In watching the Democrat debates, I've said the only candidate that made any sense (other than Mayor Pete Buttigieg) is Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii. As a result, she is polling at only about 2%, right down there with skim milk. This is understandable in today's Democratic Party, where there is no longer room for a sensible candidate.
Gabbard may have gotten a boost in today's politics, which now rival a World Wrestling Federation match. This because of a cat fight with Hillary Clinton after Clinton called her a "Russian asset." Gabbard summed up the Hilda-beast well when she responded to Hillary, "You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democrat Party for so long " She seems to know a lot about the Clintons from a distance but not too much about them firsthand; we know this because she's still alive.
A "Russian spy" is what this new McCarthy-like Democrat Party calls adversaries whom they cannot call misogynistic or racist. In Trump's case, they call him all three, the "hat trick" of political hate.
Dems just keep trying to impeach Trump with accusations by manufactured, third-hand, deep state, partisan "whistle-blowers." I guess Bill Clinton had his own "whistle-blower" in the Oval Office who got him impeached, but history won't repeat itself.
One would think the Democrat Party would embrace this young, attractive, diverse, Hindu, female war veteran who is anti-war - and with U.S. congressional experience. But what Democrats say and do always diverge.
Inexplicably, Tulsi hurt herself with Dems by being libertarian on these endless wars, especially in Syria. I'm not sure when it happened that Democrats have become the party of war, and Trump has become the dove bent on extricating us from intractable quagmires in the mid-East. I guess it was when Barack Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize while having us in more wars for longer than any U.S. president in history. I presume the Dems like wars now because they can wield more power and have another pocket (the military industrial complex) to grift from. Also, no great socialist in history has come to power without the military on his side.
Essentially the only sharp woman left in the Democrat primary field is Gabbard. In a debate, she brilliantly pointed out Kamala Harris' hypocritical track record on race when she was attorney general of California. Gabbard so owned the other candidates in that debate that Kamala and Cory Booker asked for reparations.
With Joe Biden imploding so badly that soon he will only be able to get his son, Hunter, on his condo HOA board, Elizabeth "Pocahontas" Warren is the recent big winner. You do not have to be 1/1024th Indian to read those smoke signals. It was a good month for "Pocahontas."
The Gabbard fight erupted when Hillary made noise that she might run for president again in 2020. Run in 2020? As I remember, Hillary had a hard time just walking in 2016. Hillary lost to Donald Trump in 2016 when any idiot could have beaten him. But Hillary has proven herself over and over to be not just any idiot.
Hillary remains mean, vindictive and very Hillary about that loss. Would one of you millennials end this and give her one of your participation trophies so she will just stop?
If Hillary had been elected, all this would not have been revealed to us. And you would never have heard of Jeffrey Epstein and Harvey Weinstein; they would have been quietly appointed U.S. ambassadors to Thailand.
Anyone paying attention to the body politic for the last 30 years knows the Clintons are mean, spiteful and a force to be reckoned with. Hillary needs to seek therapy for her anger. I have heard that one way therapists help folks rid themselves of their hate is to write letters to all those who have angered them and then burn them. And if Hillary's psychologist suggests this, I hope it was made very clear that he means the letters.
