My Monday column predicting the state of the Democratic Party after Super Tuesday proved to be less than prescient.
I had anticipated a less substantial win for Joe Biden in South Carolina, and certainly expected one-time leader Pete Buttigieg, one-time debate winner Amy Klobuchar, and one-time pandering oligarch Tom Steyer to remain in the race through tonight’s Super Tuesday contests. Instead they all dropped out, and Buttigieg and Klobuchar (along with gun grabber Beto O’Rourke) endorsed Biden.
The momentum for Biden proved to be a game changer, and crushed the hopes of Mini Mike Bloomberg to be the last moderate standing. As a result, the likelihood of a contested convention has diminished back close to zero. Although Bloomberg is collecting delegates tonight, it now looks like essentially a two-man fight between Biden and Communist Bernie Sanders, with the edge going to Biden.
But the basic premise of my column, “The Unbearable Incompetence of Democrats,” was incontrovertible. Even if they win, Democrats will just screw it up. A Bernie vs. Biden race will expose the internecine warfare at the heart of the Democrat Party, but at least the establishment seems to realize Bernie is a disaster waiting to happen. America doesn’t want to elect a communist.
But what about Joe? The results of Super Tuesday bring back into relevance my January column, “Are Dems Crazy? How Can Biden Still Be Their No. 1 Choice?” More than ever, it does seem like Democrats don’t care about corruption, they are willing to overlook senility and yes they are total batshit crazy if they nominate Quid Pro Joe!
Plus, if anyone thinks that Bernie Sanders supporters are going to turn out in large numbers for corrupt Joe Biden in November, they need to visit a re-education center for an update on their thinking nodule. And if Democrats, can’t motivate their voters, then President Trump will win re-election easily.
I know, I know… I’m not a prophet, but a Democrat Party divided against itself cannot long stand.
