Todays Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends)
The Democrat presidential nomination battle is already a three-ring circus, and the far left elements of the Democrat base are going to make sure it stays that way.
Yesterday, ex-Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, who is struggling to gain a foothold in the race, found himself in trouble with the social justice warrior crowd when his effort to imply that a woman may well win the nominating contest fell flat with the humorless left. The first mistake Hickenlooper made was accepting CNNs invitation to get a little (very little, given CNNs dwindling audience) free media by doing a televised town hall hosted by leftist activist Dana Bash on Wednesday night. The second mistake he made was to try to inject a little wit into any answer to any question, because he is trying to attract votes from the most witless element of our society.
When Bash asked him the standard question about whether or not he would name a woman as his running mate, Hickenlooper first said Of course. Had he just stopped right there and waited for the next question, hed have been just fine. Unfortunately for Hickenlooper, he felt the need to expand. It all went downhill from there.
But Ill ask you another question, Hickenlooper said, How come were not asking, more often, the women, Would you be willing to put a man on the ticket?
Now, the ex-Governors intent there was to imply that, in this nominating race, it is entirely possible that a woman might win the nomination his answer was a little back-handed jab at Bash for assuming a man is going to come out on top. With Sen. Kamala Harris currently running a strong third in the polls behind two pasty white guys who are older than the dirt Irish Bob ORourke eats for breakfast, and the Pantsuit Princess and Michelle Obama still lurking out there in the wings, it is certainly entirely possible the Democrat Party will once again have a female nominee in 2020.
But the leftist outrage mob has no sense of humor or understanding of this thing called wit, and is determined to be outraged. That determination meant that Hickenloopers remark was intended as a shot against women, not a compliment to them, as the outrage mob went berserk all over CNN, MSNBC and social media all day on Thursday.
The moral of this story? Understand your audience, Governor. Never try to inject wit into an answer when youre seeking the votes of witless people. Just say Of course, accept the inevitable applause, and move on.
Speaking of moving on, the radical nutjobs at Moveon.org this week put out a demand to all of the Democrats running for the presidency to boycott this years meeting of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) as an expression of their support for the wave of rank anti-Semitism that currently infests the American left. To no ones surprise, at least eight of the candidates, eager to appeal to the growing Ilhan Omar faction of the demented Democrat voter base, have agreed to participate in the boycott.
Those agreeing to Moveons demand thus far include Kamala Harris, Irish Bob ORourke, The Commie, Fauxcahontas, Kirsten Gillibrand, Julian Castro, Pete Buttigieg, and Jay Inslee. No word yet from Hickenlooper, Biden, Amy Klobuchar, Andrew Yang or Cory Booker, but you can be sure they will all be under intense pressure today to follow their fellow spineless candidates over this anti-Semite cliff.
Then theres Creepy Uncle Joe. The elderly, pasty-white guy from Delaware is anxious not to become the prime target of the mushrooming we hate old white guys faction of the partys voter base. In the hopes of putting a beard on his blinding old white guy-ness, he is now floating a trial balloon in which he would promise to name failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who happens to be female and black, as his running mate.
So once again, this current Democrat obsession with political looooooooosers raises its curious head. Nothing against Ms. Abrams, but she lost her race, lost it by more than 50,000 votes in fact, despite obviously benefiting from a pretty robust voter fraud operation and all the free media our fake news media could reasonably provide.
There are literally hundreds of successful, winning minority female politicians out there who Biden could have targeted for this trial balloon. For example, theres Mad Maxine Waters, who for more than a year in 2017-18 was literally the demented face of the Democrat Party before the partys leaders convinced her to tone things down. Shes won every election race shes ever run why not her?
Then theres Texas congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, who must be sitting around grumbling, why not me? Say what you will about Cong. Lee and there are many, many things to be said about her there is no denying that she has also been extremely successful in getting elected and repeatedly re-elected.
Speaking of winning Democrats who are making a real mark, theres Cong. Ilhan Omar, who has now become the leading voice of anti-Semitism in America. Why not her?
Or hey, how about a Hispanic 2018 gubernatorial candidate who actually won her race, like New Mexicos Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham? Lord knows there are plenty of New Mexico citizens who would love to see her leave to run for Veep so they could get a do-over on that race.
But I digress. The question here is why so much focus on Ms. Abrams, whose only actual experience in government is as a state representative who made no real mark in that role? Why was she chosen, out of all the possible candidates out there, to deliver the Democrat Partys response to the State of the Union address? Why is this political loser considered to be such a rising influence within the Party?
Makes no sense to me. But then, Im not a Democrat.
That is all.

They are all losers
Oh come on! Everyone loves a whiny fat b!tch ragging at you every time you turn on the TV. Abrams is the prefect choice for a democrat
The Dems don’t have the market cornered on losers, the repubs had:
Democrats are the people who insisted that kids not keep score. Winning or losing is not important. It’s playing the game that’s important. I have come to realize that philosophy is the most important element of thought. The winning or losing isn’t important is a terribly damaging philosophy.
A perfect example of what the Dems canidates are going to have to playcate in order to get anywhere.
To pander to American Jews, why isn’t Slow Joe partnering with Joe Lieberman? Joe-Joe, the double loser team.
Biden needs to be willing to walk away. The proggies already want him to be a one-term POTUS, and to take on a running mate who cannot win a national election on his/her own in order to give themselves outsized representation.
That sets up the potential for catastrophe if he dies in office. We could end up with, well, fascism. The proggies may not be about nation-states, but you cannot tell me that the same tactics and jack-booted intolerance applied to an international order that makes colonies of us all is not fascism.
They still have an outgroup to attribute all the evils of the world to, and for sure there has been no lack of demagoguery coming from proggie quarters.
Biden should be willing to walk away. Heck, Biden should be ready to run, not walk.
My husband calls him Joe Bite Me
I call him CrAzY uncle Joe
When I’m sparring with the lefties online I call him Joe Bidet. It goes over their heads every time. Until...
The trouble, when all you have is the candidate-pool the demwits now have to offer, is that the bottom of the barrel looks exactly like the top.
Well, when the average IQ of the voters in your district is 75 having an IQ of 90 makes one look pretty good.
. . . raising the obvious question as to why no (other) man need apply for the VP nomination - and the even more pointed question as to why a man (Hickenlooper himself) should be applying for the POTUS nomination.
