Hogan vs. DeSantis, Who You Got?

 

Maryland’s Republican Governor Larry Hogan admits that he never read the Parental Rights in Education bill (the one Disney calls the “Don’t Say Gay” bill) but that didn’t stop him from throwing shade at Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

“I didn’t really actually see the details of the legislation, but the whole thing seems like … just a crazy fight,” Hogan said.  “It concerns me that DeSantis is always talking about, he was not demanding businesses do things but he was telling the cruise lines what they had to do, he was telling local schools what they had to be mandating and now he wants to criticize Disney for expressing how they feel about that bill. I mean, they have every right to, we have a thing called Freedom of Speech,” he continued. “They can come out and say what they think. I think the bill was kind of absurd, and not something that would’ve happened in our state.”

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome Mitch McConnell’s efforts to convince Sen. Joe Manchin to switch parties as Democrats savage him for opposing BBB. They also dissect reports that Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is listening to Republicans urging him to run for U.S. Senate, what his odds would look like, and whether conservatives would get behind him. And they remember one of the worst examples of media malpractice that played out 33 years ago this week during a terrorist incident in Los Angeles.

Brooding Over Cicadas? Just Eat Them. The UN Says So.

 

“Brood X” Cicadas are making their appearance in a big way this weekend in northern Virginia. They’re a nice, harmless, and (eventually) noisy diversion from our current theater. But just wait – someone will politicize them, too. You know it’s coming.

In a sense, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan already has. He’s declared the months of May and June as “Magicicada Months.” Never missing a chance to promote his state, he notes that the bugs sport the official colors of Maryland.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the news that Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan will not run for re-election next year following her disastrous handling of the so-called Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) and the city slashing funding to police. They also cringe as Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan releases a video before inauguration day showing he has plans to run for president in 2024. And they have a lot to say about the anti-gun mall Santa who told a small boy he couldn’t bring him a Nerf gun.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are finally back together.  Today they relish Bernie Sanders doubling down on his push for incarcerated felons to have the right to vote, with Jim explaining how the issue could really damage Bernie if he becomes the nominee.  They also roll their eyes as Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan seriously mulls a primary challenge to President Trump while still lagging badly behind juggernauts like John Kasich and William Weld.  And Jim surprisingly agrees with the woke USA Today columnist who is slamming the likely No. 2 overall pick in this week’s NFL Draft for shying away from his conservative politics on social media – although Jim’s motivation for agreeing remains a tad suspicious

We now have another Republican office holder who has found lots to criticize with Trump and the Mueller Report. Maryland Governor Larry Hogan harshly criticized Trump over the findings of the Mueller Report saying “it certainly does not completely exonerate the President as he said.”  In Manchester, New Hampshire today, Governor Hogan said “There was some […]

Today’s greatest conservative writer George Will has a great column about Maryland Governor Larry Hogan in today’s Washington Post.  While I certainly prefer Bill Weld to Trump, I prefer Larry Hogan to Bill Weld.  Since this article is behind the paywall after viewing 10 articles, I will cite only the first, third and last paragraphs: […]

Need a break from the memo frenzy?  Have some martinis with us!  Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America get a kick out of seeing the Democratic National Committee with less than half a million dollars on hand heading into the midterms while Republicans have $40 million ready to go.  They also shake their heads as Maryland GOP Gov. Larry Hogan wants to opt out of the Trump’s administration’s plans for offshore energy exploration, a move made much easier by government already granting an exemption for Florida.  And they bang their heads against the desk as PolitiFact hired unhinged former Florida Rep. Alan Grayson to be part of their team, only to reverse course after liberals and conservatives howled in protest.  Jim and Greg also share their unvarnished thoughts on Groundhog Day and offer their Superbowl predictions.
