Pelosi and Ocasio-Cortez Fight For The Car Keys


Originally posted on wibc.com

I made a mistake: Pelosi and Cortez are not battling for the soul of the Democratic party.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are both Progressives; hard-edged and hard core. Their socialist dream is shared between themselves, as it is with millions of activists. 

More government. More control. More so-called equality. Less people being able to say out loud that the world envisioned by them is awful.

I realized my mistake when I said it on FOX News. In a conversation with Leland Vittert, referencing a column in the New York Times from Maureen Dowd, I said that Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and Speaker Pelosi were locked in a battle for the soul of the party. I should have said that it was a battle for control of the party.

Tony Katz on FOX and Friends: Mayor Pete Buttigieg and the Pizza Peace Offering

Are These The 25 Best Beers In America?

USA Today made a list of what they say are the best beers in America. The problem with any list like this is that deciding the 25 best beers is way too pretentious. Just, as Tony Katz feels about it, not as pretentious as an IPA.


This is Eat! Drink! Smoke! Tony, along with Fingers Malloy, reviews Beer Barrel Bourbon from New Holland Spirits and the Arturo Fuente Double Chateau cigar. Eat! Drink! Smoke! is sponsored by Fanimation.com

Look, if you’re an IPA fan, there’s nothing wrong with that. Tony isn’t. Fingers isn’t. But that doesn’t take away from their huge popularity, and multiple appearances on the list.

And if you’re curious, Tony and Fingers prefer the stouts and the brown ales.
