Now then: This just in (well, Sunday, actually) from RedState’s Bonchie: The Democrat 2024 civil war is heating up. Excerpt:
The Democratic Party has found itself in a precarious position as its long-running internal civil war continues to spill out into the open.
For all the talk of GOP troubles regarding its presidential primary, Democrats find themselves stuck between a senile old man who may not be able to physically run, and the heir apparent, who just so happens to be one of the most unlikable, untalented politicians in history. That’s left party power brokers with basically one option: Continue to play “Weekend at Bernie’s” with Joe Biden no matter what the cost.
They can’t let Harris be the nominee, and they know it. That’s led to a lot of consternation being shared in the press about the vice president’s trouble. Now, some are trying to clean up that mess, and it’s not going well at all.
According to CNN, Harris is not even returning Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s calls at this point.
This all is pretty funny, and would be funnier if it wasn’t so sad. The great bit is this, though, in an excerpt from the CNN story linked in the excerpt:
But the Warren moment is infuriating many in Harris’s circle: To them, it’s the latest in a long string of snubs to a vice president whom they say has never gotten the respect or support she deserves.
Here’s what CNN gets wrong: Kamala Harris is (or should be) getting precisely the respect she deserves, which is, none. She is a poster child for failing upwards. She rose to political prominence in California on Willy Brown’s penis, furthered her fame by shtupping Montel Williams, and was appointed Joe Biden’s running mate because she has brown skin and a vagina; no other qualifications were required.
And now the Dems are stuck with her. I’d say she’s the ultimate diversity hire, but the field there is pretty crowded. I will say this: the 2024 election is going to be very, very interesting.
