The impeachment hoax has failed. Next up: Trump is crazy, too crazy to be President. Nancy Pelosi signaled this she said Wednesday that “he looked to me like he was a little sedated” during the State of the Union address. Leftist media hack Eric Boehlert, formerly of Media Matters. Salon, and Rolling Stone, tweeted Thursday: “in light of insane speech today, it’s absolutely astonishing that over last 3 years DC press has refused to address Trump’s mental health as legit news story it’s the third rail of American journalism.” Sure it is, Eric. The press has always given Trump the benefit of the doubt in every way, hasn’t it? Just who’s crazy here? Besides Eric Boehlert, we could start with the Democratic presidential candidates.
Joe Biden is always good for laughs, but there isn’t really any joke: he’s serious. Last August, he was asked by a college student in Iowa how many genders there were. “There are at least three,” he answered, and when she asked him to explain, he shot back: “Don’t play games with me, kid.”
Three genders. Well, at least old Joe is saner than those who insist there are seventy-three genders, or whatever the number is this week.
Joe has been just as testy on numerous other occasions, hardly a winning strategy for someone who is trying to ingratiate himself with voters. When another Iowa voter challenged him about his son Hunter’s highly questionable dealings in Ukraine, he grew increasingly agitated and finally responded heatedly to the portly questioner, “Look, Fat, look, here’s the deal…”
Dotty old Joe has also been given to nostalgic ramblings, as when he said: “And by the way, you know, I sit on the stand, and it’d get hot. I gotta lotta, I got hairy legs, that turn, that, that, that, that, that, that turn, uh, uh, um, blond in the sun. And the kids used to come up and reach into the pool and rub my leg down so it was straight and then watch the hair, mmm, come, come back up again. So I learned about roaches. I learned about kids jumping on my lap. And I’ve loved kids jumping on my lap.”
Right. Time to back away slowly, while smiling reassuringly at the candidate.
Amid all the controversy over who exactly won the Iowa caucus, no one has pondered whether Biden finished far back in the pack, instead of winning as expected, because he has on numerous occasions shown Iowa voters that he is stone-cold crazy.
Then there is Bernie Sanders, who really did win in Iowa, but is too far to the Left even for the Democrats, or at least wants to accomplish what they want to accomplish more quickly than they do. The Democratic National Committee (DNC) doesn’t want Bernie to be the nominee, and so made a spectacularly inept attempt to steal Iowa away from him.
It’s easy to understand why the DNC hates and fears Sanders. In 1988, he and his new wife spent ten days in the Soviet Union on what he called “a very strange honeymoon.” According to the Washington Post, “he was enthralled with the hospitality and the lessons that could be brought home.”
In February 2019, video surfaced of Sanders in 1985 praising Fidel Castro in terms that sound very much like his political platform as a candidate for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination: “Way back in—what was it?—1961, they invaded Cuba, and everybody was totally convinced that Castro was the worst guy in the world and all of the Cuban people were going to rise up in rebellion against Fidel Castro. They forgot that he educated their kids, gave their kids health care, totally transformed the society.” I thought Obama already did that here, but Bernie will certainly finish the job.
So we have the crazy man and the Communist. But surely the other Democrats are more reasonable, no? No. We have Elizabeth Warren, who pretended to be an American Indian for decades and recently promised that she would have a “young trans person” select her Secretary of Education. It used to be that adults would teach and children would learn, but that is so pre-Greta Thunberg. In any case, why this noble squaw isn’t planning to have a young trans Native American vet her Education Secretary, she did not explain.
Then there is Pete Buttigieg, who, judging from the chicanery pulled off on his behalf to make it seem as if he had won in Iowa, seems to be the Clintons’ choice. Buttigieg tweeted Friday an image of himself accompanied by one of his portentous statements: “The Shape of Our Democracy Is the Issue That Affects Every Other Issue.”
What does that mean? Nothing at all, of course. But maybe that’s preferable to lunatic ramblings, Communism, and relentless pandering to minorities. In any case, there are no good or sane choices. This, ladies and gentlemen, is your Democrat Party.
