Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
When you write 1500 words and completely miss the point. – The hacks over at Politico published a long piece about the implosion of the Kamala Harris campaign over the weekend. Harris, of course, was once the star of the Democrat field, the candidate many felt was the natural heir to the Party’s identity politics foundation.
The piece goes after Harris’s campaign manager, some guy named Juan Rodriguez, and her sister, Maya Harris, as the culprits in this disintegrating fairy tale, blaming their internal squabbling and inability to make decisions as the reason why Harris is currently polling around 3-4% in the national polls. But nowhere in all these words and sentences to the writers of the piece get to the real issue, which is that Kamala Harris is a horrible candidate.
She has no discipline, she has no core set of beliefs, she has no ability to communicate in a coherent manner outside of her scripted talking points and she has utterly failed to give voters any sort of compelling reason why they should vote for her over one of the other circus clowns in the field. She’s a terrible candidate, something no campaign manager or group of hangers-on can change.
At the end of the day, the California senator who was rumored to be Barack Obama’s chosen one for this race is no different than Kirsten Gillibrand, a vain politician running for the presidency because she thought she was somehow entitled to the office, and for no other real reason. The Politico piece should have been about 250 words long, which is about what I’ve just written.
Another set of focus groups, another new talking point. This is how the Democrats do “impeachment.” – Last Thursday, as chronicled here at the Campaign Update, San Fran Nan and Bug-eyes Schiff rolled out their “bribery” talking point after testing the word with polls and focus groups. It turned out that “quid pro quo” hit too close to “Quid Pro Joe,” and people just fall asleep whenever Pelosi or Schiff utter the whole “obstruction of congress” nonsense,” so the Democrats needed a new word to describe the fantasy they were trying to construct.
“Blackmail” being an actual English word that most Americans – even Democrats – actually understand the meaning of helped, plus it had all those negative connotations that the man on the street can relate back to episodes of Chicago Law and Law and Order, so it’s just awesome for this purpose.
But another problem came up after the first two days of mindless testimony from three gossips in the diplomatic corps: Everything they said was hearsay. None of the three witnesses actually witnessed anything remotely related to any supposed wrongdoing by the President. Faced with a group of GOP congress members who are actually organized around a set of core messages for once, the Democrats had no effective response to the GOP contention that this is all just gossip and hearsay, mainly because it is just all gossip and hearsay, with much more gossip and hearsay to come.
So, apparently San Fran Nan and Bug-eyes got a focus group or twelve together on Saturday and rolled out this question to them: “Hey, how would you respond if we taunted President Trump to come testify himself?” That apparently produced nodding heads around the rooms, and thus we had the spectacle of San Fran Nan and Chuck Schumer saying this on Sunday:
Pelosi: “If he has information that is exculpatory, that means ex, taking away, culpable, blame, then we look forward to seeing it,” she said in an interview that aired Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” Trump “could come right before the committee and talk, speak all the truth that he wants if he wants.”
Schumer: “If Donald Trump doesn’t agree with what he’s hearing, doesn’t like what he’s hearing, he shouldn’t tweet. He should come to the committee and testify under oath. And he should allow all those around him to come to the committee and testify under oath,” Schumer told reporters. He said the White House’s insistence on blocking witnesses from cooperating begs the question: “What is he hiding?”
In other words, in the grand tradition of Democrat politicians trying to corrupt the American system of justice, they now want President Trump to come prove his innocence before their impeachment circus.
Sorry, but that’s not how this works, Nan and Chuck. That’s now any of this works.
But it obviously does well with focus groups, and that’s all any Democrat really cares about. All of which clearly demonstrates one more time how un-serious these people are, and how low their regard is for the health and survival of this country.
It’s despicable. It’s demented. It’s disgraceful and disgusting. But hey, it’s Democrats – you expected something else?
That is all.
