There is so many Democrats running for the nomination it's hard to notice when they drop out. It's like raking leaves. They seem to just keep falling out of the trees. Even that crazy woman from the hamlet of Chappaqua NY claims "she is being urged by many, many, many people to run in 2020." But for now, Joe Biden is the perceived front-runner, and that excites no one, not even his wife. He is the non-threatening choice, known to us on the right as Obama's Court Jester. And according to an article in the New York Times, the "movers and shakers" in the Democrat party are having second thoughts about Uncle Joe.
"Since the last debate, just anecdotally, I've had five or six people ask me: 'Is there anybody else?'" said Leah Daughtry, a longtime Democrat who has run two of the party's recent conventions."The "anxious" Democratic establishment reportedly think Lizzy Warren isn't "viable" in a general election because she comes off as a crazy commie college professor. They're probably also more afraid of Bernie winning than losing. It bothers them that Mayor Pete is leading in Iowa, and that the dem's plantation black voters aren't high on voting for a little white fudgepacker, especially one from a mostly white state in the midwest. They've found Biden's debate performances "lackluster" and they haven't even seen his latest town hall.
Former Senator and Secretary of State John Kerry (he fought in Vietnam you know) has "wondered aloud" if he should've run again. He must've "wondered aloud" in an empty room because if he'd "wondered" this within earshot of anyone alive in 2004, he would've heard a reflexive "hell no."
Eric Holder, the former attorney general, was apparently considering a "last-minute" entry but he admits it's too late now. He's right. There's never a good time for this crooked bastard's presidential campaign. He should be in prison.
There was talk yesterday of Deval Patrick, the long forgotten former Massachusetts governor, entering the race. He's another answer to a question no one's asked. Spartacus Booker doesn't need an understudy for the role of unqualified, bald brother who loves them some Wall Street money. And someone for some reason known only to them convinced Michael Bloomberg to run for president. He's likely going to spend a lot of money to lose like a common Julio Castro. Unless public humiliation is his jam, he might find it cheaper to just pay Warren's wealth tax and go play golf.
Obama's boy David Axelrod explained the party's current dilemma:
"With Trump looming, there is genuine concern that the horse many have bet on may be pulling up lame and the horse who has sprinted out front may not be able to win."Wait... did Axlrod just call Sen. Lizzy a horse?? Oh My.
The "safe" candidate is not always the best. But the establishment has already taken their chosen candidate out of his original packaging. They can't return him now. Pass the popcorn.......
