Todays Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends)
You can tell a lot about a Democrat debate by reading the reviews posted about it by CNN and the New York Times. Those two fake news media sources are, after all, the official mouthpieces for the Democrat Party, and their readers/viewers heavily tilt towards the voters who will end up picking the partys nominee next year.
Over at CNN, old political chimera/hack David Gergen hilariously (unintentionally) said that the highlight of the debate was the emergence of a coalition of five moderates: Bullock, Delaney, Amy Klobuchar, Tim Ryan, and John Hickenlooper.
Heres whats funny about that: If you add up the polling numbers in the latest national horse race polls of those five moderates, you get wait for it ZERO. Ok, maybe you get 1, because Klobuchar does still occasionally register a smidgen of support here and there. But still, thats a highlight?
The fact is that there is no such thing as an actual moderate in the Democrat party at the national level anymore. Every one of those five candidates Gergen names is for abortion until the moment of birth. Every one of them is for forcing American taxpayers to provide free healthcare to illegal immigrants. Every one of them is for some form of nationalized healthcare. Every one of them is for taking away your guns and effectively doing away with the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution. Every one of them would vote in lockstep with San Fran Nan if they served in the House of Representatives and every one of them would vote along with AOC and the Squad about 90% of the time.
Gergen as always is a big raging doofus. But the point here is that, if that was the most notable point of this debate in Gergens mind, just exactly how awful was it, really, and what does that say about the efforts of the other 7 candidates who were on the stage last night?
Fridah Ghetis, the next CNN writer on the matter, said the night belonged to Klobuchar, Warren and Buttigieg. Folks, any Democrat debate that belonged to the most abusive member of the U.S. Senate, a life-long fake Indian and the failed mayor of a small town in Indiana is a pure recipe for the landslide re-election of Donald J. Trump.
Lets have more of these nights, please. I vote for one every week.
The New York Times, meanwhile, completely disagrees with Ghetis and CNN, singling out Klobuchar and Buttigieg as two of the three people on the stage last night who did not achieve the breakout moment they really needed to invigorate their campaigns.
The third named by the Times? Every fake journalists former love interest, Irish Bob ORourke. The senate looooooooser from Texas yet again demonstrated that he has no place whatsoever being in this race he simply has no compelling reason for being on that stage, and it showed. When a guy who just got whipped in a statewide senate race tells the world that the main reason to nominate him is that he can win Texas, you know the love affair is over.
Irish Bob is done. If he had a lick of sense, he would end his presidential campaign today and come back to Texas to run in next years senate race vs. John Cornyn. He would lose that race, too, but hed probably lose by a slimmer margin than anyone else the feckless Texas Democrat Party might nominate.
There were three real, obvious winners from this debate. The first two are the two front-runners actually second and third-place runners behind Creepy Uncle Joe Fauxcahontas and The Commie. The DNC had set this first night up as an opportunity for these two to go after one another, something they both refused to do. Neither one laid a hammer, sickle or tomahawk on the other, and their various run-ins with non-entities like John Delaney and Hickenlooper will make no difference to any brain-dead Democrat voter. Thus, the 2nd-and-third-runners will emerge in the polls following this weeks debates in those same positions.
The third obvious winner is the one who won this debate in the only measure that matters: public perception. That person is clearly the new-age nut Marianne Williamson, who felt the need to tell an interviewer prior to the debate that she is not a new-age nut. Well, ok, then.
But she is very entertaining, unorthodox, and, unlike anyone else on that stage, she is the one person who was actually speaking extemporaneously, saying exactly what was on her mind and what she really, truly believes. As a result, it is no accident that, as of this writing, she is receiving 47%(!) of the vote in the live Drudge Report post-debate poll as the candidate who won the debate. It is no accident that Google says she was the most-searched candidate in 49 of 50 states as the debate was going on.
Heres the other thing that sets Williamson apart from the rest of the Democrat field: She speaks in a way that most ordinary Americans can relate to. The TV pundits can all laugh about her comments about there being dark spiritual forces at work in American society today, but I dont know how anyone can watch 90% of the putrid dreck coming out of Hollywood these days or read about the thousands of arrests and prosecutions of child-traffickers and child-porn distributors in recent months and think that that is not a true statement.
Williamson also speaks using uplifting language rather than the dark, depressing language of the socialism being pushed by everyone around her. She talks about things like potential and beauty and success and hopes and dreams instead of the wonkish polemics being offered by automatons like The Commie and Mayor Pete. Shes been talking about things like this in front of huge audiences for more than a quarter of a century, and shes really good at it.
The DNC is scared to death of her and will no doubt rig the process to try to keep her out of the next rounds of debates, as they are already doing to Andrew Yang. But we should expect Williamson to get some sort of polling boost out of last nights performance.
More than anything else, what last nights debate showed us was the somewhat amazing weakness of the Democrat field of clowns, er, candidates, and how increasingly unlikely it is that anyone on that stage will have a prayer of beating President Trump in next years general election.
Im cool with that.
That is all.

wondering what the STATS..how many people watched. My wife woke up this a.m. and said. WHAT...THE DEMOCRATS HAD A DEBATE LAST NIGHT. The fact that CNN was reporting it I knew it had to be a fake set up.
Unless I missed something where was Creepy Joe last night?

Go Williamson! I WANT you to be the presidential nominee for the Demoncrap Partay.
And if you lost, I would want you appointed ambassador to Buthan.
Creepy on tonight, yo.
Along with Kommie-lala Whorris.
Ok thanks. Good morning.
Neither one laid a hammer, sickle or tomahawk on the other...
That line made me laugh out loud.
Thanks. I enjoyed writing it. :)
Good morning to you as well.
I’m currently enjoying a delicious cup of Southern Wedding Cake coffee whilst perusing ze news.
I want a “PROUD MEMBER OF THE DARK PSYCHIC FORCE!” t-shirt.
Marianne Williamson is the left’s latest attempt at repackaging the same communist totalitarian bull sh*t and trying to conn us into believing it’s something new.
If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullsh*t. ― W.C. Fields
Someone described Williamson to me as “Joel Osteen in a dress”
Marianne Williamson, there’s a blast from the past. I had no idea she was running until about a week ago. Wouldn’t surprise me if she did indeed win the night.
No question on the Mueller report. No candidate commented on the Mueller report or impeachment. The elephant in the room.
Democrat Party continues to self-destruct itself politically. The results of the Drudge Report “Democrat Party 2020 POTUS debate last night are as follows:
- Winner Marianne Williamson with 47% of the vote, 26,445 votes for Willianson.
- #2 loser was John Delaney with 12% of the vote, 6,948 votes for Delane
- The rest of the weak Democrat field is not worth mentioning.
The Straw Poll total vote was pitiful & dismal with very few votes cast compared to the first round of Democrat debates in June, where about 200,000 votes were cast. Last evening only a puny 56,490 votes were cast. Going back to “Trump “ era Straw Polls the votes cast ranged between 300,00 to 600,000 votes cast.
I suspect when the TV viewer numbers are reported later today, CNN & The Democrat Party will have not had a good “TV” night. The conclusion reached on this information indicates the entire Democrat Part is dying politically from top to bottom...period!!!
The truth sometimes may hurt....but, the truth is still always the truth.
Thats the real interesting thing about the Democrats. They can publicly step on their genitals with golf cleats and in a mere moment pretend nothing ever happened.

Worse than that. She is a believer in, and wrote a book on “A Course In Miracles”.
Last night was the Thrilla in Vanilla. All the candidates on stage were white. Tonight it is the minorities turn.
