May is a huge month for political primary elections in even-numbered years (and a few odd ones). Oregon, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, and Idaho held primary elections on Tuesday. The Keystone State’s highly competitive GOP primary elections for their statewide offices – all of which are open seats – drew the most attention, with one […]

Two of my favorite acronyms are SNAFU and FUBAR. They’re not favorite federal agencies, although they could describe many of them. “Situation normal, all fouled up” is the first one. “Fouled up beyond all recognition” is the second one. Other renditions replace “fouled” with a more colorful f word. Preview Open

Join Jim and Greg as they breathe a tad easier after Vladimir Putin does not announce any escalation of the Ukraine war in his Victory Day speech. They also fume as the Biden administration still can’t find the courage to tell protesters to stay away from the homes of Supreme Court justices. And recently uncovered voting records add to their unease about the idea of Sen. Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania.

 

Trump Just Did David McCormick a Big Favor

 

Former President Donald Trump hasn’t hidden his ambition for another return to the White House. Short of an announcement, he’s strongly hinted that his supporters will “like” his eventual announcement. His poll numbers look good right now.

Meanwhile, according to Ballotpedia, Trump has issued 442 political endorsements since leaving office. That includes 14 gubernatorial candidates and 16 US Senate contests. He previously endorsed author Sean Parnell for the GOP nomination for US Senate. But Parnell dropped out after losing an ugly child custody case to his ex-wife.

Television celebrity doctor Mehmet Oz announced this week unconventionally that he’s running for US Senate in Pennsylvania, where incumbent Republican Pat Toomey is retiring. It’s a wide-open race with multiple candidates in both parties. Hedge fund CEO David McCormick, a southwest Pennsylvania native, Bush 43 Treasury official, and Gulf War veteran quickly followed the Oz […]

Jim and Greg offer up three martinis and their tongue-in-cheek analysis of a Christmas tradition their wives greatly enjoy. First, the welcome the news that CNN has suspended Chris Cuomo but wonder if he will end up getting much more than a slap on the wrist. They’re also encouraged by the oral arguments on the Mississippi abortion case at the Supreme Court and hammer Justice Sotomayor for her weak argument about when life begins. They’re less than impressed with the Pennsylvania GOP Senate bid of Dr. Oz. And as December begins, they have plenty to say about the Hallmark Christmas movies that so many women love to watch and so many men have to endure.

 

Join Jim and Greg for an upbeat Friday edition!  Today, after assessing Joe Biden’s latest live television mess, they welcome the three-phase plan to bring the U.S. economy back to life. They also marvel at the medicinal and practical ways our hospitals are treating COVID-19. And they break down the curious arguments of Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz, both of whom became household names courtesy of Oprah.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America marvel at the 17-point lead Ohio Sen. Rob Portman is amassing in his re-election bid.  They also shake their heads as Donald Trump promises a medical report on Dr. Oz and then abruptly changes course.  And they react to Colin Powell’s hacked emails that include frustration he was denied a speech at a university because of the criticism the school received for paying Hillary Clinton a huge sum.
