SUPPOSEDLY, we are going to find out Joe Biden’s vice-presidential pick by next week, but unless Biden goes rogue, it doesn’t matter who he picks.
Everyone on the short list is frightful. And Biden is still the same angry confused corrupt old man no matter who he picks!
Supposedly, Biden has narrowed his list of potential partners in crime to three.
Rep. Karen Bass is an old-school communist who felt bad when Fidel Castro died (she probably still has a ratty Che Guevara T-shirt stuffed in the back of the closet). She also has accomplished nothing in her long tenure in Congress (but at least she would not outshine Do-Nothing Joe).
Sen. Kamala Harris accused Biden of being a racist during the primary campaign, plus she is a former California attorney general who liked cops before she hated them, and she happens to be one of the most unpleasant people to ever win an election. Oh did I mention she is a communist, too?!
Then there is Susan Rice. Talk about the gift that keeps on giving! How could anyone seriously put Susan Rice on the ticket? Yeah, that Susan Rice, the former Obama National Security Adviser. The one who lied about the murder of a US ambassador at Benghazi not once, but five times, on Sunday morning talk shows in the course of three hours! Also the one who wrote the CYA “email to self” in the final minutes of the Obama administration to memorialize the Jan. 5, 2017 meeting at the White House when she claims Barack Obama told all present he wanted the Trump-Russia probe to be handled “by the book.” Yeah, right.
Honestly, you would think Bass would be the weakest candidate, but there you would be wrong. Bass at least has a genuine smile and she seems like a well-meaning communist at least. Harris and Rice, on the other hand, are pit vipers whose smiles have all the allure of the Joker’s. They are remarkably unpleasant people who would not wear well on the campaign trail. Every time, people thought about Old Joe Biden lying in state, they would pinch themselves in order to make sure that President Harris or President Rice was still just a bad nightmare.
I can’t think of a better gift to the Trump campaign than to wake up next week and find Joe sputtering gibberish as he announces that the real next president will be the scoundrel Susan Rice. Except maybe the same scenario with Kamala playing the part of Lady Macbeth:
“Come, you spirits
That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here,
And fill me from the crown to the toe topful
Of direst cruelty!”
No sooner said than done!
