On a roll, picking up speed

John Nolte is feeling the Bern.

If there’s one cliché the idiotic pundit class gets right it’s this one: candidates matter.

Candidates matter more than issues, and they matter more than whatever real or contrived sins shimmer in their past.

A young inexperienced black radical who spent 20 years in a racist church should not have beat a respected war hero, but that’s exactly what happened in 2008. Why? Because No Drama Obama was the better candidate, the alpha male, the one who wasn’t the neurotic who quit the campaign to go and save the economy.

A New York billionaire who used to be a Democrat and who never held elective office had no chance against 16 seasoned Republican politicians, and he kicked their collective butts. Why? Because Donald Trump was the better candidate, the alpha male, the one who was never caught off guard, who knew how to fight the media, who stood his ground and made us laugh. He was pure competence.

Sure, some of us vote on the issues, but in the end, in the age of mass media and TV — and history proves this — it’s the candidate who matters. And all this talk about “lanes” is pure psychobabble.  There’s only one lane in presidential politics: the Competency Lane, and a Jurassic Marxist owns that lane. Why? Because…

Elizabeth Warren is a shrill neurotic, Pete Buttigieg is a platitude-spewing dork, Joe Biden is as shockingly corrupt as he is past his prime, Amy Klobuchar has all the charisma of a clock radio, and Mike Bloomberg is a humorless, sour-faced dwarf.

Bernie’s Bernie. He’s tough, hard to catch off guard, comfortable in his skin, actually believes in something, and that’s why he’s winning.

How important can “voting the issues” really be anyway, when everyone already knows that the winning candidate’s platform will end up tossed out the window and forgotten around, ohhh, five minutes or so after the victor checks into his new Oval Office digs anyway? Hell, the one and only President we’ve had in years who even tried to make good on at least some of his campaign pledges is Trump, and just look at how little credit he gets for the effort.

I’m telling you folks, Bernie could quite easily fall ass-backwards into winning this thing. Horrible as he is in all ways great and small, he’s the only Democrat-Socialist generating real energy and excitement out there, even if that passion is strictly limited to the stupid, the ignorant, and the ill-informed. Nonchalantly assume it can’t possibly happen, and you could well end up with the same stunned, despairing expression splashed across your mug as our adversaries were sporting the morning after Election Day 2016.

  1. The hope in this is that Krayzee Bernee arouses the same level of emotion in those who despise him. Given The Mighty Kenyan was elected twice I never doubt that disasters happen or that the Drooling Masses really ARE as stupid as they seem.

    Still, voting for Trump in the primary is even more wasted than voting Dem. By voting (D) en masse at least we can add to the confusion on their side.

  2. Mike, why do you insist on using “Democrat Socialist” or “Socialist” as the descriptors?  That is THEIR terminology.  Call them what they are.  Communists, Fascists, Totalitarians, Authoritarians.  “Socialist” is merely the well marketed term for what they really are.  I can understand retards like Ben Shapiro prattling on about “Socialism” as if he still thinks that term will dissuade anyone from voting D.  I can’t understand YOU doing it.

  3. Here’s a scenario I think could happen:

    Sanders goes into the convention with a plurality, but not a majority, of the delegates.  Biden, despite having all the mental acuity of a plate of baked ziti and continuing to campaign for everything from Senate to Prime Minister, is close.  The convention goes to the second ballot, and at this point the superdelegates kick in, having no desire to nominate the old commie.  But who?

    Warren is ridiculous and a fraud.

    Mayor Petey is a homo, and there’s no way the blacks will vote for a fag.

    Klobuchar is boring, not well known, and has baggage with mistreating her staff.

    And Biden, by convention time, can barely recognize himself in a mirror.

    So – they sell the party to Bloomberg.  The Dems are damn near broke, and Bloomer can fix that.  So – a billion into the Presidential campaign, a billion into the Congressional and Senatorial races, a billion into their piggy bank, and probably several million to many of the muckety-mucks in power and the superdelegates.  Bloomberg “wins” the nomination on the second or third ballot.

    The Bernie Bros lose their collective shit – not that they’re far from that anyway.  Their rich old guy has just been fucked over by a far richer old guy.  Milwaukee burns.

    Bernie runs as an Independent – or maybe as a Socialist, stripping off all his supporters from the D’s.  Why not?  He won’t win, but he’s an ideologue and it’s his last shot to run for President.  If he loved the Dems, he’d be one.  Bloomberg gets massacred in the debates by Trump, and despite running ads every 30 seconds on every network, gets clobbered in November.

    Yeah – it’s written with a tiny tongue in cheek tone, but I can see every bit of it happening.  The biggest doomsday scenario to me is what Bloomberg’s money will do in the down-ballot races for the D’s.
