The Big Money donors are a powerful force in Democrat politics and lately when they get together they can be heard saying, “isn’t there anyone better than this to bring into the race?” Apparently the top three candidates, Biden, Warren and Sanders don’t inspire much confidence in the bag men.
And who can blame them? Warren and Sanders are communists who, among other things, have signed onto healthcare proposals that promise to eliminate all private health insurance. After the debacle of Obamacare even lefties know that the majority of Americans will view this as a deal breaker. In addition, several of these donors represent the Tech Giants and Warren has been vowing to break up Google and Facebook so you can imagine they’re not thrilled with the prospect of paying through the nose for someone who wants to put them out of business.
And then there’s Creepy Uncle Joe. Even if you refuse to believe that his crooked son was obviously cashing in on his father’s influence as Vice President during the Ukraine debacle it would be impossible to miss the fact that Joe is working with less than a full deck of cards at this point. The money men are probably dreading the prospect of a general election debate between Joe the Human Gaffe Machine and the Trump Buzzsaw.
As for the rest of the field of midgets, none of them are polling above three percent in the polls. And the ones that are even slightly less crazy than the front-runners are even lower down than three percent. They’re in the fractional percentage range.
This has spawned panicky calls to draft Hillary Clinton, Michael Bloomberg, Michelle Obama, John Kerry or even Oprah Winfrey.
I fully expect that during this holiday season a call will go out to draft Santa Claus if he can be convinced to renounce Christianity.
This is a delicious moment. With Hillary Clinton denouncing one of the candidates, Tulsi Gabbard, as a Russian agent I can imagine a scenario where the Trump campaign donates money to a Draft Hillary PAC to ensure she gets her chance to do the maximum damage to the whole Democrat establishment.
Seriously, many people thought that the 2020 Democrat field was a sacrificial offering intended to eliminate the old and insane to clear the decks for 2024. If that is the case, mission accomplished. If the general election turns out to be the debacle it’s shaping up to become, the Dems may rethink the whole resistance thing and put a brave face on a “loyal opposition” con.
But what isn’t clear is how much of a coattail effect President Trump can have in the House and Senate. The Republican boobs in those two august bodies have proven themselves almost superhumanly capable of screwing up all of the opportunities that President Trump has presented them with over the course of his term. I only hope that some much less-stupid people step forward and present themselves as allies of the President and thereby benefit from his popularity with real people. Anyway, that’s what I hope. But my fondest wish is that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan go over to the Democrat side and help them with all the special skills they possess. That should be enough to give us a supermajority in both houses of Congress.
