It’s a big day on the Three Martini Lunch!  Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America start by welcoming the news that Leif Olson has been re-hired at the Labor Department just one day after he was falsely accused of anti-Semitism by Bloomberg Law.  Then they are encouraged that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is also quite leery of any peace deal with the Taliban.  And they unload on politicians in San Francisco for labeling the National Rifle Association.

Then, as the NFL begins it’s 100th season, Jim and Greg put a political twist on the occasion and have a lot of fun by holding a fantasy football draft involving the Democratic presidential candidates!

Jim Geraghty of National Review and guest host Greg Knapp react to Wednesday night’s debate and Tulsi Gabbard’s blistering attack on Kamala Harris. They discuss Cory Booker’s “Kool-Aid” response to Joe Biden’s criticism of his mayoral tenure. And they weigh in on Kirsten Gillibrand bringing up an op-ed from 1981 to attack Joe Biden.

Rob Long of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America discuss President Trump’s last-minute decision to hold off on striking Iran. They also cover the intensifying Democratic presidential campaign, as Joe Biden and Cory Booker scuffle over race and Bernie Sanders explains why he’s now neck-and-neck with Elizabeth Warren in the polls. And they talk about the desperate poverty facing many Cubans as socialism fails yet again.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react to California Gov. Gavin Newsom greatly scaling back high-speed rail in the state, proving once again that the concept is not the dream solution that liberals think it is.  They also slam New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez for being outraged that people entering the U.S. illegally and illegal immigrants caught driving drunk are treated like criminals.  And they have fun with New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker declaring that meat consumption is destroying the planet and that he wants to make the existing model of the food system obsolete.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America blast Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam for suggesting that all of Virginia was as behind on race relations as he is and that only he can heal the divisions there because he’s a doctor.  They also explain why Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar is morally and factually bankrupt for suggesting that the only reason many lawmakers support Israel is because they get money from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.  And they patiently try to tell 2020 presidential candidate and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker that debating climate change is not the same as fighting the Nazis.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America discuss the news that Virginia Democratic Rep. Bobby Scott knew about the allegation against now-Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax before Fairfax took office.  They also react to former staffers unloading on 2020 Democratic hopeful and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar over her alleged cruelty and constant criticism.  And they marvel at how slowly many Democrats are reacting to the political chaos in Virginia and conclude that none of the officials embroiled in controversy will actually resign.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are thrilled to see over 300,000 jobs created in January, easily surpassing expectations.  They also smack Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine for the wimpiest possible opposition to the controversial abortion bill in Virginia and break down the logical problem in Kaine’s official position that he’s personally opposed to abortion but would never impose that view on others.  And they dissect the launch of New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker’s 2020 presidential campaign – with Jim offering an extensive review of Booker’s time as mayor of Newark.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America get a kick out of Trump protesters arguing about who is more oppressed.  They also rip New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker for testifying against the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions to be attorney general.  And they sigh as the insane people from Code Pink repeatedly disrupt the Sessions confirmation hearings.
