I always enjoy a face-to-face chat with political leaders and other newsmakers. There is a comfort level in sitting across the table from an interview subject. Watching their body language, eye contact, and hand gestures adds extra dimensions that a telephone chat cannot provide. LISTEN TO TERRY MEINERS AND MITCH McCONNELL Mitch McConnell is the longest serving U.S. Senate leader and longest serving U.S. senator in Kentucky history. We've done a ton of phone interviews during his 38 years in office. Studio visits produce better content. Arriving 15 minutes early at WHAS' iHeart studios, Senator McConnell and I were able to talk about a few things off air before we opened the mics. He laughed when I asked if "Cocaine Mitch" was planning

BREAKING: Protests erupt in the Senate as VP Pence presides over the vote on Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation. https://t.co/f32ecMfRed pic.twitter.com/QdbjWrN6JE— MSNBC (@MSNBC) October 6, 2018 The U.S. Senate has confirmed Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court. Liberal pundits on MSNBC immediately went to the tired old playbook about "white men are stomping on women and minorities" as they cast blame everywhere but in the mirror. MSNBC favored guest Bishop William Barber claimed "it was all a sham," then incorrectly blamed Republicans for the 50 vote threshold (no longer 60) that was implemented by Harry Reid and the Democrats in 2013. From the liberal Washington Post: The Democrats' decision to use the "nuclear option" five years ago has roiled the

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell confirms that he is prepared to use the so-called nuclear option, changing traditional rules of the Senate to allow for a simple majority vote to confirm U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch. In a WHAS radio interview with me, McConnell noted that the longstanding tradition of requiring a supermajority of 60 aye votes was overrun in 2013 by then-majority leader Sen. Harry Reid. Democrats point out that Reid's use of the nuclear option was to advance lower court appointments, not Supreme Court nominees. Here is the entire WHAS interview, which also covers whether superpowers should intervene following Syrian chemical attacks, if GOP in-fighting will wither 2018 election hopes, health care upgrades, tax reform, and
