A few days ago, Issues & Insights, one of my favorite commentary sites, published a pretty fun piece on the MIA Vice President, Kamala “Heels-Up” Harris.
Not long after Russia invaded Ukraine, Vice President Kamala Harris showcased her keen grasp of international affairs by explaining the war thusly:
“Ukraine is a country in Europe. It exists next to another country called Russia. Russia is a bigger country. Russia is a powerful country. Russia decided to invade a smaller country called Ukraine. So, basically, that’s wrong.”
Despite being true, it was widely mocked for being so incredibly insipid. Kamala wasn’t talking to kindergartners, who probably have a better grasp of world affairs than she, but to listeners of a radio program.
Now, after Hamas invaded Israel and slaughtered hundreds of innocent civilians, including beheading children, Kamala has been silent. The only time we’ve seen her was as she stood stone-faced behind President Joe Biden while he attempted to express outrage that an ally had been brutally attacked.
I would like to point out one thing; Kamala doesn’t blather the way she does because she thinks she’s talking to children. She blathers the way she does because she’s incapable of thinking above that level herself. She has all of the wit and perception of a butter bean, and that becomes more apparent every time this administration’s handlers let her out of her closet long enough to pour out another word salad.
Kamala has been missing in action for some time. On Sunday, the New York Times magazine even ran a big feature – which obviously had been in the works before the Hamas attack – titled “In Search of Kamala Harris.” The article laments that “After nearly three years, Vice President Kamala Harris is still struggling to make the case for herself – and feels she shouldn’t have to.”
(Apparently, Harris is too ignorant of history – even the history of her own party – to recall that it was FDR’s Vice President John Nance Garner who once described the job of vice president as “not worth a bucket of warm piss.” But that’s beside the point.)
Well, here’s Kamala’s opportunity to make that case.
She could say something like: “Israel is a country. It exists next to an enclave called Gaza, where people called Hamas live. Israel is a bigger country. Israel is a powerful country. Hamas decided to invade a larger country called Israel. So, basically, that makes no sense.”
Of course, the Democrats will resist letting Kamala embarrass them again, and honestly, I can see why they would want to keep her quiet.
I’ve been saying, and writing, for some years now that our republic has devolved into a kakistocracy – that is, government by the very worst, least capable among us. As evidence I offer the President, a drooling, senile incompetent. I would also offer the aforementioned Vice President, who rode into politics atop Willie Brown’s penis and has demonstrated no talent or ability beyond that. And how about this administration’s Press Secretary, a blatant diversity hire who is probably the worse person to ever hold that position?
This is an administration that, in the name of “diversity,” put a luggage thief in charge of nuclear waste disposal; kept a soft-shelled invertebrate as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs; I could go on all day.
I know I’ve said it before and I know I’ll say it again; 2024 can’t come soon enough. But these issues only affect one-third of the Imperial government; if you think that Congress hasn’t been captured by the kakistocracy as well, I can only refer you to the infamous “Squad” as proof.
