Greg and Jim are both here! Today, they welcome a Supreme Court decision extolling the importance of honoring the verdict of the people in each state during presidential elections.  They also shudder as China reports at least one case of the bubonic plague. And they have fun with the NBA allowing “personalized” messages on players’ jerseys that must come from a pre-approved list of messages.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America shudder at the public assassination of the Russian ambassador to Turkey and the truck attack at a Christmas market in Berlin.  They also unload on the 10 faithless electors in Monday’s Electoral College vote.  And they get a kick out of Pres. Obama urging Donald Trump to take it easy in issuing executive orders.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America correct the record on Tuesday’s faithless elector story and how the new information makes his actions far worse.  In today’s martinis, they react to a Time magazine piece suggesting people stop paying taxes if a president is ever elected again without winning the popular vote.  They also debunk the liberal fantasy that Democrats can somehow confirm Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court before the senators elected last month get sworn in on Jan. 3.  And they slam Pres. Obama for his incredibly misleading statement about terrorism on U.S. soil during his administration.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America groan as Rush Limbaugh says Donald Trump’s trillion dollar infrastructure bill could be a big success – just like FDR.  They also get a kick out of Democrats getting really excited over the prospect of a 78-year-old Joe Biden running for president in 2020.  And Jim unloads on a “faithless elector” from Texas, who says he cannot cast a vote for Trump.
