CHARLOTTE, NC – To paraphrase Forrest Gump, “Crazy is as crazy does.” As we watch the increasingly frantic anti-Trump antics on Capitol Hill, we can clearly see that the donkeys ruling the house couldn’t be any crazier. But come this time next year, the Democrats will stop singing their “Impeachment Donkey Serenade” as an already exhausting Campaign 2020 finally concludes.
At that point, they’ll take an entire day off from making total and complete asses of themselves to pull the predictable levers on their one-armed bandit voting machines. Later that evening, they’ll watch their friends at CNN to see whether their four-year anti-Trump fake national crisis gamble actually paid off.
Come to think about it, for the Dems to only take one day off would be something short of a miracle.
Truth be told, they haven’t done a day’s honest work for their constituents in three years. So why not go for four and make it a clean sweep?
Unless things change drastically – (and why should they?) – their slot machines are going to come up lemons once again. Which proves once and for all that politics in Washington today is Dumb and Dumber: Parts Two Through Twenty.
The Evil Party never learns
If ever there was a candidate more ripe for the picking than Donald Trump, the history books have yet to find him (or her). The media’s crack teams of investigative journalists have uncovered more dud bombshell stories than the UN found in Saddam Hussein’s WMD arsenal. True to their logo, the Democrats have managed to exhume every jackass candidate possible against their opposition.
The last presidential election wasn’t even a classic case of “hold your nose and pick the lesser of two evils.” Rather it was more like “Tweetie (Trump) besting Sylvester (Clinton).”
Examples of “progressive” buffoonery
In an article written for The Federalist last March, George S. Bardmesser summed the incoming Campaign 2020 election nicely.
“…every time one of these newly minted Democratic ‘stars’ opens their mouth, the same thought goes through my mind: Thank God for Trump. (President) Trump is my last line of defense. (President) Trump is the only thing that stands between me and these hallucinogenic socialist nut jobs. Trump is what’s keeping chaos and left-wing insanity at bay.”
Bardmesser is hardly alone, though to listen to the Democrats and their liberal media allies no one would ever know it. Forget about the issues (are there any?) and just look at the best the Democrats can offer. You soon discover their plans seem to come from so-called intellectuals that remind you of the bizarre rejects inhabiting the barroom scene in the original Star Wars.
Let’s begin with the quartet of women who have become Nancy Pelosi’s worst nightmare. “The Squad.”
Democrats’ Crazy: Pelosi’s “Odd Squad”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, more popularly known as “AOC,” became, at 27-years of age the youngest woman ever elected to Congress. Unsurprisingly, this clueless millennial is a member in good standing of the Democratic Socialists of America. Along with her fellow Democrat from Massachusetts, Sen. Ed Markey, AOC introduced the Green New Deal Resolution. That’s her sweeping, costly proposal to combat the global climate crisis and poverty in the US. As for funding? Hand it over.
Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, who was first elected to the House last year, is also the first Palestinian-American woman to serve in Congress. Tlaib has embraced progressive ideas like Medicare for All, a $15 dollar minimum wage, debt-free college. She has also called for abolishing ICE. Welcome to Open Borders!
Minnesota’s Ilhan Omar is the first Somali-American member of Congress. Omar and Tlaib are now the first two Muslim women ever elected to Congress. The press always follows the statistical horse race, never the qualifications of their favorite candidates, which are generally nil. Omar ran with the support of the so-called Justice Democrats, the same progressive group that helped bring Ocasio-Cortez into politics. She’s particularly controversial due to her bizarre views on Israel. She described them to CNN, gushing that it was “exciting to be sparking debate.”
As the first black congresswoman to represent Massachusetts, Ayanna Pressley constantly speaks out about poor conditions for detained migrants and the growing humanitarian crisis on the southern border. She got on this track firmly after touring Texas border facilities with other Democratic lawmakers. Problematically, many of her American constituents live in poor conditions, too. But apparently, those illegal aliens are more important to Pressley than those who voted for her.
Democrats’ Crazy sending smoke signals
Speaking of women and “firsts,” the Democrats are also proud of so-called Native-American presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren.
Aka “Fauxahontas, she not only wants reparations for African-Americans. She wants them for Native-Americans as well, and says so without reservation.
Off to Uncle Bernie’s Socialist Farm. And Joe Biden’s touchy-feely Funny Farm
Then we come to the male side of the ledger where we find the darling of the Millennial Generation, Bernie Sanders. As George Bardmesser points out
“This grumpy near-octogenarian ‘public service’ millionaire with three mansions is running for the presidency of the wrong country. All his best ideas have already been put into practice––in Venezuela. Bernie doesn’t need to pretend he is a complete crank; he is a complete crank.”
Want more? How about the touchy-feely gaffe-master himself, former Vice President Joe Biden who can thank Sanders for making his age a moot point.
As Bardmesser points out, “It feels like (Biden’s) been running for president in every election since Eisenhower.”
By comparison, the “less than magnificent seven” listed above actually makes Nancy Pelosi appear reasonable.
Summing up the totally awesome Democrats’ Crazy competitors
Believe it or not, these are the Democrat’s finest competition against an incumbent who has more than his own share of personality flaws despite his uncanny ability to make the country function to the benefit of most Americans.
If it wasn’t so sad, it would make for a great situation comedy, and that’s before we even get to the controversies that have been wrapped up and disguised as legitimate issues.
As George Bardmesser sees it,
“Democrats don’t just own crazy anymore; Democrats left crazy in their rearview mirror months ago.”
