional Republicans and even White House staffers clouds the push for a vote. They also cast suspicion on President Trump’s vow to just let Obamacare continue if Congress failed to pass the bill. And they have some much needed fun by examining the push to rename the airport in Las Vegas for former Sen. Harry Reid.

Passing through airport security seems more and more like being admitted into prison. First they confiscate two things: anything remotely sharp and… your belt. Then you’re standing in line with a bunch of barefoot people holding up their pants up with one hand and their sole possessions in the other. The travelers who passed through security hours earlier are looking on and chanting “Fresh fish! Fresh fish!”
Upon reflection, that last part doesn’t sound plausible enough to deem reliable memory. But you get the idea.
