The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg

If I were a Democrat right now, I would be asking myself, 'how did we get to the point where our only choices are an unreconstructed Marxist and a drooling buffoon?'

Well, I think it's kind of like how they pick juries. The jury selection process is not so much a question of the prosecution and the defense trying to agree on who would be the best jurors, but rather, they start out with a large jury pool and they start tossing out the ones they don't like, for whatever reason. And whoever is left, that's who gets to be on the jury.

Yes, our election process works the same way.

Kind of frightening, isn't it?

So let's take a look at the discarded jury pool rejects:

Amy Klobuchar -- I don't think anyone could figure out why she was in the race to begin with.

Beto O'Rourke -- Classic case of peaking too soon. The novelty of his fake Hispanic schtick wore thin before the election season ever really got started. The fact that he blew through a crap ton of money on a fruitless race against Ted Cruz probably didn't help, either.

Andrew Yang -- Even though I didn't agree with pretty much anything he said, of all the Democrat candidates, Yang struck me as a guy I wouldn't mind sitting down and having a beer with. In other words, he seemed like a normal guy. That's a big handicap in today's Democrat Party.

Pete Buttigieg -- The dirty little secret here is that flaunting his gayness cost him bigly. Yes, I know the Democrats pride themselves on their tolerance and diversity, and only evil Rethuglicans would refuse to vote for a guy only because he's light in the loafers, but the Democrats don't like to admit that homosexuality is the bridge too far for many black and Hispanic voters. The number of votes from minorities Pete received was near zero. Plus, the other thing he liked to flaunt was his Christianity, which anyone could've told him is political suicide in a party where godless, Christ-hating progressives constitute a major voting bloc.

Mike Bloomberg -- I don't think anybody could figure out what to do with mini-Mike. When he was mayor of NYC, he was a Republican who wasn't really a Republican, but now, he's a Democrat who isn't really a Democrat. Also, Trump labeling him 'mini-Mike' hurt him a lot more than you might think. It's one of those nicknames that sticks no matter what, and I believe that even many Democrats got a chuckle out of it in the voting booth as they pulled the lever for someone else.

Elizabeth Warren -- Another 'why is she even here?' candidate. She was sort of Bernie lite, but with Bernie in the race, why would any self-respecting progressive vote for a watered down commie when they could vote for an actual, crazy-ass commie? Plus, I think a lot of men looked at her and thought, 'Do I really want the country to be run by a bossy librarian?' Nancy Pelosi said that there was an 'element of misogyny' in Warren's loss, but she knows that it's mainly Democrats that vote in Democratic primaries, right?

...and so this is why, after all of the weeding-out process is completed, the last men left standing are an unreconstructed Marxist and a drooling buffoon.
