Imagine you’re the Democrats. You believe Donald Trump is a buffoon, he shouldn’t be President, the only reason he won is because: Russia. You’re livid, all the time. Everything
you’ve tried to do to destroy Trump has failed. He’s in the Oval
Office, energetically pursuing his agenda, and his loyal supporters are still with him, enthused.
Who’s your bench? Who are you going to send into the arena
to battle the Trump team?
Now imagine your dismay as you survey your geriatric
Commie squad of losers.
The Democrats don’t have a bench. In the immediate aftermath
of their 2016 loss, they tried to change the subject to 2020,
and started discussing their front-runners. Every person they mentioned is ancient, and will be even more ancient next Inauguration
Day. At the top of the list: Joe Biden, who’ll be 78. He’s the No.
1 choice. Also mentioned: California Governor Jerry “Moonbeam”
Brown, 82. Been there, done that.
This is my point. There is no young, up-and-coming
star. Screeching Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren will be 71.
Hillary Clinton, who has already struck out multiple times,
“is ready to come out of the woods” for another turn at bat,
batty as that is. She’ll be 73 in 2020, if she keeps her medi-van at the ready. The Clinton camp is trying to make Chelsea
happen, with scads of paid P.R. (Chelsea! Honored by Variety
magazine “for her humanitarian work!”) but the daughter is
a political washout.
The Party was hoping that one of the Castro brothers from
Havana — sorry, I mean San Antonio — might be in the
pipeline: twins Julián and Joaquín Castro, now 42, Texas
Democrat up-and-comers. But actually, the Cuban Castro
brothers would be a far better fit on today’s Democrat bench of
decrepit old leftists. Fidel may be gone now, but as a dead
communist, he is a perfect representative of Democrat ideology.
The future of the Party: embalmed.
Left to right: Bill Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, Fidel “Room Temperature” Castro, Raúl Castro, Tom Perez, Bernie Sanders, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton,
Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, Julián Castro, Joaquín Castro, Democrat “Last Legs” Donkey.
