We’re bucked

Spike the Terrorist Deer is back, and he brought his girlfriend with him.

They laughed at Paul Revere, too.

But Field Marshal Turkish von Turkenstein (commander, 1st Feline Home Defense Force) was right. They’re out there, and not even an augmented Wall will stop ’em.

Speaking of spooked deer, Kamala Harris apparently hit Smilin’ Joe with The Big Light last night, and by all accounts I’ve read this morning he did not handle it well, not one itty-bitty bit.

This is the thing that makes me nervous about Smilin’ Joe. He’s old, and he’s white, and like Gore, Kerry and The Hilldebeast before him, he believes it is His Turn, and that all these other people are horning in on his act.

“G’wan, get away from me, kid, y’bodda me.”

Maybe he gets the nomination. Maybe he even wins. I don’t have a feel for the deal yet.

But he looked an awful lot like Spike in that spotlight last night.

    It was a low blow and he definitely buckled.

    I agree with you on Uncle Joe. His “turn” has come and gone. Why can’t these guys take a back seat and help/advise/raise-funds-for the younger, fresher candidates?
    I think Harris or Booker would be just fine and hope that they might inspire the large numbers of voters who sat out 2016 because Billary wasn’t Obama to get off their a– and vote to keep Don the Con from another term.

    I read some summaries and highlights of last night;’s debate with my coffee this morning. I’m glad Harris too the opportunity to stand out. Low blows are what it will take to beat a con man that hires people like roger stone. It stinks that the political game is played that way; it is the reality. The Dems, armed with the facts, need to get real comfy in the muddy water. Joe simply can’t do it. I don’t just want the dumpster to get defeated. I want to see him get his ass publicly whupped, preferably by a woman. Then he can slink from the white house to NYC to lawyer up for his coming indictments.

    That buck has some big antler bases. I think you will have to change his name this fall.

      Old Joe didn’t put up much of a fight and he looked really rattled at the end. Not a good sign for someone to go up against the Dumpster when it gets down and dirty. Kamela certainly showed she is the one willing to put on the brass knuckles in this fight. That’s going to be important.

      Also, my guess is that in today’s “woke” environment, if he had said “Can the crap. That happened forty years ago. Get over it” such a response would have gone over like a lead balloon (and I’m close to paraphrasing my significantly-left-of-yours-truly better half with that quote).

      The public has a short attention span. Any Dem attempts to form a circular firing squad in order to thin the candidate herd needs to stop in time for the masses to forget it prior to the election. My fear is a replay of what Michael Moore called “Tired Democrats” back in 2016 if folks go negative on each other.

        Edward-Issac Dovere over to The Atlantic says Smilin’ Joe is in stroll mode while everyone else is running. Like me, he seems to think the Biden campaign is drunk on its own sense of inevitability.

        Who stayed home last go-round because The Hilldebeast proved uninspiring? The Donks need to lasso some of those sluggards, give them a reason to participate in their own governance again.

    One thing is certain. There won’t be the Biden/Harris ticket I predicted. But then again, Kennedy despised LBJ yet put him on the ticket to get them there southern votes. Joe the Biden really did look lame. He waited until today to correct history but dude…this is 2019 and your gaff is in stone now.

    • Pat O'Brien Says:

      Word. The boy is yesterday’s stale toast. We need someone to get progressives riled up and pissed off. The issues demand it. The important ones, like climate change, can’t wait for four more years of moderation and inaction. That’s all Joe offers.
      I can’t remember the source of this comment but it isn’t mine.
      “I don’t want a revolution; I just want to fire them all.”

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      Smilin’ Joe should’ve fought it out with The Hilldebeast for the nomination. Maybe then … but probably not.

      We were gonna get this shit sammich sooner or later. And maybe, just maybe, we’ll find out down the road that we were lucky to get it served to us by such a stupid, corrupt cluster of knucklefuckers. We might not even have to eat the whole thing.

    • khal spencer Says:

      I don’t know if riling up Progressives while ignoring everyone else is a winning idea. I still rather sadly recall the ’72 race. Nixon won 49 states.

      The other day, David Brooks worried about this:

      “According to a recent Gallup poll, 35 percent of Americans call themselves conservative, 35 percent call themselves moderate and 26 percent call themselves liberal. The candidates at the debates this week fall mostly within the 26 percent. The party seems to think it can win without any of the 35 percent of us in the moderate camp, the ones who actually delivered the 2018 midterm win.”

    Warren/Harris would be my ticket. Two terms for Liz followed by two for Harris sounds good to me. What does that say about me?

    Jeebus. B Lester done in by an I Pad virtual keyboard!
