Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Oh, my, what an embarrassment Saturday was for our Democrat friends. – Ok, they’re not really our “friends” – they’re actually enemies of the people who want to put anyone who disagrees with them on any issue from killing babies to throwing away the nation’s treasure on eliminating cow farts and building rail lines that can never be built in prison. Thus, watching them humiliate themselves in public has become a major new national pastime, a source of great joy to millions of normal Americans.
Saturday was just filled with banner episodes of this ongoing inadvertent comedy series, like this one from inexplicable presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand:

Seriously, any advisor who told her that was a good look that needed to be spread on social media should be summarily fired for cause. It doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things, since Gillibrand continues to poll at or near 0 in every poll and has no shot at winning anything, but dang, girl, go buy some dignity. I hear WalMart has it on sale this weekend.
But poor Kirsten certainly had plenty of company on Saturday. Here’s the Pantsuit Princess once again blaming Russia for her humiliating 2016 loss in the presidential race. If you can stand it, watch as she engages in classic Clintonian projection by saying that “obstruction of justice did occur.”:

Why yes, “obstruction of justice did indeed occur:
- 33,000 deleted emails that were under federal subpoena
- subpoenaed hard drives bleach-bitted
- subpoenaed cell phones smashed with hammers
- outright perjury committed in FBI interviews
- subpoenaed documents falsified and withhel…
Wait, she was talking about someone else? My goodness. Of course she was.
Or how about that always-reliable-for-a-good-laugh San Fran Nan? In the wake of President Trump’s smashing victory in obtaining major concessions from Mexico in his ongoing one-man battle to stem the flow of illegal immigrants, terrorists and drugs across our Southern border, the doddering, stammering Speaker of the House had this to say:
“President Trump undermined America’s preeminent leadership role in the world by recklessly threatening to impose tariffs on our close friend and neighbor to the south. Threats and temper tantrums are no way to negotiate foreign policy.”
Um, well, sorry Nervous Nancy, the evidence currently at hand says that threats and temper tantrums work just fine with our “neighbor to the south.” Do try to keep up, would you?
Then there was Pete Buttigieg saying this to an audience in Iowa:
“At a time like today when you can still be legally fired in so many parts of this country because of who you are or who you love, we have work to do.”
For the record, there is no place in America where anyone – gay, straight, black, brown, yellow, white, Jewish, Catholic, Protestant, Native American or anyone else – can LEGALLY be fired because of who you are or who you love. Hard stop, as AOC loves to say.
That is a damnable lie, and if we had anything resembling an honest news media in our country, he would be forced to provide specific examples of where he believes numerous federal laws banning any such practice do not apply in the United States of America.
But we don’t have an honest news media in our country today, so nonsense like this just gets tossed out into the public consciousness with no effort to correct the record.
Buttigieg uses that line as a prop for his next line, which is “America was never that great.” Note to Mayor Pete: If you have to make stuff up in order to claim America was never great, America must be pretty damn great.
That is all.
