I tuned into a few minutes of the second night of the Second Democrat Primary Debate so my impressions are based on the topic under discussion at that point. But I’m sure the rest of it was much the same. I would describe it as something like what you would see and hear if a tornado ripped through an insane asylum. Everywhere you look a virtual kaleidoscope of lunatics would be whizzing by. The rules seem to limit each speech to something like eleven seconds but staccato rebuttals can go on endlessly. And the top lunatic, based on face time seemed to be Kamala Harris. My strongest impression of Harris is that no matter what she is talking about she is always on the verge of bursting into tears. Her voice is almost choked with emotion regardless of whether she is emoting about the uninsured poor or bragging about Cathy Sebelius endorsing her health plan or demanding another rebuttal. She’s like the emotionally unstable little sister in a family that gets her way because her parents are afraid to ever say no to her. They fear that if she didn’t get her way, she’d shake herself to pieces through nervous fragility. Kamala really is the poster child for the Progressive Left. She’s wound up tighter than a spring but all of this nervous energy is just overwrought emotion. There’s nothing else there.
It’s funny how surrounded by this crowd Joe Biden truly is the voice of sanity. Now, granted, it is a dishonest voice. But we’re used to plain old lying from Democrats. It’s just that juxtaposed against Harris, DeBlasio, Booker and Gillibrand, Creepy Uncle Joe seems like a normal guy because he isn’t speaking gibberish.
Based on the audience response and the way the moderators are according rebuttal time Creepy Joe is basically on trial. He’s being tag teamed like a pinata surrounded by a fifth-grade class. And he was starting to seem a little raggedy from the pounding. My guess is that tomorrow he’ll be announced the big loser of the night and Spartacus will be the flavor of the week. And snap polls will show Creepy Joe down to low single digit leads over the second tier of Bernie and Fauxcahontas. But that seems like a replay of the first debate. I’m still betting that a week from now Joe will start heading back up to 30% and the rest of the clown parade will be half of that or much less.
Now when this race gets down to a six-way horse race maybe one of that second tier will break loose. But right now, it’s just a melee of maniacs shouting out nutty stuff that costs tens of trillions of dollars and hoping to last another week. Joe just has to put up with the abuse until the crowd shrinks down to the point where accountability prevents gibberish from being acceptable.
Hail to you Creepy Pinata Joe. Long may you be pummeled by CNN and the Clown Parade. Keep your head above water for a few more months and you’ll get to be the nominee and before you’re eviscerated by President Trump, you’ll get to stuff a billion dollars into your campaign war chest and ride off into the sunset like the Clintons.
