Is Midwest nice a political force?
Who will defend our super-sized Squishees?
The talking heads were saying it all night Tuesday (02-11-2020) from New Hampshire. Did you ever imagine that Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren’s vote totals would be short of Amy Klobuchar’s numbers? It’s going to be that kind of Presidential campaign year. Expect the unexpected.
Poor old Joe got run through the wringer and not just on Fox for leaving the scene of the accident for his electoral bunker in South Carolina. Given his crash and fifth-place burn in the snowy Yankee woods it was the best option he had — to pivot and pander like crazy for the black vote in the birthplace of the Confederacy. Then again, South Carolina, 27% black, does not look like America (12% black), either. (Nothing looks like America except a Las Vegas convenience store.)
Pandering is not a good look
Turns out that boasting electability as a virtue requires actually winning an election. (There’s always a catch.) Joe’s still trying to ride coattails that left the White House 3½ years ago and seems farther away from endorsing his old running mate than ever, now that the buzzards are circling.
Face it: Joni Ernst was correct. The Burisma Bidens were the first casualty of the Schiff and Nancy Show. The Bidens managed to monetize the vice presidency for millions of dollars and America sees it clear as day. Hillary must be green with envy.
So last night (02-11-2020) Old Joe was cozening up to the supposedly monolithic Black Voter in the Palmetto State, furiously pandering like a barroom tap dancer to Black Bart’s blazing six shooter. Singing some Harriet Tubman. Race carding his own party in a state that voted for Donald Trump and put a conservative black Republican in the U.S. Senate.
The heads talking into the Werkes’ b&w Philco Tuesday were jabbering about the inevitability of Bernie versus the Billionaire and wouldn’t THAT be a debate! As for Mayor Pete (we’re still too lazy to look up the spelling of his last name), the guy is making the indentured servants nostalgic for Martin O’Malley. Mayor Pete has been described as a political bot — a walking, more-or-less human Alexa with all the answers even if we keep asking the wrong questions.
Our Lady of the Snow
Amy Klobuchar is said to have no organization and no money to survive Super Tuesday but here is the thing — she’s got that winning smile and that pluck!
Amy’s mother is from Milwaukee! Gramps took Granny’s lunch bucket down to the iron mines in the Mesabi Range!
Oh, Mister Grant!
The lady from the Twin Cities should toss her tam o’shanter into the air. She’s got PLUCK! Mr. Grant may not have liked Pluck but Murray sure had a crush on it! Mebbe that’s why she calls it “Grit!” instead of Pluck!
Just a strange feeling that Democrats somehow will find their way to plucky Mizz Grit after tiring of Bernie’s post-doctoral Marxism lectures and the little mayor’s plastic ono band.
As for Michael Bloomberg, what is there behind all the billion$? The man has no program, no personality, no personal following. He’s not a disrupter like Bernie and The Donald; he’s not soothing warm milk at tuck-me into bedtime like Our Mizz Amy. Lack’s Pistol Pete’s gay gene or any trace of melanin. He’s already apologizing for being an effective mayor of Gotham.
What’s left is just oodles and scads of sweaty money, ostentatiously trying to buy up all the property on Pennsylvania Avenue. To do what, other than beat Trump and confiscate our super-sized Kwik-E-Mart Squishees?
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Bloomberg IS doing to the Democrat(ic) party what Reagan did to Gorbachev, spend the Soviet Union into dissolution, into multiple third parties warring each other, not Republicans.
