Handicapping The Dems' 'Bonfire Of The Mediocrities'

PJ Media
By Roger L. Simon
June 11, 2019

Excerpt:

With the standard caveat "It's waaaay early" (is that enough a's?) here's my analysis of the Democrat horse race so far.

Who am I to do this? Well, I was among the first to publicly predict a Trump victory, but so what? I was taking a flyer then and am now. But so is everybody else. So here goes.

But before I start, you will note I channeled Tom Wolfe by calling this the "Bonfire of the Mediocrities" because I don't think you could possibly find twenty-four duller individuals in a phone book (to channel William F. Buckley) than those running for the Democratic nomination. It's stunning, actually, and a sad commentary all by itself about our politics. Where are the Bobby Kennedys of yesteryear? I'd even take Hubert Humphrey, I'm so desperate. The best and the brightest? This is more like the worst and the dimmest and I'm not just talking about Bill de Blasio and Eric Swalwell.

Further, there may be "nothing new under the sun," but I have yet to hear a single idea with even an iota of originality from any of those "mediocrity-crats." Everything is recycled as if copied from the back pages of a Sears catalog circa 1932 copied being the operative word.

But enough of burying my lede. If you're going to take a flyer, take a flyer.

I PREDICT... drum roll... the Democratic candidate for 2020 will be... ta-dum... Elizabeth Warren.

Yes, yes, I know Joe Biden is currently the frontrunner in all the polls, but the man was last year's news in 1983. Besides the obvious endless plagiarism, icky handsy behavior, and litany of corruption we all know about (Ukraine, etc.), can you imagine this dodderer negotiating with Xi Jinping? Trump's already dubbed him a "dummy" and, like many of Donald's nicknames, it may but rude, but it's accurate.

Nevertheless, Joe might be better than number two in the polls, Bernie Sanders (aka Woody Guthrie without the talent), who is a communist himself. (Oops, sorry. Democratic socialist please to call it research.) Maybe he could teach Xi the words to "This Land Is Your Land," if not him, Putin. Speaking of which, imagine the kompromat the Russkies have on Bernie. It might turn Adam Schiff Republican. But never mind, neither of the oldsters will make it to the finish line.

They're an example of the kind of person who would do well in their Utopian society, where individualism and independent thought are counter-productive. Actually, such places already exist in the world, but you'd be hard pressed to call it Utopia...

It could be Warren, but if so, her probability of victory against Trump is about 1/1024 (generously).

Warren's a hard campaigner and doesn't come off as stupid, which in this field says a lot. She's also the only woman with a shot, and that counts for even more in today's Democratic Party that is panting for a female candidate. Pair her with one of the Castro brothers (not Raul, but Julian or Joaquin) and the Dems have a ticket that will satisfy all the moral narcissists from the Upper West Side to Pacific Palisades.


Has Roger L. Simon seen her? Her disastrous live stream. I'm going to get me a beer. The woman is my Senator unfortunately. She is not that bright. Off script she quickly gets a deer in the headlights look.
