The Corner

Should I Fear He Might Be Trying to Posion Me?

An e-mail:  

As a liberal and one who finds the Corner hilarious because it tends to be a discussion between people who are wrong about everything (Santorum for SCOTUS!  Romney for Prez!), I would be remiss if I didn’t recommend Via Emilia on Park Ave S.  It’s Pumpkin Tortellini rather than Ravioli, and I’d like to keep the place to myself, but the opportunity to force you to buy lunch for someone else couldn’t be missed out on.  Keep up the good (bad???) work! Cheers!

I’d like to note for the record that I never pushed Santorum for SCOTUS. Just Senate, of course, SECDEF, and U.N. Ambassador (if the unjustifiable happens to Bolton).

Good News for Pompeo

Looks like he's in, as he should be. https://twitter.com/TomCottonAR/status/987050849317867521 But this fight has been a hint of what life will be like for Trump if the Democrats somehow take the Senate -- they'd refuse to confirm anyone for anything. Read More
