Rap my knuckles, will you!
Early in the 2020 presidential campaign, Madison progressives had a schoolyard crush on Elizabeth Warren. Appeared with Tammy Baldwin here in town at one of Lindsay Lee’s coffee shops.
The rest of the country? Meh.
Sen. Warren’s candidacy went nowhere because — get your hackles up, my progressive … acquaintances ! — because the woman is a hectoring, finger-wagging shrew. The school ‘marm from hell. Nurse Ratched with a 256-point Plan for Rendering the Nation Catatonic. Except if she were President, we wouldn’t mouth the Thorazine she fed Jack Nicholson and the Chief. We’d ask for seconds.
Q. Where else can you get trenchant political commentary like this?
A. Only at Blaska Policy Werkes! (In a hurry? Try our drive-thru lane!)
After Time magazine named Elon Musk their multi-billionaire of the year, the socialist senator from Massachusetts rapped her ruler:
“Let’s change the rigged tax code so The Person of the Year will actually pay taxes and stop freeloading off everyone else.”
As if the Castro brothers put electric cars on the road and privatized space travel! Senate Democrats are so disorganized they make Biden’s Kabul bug-out look as well choreographed as a Fred Astaire dance routine. Some of us would say it’s the party of free stuff what’s doing the freeloadin’.
The average corporate executive fearful of losing his severance buyout would mealy mouth his way in supplication to the woman’s Woke hysterics. Words like “equity,” and “inclusion” would tumble from his liver lips.
Not the Musk man! He returned Musk-et fire: “If you opened your eyes for two seconds, you would realize I will pay more taxes than any American in history this year.” Forbes estimates $8.3 Billion; Bloomberg says $10 Billion. Musk then dropped this bunker buster:
“You remind me of when I was a kid and my friend’s angry Mom would just randomly yell at everyone for no reason. Please don’t call the manager on me, Senator Karen.”
For good measure, Musk pulled the pin on some on-target political commentary: “Don’t spend it all at once … oh wait! You did already!”
So stealing this: Three things owned by Elon Musk: Tesla; Space X, and Elizabeth Warren.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: “President Elon Musk,” anyone? UPDATE: Oops! Musk was born in South Africa; ineligible to be President of the USA.
