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.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political podcast number 175 (isn’t there like a name for that? like the sequeplus centennial or something?) it is the Dying Anyway Podcast with your handsome and charming hosts, radio guy Todd Feinburg and nanophysicist turned AI-guy Mike Stopa.

Does everyone remember the Paul Wellstone memorial? What should have been a somber event turned into a political rally complete with Republican bashing. How much do you want to bet McCain’s memorial turns into a Trump-bashing hate fest? More

Can anyone defend the “Skinny Repeal” on the merits? It may be that the “maverick Grandstander in Chief” just killed a dogs breakfast of a bill which did absolutely nothing to repeal any Obamacare regulations or government program expansions. The bill had certain provisions we can all agree on: repeal the individual mandate, repeal the […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are pleased to see conservative priorities in Pres. Trump’s budget, even though they concede the final appropriations will look nothing like this. They also shake their heads as John McCain accuses anyone opposing NATO membership for Montenegro of doing Vladimir Putin’s bidding. And they react to a tweet from the McDonald’s account that slams Pres. Trump.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America enthusiastically welcome a liberal threat to launch primary challenges to Democratic senators in 2018 for being too nice to Donald Trump. They also slam Republicans John McCain and Susan Collins for voting against very solid conservative nominees. And we react to the mainstream media temper tantrum after not getting to ask questions at some of Pres. Trump’s press conferences.
