Join Jim and Greg as they welcome West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin saying he will not vote to end the filibuster in the U.S. Senate. They also unload on AOC, Jennifer Rubin, Evan McMullin, and other lefties who want to see anyone supporting President Trump’s legal challenges added to lists of people who should be shunned from government, academia, and polite society. And they shudder as the Obamacare architect who thinks people are no longer useful after age 75 is named to Joe Biden’s COVID task force.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America start popping the popcorn as Democrats start squabbling with each other over 2020.  Rahm Emanuel calls Beto O’Rourke a “loser” and many Democrats are very frosty with New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand for leading the charge against Minnesota Sen. Al Franken last year.  They also shake their heads in the wake of Michael Cohen’s guilty plea as the president who says he only selects the best people winds up calling Cohen weak and not very smart.  And they react to the story of a Southwest Airlines employee mocking a girl named Abcde but also point out the girl’s mom is setting her daughter up for a lifetime of teasing and frustration.  They also share some of their favorite stories about unusual names.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America savor three good martinis for conservatives.  First, they applaud Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse for reminding his fellow senators of the constitutional purpose of the judicial branch, how Brett Kavanaugh out to be evaluated, and why the political “charades” needs to stop.  They also cheer Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey for naming former Sen. Jon Kyl to replace John McCain in the U.S. Senate until the 2020 election.  And they welcome Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s decision not to seek another term and reflect on his disastrous record in both Washington and the Windy City.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are very encouraged by the final two names President Trump is reportedly considering for the Supreme Court vacancy.  They also cringe as Trump once again insists he lost the popular vote only through rampant voter fraud by illegal aliens.  And they slam Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel for claiming a lack of federal assistance is to blame for the huge number of murders in his city.
