Why Joe Biden had to be the Democrat Party’s “Presumptive” Nominee

The Evening Campaign Update

You all understand by now that the fix was in for Joe Biden, right? Everyone gets why Creepy Uncle Quid Pro China Joe literally had to be the Democrat Party’s “presumptive” nominee for the presidency this year?

This “presumptive” nomination was never in doubt. It took me a long time to figure that out, but the simplicity of it all finally popped into my head earlier today, as I was editing my third “Obama Knew” piece of the last four days.

Yes, Obama knew everything. He knew from cradle to grave. He knew about all the illegal spying on the Trump campaign beginning in late 2015 and continuing right into the Trump Transition and even into the Trump presidency. He knew about the Clinton Campaign and DNC splitting the costs for the fake Steele Dossier, and knew it was all based on lies from agents of foreign nations like Russia.

Obama knew about all the FISA fraud and the effort to entrap and frame Mike Flynn. He knew about the literal wiretapping of Trump Tower and knew about James Comey’s effort to entrap and frame new President Donald Trump. He knew about all the perjury and fraud and subterfuge and open sedition and arguably outright treason.

And guess who else knew about all of that in real time as it was happening? Creepy Uncle Quid Pro China Joe Biden.

That, folks, is why no one else could possibly become the presumptive Democrat nominee. Bernie Sanders never really had a chance. Nor did Preacher Pete, or Fauxcahontas or any of the other 7,000 candidates for the nomination.

See, Biden knows all the deep, dark secrets of the Obama years. He knows where all the bodies are buried. And more to the point, he participated in burying them. And even more to the point, he was the only declared candidate for the nomination this time who had that status.

Thus, Biden was the only person in the race who Obama and the evil minions who run the DNC could possibly allow to secure the nomination. After all, he had real skin in the game. If everything suddenly spills out into the public domain – as it has been doing in drips and drabs over the past few weeks – Quid Pro Joe is as much at risk as anyone else, including Obama.

Think about it: one of the things Biden knows – as Obama does – is that the DNC was not really “hacked” by the Russians in 2016, as the organization has falsely claimed for four long years.  Could the current DNC minions really risk having an unknown quantity like Preacher Pete walking into the Oval Office on January 20 of next year and trust him to be willing to become an after-the-fact accomplice?

What about Kamala Harris? Could she be trusted with the keys to the kingdom?

Fauxcahontas can’t even be trusted to tell the truth about her grandmother’s racial background. You think Obama can trust her to keep him out of all of this? Please.

No, this was always destined to be Biden’s “presumptive” nomination. He is the only candidate who is personally at risk, and thus the only one who could be fully trusted to immediately shut down any further investigations into anything related to Spygate/Obamagate on his first day in office.

Of course, the problem with this plan becomes more manifest with each passing day: Quid Pro China Joe is increasingly and obviously impaired. He is not capable of conducting a video conference call, much less the office of the presidency.

But note that I keep using the term “presumptive” nominee. That’s because Biden doesn’t have to be the actual nominee. All he has to do is remain semi-lucid for another couple of months, until all the party’s primary contests have come and gone, in order to ensure that Sanders has no ability to accumulate enough delegates to win the nomination on a first ballot vote at the convention.

Because, as Yoda said in one of those Star Wars flicks a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, “There is another.”

Yes, there is another. Another prominent Democrat who also has plenty of skin and personal risk in this game. Another who has been waiting in the wings all along, hoping for a chance to jump in and steal this nomination.

That, of course, would be the Pantsuit Princess herself, Hillary Rotten Clinton. The same Fainting Felon who was supposed to win the election in 2016 and sweep everything under the rug the day she assumed office in 2017. Oops. But now she might get a second chance to finish the job.

It’s all becoming clear now. It just took awhile to figure it all out.

That is all.

Staffers Confirm Bloomberg’s Decision to Debate was his Campaign’s Death Knell

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

The leftist publication The Nation often publishes very interesting analysis pieces. One such piece ran on Friday. Titled “‘This Was a Grift’: Bloomberg Staffers Explain Campaign’s Demise,” the piece written by Ken Klippenstein makes for some very fascinating reading.

Klippenstein had access to several Bloomberg staffers who confirm the thesis that I laid out in the Campaign Update of February 22: That Bloomberg’s decision to enter the Las Vegas debate despite the fact he was not participating in the Nevada Caucuses was a strategic blunder that ultimately proved fatal.

Klippenstein not only traces the implosion of Mini-Mike’s failed effort to that debate, but to the moment when Elizabeth Warren slammed his very poor and public record of dealing with female employees:

…according to nearly a dozen members of his campaign staff, the former New York City mayor’s presidential dreams really died when Elizabeth Warren eviscerated his record on live television during the February 19 debate in Las Vegas.

Not a single Bloomberg staffer that I spoke to was surprised by the campaign’s implosion. Speaking on the condition of anonymity for fear of professional reprisal and because of the campaign’s nondisclosure agreements—which The Nation obtained a leaked copy of in February—campaign employees cited that bruising debate as well as a general lack of enthusiasm for Bloomberg among the staff as main factors ending his presidential run.

“Ever since the first debate all of us faced a ton of hostility [when knocking on] doors…and could hardly get any volunteers,” one field organizer told me. “I once had a woman chase me back to my car demanding that I say you can’t buy the presidency.”

[End]

Now, here’s part of what I wrote in that Feb. 22 piece:

Using the RCP aggregate of betting odds as a primary gauge, the disastrous debate showing by Mr. Excitement, Mike Bloomberg, last Wednesday is going to have a major negative impact on his polling numbers and, by extension, on his ability to accumulate votes and maybe even win a state or two in the March 3 Super Tuesday primaries.

Just nine days ago, The Commie held a shaky 5-point lead over Mini-Mike in this important gauge of public sentiment, with Sanders pulling in 39% of the money being bet and Mr. Excitement 34%. That Commie lead began to expand, though, as video after video began to surface of Mini-Mike making horrific public statements offending all manner of traditional Democrat interest groups. By the time debate day came around, the Sanders lead had grown to 17 points.

In the three days since Bloomberg’s Vegas Waterloo, the bottom has dropped out. The Commie’s support has jumped up over 50% for the first time, while Mr. Excitement has crashed down to 22%. It is very likely that that near-30% gap between the two will only expand after Sanders scores what is going to be a big winning margin in the Nevada caucuses.

Before that debate took place, Mini-Mike had actually moved into slight polling leads in both Oklahoma and Arkansas, and was becoming competitive in a couple of the other Super Tuesday states, based solely on the strength of $300 million spent on TV and social media ads.  In polling released over the next 7-10 days, we will likely see those leads go poof!, as the impacts of his debate catastrophe begin to show up in the polling data.

I told you on Wednesday morning that there was no possible benefit for Bloomberg to appear in that debate: He wasn’t even on the ballot in Nevada – why take the risk of having exactly the horrific debate performance he in fact had? And there was no way this near-terminally boring old man who hadn’t participated in a debate setting in a dozen years was going to have a good night against a pack of desperate animals who have been doing nothing but debating and running their mouths for almost a damn year now.

[End]

Back to Klippenstein’s piece in The Nation:

Several members of the campaign described Bloomberg’s debate as the beginning of the end. As another field organizer put it, “The people who liked Mike initially didn’t care about the sexual [harassment] allegations or stop and frisk, but they got turned off because they thought he made himself look weak and that he had let Warren walk all over him.”

A third staffer also said that the debate marked a turning point, after which phone calls with voters became more difficult. “The day after [the debate] when we made calls people were like, ‘Oh yeah, I was thinking about him [Bloomberg], but I’m not really sure anymore.’”

Bloomberg’s performance, specifically his handling of Warren’s questions, even alienated the campaign’s volunteers. Of the volunteers that quit, one campaign employee told me, “Just about every one of them said it was because of the debate performance or the NDA scandals.”

[End]

Klippenstein’s piece also goes into detail about how Bloomberg staffers, seeing the handwriting of Bloomberg’s impending doom clearly written on the wall, actually used Mini-Mike’s tons of money to actively campaign for Sanders and other Democrat candidates leading up to Super Tuesday. It’s a fascinating piece that everyone should go read. Warning: you’ll have to spend $1 for a 24-hour access to The Nation’s website to do it, but I found it well worth the price.

The Corrupt American Media Shames Itself Yet Again

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

You can’t trust MSNBC or the New York Times to do the maths. – Seriously, you could never make this stuff up, folks.

Understand that both of these corrupt “journalists” spent a good deal of time preparing for this moment. They prepared actual talking points for it. Both certainly were assisted by half a dozen or more assistants, fact-checkers, and talking points monkeys.

Understand that this didn’t just happen on the spur of the moment, and you understand exactly how utterly stupid the nation’s population of corrupt journalists truly is as a group.

Speaking of utterly stupid corrupt fake journalists, check out this tweet from the execrable hack, Ana Navarro, a paid CNN contributor:

Of course, Jeff Sessions is from Alabama, not Arkansas. But hey, at least she knew it was one of those “A” states out there in Flyover Country, so her peers in the corrupt news media would say she did great. They like to grade themselves on a very steep curve.

The “it’s all sexism and misogyny” excuse rears its ugly head again. – Here’s a panel of dimwitted talking heads on MSNBC yesterday, whining about how the failure of the lifelong fraud Lieawatha to gain traction in the Democrat Party nominating race means America is all, like, sexist and like, misogynistic and stuff, or something:

Note that at least three of those five nitwits pretend to be working journalists, including the host, who is really just a turncoat former Bushie. Note also that none of them has the presence of mind to realize that all this sexism and misogyny they’re talking about, if it actually does exist, comes straight from the DEMOCRAT PARTY VOTER BASE. This would be the very same Democrat voter base that these very same nitwits regularly portray as being so open-minded, diverse and vastly superior to the voter base of the GOP.

This is not rocket science, is it? Seriously, is this hard? Am I missing something here? If I am, I truly do want to know what it is.

And now for some comic relief…: Hey, look, CBS This Morning is so desperate for rating that it has apparently signed Austin Powers to a new contributor agreement.

GOLO or Gabby Adventure Time Now: School, Zorro, 돌, and REDFACE

 

Ok, sorry. Just having a little fun there.

Back to the whole “sexism” and Fauxcahontas thing… – The cretins who run The Hill published this piece yesterday:

Here’s the thing, ladies and corrupt journalists pushing this false narrative:

TULSI. GABBARD. IS. STILL. A. CANDIDATE.

She really is a woman – seriously, she serves in the Army Reserves, it’s been verified. Check it out:

Tulsi Gabbard ‘regrets’ her past anti-gay activism as she prepares for a presidential race ...

See? She’s even waving at you, trying to get your attention.

Why is she waving in a desperate attempt to get your attention, you ask? It could be because she, a verified, actual lady with all the requisite lady parts, has had a real hard timing getting to 2% support in the polls of DEMOCRAT VOTERS in this campaign. Seems that all you liberals out there who wail and scream and whine incessantly about the nation’s aching need to have a woman, any woman, elected to the presidency for the simple fact that she is a woman, have utterly and completely failed to support this particular woman.

Today, she is the last woman standing in presidential politics for 2020, and I guaran-damn-tee you we will not see anyone in our corrupt news media wailing and screaming and incessantly whining about the need for all you liberals out there to now support Tulsi Gabbard over the two old geezers she’s left running against.

So, spare us all the drama. Please.

That is all.

Warren Withdraws, Taking Any Notion of Democrat “Diversity” With Her

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

For Democrats, diversity is their strength. Oh, wait… – Man, the pickings for mocking hypocritical, demented Democrat frauds sure are getting slim now. Tom Steyer – gone! Preacher Pete – gone! Klobuchar – gone! Mini-Mike – gone!

And now, as of this morning, no more Fauxcahontas! No more Lieawatha! No more Princess Little Big Mouth Always Running! Gone, all gone! And in just the last 6 days!

Democrats four years ago: “Trump is 69! He’s just another old white guy who’s too old to be president!!!!!!”

Democrats as of today: “I’m voting for one of the 78 year-old pasty-faced white guys!!!!!!!”

*sigh*…

Yes, I know: Tulsi Gabbard – who unlike Lieawatha, really is an actual minority candidate – is still in the race. But be honest: Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, thinks that Tulsi Gabbard is a serious contender for the 2020 Democrat nomination. Not even Tulsi believes that.

The once-25-man-and-woman-and-presumably-myriad-other-fictional-gender field of Democrat candidates has now, at long last, boiled down to a one-on-one contest between Quid Pro Joe and The Commie. Which, come to think of it, was exactly what the polls have been showing would be the likely outcome all along.

Which only serves to prove that, as always, Democrats were just giving lip service to any notion of having real “diversity” in their desperation to throw up someone, anyone, to be their nominee to challenge President Donald Trump in the fall. If Democrats voters truly cared about “diversity,” after all, it wasn’t like they didn’t have plenty of potential choices, any one of whom would have had at least as good a chance of prevailing in the general election as either of the two last geezers standing.

But the truth of the matter is that, to most Democrats, all this “diversity” talk is really nothing more than a virtue-signaling opportunity. If they were really anxious, for example, to nominate the first Black woman, what was wrong with Kamala Harris? I mean, other than being a horrible campaigner and clueless cretin? If it’s all about “diversity,” shouldn’t truly caring voters ignore those realities as they’ve ignored them about Biden?

If Democrat voters really, truly gave a damn about nominating a gay man, how come Preacher Pete could never attract above 8% national support in the polls? If Democrat voters cared about being the first to put forward an Hispanic nominee, what was wrong with Julian Castro? Or hell, they could’ve gone for the fake Hispanic, Beto O’Rourke. But neither Texan could even make it to the end of 2019 before folding up their tents and going home.

The truth is that “diversity” is only a real priority for Democrat voters when it’s convenient. Barack Obama became convenient when it became clear that a) he was the only viable option other than the Pantsuit Princess in 2008, and b) that he could actually beat the execrable John McCain in the general election. Democrat voters were all about “diversity” in that case.

The Fainting Felon became convenient in 2016 when it became clear that she was the only thing standing between their party and a takeover by The Commie and his violence-promoting hoards. So, they were all about “diversity” back then.

But now? Now, Democrat voters don’t really much care about their precious “diversity,” because it isn’t at all useful to their goal of beating President Trump. So, to hell with “diversity,” let’s nominate one of these old, pasty-white geezers and see if he can beat the bad Orange Man. No virtue-signaling there – just a crass and ruthless pursuit of political power, which is really all Democrats care about in any event.

“Diversity” is great when it’s convenient to that pursuit of power. This year, it isn’t.

And so, Fauxcahontas will now slink back to her teepee to lick her wounds and patiently wait to see which geezer offers the most wampum for her endorsement.

We will all anxiously await her smoke signals.

That is all.

Mini-Mike Suspends – The Ball is Now in Fauxcahontas’s Teepee

Today’s Campaign Update, Part III (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

We won’t have Mini-Mike to kick around anymore, which is a crying damn shame when you think about it. – Just like that, Mike Bloomberg suspends his incredibly ineffective, humongously expensive presidential campaign; thus, the Democrat Party establishment has successfully now cleared the field of anyone who can be referred to as remotely “moderate” and left the clearly-addled Quid Pro Joe standing alone against The Commie and Lieawatha.

From the Axios article on Mr. Excitement’s withdrawal:

Michael Bloomberg, who spent hundreds of millions of dollars to self-fund his 2020 presidential run, announced Wednesday that he is suspending his campaign after a poor performance on Super Tuesday and will endorse Joe Biden.

The state of play: Bloomberg opted to skip campaigning in early states, staking his candidacy on a string of Super Tuesday victories to launch him to frontrunner status, but that plan was ultimately felled by the resurgence of Joe Biden’s campaign.

“I’ve known Joe for a very long time. I know his decency, his honesty, and his commitment to the issues that are so important to our country – including gun safety, health care, climate change, and good jobs.”

The big picture: Bloomberg’s self-funding drew backlash from an increasingly progressive party that is skeptical of the role of big money in politics. Bloomberg was one of two billionaires in the race, joined by Tom Steyer, who dropped out over the weekend.

The President himself responded to Mini-Mike’s announcement with a pair of hilarious tweets:

And…

Now that the Party’s panic has achieved its desired goal, the focus will fall on Princess Little Big Mouth Always Running to see if she will have the grace to clear the radical path for The Commie. Her continued presence in the field already cost The Commie at least two primary wins on Tuesday – in Massachusetts and Maine – and would be likely to continue to cost Sanders in the delegate count in future primary contests.

So, the question becomes about who Elizabeth Warren really is: Is she really the progressive radical she pretends to be, or just another tool of the Party’s establishment?

We will find out very soon.

The Democrat Clown Show Moves Into Outright Panic Mode

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

The Democrat Party’s “establishment”, i.e., the part of the party’s leadership that still tries to hide its’ true socialist nature, is pulling out all the stops for Quid Pro Joe. – Having now realized that Mini-Mike Bloomberg is too inept and flawed as a candidate to ever be able to unite the party’s demented voter base, the Democrat poobahs pulled out all the stops on Monday to try to lift their Unfrozen Caveman Senator to wins in some key Super Tuesday states today.

It probably won’t work, given that “pulling out all the stops” just means that Crazy Uncle Joe received the endorsements of several people who already failed miserably in their own attempts to do what he’s trying to do. First came Preacher Pete, who suddenly ended his campaign Sunday afternoon after reportedly speaking to both Jimmy Carter and Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self.

No doubt the Preacher was promised a nice, cushy cabinet spot for his troubles. Try to imagine this guy as your next Secretary of Defense, and you probably get the idea.

Next came Amy Klobuchar, who apparently got the same Obama call about 18 hours before she was poised to win the primary in her home state of Minnesota. There’s your next secretary of Homeland Security or Housing and Urban Development, folks, should Joe manage to Quid Pro his way into the Oval Office.

Serial looooooser Irish Bob O’Rourke even got into act, flying out to somewhere – I’m not sure where – to deliver an endorsement speech at a Biden event in another half-empty high school gym. After O’Rourke had finished, the Unfrozen Caveman Senator got up and delivered another incoherent speech that included this little gem:

Yes, you heard it right: “We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men and women created by the, you know, you know, the thing. You know, how we talk about. The, we, the people.” Somewhere, Thomas Jefferson is rolling over in his grave.

The obviously impaired geezer also apparently thinks Buttigieg is actually Eric Swalwell:

You could never make this stuff up, folks, never in a million years.

The Commie, Bernie Sanders, seemed unfazed by it all, being used as he is to seeing the Democrat establishment working to rig elections against him. He made a speech in San Jose, California in which he welcomed all the former Buittigieg and Klubuchar supporters into his fold, knowing that a large percentage of those folks – especially among the Preacher Pete support base – are commies at heart. He most likely laughed out loud when he saw O’Rourke trying to make himself relevant to something again.

Meanwhile, Mini-Mike Bloomberg made an ass of himself on national TV one more time, making the strategic error of appearing in a town hall on Fox News. Watch his answer when an audience member asks, “How do you justify pushing for more gun control when you have an armed security detail that is likely equipped with the same firearms and magazines you seek to ban the common citizen from owning? Does your life matter more than mine or my family’s, or these people’s?

Bloomberg: “Look, I probably get 40-50 threats every week, ok, and some of them are real. That just happens when you are the mayor of New York City, or if you’re very wealthy and you’re campaigning for president of the United States. You get lots of threats, so I have a security detail. I pay for it all myself, and, uh, um, you know, they’re all retired police officers who are very well trained in firearms.”

Oh. Does anything he said there justify his position of banning common citizens from owning firearms? What he just said there is exactly what you’d expect a hubris-consumed person of massive wealth and privilege to say: “It’s fine for very wealthy people like me and my security detail to have guns because we need them to protect us from people like you.”

Note that he rubs this ordinary guy’s nose in his own massive wealth not once, but twice in the span four sentences. An intelligent, well-coached candidate would have said something like, “Look, I’m a candidate for president right now, and before that I was mayor of New York City. The unfortunate reality of our society today is that, when you put yourself into those positions of public service, you have to have armed security because of all the threats you receive. I do not carry a gun in my personal life and never will.”

There, see how easy and much more effective that was? Who in the hell is advising this man?

The reality of Mini-Mike as a candidate is that he has got to be the single most clueless individual on the face of the earth. And this answer, in a nutshell, illustrates to us all why the Democrat party establishment is so panicked now to try to prop up the obviously impaired Biden.

Their efforts are probably too late and will most likely go for naught. There are 1357 convention delegates up for grabs today and the Commie is most likely going to win somewhere between 800 and 900 of them.  The rest will be split up in some proportions between Quid Pro Joe, Mini-Mike and Fauxcahontas, who has refused thus far to end her hopeless campaign, even though she most likely got the same call from Obama that the others received.

So, Gropey Dopey Joe might come away with 300 or so, with Mini-Mike and Lieawatha divvying up the rest.

By the end of the day today, a little more than 40% of the total delegates in this nominating race will have been awarded, and The Commie is poised to own right about half of the 1900+ he needs to win on a first ballot at the Democrat convention in July.

After yesterday’s events, you can literally smell the panic and fear setting in at DNC headquarters. For the rest of America, it is the sweet aroma of #WINNING.

Joe Biden: The Unfrozen Caveman Comeback Kid – for 72 Hours

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

He wants to be the president who appoints the first black female to the United States Senate! – That is exactly what Quid Pro Joe Biden told an audience at a rally on Friday, and the rest of the Democrat presidential field is so weak that they voted for him anyway.

So, now America’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator gets to be the Democrats’ Unfrozen Caveman Comeback Kid.  For about 72 hours. By then, most of the results from the Super Tuesday states will have come in, and Crazy Uncle Joe will be right back where he belongs, sucking the wind of The Commie’s campaign.

Even the ardent Biden hacks on CNN’s massive panel of election analysis hackery last night admitted that the prospects ahead for the buffonish ex-Veep are painfully thin: Hey, if he can win a few states – some combination of Arkansas, North Carolina and/or Virginia – on Tuesday, and be competitive enough to pick up delegates in some other states, like Texas and Oklahoma, then he can keep raising a little money and keep his horribly-run campaign on life support for a couple more weeks, until the next raft of big states come up on March 17. That is when the states of Ohio, Illinois, Florida and Arizona hold their primaries.

To his credit, Quid Pro Joe actually seems to be leading in Florida, although the polling data there thus far is very sparse, and the momentum from his big South Carolina win might well help him maintain that position there. We have no information thus far in terms of polls from any of those other states.

But let’s say Biden is actually able to win Florida and maybe one of those other states – one would certainly think he would be competitive in Illinois, for example. In that event, there would be no question that Quid Pro Joe would be able to continue making a fool of himself all the way through the July convention in Milwaukee.

With Steyer dropping out of the race last night [finally], and the Warren, Klobuchar and Buttigieg campaigns now having zero real reason to continue other than the candidates’ own hubris, Mini-Mike becomes the only other meaningful factor in the race from this point forward.

Make no mistake about it: Mr. Excitement is only a factor because he happens to have $62 billion to burn through. Despite having already frittered away half a billion, mostly on paid advertising, Bloomberg still has a net negative favorability rating among Democrat voters, and virtually zero appeal to the black voters who are so crucial to Democrat success. Exit polls from South Carolina yesterday showed Mini-Mike with at 22/66 favorable/unfavorable rating from the heavily-black Democrat voters in that state. That’s about the rating Satan would get from those same voters. He is a horribly unappealing candidate.

The question for Bloomberg now becomes what will he do after he has a terrible showing on Super Tuesday? Because that’s what is going to happen. It is doubtful he will actually win a single one of the 14 states being contested on Tuesday. He will not even be competitive in California, and is likely to finish a distant third in Texas, where the intensity of his advertising has dropped noticeably in the past week.

Bloomberg has repeatedly said that he is willing to spend up to $2 billion of his personal fortune in his effort to prevent President Donald Trump’s re-election. Regular readers here will know that my belief is that he never expected to be able to win the Democrat nomination, but became a “candidate” so that he would receive the preferential advertising rates that candidates are entitled to.

With the DNC essentially broke, Bloomberg serves both as a proxy for the anti-Trump spending the Party would have normally done, and as a stalking horse for Biden or some other “moderate” candidate to challenge The Commie come convention time.

Thus, my bet is that Mini-Mike will continue his “candidacy” through July regardless of his ability to actually attract votes, so that he can keep buying TV ads at the lower, preferential candidate rates.

Preacher Pete, Fauxcahontas and Klobuchar will all end their flagging efforts after failing to do much on Super Tuesday, which means Americans can now look forward to the prospect of having to endure a three-person contest between an outright communist radical, an obviously impaired former vice president, and a tiny billionaire with no prospects of winning anything other than the race to see who can burn through the most money.

That is our life, all the way through July.

 

My updated odds on the ultimate Democrat nominee:

The Commie – 5 to 4

Quid Pro Joe – 2 to 1

Someone not currently in the field – 10 to 1

Mini-Mike – 20 to 1

Klobuchar – 20 to 1 (She’s a potential compromise nominee at a deadlocked convention)

Fauxcahontas – 100 to 1

Preacher Pete – 1,000 to 1

Mike Bloomberg is the Wizard of Oz

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Mike Bloomberg is the illustrative case for the limits of the effectiveness of paid advertising.

Quid Pro Joe Biden is so confident of a victory in South Carolina on Saturday that he just scheduled an appearance on Fox New Sunday with Chris Wallace Sunday morning so he can brag about his first-ever primary victory across his 3 different presidential campaigns.

The Commie, Bernie Sanders, has so much momentum in the race for the nomination that he is now regularly drawing crowds of thousands to his campaign rallies.

Fauxcahontas is running surprisingly strong in a raft of Super Tuesday polls, coming in second to The Commie key states like California and Massachusetts, and a strong third place in Texas.

Meanwhile, Mini-Mike Bloomberg is left sucking wind. After spending more than $400 million of his personal fortune, mostly on paid advertising, Mr. Excitement’s insurgent presidential campaign is foundering with little prospect of recovery.

The little ex-Mayor’s polling numbers have collapsed in the wake of two disastrous debate performances, and with his ubiquitous advertising campaign now having reached point of saturation – and probably even now having moved into the consumer annoyance phase – he has no visible options available to change the trajectory of the race in his favor.

Bloomberg’s money was able to influence Democrat voters to a certain extent, and at one point had even gotten him to the point of leading in polls in Arkansas and Oklahoma. But no amount of advertising can force voters to support a candidate whose stark reality as revealed in those nationally-televised debate did not in any way measure up to the image presented in his ads.

That image was of a man of supreme confidence, energy and competence who could get things done in the face of great adversity. The reality seen in the debates was of a nervous, stammering old man with little energy, a man who had no believable answers when challenged by a life-long fraud like Lieawatha to explain himself.

The image was of a man who could stand up to the evil Trump and blast him in a general election campaign. The reality seen in the debates was a tiny man who couldn’t stand up to the likes of Preacher Pete, The Commie and Amy Klobuchar.

The image was of a compassionate individual who treated women and minorities with equality and respect. The reality seen in the debates and videos of his past statements was of an abusive boss who discriminated against women in the workplace and against minorities while serving as Mayor of the nation’s largest city.

Once the reality of the man had been revealed for all to see, no amount of paid advertising could put that genie back into the bottle.

Mike Bloomberg is the man behind the curtain. He is, at the end of the day, The Wizard of Oz.

South Carolina Debate Confirms: This is now Bernie Sanders’ Race to Lose

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Ok, I’m embarrassed to admit it, but I watched the Democrat debate last night. What a damn circus. – I suppose the best thing to say about this one was that at least they didn’t spend ten minutes promising to ban fracking, blot the global landscape with millions of 700 ft. tall windmills, and use Unicorn breath to power their fantasy-based energy plans.

But while the panel of pedantic CBS moderators at least spared us from that indignity, every other Democrat fantasy was played out once again for all to see on national television. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Quid Pro Joe Biden, after informing America that he personally wrote the assault weapons ban – which will come as a huge surprise to Dianne Feinstein – of the 1990s, told us in his very next breath that, since that ban was repealed in 2006, “150 million Americans” have been mowed down on our streets by gun violence (the actual number is about 1/1000th of that). As if to emphasize that his multiple brain aneurysms were acting up again, the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator emphasized that orders of magnitude exaggeration by informing us that that is more than those who have died in all of America’s wars combined (it isn’t even close). The raving lunatic will most likely claim he was misquoted today, that is if any corrupt journalist even bothers to ask him about it.
  • The Commie went basically untouched throughout the debate, even though every other candidate did their best to molest him. But Sanders is just too unflappable to take their bait. His best moment for the demented Democrat voter base – and worst moment for his general election prospects – came when he once again expounded on the joys of Fidel Castro’s half-century of communist despotism in Cuba. He had even Fauxcahontas shaking her head in frustration by the end of the night.
  • Speaking of Lieawatha, she repeated her outright lie about being fired from a teaching job at age 21 because she was pregnant, a lie that none of the corrupt fake CBS journalists made any effort to question. She laid out that whopper in the context of excoriating Mini-Mike Bloomberg for once telling a newly-pregnant female employee to “kill it!” Warren obviously went into last night’s debate hoping to devastate the tiny ex-mayor as she did in last week’s Las Vegas debate, but the “kill it” reference turned out to be a bridge too far, one that had even the CNN panelists tsk-tsking at her after the debate.
  • Speaking of mayors, Preacher Pete was his usual sanctimoniously loquacious self, constantly interrupting others and pontificating about all manner of issues related to which he has zero practical experience, like Middle East policy. The guy who proved incapable of competently managing a town of 100,000 residents has a detailed plan for literally everything, making him the perfect running mate for The Commie, for whom he could serve in multiple roles as vice presidential candidate, accountant, actuary and lay preacher.
  • Tom Steyer helped Mini-Mike form billionaire bookends at opposite ends of the stage lineup, and he stood there barking like a madman and constantly doing the whole rock-n-roll base guitarist chicken head nod as if he was yelling in time with a bad Black Sabbath number. No one could possibly pay attention to the words he was actually screaming due to all of the visual distractions he presents.
  • Stuck standing next to Steyer and hopefully wearing ear plugs was Amy Klobuchar, who probably had the best night of any of the participants in terms of potentially appealing to enough voters to actually win in November. But it won’t matter. She simply cannot compete in the money race, and she makes too much occasional sense to ever hope to win the Party’s nomination in July. Her best moment came when she was talking about a housing bill she had authored, and Biden jumped in with one of his patented Turrets Syndrome-like “I wrote that bill!” blurts. Klobuchar just shook her head like an impatient mom scolding a 5 year-old child and said, “Joe, you didn’t write that bill.” I do not agree with Klobuchar on basically anything, but I’ve developed a grudging admiration for her because she is pretty much the only person on that stage who is authentically stating the things she believes. But authenticity, of course, is basically a death knell for any Democrat presidential candidate, so she will continue to tread water in the race.
  • Finally, there’s Mr. Excitement, Mini-Mike Bloomberg. As mentioned above, Lieawatha went after him fiercely again because she has made the calculation that Bloomberg can’t stop The Commie and she sees herself now as Sanders’ likely running mate. The best thing that can be said about Bloomberg’s performance last night is that it wasn’t quite as awful as his performance last week. He was certainly helped along by moderators Norah O’Donnell and Gayle King, who tossed him several softball questions that the two had obviously prepared for in advance. Like Lester Holt last week, both CBS talking heads behaved as if they were firmly on Mr. Excitement’s payroll and want to stay there. Packing the auditorium’s audience with a no-doubt paid-for cheering section also helped.

The big question coming into this debate was whether Mini-Mike could rehabilitate himself and stop the bleeding following his disastrous performance in Las Vegas. The answer appears to be that he may have done just enough stabilize things through Super Tuesday, now just 6 days away. The tiny ex-Mayor’s problem there, though, is that he doesn’t hold a clear lead in a single one of those states as of today. He needed a big-time, confidence-inspiring performance last night and he just is not capable of delivering that in a debate format, especially one as chaotic as these Democrat debates have become.

The big winners last night were, in order:

Donald Trump, for the same obvious reasons he has been the big winner of all the previous Democrat debates;

The Commie, who didn’t take any big hits and will remain the clear front-runner;

Quid Pro Joe, who likely did just enough despite his major gaffe to secure a win in South Carolina.

The big losers were, in order:

Tom Steyer, who will lose badly on Saturday after pouring tens of millions into South Carolina;

Preacher Pete, who needed some sort of big moment to remain viable, and couldn’t do it.

 

Bottom line: Despite all of the histrionics and buffoonery on stage, this ended up being a status quo debate, one that solidified Quid Pro Joe’s firewall in South Carolina, firmed-up The Commie’s standing as the clear front-runner for the nomination, and ensured that Mr. Excitement will continue to waste hundreds of millions of his own fortune on paid advertising that has most likely already taken him as far as it can.

This is now officially The Commie’s race to lose.

 

Here are my updated odds for the ultimate winner of the Democrat nomination:

The Commie – 5 to 4

Mini-Mike – 5 to 1

Quid Pro Joe – 5 to 1

Fauxcahontas – 30 to 1

Preacher Pete – 50 to 1

Klobuchar – 100 to 1

Steyer – infinity to 1

Tulsi Gabbard – is she still running?

Someone not currently in the race – 3 to 1

 

That is all.
