Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America break down the news of Maine and Nevada refusing to join the popular vote pact to change presidential elections. Michael Avenatti is on his way to losing his license to practice law. And Baltimore’s Mayor wants criminals to swap bullets for boxing gloves.

Jim Geraghty of the National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America break down the Republican Party’s special election victory in Pennsylvania’s 12th District. They also grumble about the early release of ‘American Taliban’ anonymous Lindh and use the discussion of terrorism to highlight Jim’s brand new book, “Between Two Scorpions.” And they’re not exactly shocked to learn about Michael Avenatti getting indicted on a new series of criminal charges for allegedly defrauding his former client, Stormy Daniels. However, they do use it as yet another example of the media lavishing praise on an obviously disturbed figure just because it helps their political narrative.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react as Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick fails even to grasp the timeline of events this summer and then radically walks back her allegations that Brett Kavanaugh drugged and raped girls while in high school.  They also wince as the National Republican Congressional Committee pulls back major support for four embattled House incumbents.  And they roll their eyes as CNN asks Sen. Mazie Hirono if allegations that Kavanaugh threw ice at someone in a car 33 years ago is disqualifying for his bid to be a Supreme Court justice and Hirono gives another ludicrous response.

Anger over the clearly politically driven power grab and coup attempt hijacking a constitutional process that was about to seat a Conservative appointee on the Supreme Court. Granted, most of my circle are right of center. My monthly cigar group is a seething, frothing group of men of a certain age who are incredulous over the blatantly political, rank accusations. However, what has surprised me are those friends who dislike, even despise President Trump, who are deeply uncomfortable with this sad, disgusting chapter in our country’s political history. They also believe this is a horrific political hit job on a decent man.

I am old enough to remember Obama’s liberal appointees — Justices Kagan and Sotomayer — enjoying their confirmation process with dignity and respect.

I remember Justice Clarence Thomas being branded and still being accused of sexual assault with zero proof.
