Mayor Pete Has Stolen Beto’s Media Date to the Dance

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

Why, what could possibly go wrong? – A team of Chinese scientists is grafting human genes into monkeys, in an effort to make them “smarter and more human-like.” I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

According to the report in the Business Recorder, “Researchers edited the human version of a gene known as ‘MCPH1’ into the macaques. The gene made the monkeys’ brain develop along a more human-like timelineThe gene-hacked monkeys showed better reaction times and improved short-term memories in comparison to their unaltered peers...”  I smell a sequel to “Plant of the Apes” in there somewhere.

In all seriousness, these monkeys should immediately announce their candidacy for the Democrat presidential nomination. They would smarter than half the field, better-behaved that Irish Bob O’Rourke, make a great target for Amy Klobuchar to vent her frustrations, and be far more “human-like” than Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders.

And speaking of Irish Bob O’Rourke… – Here’s the problem with being a media-created Democrat “Rising Star”: Everything tends to go to crap when the media inevitably finds a new rising star to create. For our hero, Irish Bob, it’s all turning into a tale of woe – or, more accurately, one of woeful polls that came out yesterday in the states that make up the first two contests of the nominating process.

First came a new Monmouth University poll of registered Democrat voters in Iowa, where O’Rourke spent the first week or so of his official campaign in March, driving around the corn fields in his carbon dioxide-emitting gas-powered van because he wanted to show he was a man of the people and the people in Iowa don’t drive no Teslas because Teslas don’t use no Ethanol, don’t you know. That pandering strategy apparently did not work out so well for our sheep suit-wearing fake Hispanic, nor did all the jumping up on the nearest table and waving his arms to get attention.

The results of the Monmouth poll are clear: Iowans don’t much care for Beto. O’Rourke, who just a few months ago was widely touted as one of the favorites in this race by his legion of media adorers, came in a very weak sixth place with just 6% support, trailing Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg, Kamala Harris and even Fauxcahontas in the results.

Yes, friends, Iowa Democrats prefer a fake Indian to a fake Hispanic. Go figure.

As if that result weren’t awful enough for the premiere media darling of 2018, the folks at St. Anselm’s College released a poll of New Hampshire Democrat voters to make matters even more depressing. It turns out that Granite State Democrats would rather live free or die than vote for a circus clown who livestreams his dental cleanings and calls Bibi Netanyahu a racist.

Irish Bob again comes in a very weak sixth place, again with just 6% support in this poll. He trails the same five other candidates as in New Hampshire, though in a slightly different order, with the fake Indian popping up ahead of Harris in this state.

So, what’s going on here? Well, several things.

First, as I noted a few weeks ago, Irish Bob most likely missed his window of opportunity to become an immediate, early leader in this race. He was without question the media’s favorite Democrat at the end of 2018 – they had a crush on him like a high school cheerleader with a crush on the team’s quarterback. That crush would have continued and even intensified had he returned the media’s longing desires by immediately and decisively announcing his candidacy on New Year’s Day or very shortly thereafter.

But he didn’t do that. Instead, he did what high school quarterbacks often do and fooled around for a few months. While the adoring media longed to have its precious Beto in the race, Irish Bob chose to play the field, as it were, hemming and hawing, often disappearing for weeks at a time, and refusing to commit to the relationship that the media so desperately desired.

In the meantime, other candidates anxious to attain the media’s “Rising Star” status were getting into the race and eagerly courting the media’s affections. First came Kamala Harris, who rocketed up the charts firmly into a strong 3rd place behind Biden and Sanders as soon as she offered to take the media out on their first date. It seemed to be a match made in fake news media heaven for awhile, until Harris began committing repeated gaffes, like getting caught on camera letting a CNN fake reporter help her pick out jackets at a high-dollar department store. That show of favoritism to one fake media outlet served to turn other fake media outlets off and had them go out looking for another “Rising Star” to create.

Enter Pete Buttigieg, or “Mayor Pete”, as his media adorers now love to call him. Young, good-looking, smart, quick with the recitation of his favorite talking points, able to hold his own in a tough interview with Chris Wallace – young Mayor Pete seemingly has it all, including being openly gay and married, which is like manna from heaven for his media courtiers.

As first Irish Bob’s and then Kamala’s “rising stars” have faded, it is no accident at all that Mayor Pete’s has eclipsed them in the Democrat Party’s media-created night sky. That’s what a plethora of softball interviews on the cable and broadcast networks, along with all the glowing “He’s just like another Kennedy!” profiles in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the New Yorker and Vanity Fair will do for a guy.

And here’s the thing about Mayor Pete: He’s not stupid or self-absorbed enough to just blow his media cheerleaders off, like their precious Beto did. Nor is he inept enough to engage in a similar series of off-putting gaffes like the bumbling Kamala.

No, Mr. Buttigieg is not a mere shooting star, no flash in the pan, as it were. You should get used to seeing his name running strong in the polling in this race, at least until someone even more attractive to the fickle fake media cheerleaders comes along and sweeps them off their feet.

Other than possibly those monkeys in China, it’s getting harder and harder to see who is still out there who might swoop in and get the media’s date to the Homecoming dance.

That is all.

Jump on in, Alec Baldwin, the Water’s Fine!

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

Go for it, dude. – Fading actor and public assault and battery specialist Alec Baldwin took to his Twitter account yesterday (because that’s how all the fading celebrities communicate – right, Alyssa Milano?) and said this:

Yeah, that’s what Hillary Clinton thought, too. But, oh, hell, why not? Why not have an actor who is most famous for impersonating the President run against him? Would he be any less credible than than the assortment of cranks, hacks, and political grifters who are already in the race?

After all, the field already includes a candidate who is most famous for impersonating an Indian, another who thinks he is Spartacus, a senator who got ahead by sleeping around, another senator who is most notable for abusing her staff, a senator from New York who nobody can figure out why in the hell she’s in the race, a loser who wears sheep suits and rides a skateboard onto stage, a Commie who honeymooned at Lenin’s tomb, and a former vice president who can’t keep his hands off of women and children.

Would Alec Baldwin really bring any less credibility to a presidential race than that clown car? I mean, shoot, he did play Jack Ryan in a movie that one time, so he’s got that going for him.

And I haven’t even mentioned Pete Buttigieg yet. Here’s a guy who favors murdering children right up until the moment at which they would be born and even beyond, and he just spent half an interview on “Meet the Press” and much of his speech at something called the LGBTQ Victory Fund National Champagne Brunch questioning the religious beliefs of the sitting President and Vice President of the United States.

Well, isn’t that special? (Some of you baby boomers will get that reference; you Millennials will probably have to Google it.)

As I predicted a few weeks ago, Mr. Buttigieg is the latest media-facilitated “rising star” in Democrat circles, a guy with no real notable political achievements to speak of – other than getting elected to a notable office – but a guy who checks a lot of the demographic boxes favored by the Democrats’ social justice warrior voter base and who looks good on television. He’s probably about to be eclipsed by the looming, very large presence of the next media-facilitated Democrat “rising star”, Stacey Abrams, but for now, he’s da bomb in media circles, the guy all the Sunday shows are dying to have as their guest and all the fake newspapers and magazines like Vanity Fair can’t wait to profile and compare to Kennedys. He should enjoy all the attention while he can.

But wait, there’s more!

Now, we have this Eric Swalwell guy officially running. He made that official announcement on … wait for it… the Late Show with Stephen Colbert! Because of course he did.

Swalwell is a guy who has the maturity level of the average college frat social director – he is Otter from “Animal House” in the flesh.

His entire schtick is to go on CNN and MSNBC and lie about all the proof of Russia Collusion he has seen but can’t talk about in any detail because it’s all like doublesecretprobation and stuff and only he and Adam Schiff have seen it but everyone is supposed to believe him because he’s the social director for the biggest frat of all, the Democrat Party.

*sigh*

If Lorne Michaels and the writers at Saturday Night Live were intent on creating real humor these days rather than tiresome political swill, they’d invite Tim Matheson to guest host and have him do an impression of Eric Swalwell announcing his presidential run standing next to the beer keg at the frat party. Have Stephen Colbert play the Boone character. That would be some funny stuff right there.

But back to Alec Baldwin: He was likely joking with that tweet yesterday, but hey, why wouldn’t he go ahead and jump into this race? After all, it’s already a car filled with clowns, and he’s a professional clown these days, so he’d fit right in.

Kamala would probably even let him call shotgun.

That is all.

Kirstjen Nielsen Resigns, and Nothing Much Will Change

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

Nielsen’s out, and not much will change. – Kirstjen Nielsen became the fall guy for the ongoing fiasco at our southern border last night, to be replaced as Homeland Security Secretary by ex-Obama official Kevin McAleenan, who served as Deputy Secretary under the infamous Jeh Johnson.

So, what difference will the change in personnel make? Not much. The problem at the border is with the tragic state of our laws and politically-motivated court decisions issued by outlaw Obama judges. Until congress acts to change the laws – and this particular congress is not going to do so – the situation at the border cannot be resolved without the building of a wall. Even with a wall, it will remain near-impossible for the government to send invaders who manage to sneak into our country illegally back home unless the absurd loopholes in the asylum laws are changed. Simple as that.

So, the Democrats have “won” in this issue: They have succeeded in creating a situation of utter chaos on our border with Mexico, they have the literal invasion of our country they’ve worked for so many years to create, and no one in a position of power can do anything effective to stop it. This is the ultimate outcome of the Obama/Soros plan to “transform this country”, as Obama was so fond of saying throughout his presidency. And hey, they had plenty of help from Paul Ryan, John McCain, Mitch McConnell and the Republican majorities in both houses of congress, who did literally nothing on this issue during President Trump’s first two years in office.

A pox on all their houses.

This is the issue on which the 2020 presidential election will be decided. – The President can talk all he wants to about the booming economy and Democrats can talk all they want about Green New Deals and free stuff for everybody, but, just like it was in 2016, what to do about the ongoing invasion – and that is what it is – taking place from Texas to California will ultimately decide who gets to live in the White House starting in 2021.

President Trump understands this, which is why he decided last week to put off dealing with the healthcare issue until after the 2020 election has come and gone, choosing instead to keep his focus on border security and pounding his Democrat opponents for refusing to do anything to address it.

The winning strategy for Trump is obvious: Get as many miles of new border wall built as you can with all that Department of Defense money that’s been identified, and pound the Democrats on the issue every day. Keep them on the defensive for the next 18 months.

That leaves the Democrats with what they always try to do on this subject: Rank demagoguery and trying to change the subject.

Hey, thanks to the Paul Ryan/Mitt Romney/John McCain wing of the GOP, it’s worked for them so far.

Some campaign odd and ends:

How moribund is Elizabeth Warren’s campaign? Fauxcahontas is running a poor third in her home state of Massachusetts. That moribund. And look who’s about to catch her there: Pete Buttigieg. Ouch.

Speaking of moribund campaigns, how about Cory Booker’s? He announced he had raised $5 million during the first quarter of this year, which sounds like a decent number until you realize that Buttigieg, the little-known mayor of South Bend, Indiana, had raised $7 million. Yikes.

Bernie Sanders led the Q1 money race for the Dems, coming in at $18 million. Kamala Harris raised $12 million, while Irish Bob O’Rourke came in at $9.4 million, with most of that coming in March following his announcement in late February. Because he hasn’t formally announced, frontrunner Joe Biden had no fundraising numbers to release.

Meanwhile, President Trump raised $67.5 million, $26 million more than those five leading Democrats combined.

Oh.

That is all.

Loser Stacey Abrams Personifies the Bizarre Requirement for Democrat Superstardom

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

Qualification Numero Uno: Are you a recent loser? – Tim Ryan, a relatively obscure congressman from Ohio and Eric Swalwell, a disgusting demagogue from California, both entered the swelling field of candidates for the Democrat 2020 presidential nomination this week. Cool, right?

Right. But you don’t need to spend too much time worrying about whether either one will ultimately win the party’s nomination for one simple reason: Neither of them can make a credible claim of being a political loser.

Wait, what? Is that a typo? Am I mainlining rotgut vodka like Chelsea Handler has been doing for the last 30 years? Am I auditioning for a job with CNN by getting it 100% wrong????

Well, no, none of that. I’m dead serious here: It is a simple fact that, in order to be considered to be a serious contender for the 2020 Democrat nomination, a candidate has to first be a fully-certified loser. In fact, being a recent, laughable loser is the quickest way to have our fake news media declare you to be a “superstar.” The Democrat Party and its lapdogs in the fake news media are quite literally obsessed with political loooooooosers, especially recent ones.

Irish Bob O’Rourke, who managed to lose his 2018 senate race to incumbent Ted Cruz despite piling up a 3-to-1 spending advantage, is the most obvious example of this growing phenomenon. The media’s beloved “Beto” has been declared either a “rising star” or “superstar” by pretty much every major fake media outlet in the free world at this point, for no reason other than that he managed to lose fairly closely to his GOP opponent. Well, that and live-streaming his dental appointments on Facebook, which was just so darn cool.

Then there’s the even odder case of Stacey Abrams, the loser in last year’s Georgia gubernatorial race. She managed to lose that race despite a major spending advantage, along with a rampant, blatant voter fraud campaign in her hip pocket. Despite all of that, and despite a slavish news media giving her tens of millions of dollars in free air time and print space, the final count showed her coming up more than 50,000 votes short. There just weren’t enough cemetery, prison or illegal alien voters in all of Georgia to close that gap.

So, what has she done in response? Why, she’s taken a page out of the Pantsuit Princess’s book of political projection, accusing her opponent of being the one who was stealing votes, refusing to accept the outcome of the race, and declaring herself to be the rightful governor of Georgia, a claim literally no one actually believes but corrupt media hacks glowingly support.

Don’t believe me? Here’s how MSNBC’s bigot host Joy Ann Reid let her Twitter audience know Abrams would be her guest on her Sunday morning show:

She’s not just another failed politician who’s never won a race above the state representative level: She’s a “superstar”!

See what I’m getting at here? Indeed, Abrams is such a darn “superstar” that there is rampant chatter in Democrat and media circles (but I repeat myself) that she is probably going to mount her own presidential campaign. Because, hey, why not?

You just can’t make this stuff up, folks.

Why not, indeed? Abrams likely sits in her extremely roomy living room easy chair, perusing the latest Democrat presidential polls and thinks “geez, all these people are losers, too, so why not me?”

Look who’s leading those polls:

Joe Biden – two-time miserable looooser in Democrat presidential politics;

The Commie – loooooser to the Pantsuit Princess in the rigged primaries of 2016;

Irish Bob O’Rourke – last year’s most famous loser, running a weak third to the Commie;

Kamala Harris – such a looooser that she had to carry on a years-long affair with Willie Brown in order to advance her career;

Those four loooosers are combining to hog 70% of the support in the current RealClearPolitics average of Democrat polls. The rest of the field, consisting almost exclusively of politicians who have never lost a political race in their lives, are left to scramble for the remaining 30%.

This is reality.

So, when you see reports indicating that a miserable political looooser like Stacey Abrams is considered to be a “superstar” in Democrat/media circles, don’t laugh, because these people are deadly serious. They are obsessed with such losers, and it’s a safe bet that it’s just a matter of time before the failure from Georgia enters the race.

Republicans everywhere should rejoice.

That is all.

Six More Years of “President Donald Trump”? Magic 8-ball says “Most Likely”

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

Hey, when he’s right, he’s right.  – At a rally in Michigan last night, President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) put the exact right label on the Democrats’ refusal to drop the whole Russia Collusion fantasy in the wake of the end of the Mueller “investigation,” referring to their ongoing propaganda campaign as “ridiculous bullshit.”

Here’s the full quote:

“The Democrats have to now decide whether they will continue defrauding the public with ridiculous bullshit, partisan investigations, or whether they will apologize to the American people and join us to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure, bring down the cost of health care and prescription drugs … help us fix our broken trade deals,” he said to the crowd.

Be honest:  One of the things that makes you a little bit uncomfortable about President Trump is that he so often expresses exactly what you were thinking but were reluctant to blurt out yourself. Coming as I do from a family of Texas over-cussers, I can think of no better way to describe the ongoing behavior of Democrats like Adam Schiff, Jabba the Nadler, Irish Bob O’Rourke and Eric Swalwell than to call it “ridiculous bullshit.” Because that’s what it is.

Personally, I appreciate the President for going ahead and saying it so I would feel justified myself repeating it several times in this morning’s Campaign Update. Because it is ridiculous bullshit – it just is.

Speaking of Trump’s rally in Michigan… – Democrats who poo-poo the President’s rallies as being insignificant are quite frankly whistling past the graveyard. Yesterday’s rally in Grand Rapids – a city of less than 200,000 – attracted more than 32,000 people. At one point, the line waiting to get into the Van Andel Arena stretched for more than a mile. As usual, the thousands who could not gain admittance into the facility stood outside and watched on giant TV screens.

This is not a one-time fluke – this happens over and over and over again at every rally the President holds. The Democrats and their fake news media flunkies want you to believe that this is a very unpopular POTUS, but his 50% approval rating in the Rasmussen survey tells another story, and his average public approval rating is higher than Ronald Reagan’s was at this point in his first term in office.

An unpopular, failing president would have a hard time attracting major crowds like this one. But these rallies have actually grown larger and more intense over time, not less so. Just as with the big Obama rallies in 2008, they are in fact a harbinger of a very strong candidate, an incumbent whose re-election chances are growing stronger by the day.

I don’t like to hyper-focus on polls since they are so unreliable, but the new Quinnipiac poll out this week it a good indicator of what an uphill climb the Democrats truly have in 2020. Here’s a link to The Hill’s report on this poll.

First, as The Hill notes in its blaring headline, Pete Buttigieg has “surged”, now getting 4% support in the Democrat horse race. Second, Fauxcahontas is mired way down in a tie with the 37 year-old mayor of South Bend, IN. Ouch. Things are just not working out for Little Mouth Always Running, are they?

Third, Irish Bob O’Rourke has very predictably moved past a fading Kamala Harris to capture 3rd place, pulling 12% to Harris’s 8%. Fourth, Creepy Joe Biden now holds a 10-point lead over the Commie at 29-19.

None of those results are in any way surprising to anyone who has been paying attention to the dynamics of this race, which is admittedly still in its very early stages.  Harris has thus far been a stumbling, bumbling disaster of a candidate, a prime example of someone whose time in the public spotlight came well before she was ready for it.

The Commie has his base of support, but finds it getting peeled away by all the other commies in the race, like Buttigieg, for example. It’s like he’s dying a death by a thousand cuts, as all the other craven candidates keep stealing his issues and policy positions.

Biden hasn’t even formally announced his candidacy yet, but continues to attract fairly strong early support on name recognition and his association with Obama. That Obama-glow will steadily wear away as the race goes on, and we will probably see “Peak Biden” as his polls surge in the week after his formal announcement, and then slowly but steadily fade as the long race drags on and the demented Democrat voter base wake up to who he really is.

So, none of that is any surprise at all.  But here is what is a surprise buried deep in the bowels of this poll:

Just 57% of the self-identified Democrats and Democrat-leaning registered voters polled in this survey say they will not vote for President Trump regardless of who the Democrat nominee is in 2020. That is an extraordinarily low percentage from this segment of society, meaning as it does that fully 43% of “Democrats and Democrat-leaning registered voters” are open to the idea of a second Trump term in office.

Ooof.

Get used to saying President Donald Trump, Democrats, because you most likely have 6 more years to do so.

That is all.

Joe Biden Continues the Democrat Obsession With Political Losers

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

The Democrat presidential nomination battle is already a three-ring circus, and the far left elements of the Democrat base are going to make sure it stays that way.

Yesterday, ex-Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, who is struggling to gain a foothold in the race, found himself in trouble with the social justice warrior crowd when his effort to imply that a woman may well win the nominating contest fell flat with the humorless left.  The first mistake Hickenlooper made was accepting CNN’s invitation to get a little (very little, given CNN’s dwindling audience) free media by doing a televised town hall hosted by leftist activist Dana Bash on Wednesday night. The second mistake he made was to try to inject a little wit into any answer to any question, because he is trying to attract votes from the most witless element of our society.

When Bash asked him the standard question about whether or not he would name a woman as his running mate, Hickenlooper first said “Of course.” Had he just stopped right there and waited for the next question, he’d have been just fine. Unfortunately for Hickenlooper, he felt the need to expand. It all went downhill from there.

“But … I’ll ask you another question,” Hickenlooper said, “How come we’re not asking, more often, the women, ‘Would you be willing to put a man on the ticket?’”

Now, the ex-Governor’s intent there was to imply that, in this nominating race, it is entirely possible that a woman might win the nomination – his answer was a little back-handed jab at Bash for assuming a man is going to come out on top. With Sen. Kamala Harris currently running a strong third in the polls behind two pasty white guys who are older than the dirt Irish Bob O’Rourke eats for breakfast, and the Pantsuit Princess and Michelle Obama still lurking out there in the wings, it is certainly entirely possible the Democrat Party will once again have a female nominee in 2020.

But the leftist outrage mob has no sense of humor or understanding of this thing called “wit”, and is determined to be outraged. That determination meant that Hickenlooper’s remark was intended as a shot against women, not a compliment to them, as the outrage mob went berserk all over CNN, MSNBC and social media all day on Thursday.

The moral of this story? Understand your audience, Governor. Never try to inject wit into an answer when you’re seeking the votes of witless people. Just say “Of course”, accept the inevitable applause, and move on.

Speaking of moving on, the radical nutjobs at Moveon.org this week put out a demand to all of the Democrats running for the presidency to boycott this year’s meeting of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) as an expression of their support for the wave of rank anti-Semitism that currently infests the American left. To no one’s surprise, at least eight of the candidates, eager to appeal to the growing Ilhan Omar faction of the demented Democrat voter base, have agreed to participate in the boycott.

Those agreeing to Moveon’s demand thus far include Kamala Harris, Irish Bob O’Rourke, The Commie, Fauxcahontas, Kirsten Gillibrand, Julian Castro, Pete Buttigieg, and Jay Inslee. No word yet from Hickenlooper, Biden, Amy Klobuchar, Andrew Yang or Cory Booker, but you can be sure they will all be under intense pressure today to follow their fellow spineless candidates over this anti-Semite cliff.

Then there’s Creepy Uncle Joe. The elderly, pasty-white guy from Delaware is anxious not to become the prime target of the mushrooming “we hate old white guys” faction of the party’s voter base. In the hopes of putting a beard on his blinding old white guy-ness, Biden is now floating a trial balloon in which he would promise to name failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who happens to be female and black, as his running mate.

So once again, this current Democrat obsession with political looooooooosers raises its curious head.  Nothing against Ms. Abrams, but she lost her race, lost it by more than 50,000 votes in fact, despite obviously benefiting from a pretty robust voter fraud operation and all the free media our fake news media could reasonably provide.

There are literally hundreds of successful, winning minority female politicians out there who Biden could have targeted for this trial balloon. For example, there’s Mad Maxine Waters, who for more than a year in 2017-18 was literally the demented face of the Democrat Party before the party’s leaders convinced her to tone things down. She’s won every election race she’s ever run – why not her?

Then there’s Texas congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, who must be sitting around grumbling, “why not me?” Say what you will about Cong. Lee – and there are many, many things to be said about her – there is no denying that she has also been extremely successful in getting elected and repeatedly re-elected.

Speaking of winning Democrats who are making a real mark, there’s Cong. Ilhan Omar, who has now become the leading voice of anti-Semitism in America.  Why not her?

Or hey, how about a Hispanic 2018 gubernatorial candidate who actually won her race, like New Mexico’s Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham? Lord knows there are plenty of New Mexico citizens who would love to see her leave to run for Veep so they could get a do-over on that race.

But I digress.  The question here is why so much focus on Ms. Abrams, whose only actual experience in government is as a state representative who made no real mark in that role? Why was she chosen, out of all the possible candidates out there, to deliver the Democrat Party’s response to the State of the Union address? Why is this political loser considered to be such a rising influence within the Party?

Makes no sense to me.  But then, I’m not a Democrat.

Thank God.

That is all.

Joe Biden and Other Democrats Who Will Not be the 2020 Nominee

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

Some of these Democrats just missed their moments. Others never had a moment, and never will. – I’ve already talked about my belief  that Irish Bob O’Rourke missed his moment by dithering around for four months before announcing his candidacy, but let’s talk about two other Democrats who missed their moments by not running in 2016 against the Pantsuit Princess:  Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker.

Had she run in the 2016 Democrat primaries, Senator Little Mouth Always Running might have been able to leverage herself in between The Commie and the Fainting Felon as the compromise candidate for the party’s voters. True, it would have been extremely hard overcoming the pernicious influence of the Clinton Machine, which conspired with the DNC to rig the nominating process, but having a third “legitimate” candidate in the race might have made that rigging harder to achieve.

Warren’s false claims of Native American heritage – which she undeniably used to secure a plum spot on the faculty at Harvard – had been revealed long before 2016 and would have become an issue in the nominating process, no question. But by sitting out that race, Warren has given President Donald Trump another two solid years to pound her fraudulent reality as a human being into the public consciousness.

Two years ago, the conventional wisdom was that Warren would immediately become the odd-on favorite to win the 2020 nomination as soon as she announced she was running.  Instead, she has foundered along in single-digits in the preference polls, and most likely will never move any higher because even Democrat voters now consider her to be a walking, always talking ethnic joke.

We’ve seen a similar thing happen to Senator Spartacus from New Jersey. He has long aspired to be seen as the next Barack Obama, and had he done the bold thing that Obama did in 2008 and jumped into the 2016 nominating process despite an incredibly thin record of public service, he might well have been able to legitimately pick up that mantle and seriously challenge the Coughing Crook for the nomination.

Maybe he would have caught fire then like Obama did or maybe he wouldn’t have, but by sitting that one out and waiting another four years, he, like Fauxcahontas, ended up just giving himself another four years to become a walking joke with a self-inflicted nickname. Booker’s problem isn’t that people just don’t know who he really is, like one idiot talking head said the other day, it’s the fact that people hear his name and snicker. He’s done, and might as well go home.

Joe Biden never had a moment and never will. Yes, he’s leading the Democrat polls right now, but let’s all remember that at this point in 2015, Jeb! was strongly leading the GOP polls, and he ended up throwing more than $150 million down a rat hole without winning a single primary or caucus before unceremoniously ending his campaign. The same thing is going to happen to Biden.

This is Biden’s third run at the nomination, and he has three major problems: He’s simply an unattractive candidate, he is a pasty-white man, and he is too damn old to hold the office. I’m sorry – I have nothing against elderly Americans and aspire to become one myself fairly soon – but the office of the presidency is incredibly demanding and Joe Biden is an elderly man. These realities will become more and more apparent to the increasingly-leftist, social-justice-warrior-oriented Democrat voter base in the coming months.

Then there’s New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand – what in the hell is she even doing in this race? That’s the key question she must answer, and she simply has no means of answering it. In a race that already includes liberal senators like Kamala Harris, Spartacus, Fauxcahontas and Amy Klobuchar, why should Democrat voters pick Gillibrand out of that lineup? Gillibrand is currently polling at either 0% or 1%, depending on which poll you look at, and she most likely will never rise more than a point or two above that before getting out of the race.

Meanwhile, she’s humiliating herself with tweets like this one:

My goodness. The scent of desperation literally wafts up from the computer screen.

I’ll have a second post later today detailing the real rising dark horses in this campaign, and their names will definitely surprise you.

That is all.

The Democrats’ Ongoing Fascination With Political Losers

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

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is an actress. – Everyone should watch this video. Trust me, just watch it. It’ll be the best 23 minutes you invest this week. I’m going to keep this pinned at the top of each piece I post for the next few days in order to maximize its – and her – exposure.

Paul Begala is an anti-Semitic sleaze. – The man with the highest forehead on television referred to Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump as “cockroaches” in a clear effort to dehumanize the Jewish couple in the minds of CNN viewers. Adolph Hitler and Joseph Goebbels would have been extremely proud of Mr. Begala, who has made a living for 25 years now by lying on television.

Why is today’s Democrat Party such a steaming cesspit of anti-Semitism? – Speaking of raging anti-Semites, the Deputy Press Secretary for the Bernie Sanders campaign, an illegal alien named Belen Sisa, was forced to apologize yesterday when anti-Semitic posts she made on Facebook on Sunday were made public. Just more proof that Jewish voters who continue voting for Democrats are voting for their own destruction.

I’m betting she learned how to lose Florida. – The Tampa Bay Times had this to say in a tweet yesterday: “Amy Klobuchar revealed she recently spoke with Andrew Gillum about what it takes to win Florida. Here’s what she learned.” I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

What is it about the current crop of Democrats and their ongoing obsession with losers? Irish Bob O’Rourke, the Texas loser to Ted Cruz, after months of dithering around while trying to “find” himself as if he were a 22 year-old snowflake, appears about to finally announce his run for the presidency. Stacey Abrams, who lost the Georgia governor’s race to Brian Kemp despite having massive voter fraud in her favor, is now making noises about doing the same, as we noted here on Monday.

And now we have presidential candidates seeking advice from Gillum, who lost the governor’s race to Republican Ron DeSantis in spite of the sleazebag elections officials in Broward and Palm Beach counties spending a week trying to manufacture enough votes to tip the count in his favor. Gillum is so ethically challenged that he will probably soon find himself on trial on findings by the Florida Ethics Commission that he accepted illegal gifts on many occasions while serving as Mayor of Tallahassee.

Ok, come to think of it, that is all most likely exactly why Klobuchar is seeking Gillum’s advice.  These are Democrats we’re talking about here, after all.

Hey, no offense intended, but these guys are really, really old. – Going back to our precious Robert “Beto” O’Rourke for a moment, despite all the hundreds of millions of dollars in free media hype he has received from every media outlet from CNN to the New York Times to the Washington Post to MSNBC to Oprah (who is a media outlet in and of her own self), Irish Bob finds himself running a poor 5th in the latest Monmouth poll, trailing Creepy Joe Biden, the Commie, Kamala Harris and even Fauxcahontas with just 6% support among registered Democrat voters.

Meanwhile, Creepy Joe Biden comes in at 28%, with the Commie close behind at 26%. This brings me to just a fascinating set of fun facts.

On Election Day 2020, the Commie will be 79 years old, while Creepy Joe will be less than two weeks away from turning 78. If elected and then re-elected, either man would be pushing 90 by the end of a second term in office. This is rather stunning to know, considering that the oldest serving president in our nation’s history, Ronald Reagan, was 77 years old the day he left office after having served two full terms.

Every Democrat in America spent the full eight years of Ronaldus Magnus’s presidency screaming that he was just too darn old for the office. Today, the Creep and the Commie are pulling well over half of Democrat voter support. Meanwhile, the comparative “young guns” in the race, Irish Bob and Harris, are stumbling along with a combined 14%.

Thus, at this point, the Democrat fascination with political losers by the Party’s leadership hasn’t begun translating into actual support among Democrat voters. It seems these voters will require many more months of heavy-duty brainwashing by the Democrat fake news media.

Rest assured, that’s exactly what they will be getting, and they’ll like it. Because, Democrats.

That is all.

Quick, Someone Get These Democrats A Self-Awareness Coach!

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

It’s such a busy day that I thought I’d do some quick takes on the passing scene…

My take on the Academy Awards – Every Oscar went to some guy or woman I’ve never heard of for a movie I haven’t seen and won’t see in the future.

Oh wait: I have heard of Spike Lee, but after his childish display of petulance last night, I wish I hadn’t.

The lack of self-awareness is strong in this one… – Chelsea Clinton complains that her grandmother did not have access to Planned Parenthood.

Oh, my. Which grandmother was she talking about?  Grandmother Rodham, or Grandmother Clint…er, Hubb…er, never mind.

Speaking of lack of self-awareness, it’s a damn shame her parents didn’t possess such foresight. – Alexandria “The Boss” Ocasio-Cortez now says that today’s parents should not have any more kids because of, like, climate change and stuff, and there’s, like, this sort of “scientific consensus” that their lives will be hard, or something.

“Our planet is going to hit disaster if we don’t turn this ship around and so it’s basically like, there’s a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult,” Ocasio-Cortez said while chopping up food in her kitchen during an Instagram live video. “And it does lead, I think, young people to have a legitimate question, you know, ‘Is it okay to still have children?'”

For the record, the “scientific consensus” is that children born today will experience a lower percentage of poverty, lower percentage of hunger and disease and deprivation, and a higher standard of living and longer life expectancy than all prior generations of human beings.

But “The Boss” has her dogmatic fantasies, and as I pointed out this morning, confusing her with things like facts and truth and reality is a fool’s errand.

Why, that’s exactly how tens of millions of Americans feel about Harry Reid! – Harry Reid to CNN this morning:  “Is there anything I think the President Trump is doing right? I just have trouble accepting him as a person and so frankly I don’t see anything he’s doing right.”

By the way, after President Trump punched back at Reid’s taunt, the fake news media bashed Trump because Harry Reid has cancer.

You seriously cannot make this stuff up. Can someone please get these Democrats a self-awareness coach, STAT?

“…now let me tell you about all of these overtly-socialist policy ideas I support, starting with the Green New Deal…” – Here’s what Kamala Harris told a CNN interviewer this morning: “I certainly think that we should all want that our leaders do not engage in name-calling because that’s really just a very low-level of discourse,” says KamalaHarris. “I’m a progressive Democrat. I am a Democrat, I’m a proud Democrat. I’m not a socialist.”  Yeah, sure, uh-huh, right, you betcha.

*sigh*

She’ll just take all that cash behind closed doors. – Also from the news-fakers at CNN – so take it for what it is worth – Fauxcahontas is now ordering her staffers to be quiet about taking money from wealthy donors: “Sen. Elizabeth Warren is laying down a new rule for her presidential campaign: No fundraisers, dinners, receptions or phone calls with wealthy donors.”

Gosh, Judging from that cap, Mr. Evers must be a white supremacist. I’ve been assured that’s a correct assumption by the entirety of our nation’s news media establishment.:
