Democrats are not enjoying this

‘Many Democrats haven’t enjoyed the past week’

Is this an understatement? New York Resistance Times newsletter writer David Leonhardt writes:

Many Democrats haven’t enjoyed the past week. It started with the Iowa chaos, and went on to include President Trump’s [triumphant] State of the Union address, his acquittal, his vindictive celebration of that acquittal, and a few polls that showed his approval rating rising.

… “a few polls.” Heh, heh!

Take the pledge

“How should Democrats respond?” Leonhardt asks, trying to pour tea in a train wreck. The East Coast scribbler throws up a word package urging Democrats not to harm themselves (stay away from sharp objects?) … do not harm themselves and — most portentously — “the country” …

by exaggerating the differences between progressives and moderates. … If the primaries don’t turn out as you hope, will you still do everything in your power to deny Trump a second term? 

In other words, soothes David the Leonhardted: full-on Venezuelan socialism is a small price to pay  for defeating the evil Orange Man in the White House. A small price to pay … a small price to pay … a small price …

Stare intently at this image and repeat after me: a small price to pay … small price … price to pay … pay … and pay …

Give batshit crazy a chance

Leonhardt’s memo did not reach the ragin’ cajun James Carville, mastermind behind Bill Clinton’s two victories. Under a headline that reads: “We’re losing our damned minds” (a terrible thing to lose, BTW), Carville lets it fly:

“Do we want to be an ideological cult? Or do we want to have a majoritarian instinct to be a majority party?”

One of former President Bill Clinton’s famous “War Room” political strategists told MSNBC this week that his party — and much of the media — is flirting with disaster if it continues to go “AOC crazy.”

We’re like talking about people voting from jail cells, ” he said. “We’re talking about not having a border. They’re talking about doing away with nuclear energy and fracking. … Her’s another stupid thing: Democrats talking about free college tuition or debt forgiveness. … People all over this country worked their way through school, sent their kids to school, paid off student loans. They don’t want to hear this shit.

I mean, come on, people. Everyday people are out there struggling. We’re trying to get votes in Northern Wisconsin and Western Pennsylvania.”

Not the Saturday Night Massacre. Nixon fired the special prosecutor looking into Watergate. Wore a bow tie. Trump cooperated with special prosector Robert Mueller. The only firings came AFTER acquittal on the Ukrainian phone call. Does anyone think Alexander Vindman had any faith in the President or vice versa? Had Trump lost, Vindman would have stayed, the President would have left. When you take aim at the president, you better bring him down. In any event, the Vindman twins (Trump wanted to make sure he got the right one) are still getting paychecks. They’ve just been reassigned. Get to keep their red staplers.

Joe Biden says he’s “not letting attacks on my family stop me.” Joe, your family is NOT being attacked. And that is not what is stopping you. YOU are being attacked. You were the elected vice president charged with rooting out corruption in Ukraine. You could have started with your no-account son getting a well-paid do-nothing job with an oligarch so corrupt he had to conduct business out of Monaco. Was Eliot Ness’s kid working for Frank Nitti?

Blaska’s Bottom Line: Face it, Joe: You WERE the corruption.

How crazy do YOU think Democrats will get?

      Last week President Trump arguably had the best week of his presidency. So far.

      But I must admit, personally I delight in “schaderfreuden” some looney-toon Lefties. I take some Left-handed guilty pleasure in mocking them. It’s good for my soul. Reality-free-range, free and fair trade, low-flow lockstep Lefty lemmings are fun to watch running around with their little impotent daubers up, their thrombosis throbbing, their hair on fire, tilting against windmills, shouting their bumper-sticker inanities and behaving badly. It shows us regular, normal Americans.

      Their hate for President Trump becomes them.

      Good thing Trump trumps hate.

          Along with the Clintonistas deregulating Wall Street, PRWORA (which doubled grinding poverty amongst society’s most fragile), and the OmniBus Crime Act (which created MASS minority incarceration), that’s been relegated to the Lefty Memory Hole.

          Your reference, however tangential, is not at all helpful to Lefty Inc.

    If Republicans are smart, they’ll expend at least as much effort making sure the Democrat party ends up a spent force the way Labour did in the UK after their last election as they do re-electing Trump, especially since the latter seems pretty much a foregone conclusion. For some time Democrats have exhibited all the classic symptoms of a dangerous ideological cult, not a credible American political party; every time they open their mouths, they propose new ways to undermine our democratic institutions, all in the name of “progressive” ideals. For a long time, with the assiduous help of the MSM, they’ve been able to get away with their charade of respectability, but after the impeachment spectacle and the Iowa debacle, the mask is beginning to slip and even the MSM seems unwilling to enter into a new suicide pact with their long-time partners in crime.

    THERE’S A CERTAIN PART OF THE democrat PARTY THAT WANTS US TO BE A CULT I’m not interested in being in a cult. I’m 75 years old. I’m just not, I’m not a very culty person . . . SOME PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY WANT A REVOLUTION. They want disruption. I don’t know. THEY SCREAM AT PEOPLE AND BULLY PEOPLE. And I don’t know how you win an election: 78 years old, screaming in a microphone about the revolution.

      It took a pack of unattractive anti-constitution un-American hacks to compel old serpent head to emerge from his lair scowling (like only he can) to dress them down. Dems have dabbled in slavery, the KKK, and Jim Crow, so there is a certain continuity to their new obsession with socialism.

    Perhaps that answers the question as to why Obama withheld his support.

    And when Carville has reached his gagging point, and finally spews, ALL Dems should be lookin’ over their shoulder for the men in white suits holding nets.

    Trump’s super power is making the left pull of their masks and reveal the lizard people underneath. This is also probably Trump’s greatest accomplishment. Till Trump drove them to psychosis, they were perusing their agenda in an quiet incremental manner. This was quite successful while the motto of the Republicans was “Go along, to get along.” Trump threw that paradigm into disarray. Earning him the never ending resentment of the left and Republican grifters.

    It has been heartening to see the Democrats validate every reason I left them. I’m also happy they have shown to the entire country what I had an early preview of, in my coastal leftie enclave.

    “ ‘When [voters] go into that ballot box, that’s why they are going to be pulling the lever and Donald Trump is going to win New Hampshire — because we kind of match our pro-business message with his economic success,’ Sununu told ‘America’s Newsroom.’ ”
