Jim is back!  Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America celebrate Jim’s return from the National Review cruise with three crazy martinis.  First, they marvel that President Trump is having trouble finding someone willing to serve as his chief of staff.  They also grumble as USA Today decides to tarnish Kyler Murray’s Heisman Trophy win by reporting that he had a few tweets that were unkind toward gays  – when he was just 15 years old.  And they roll their eyes as Time magazine unveils their ten finalists for “Person of the Year.”
