Join Jim and Greg as they enjoy watching the left openly fight over whether schools should have in-person instruction right now. They also cringe as Russia send troops into Kazakhstan to help crush protesters. And they discuss the January 6th anniversary and why one critical figure has never been found.

It’s all good martinis today!  Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react to the breaking news of an arrest in the case of pipe bomb-type devices sent to prominent Democrats.  Then, they welcome the news that the Cook Political Report is moving the New Jersey U.S. Senate race to the toss-up column as a result of the immense ethical baggage hampering Sen. Bob Menendez.  They also applaud 3.5 percent economic growth in the third quarter.  And they enjoy watching the left inch away from attorney Michael Avenatti after his efforts to sink Brett Kavanaugh backfired and he says a white male should be the Democratic nominee in 2016.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America cheer a new poll showing DNC Vice chairman Keith Ellison falling behind in his bid to become attorney general in Minnesota.  They also cringe at a New York Times story describing President Trump resistance to using secure phone lines to talk with his family and friends and how China and Russia are almost certainly listening in.  And they throw up their hands as mainstream media outlets admit they have no idea who is responsible for the pipe bomb packages but already blame President Trump and conservative commentators.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are enraged that someone would send explosive devices to the Obamas, Clintons, CNN, and others and hope that those responsible for threatening or attacking public figures – or anyone else – are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.  They’re also glad to see Indiana Republican Senate hopeful Mike Braun either closing in on Sen. Joe Donnelly or even taking the lead.  They slam MSNBC’s Chuck Todd and others for definitively declaring that there’s no evidence of criminals being part of the thousands of Central Americans headed towards the U.S. border when there is evidence to the contrary.  And they weather the final attack ads aimed at their favorite teams ahead of Sunday’s Bears-Jets game.

Snakes on a Plane – Academics vs the TSA, round n+1


The airport security line has ground to a standstill. Again. Some bozo packed a giant plastic penis in his carry-on, and of course the bozos working for the TSA couldn’t resist. From the depths of the man’s carry-on, one TSA worker unsheathes “this mouse penis by its base, like it was Excalibur.” Yep. A Gigantic. Plastic. Mouse. Penis. 3-D printed.

If it makes you feel any better, it’s for science. The biologist carrying it is on his way to a two-day conference, and so has no checked luggage. Other times, scientists carry on stuff that can’t go into the cargo hold even when they’re checking luggage. Permits issued to biologists to collect live specimens may stipulate the specimens must be hand-carried onto planes. Other live specimens simply don’t travel well in cargo holds. A duffel bag full of ants. Live frogs in Tupperware containers. Roaches. These things:
