The political season is (thankfully) in the home stretch, but I have noted one person whose career is going to be worth watching: Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake.
Watch the video embedded in the linked story, in which the Republican Lake trounces a reporter asking a loaded question. She’s good at this: Smart, informed, articulate and fearless. I expect she won’t stop in Arizona.
Imagine a DeSantis/Lake ticket for the Imperial Mansion! What I would love to see is a VP debate between Kari Lake and Heels-Up Harris. It would be a bloodbath – although some prominent Dems are already calling for Harris to drop out. Frankly they’d do better if Joe Biden dropped out, too.
With that said…
On To the Links!
Newt Gingrich thinks CO Senate candidate Joe O’Dea will beat incumbent Dem Michael Bennett. I’d like to see this happen, but color me skeptical – Colorado is a pretty blue state now. That’s one of the reasons we left.
Graveyard of dead stars. No, it’s not in Beverly Hills.
Yes, weak rural turnout could hurt the GOP on Election Day – but I doubt we’ll see weak turnout.
This Week’s Idiots:
The New York Times’ Ezra Klein (Repeat Offender Alert) is also an idiot. Why is the Left’s answer to every problem always “OMG more taxes”?
This Week’s Cultural Edification:
Paul Simon has had quite a career, beginning with his partnership with Art Garfunkel and continuing on to a great solo career. He’s produced some serious tunes and some more light-hearted stuff. I like the light-hearted stuff better, and my favorite in that vein is his 1986 tune You Can Call Me Al, from the album Graceland.
What makes the video for this song fun is the coordination between 6’4″ Chevy Chase, lip-syncing Simon’s lyrics, and the 5’3″ Simon, who mimes playing various instruments. Every time I watch the video it prompts a chuckle.
Here it is, then. Enjoy.
