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!!!!!!!”
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.
