Hart: I hope Caitlyn Jenner wins the California governor's race

Photo by Damian Dovarganes of The Associated Press / In this Jan. 18, 2020, file photo, Caitlyn Jenner speaks at the 4th Women's March in Los Angeles. In her four days as a candidate for California governor, Jenner had a twitter spat with a Democratic congressman, unveiled a website to sell campaign coffee mugs and swag and was photographed with a startup business owner.

This will be fun. Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known to the world as Bruce Jenner, is running as a Republican to unseat egotistically left, pious hypocrite Gov. Gavin "Do as I Say, Not as I Do" Newsom.

Olympic decathlon idol of my childhood, Caitlyn Jenner may have given up broad jumping to transition to a woman, but she is my hero. She was on the Wheaties box when I was a kid. Let's hope she wins the race in California.

The vicious lie that predicates every liberal's debate with someone right-of-center is that we are homophobic, racist, xenophobic and the new one, transphobic. In reality, we do not care a bit about all that stuff. We just want someone to run the government who can fix the potholes and keep the streets safe, schools good and taxes low. When those things are done, get out of our business.

What will the left do with a transgendered Republican running? It will kill them to try to destroy her. I can see the California Senate holding hearings on rumors that, when she was young, Caitlyn Jenner's private parts were fondled regularly by famous athlete and Republican Bruce Jenner.

Given what has happened to the Republican Party post-Trump, it will be good that Caitlin runs. I can get behind the idea that there is finally a Republican with cojones.

Perhaps the influence and the politics of the self-righteous leftist class in California are waning. The Oscars ratings crashed so hard you'd think Tiger Woods was driving with Harrison Ford.

Hollywood held its increasingly awful Academy Awards in LA's historic Union Station. They had to gently "bum's rush" all the indigents and vagrants out in order to do the show. In reality, with all the actors there and the homeless gone, mental illness and intravenous drug use actually spiked.

That is what happens when you legalize drugs in California - a state where cocaine is essentially legal and plastic straws are illegal. Imagine how infuriating that must be to law-abiding cocaine users.

Will the Republican Caitlyn Jenner really change the nutty world of California politics? Probably not. But she can put a speed bump on the loony left's ideas and perhaps lower taxes that will stem the exodus of the most productive people from California.

And it will be a boon for the Kardashians, who have lost steam with their show "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" - partially around the fact that Kanye West has become a bigger ass. But can you blame him? Having one mother-in-law is hard enough, but now two?

I will pitch another show in which Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Caitlyn's daughters, do a new reality show: "One-and-a-Half Mothers."

I hope Oprah interviews Caitlyn when she runs and treats her with kid gloves like she did Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Maybe Oprah will if Jenner is presented as royalty, perhaps as the Duke and Duchess of Middlesex?

Caitlyn is smart. She is killing it on the corporate speech circuit. Ex-Olympic champion, transgender icon - she clicks a lot of CYA boxes for companies trying to buy their wokeness. And she is a smart businessperson. Caitlyn makes 10 times more money than Bruce ever did.

To be a good governor you must make good decisions. It is hard being a straight white male in California, so Caitlyn Jenner is smart; she got out just in time. It takes a pair to do what she did.

Now that Caitlyn has been outed as a Republican, her coddling by the liberal media will end. It is the worst outing you can get in these times: a person who thinks independently coming to her own political conclusions. And say goodbye to winning Glamour and Vanity Fair's Woman of the Year Award. That would just reinforce the myth that men are better at everything they try.
