Is Ultimate Democratic Candidate Not Yet On the Ballot?

Joe Biden is crashing. Bernie and Lizzie are unelectable. So who is there? No one else seems to be getting any traction, although there are still some clinging to the hope that they will catch fire somehow and win the hearts of the Democratic electorate. Super Tuesday is usually the day when a clear frontrunner starts to distance himself or herself from the pack. This year it will be more about IF there will be a clear frontrunner coming out of the current field. 

The more the impeachment circus drags on, the more negative information has been coming out about Joe Biden and all the shady dealings he had concerning his family and the millions of dollars they have amassed during all these years of Joe’s public service. So much so that even the MSM has been forced to at least report on the allegations. If the DNC Politburo decides that they can no longer put their anointed candidate on the ballot, they may permit the networks to do their jobs.

If Biden falls, who is left? Bernie Sanders scares the Party Establishment so much they are already planting stories about how crazy this guy is. They even trotted out their heroin, Hillary Clinton, to take a pot shot at him and slink back into the woods. Their fear of Bernie is so intense that they have been trying desperately to divert any serious investigation into the Bidens when in saner times a candidate s damaged as Biden would have been quietly convinced to recuse himself under whatever pretense he chose. 

The elephant in the room right now is Michael Bloomberg. His primary qualification is money. Not money he was able to raise from people who support him, but his own. He is little more than a monkey wrench in the Primary process right now because while he may see himself in as some leftist Donald Trump candidate, he does not have anywhere near the populist support has. His modest rise in the polls has little to do with anything he is bringing to the table but more to do with his uncontested ads running in states where the other candidates have not yet started campaigning in earnest.

All this could lead to what many Democrats fear most-a a brokered Convention. This summer’s gathering in Milwaulkee could be fun for those of us looking in. Stay tuned.

Are You Tired of Impeachment Yet?

Watching Democratic lawmakers walking over to the Senate to deliver the articles of impeachment formally, I couldn’t help but be reminded of days gone by when Ringling Brothers would come to town. There would be news coverage of the animals filing into the Lincoln Tunnel on the way to Madison Square Garden for a spectacular exhibition. The difference between this caravan and the legislators processing through the Capitol Rotunda is that the former was supposed to culminate in a circus. At the same time, the latter evolved into one due to Democratic partisan bumbling and incompetence. Or perhaps that is what we are supposed to think. 

Nancy Pelosi looks like a fool right now, and although she may be any things, the Speaker is no fool. This impeachment farce may seem like an exercise in futility since the chances of conviction in the Senate are roughly equivalent to winning the Powerball and the Megaball in the same week. Could there be something else at play here? Are the powers that be in the Democratic Party intentionally trying to sideline Warren and Sanders in favor Of Joe Biden?

Stay tuned

Sleepy Joe Does It Again

I had to listen it again on my computer because I wasn’t sure I heard it right the first time. Joe Biden actually said that “when it comes to decisions, the details don’t matter. It is somewhat disconcerting that someone who wants to be leader of the Free World thinks that details should not inform decisions. It does explain, however, how he manages to be on the wrong side of just about every foreign policy decision for the past 30 years. The same approach to decision making among his supporters also helps to explain why he still has any although the rather sad quality of the current alternatives to his candidacy.

It does beg the question, however, that if the details don’t matter then what does? How do you make decisions? Flip a coin? Draw lots? Tarot Cards? Eeney, meeny, miny mo? The media keeps giving this guy a pass but frankly the thought of this buffoon in the oval office is just scary.

I used to think that no one could ever make Jimmy Carter look good by comparison and then along came Obama. The only thing I liked about Obama was that he stayed in office long enough to keep crazy Uncle Joe out. Who knew that the Democratic Party would be in such disarray that the likes of Joe Biden is being touted as the one safe choice that can save the party from itself.
