Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are glad to see Tennessee Rep. Marsha Blackburn expanding her lead over Democrat Phil Bredesen in the tight Tennessee Senate race. They also cringe as UN Ambassador Nikki Haley announces she is resigning at the end of the year, ending two years of clear, principled service on behalf of the U.S. And Jim unloads on Democrats for suggesting the Kavanaugh confirmation was illegitimate by pointing out that Democrats have declared almost every good election result for conservatives over the past 40 years to be illegitimate for one reason or another.

Tonight, Taylor Swift, who, up until this point in life had shrewdly stayed clear of politics knowing that it would alienate half her fan base, decided to forgo her Swiss-like neutrality and throw her support behind Senate Candidate Phil Bredesen (D) because he stated two days ago that if – and the if is the […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America recoil at the horror of four people killed in a Tennessee mass shooting, but the shock turns to anger at the news that authorities took away the shooter’s guns last year, left them with his dad under orders to keep the guns locked up, but the dad gave the weapons back to the shooter.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America give credit to the mainstream media for calling Democrats to account for their silence over the sexual assault and harassment allegations lodged against Hollywood mogul and prolific Democratic Party donor Harvey Weinstein. They also fire back at Twitter after the social media service censors a video from Tennessee GOP Senate hopeful Marsha Blackburn because her efforts to stop the sale of aborted baby body parts were considered inflammatory and likely to elicit negative reactions. And Jim and Greg sigh as the latest NFL protest chaos includes ESPN host Jemele Hill getting suspended for encouraging Dallas Cowboy fans to boycott team sponsors, Al Sharpton vowing to boycott the NFL unless Hill is reinstated, and President Trump gloating over the Hill suspension.

With President Trump Carrying Tennessee by 26 points, 60.7% to 34.7% (1,522,925 votes to Hillary’s 870,695 votes) in a thorough wipeout, you would think the Senate race would be uneventful for the GOP next year. But Republican Senator Bob Corker has decided he’s done with politics, and will not run for re-election. The Governor, Bill […]
