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come as a huge surprise to Dianne Feinstein – of the 1990s, told us in his very next breath that, since that ban was repealed in 2006, “150 million Americans” have been mowed down on our streets by gun violence (the actual number is about 1/1000th of that).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.

Donna Brazile Discovers That Life As The Fredo Corleone Of Clinton World Is Hard

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Accused Hollywood pedophile actor Kevin Spacey might have been feeling friendless in recent days, but it turns out one writer who is famous for something or other – it’s been so long since he did anything of note it’s hard to remember what – is still on board the Spacey Train.  Gay Talese, who Vanity Fair describes as a “veteran journalist and author”, told the magazine on Tuesday that “I would like to talk to Kevin Spacey.  I feel so sad, and I hate that actor that ruined this guy’s career. So, OK, it happened 10 years ago … Jesus, suck it up once in a while!”  Oh, my, so many metaphors and puns one could use here in response to that particular passage, but let’s just exercise a little discretion and move along.
  • Speaking of public figures who are probably feeling friendless these days, let’s talk about Donna Brazile, who finds herself on the outs with pretty much everyone she used to consider a friendly face after becoming the first Clinton shill to break the media-enforced code of silence about Clinton wrongdoing.  Ms. Brazile, who is now basically the Fredo Corleone of the Clinton crime world, found herself on the CBS morning program on Tuesday, being interviewed by longtime fake news host Charlie Rose, the vapid Norah O’Donnell and Gayle King, who vacations with the Obamas, for crying out loud.  The former DNC Chairman probably hoped that her status as a lifelong Democrat party hack would get her the same sort of softball treatment this trio of fake journalists invariably toss out to their other Democrat clients, especially since she came into the interview with an obvious plan to start walking back her book’s claims that the Party’s nominating process had been rigged against Bernie Sanders.
  • Boy, was she surprised.  The fake hosts called her “bitter” and “angry” – words that if uttered towards a black woman by a conservative would have had these same fake journalists leveling charges of racism – and questioned Brazile’s honesty at several points in the interview.  Not that there’s anything bad about questioning the honesty of a shameless Clinton/Obama shill – lying for those people has been Brazile’s job for the last quarter century.  but the hostile tone of the questioning had to be startling for someone who has been used to being treated with kid gloves by fake interviewers for all these years.  Like Fredo, Brazile is finding out the hard way that, once you go against the family, there is no going back.
  • Another interesting tidbit we discovered when Brazile’s book was released on Tuesday is that she dedicated the tome to, among others, murdered DNC IT staffer Seth Rich. Now, think about this for a moment. The DNC’s official line on Seth Rich is that he was just a low-level staffer who really didn’t have any important responsibilities there. The DNC has viciously attacked anyone who has questioned the DC police line that Rich’s killing was a “robbery gone bad”, even though absolutely nothing was stolen from his person.
  • The Rich killing also took place on July 16, 2016, well before Ms. Brazile was called in to take over the DNC chairmanship on a temporary basis as the DNC Convention began later that month.  Yet she dedicates her book to him?  Did she even know him?  No wonder all the Clinton shills in the fake news media have been attacking her with a vengeance since Politico published the first excerpts from her book last Friday.
  • The reality is that Ms. Brazile, with the publication of a book that reveals vast wrongdoing by the Clintons and the DNC, finds herself in essentially the same position as actor Corey Feldman, who has recently re-started his campaign to expose Hollywood’s pedophile mafia.  Both have made the decision to go after people who have done wrong, and now find themselves faced with institutional pushback from not only former colleagues in their profession, but also a powerful news media that has spent decades protecting the very people they are attempting to expose.
  • Mr. Feldman first went after these people in 2013, but then got cold feet when he probably correctly began to fear for his safety.  He has now found renewed courage from the reaction to scandal surrounding Harvey Weinstein and Spacey, and has gotten the LA police involved for the first time.  He has also raised enough money to hire some personal security, which no doubt helps.
  • Ms. Brazile is showing signs of a similar case of cold feet, as the Clinton capo regimes in politics and the fake news media form up to attack her character.  Let’s hope she doesn’t find herself the victim of a “robbery gone bad” anytime soon.  A little personal security might be in order for her as well.

Just another day in the booming private security industry America.

That is all.
