Join Jim and Greg as they cheer on conservative activists trying to sink the nomination of the unqualified and radical HHS nominee, Xavier Becerra. They also roll their eyes as New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo claims he had no idea his actions offended any of the women accusing him of sexual harassment, and are disgusted that the media consider this a bigger story than the nursing home scandal. And they react to the revelation that the FBI gave Capitol Police had a fairly detailed warning of what would happen at the Capitol on January 6 but also told them not to take any actions as a result of it.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are back from celebrating Christmas with three more prestigious Three Martini Lunch Awards. Today they discuss the most significant scandals of 2018 and then sift through a ton of possibilities for the best and worst political theater of 2018. And maybe, just maybe, there will be a moment from the Kavanaugh hearings that fits one or more of these categories.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for August 1, 2017 it’s the Summer’s Almost Ov…. oops, I mean it’s the Scaramucci Does the Fandango edition of the podcast with your hosts Todd Feinburg and Mike Stopa.

Our topics today range from absurdity to armageddon, from Springtime for Kelly to Nuclear Winter for Kim.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud Defense Secretary James Mattis for telling CBS News that he doesn’t lose sleep over anything but makes other people lose sleep.  They also scratch their heads over Jared Kushner allegedly discussing a secret communications channel with Moscow during the Trump transition and wonder why a real estate guy is dealing with national security.  They shudder a bit as Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly says people wouldn’t leave the house if they knew what he knows about terrorism.  And they are not exactly teary as they discuss the death of former Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America cheer Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly for stating that he will enforce immigration laws, that criminals such as drunk drivers will be deported, and that we do need to secure the southern border.  They also sigh at reports that National Security Adviser Gen. H.R. McMaster reportedly wants tens of thousands of ground troops to finish the job in Iraq and Syria.  And they discuss the Huffington Post column urging the disenfranchisement of white men for a time in order to advance the progressive agenda, only to have HuffPost pull the piece because they weren’t sure who wrote it.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America enjoy WikiLeaks expose the Democratic panic after Pres. Obama publicly said he only learned of Hillary Clinton’s email server through the media.  They also unload on both Megyn Kelly and Newt Gingrich for their exhausting and devolving debate on Tuesday night.  And they shake their heads as Mike Pence is sent to Utah to shore up that state for the GOP ticket.

Though I can’t seem to find a transcript, if you can stomach the 2011 broadcast of Howard Stern’s interview with Megyn Kelly, Howard asks her a serious question about whether Roger Ailes applied a “conservative litmus test” when he hired her.
