Hitlery gets a spray tan


It's been in the works for a while but on Monday Lotus Flower announced her candidacy for 2ndFWPOTUS and The Grey Lady creamed her pantsuite:

WASHINGTON — Senator Kamala Harris, the California Democrat and barrier-breaking prosecutor who became the second black woman to serve in the United States Senate, declared her candidacy for president on Monday, joining an increasingly crowded and diverse field in what promises to be a wide-open nomination process.

Reading between the lines what the NYTimes is saying here is that "what promises to be a wide-open nomination process" is just another broken promise because we've already decided who the nominee is going to be and her name is Kamala Harris. The Atlantic gave Kamala the green light in October of 2018 and The Jacobin called it in August of 2017(!!!) and on MLK Day 2019 it became official thus ending the primary battles and the entire 2020 election (if you live in the UK).

There is no doubt, even among her opponents, about her strength of character, her will to succeed, and her ability to fight. The only question for her now is can she whip up crowds, generating the kind of fervour that Sanders did in the 2016 primaries? On the evidence so far she almost certainly can. She has a clear message, the CV for the job, and the X-factor that Hillary Clinton did not.

And that X-factor is what? As far as I can tell its a $25 spray tan because in so many other aspects - Lawyer, Political Lifer, Establishment Shill, Programmed Speaker, Risk Averse, Opportunist - there's not a dime's worth of difference between KH and HRC. The general "thinking" in the #FakeNews and political class is that Senator Harris can reestablish "the Obama coalition" and retake the the White House in a sequel titled "Hope Part Deux" but I have my doubts that the Progressive hoard can capture lightning in a bottle a second time. They sort of blew their load with The One and #2 looks brown and smelly to anyone not wearing rose colored (pinkish) glasses. Besides her "color" there's nothing separating Kamala from Kristen or Elisabeth or any other of fembots the Democrats are proposing to inflict on the USA and none of these gals can out "woman" The Ãœberfrau. So it's all about color and this is where the Democrats have a glaring, self inflicted, blind spot which will become painfully apparent to Kamala Harris and her supporters as the primary season unfolds in Iowa and New Hampshire and that is this: Though it's true that Obama was "America's First Black President" (FBPOTUS) it is also true that he was, at the same time, our 44th White President and that was a HUGE unspoken component of his winning coalition - what is now called The Obama Coalition. I know it's not fair. I know it's a horrible thing to say. I know it's "racist" to the minds of those who deny this simple fact of biology and cultural upbringing and education. The fact remains that voters - white, racist, deplorable voters felt comfortable casting a ballot for Barack because he was White and they knew it because they saw it in the man. It's why lily white liberals loved him in a way they could never love Jesse Jackson or John Lewis or Clarence Thomas or Alan Keys (if you want to get really weird). It can't be replicated ever again. The only candidate that could challenge DJT in 2020 is a man's man like JFK or LBJ and there are no more men like that in the Democrat party so... they're gonna lose.

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work."

I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months viewershi…

The Democracy Quirk

Let it be said that Politico is one of the most worthless web sites with clout on the internet - it's like the Washington Post after a night of hard drinking in the Georgetown bars that passed out on a friends couch. Predictable and stupid at the same time - Also, the editors appear to despise democracy as a political science and as practiced here in the USA. Their latest "explanation" for the Trump phenomenon takes aim at the voters and their knowing ignorance which can be easily explained by the Dunning-Kruger Effect. The article written by shrink/educator David Dunning illuminates a big, glaring problem in any democracy, and that is, "we all run the risk of being too ill-informed to notice when our own favored candidates or national leaders make catastrophic misjudgments." Shit, now you tell us, for surely this is not a problem unique to 2016 and probably was in effect in 2000 and 1980 and 1968 and so on...
But as a psychologist who has studied human behavi…

Running Fence 2

You probably know that the Congress (specifically the Senate) and the POTUS are at loggerheads over Federal funding for the Big Beautiful Wall to be built along the US southern boarder. The reasons for this impasse are long and complex so a quick review of how we got here might be in order.

The Elvis from Queens glided down the escalator at Trump Tower (corner of 57th & 5th) and declared to America and the World that he intended to build A Great Wall across the southern boarder when he became POTUS because this alternate speech was never going to happen (KOTCB Alternate Universe 06/15/2015)A few weeks later candidate Trump was presented with a big fat brick of pain and suffering that served as the cornerstone of his campaign (KOTCB Dirty Sanchez)The physical Wall served as a curative slap in the face of the DC establishment who had, over the years, constructed an elaborate Folly Wall in place of the real thing (KOTCB Decius drops the mic)The idea of the Big Beautiful Wall began to…
