Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Tired of all this Winning yet? – Hey, I’m old enough to remember last week, when every fake journalist in Texas and America was telling us that Texas senate candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, an Irish guy who represents a largely-Hispanic congressional district (thus the ‘nickname’), was the Democrat Party’s “rising star” who was going to whip Ted Cruz in the general election this coming November. Yeah, that was just another bit of fake news fed to all the fake reporters by the Democrats, who are desperate to pretend they have momentum and are about to have a “blue wave” election this Fall.
Even the increasingly disgusting leftwingers who infest the increasingly fake-newsy The Hill these days are facing up to reality now, with a new narrative on Irish Beto titled “O’Rourke faces uphill battle against Cruz after lackluster primary win”. This comes after Irish Beto only managed to pull 62% of the vote against a couple of other Democrats with zero name recognition in the primary last week, receiving fewer than half the number of votes Cruz received in the GOP primary. Clearly, the articulate and good looking Irish Beto is going to have to do more than be articulate and good-looking to appeal to Texas voters outside of Austin.
But don’t blame Irish Beto – this pattern of big “we’re gonna turn Texas blue!” buildup followed by a huge crash and burn at the ballot box is becoming an every-four-year tradition for the Democrats and their fake news media toadies in Texas. Who could ever forget the gigantic buildup Texas and national media outlets gave to Wendy Davis, who thought she could ride a pro-abortion-until-birth-and-maybe-even-after-birth filibuster in the Texas Senate all the way to the governor’s office in 2014?
In that campaign, Barack Obama sent his Organizing for America clowns down to Austin to assist with the Davis effort, the web-based Texas Tribune became basically the Davis for Governor pep squad, and the New York Times treated its Upper East Side subscriber base to breathless weekly updates on its front page about the coming Reign of Wendy. On election day, reality came home to roost, as Davis pulled in 38% of the vote against Republican Greg Abbott.
With the Texas Democrat Party probably stuck with a lackluster Dallas County sheriff as its candidate for the governor’s office (Sheriff Guadalupe Valdez, who will face some guy named Andrew White in a runoff for the nomination) Irish Beto has now become the Great Democrat/media Hope for 2018. The truth is that his chances to defeat Senator Cruz were never any better than virtually non-existent, and all the fawning attention the NYTimes and Texas Tribune can muster on his behalf won’t change that. Thus, Mr. O’Rourke is destined to become just the latest Great Democrat Disappointment in November, and join Ms. Davis as just another former Democrat “rising star” who has no future in politics.
Because this is Texas, not New York or California, and that is how this stuff works here.
God Bless Texas.
Meanwhile, all those NYTimes-reading Upper East Siders were tut-tutting and clicking their tongues in snobbish horror Saturday night as President Donald Trump delivered one of his classic ad lib stem-winders to a huge crowd in Pittsburgh. Trump, fresh off a week of #Winning as only Trump can do, was pumped up and in rare form, as he went after his tormentors in the fake news media and the Democrat Party. Here are some of the highlights:
Speaking of NBC fake journalist Chuck Todd: The President first referred to Todd as “Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd,” then followed with “He’s a sleepy son of a bitch, I’ll tell you.” Wine glasses crashed to floors at dinner parties all around Central Park at that one. The NYTimes tried to reach Todd for comment, but he was napping.
On CNN: “…fake as hell CNN. So fake. The worst.” Correct.
On the fact that his candidacy and presidency have been a boon for ratings at the cable TV networks, except for CNN: “Could you imagine covering Bernie? Or Pocahontas? How about that? Can you imagine having to cover Elizabeth Warren for four years?” No. We can’t.
On Mad Maxine Waters: [She’s a] “low-IQ individual.” He repeated this 100% true statement several times, just to irritate everyone in coastal California even more.
On Oprah Winfrey possibly running against him in 2020: “I’d love Oprah to win, I’d beat Oprah. I know her weakness,” he said. “Wouldn’t we love to run against Oprah? I’d love it. That would be a painful experience for her.” Again, all true, so delightfully true.
It was epic, all over the place, completely un-presidential, stream-of-consciousness Trump at his best – or worst, if you live in the regional Democrat Party centers of New York, Hollywood or Chicago.
He should do this more often.
Just another day in the Democrats have no clue what to do about all of this America.
That is all.
