Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
The rules, they are a-changin’. – This was the week we learned that the long-detested and off-limits “C”-word is now just fine to use in public. If you don’t think that’s going to be the net result of leftist celebrities like Sally Field and the execrable Michael Moore praising really bad comic Samantha Bee for her use of the term to describe First Daughter Ivanka Trump, you’re living in a dream world.
After all, defining deviancy down is what left-wingers do best, and they’ve been doing it for more than half a century now.
Remember when Bill Clinton told us that having oral sex with Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office was ok because, hey, oral sex isn’t really sex? Wasn’t that wonderful? Remember what happened shortly afterwards?
Within a few months, we began to be flooded with stories about kids having oral sex in high schools, junior highs and even elementary schools all over the country because hey, that isn’t really sex. What, is there a rule against that or something?
So get ready for the coming stream of stories about kids in 3rd grade calling each other the “C” word and school officials having to explain to outraged parents that their offended daughters should just get over it because Sally Field said it was really just fine. Because that’s what’s coming.
Hey, remember when Obama made a point of posing in front of that mural of Che Guevara? Yeah, good times…good times… – Bernie Sanders, who has spent his life idolizing Josef Stalin and Fidel Castro, told a fake reporter on Friday that President Trump “kind of likes all the authoritarian leaders.” No kidding, he really said that. I swear I don’t make this stuff up.
Speaking of clueless Democrats, how about that San Fran Nan Pelosi? Isn’t she a pistol? A reader asked me yesterday when, oh, when are the rank and file Democrats in congress going to get rid of this doddering nitwit as their leader in the House? Don’t they realize she’s going to kill them in the midterms?
These are great questions – we’ll get to the answers in a minute. But first, let’s review Pelosi’s endorsements and condemnations in just the last two weeks:
She has endorsed:
- The ultra-violent MS-13 gang;
- Kim Jong Un;
- Hamas, which has been classified by the U.S. State Department as a terrorist organization since 1998;
- Raising taxes;
She has condemned:
- A 3.7% record low rate of unemployment;
- Record low Black and Hispanic unemployment;
- Tax cuts;
- Rapidly expanding economic growth;
- The effort to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula;
- Accelerating wage growth;
This is not the makings of a winning campaign platform for the Democrats’ down-trodden congressional candidates.
Now, the answers to the readers’ questions: Yes, they realize she’s killing them, and no, she’s not going anywhere anytime soon. She is clinging to her power like a rabid squirrel clinging to its last acorn.
Isn’t that great news for Republicans? Why yes, yes it is.
After all, if the fake news media had any standards, it wouldn’t be fake! – MSNBC announced on Saturday that it is will continue its pursuit of CNN for the title of Fakest Outlet In The Fake News Universe by hiring former Obama advisor Ben Rhodes to be its newest fake news analyst. You might remember Mr. Rhodes as being most famous for going around bragging about having created an “echo chamber” within the national news media on the horrible Iran deal by strategically lying to all the “20-something” naive fake reporters.
Hey, if you’re gonna go fake, you might as well go all-in.
In other news, the Fox News channel has been the #1-rated cable news network for 197 consecutive months. Proving yet again that liberals have zero sense of self-awareness or ability to engage in real introspective thought.
Just another day in the rules, they are a-changin’ America.
That is all.
