I spent the morning watching last night’s speakers from the Republican National Convention. And I have to say, lots of powerful speeches and amazing people. It doesn’t surprise me that President Trump’s approval rating reached its highest point in the Zogby poll. He got a bounce from the Democratic National Convention, and now he’s getting another bounce from his own.
And what is the Biden Team’s solution to salvaging their decrepit old basement-dweller’s cratering support?
A celebrity army deployed to reach out to us normal American voters who so far have been immune to the hectoring lectures from an army of celebrities.
According to the Associated Press, the Biden campaign is “flooding the zone with celebrity backers.”
Well, I’m sure this will work out great!
Heaven knows we Americans can’t begin a single day without first checking to see what spectacular pearls of wisdom Alyssa Milano has for us. She’s like “Our Daily Bread” for the Godless Smart Set.
So I’m sure Joe’s Celebrity Army will really pull Joe’s plummeting numbers out of this dive.
Because it worked so well for Hillary.
Remember how President Hillary Clinton rode to victory thanks to Beyonce, Jay-Z, Jennifer Lopez, Lena Dunham and the battalion of finger-wagging celebrities who showed up to lecture us during the 2016 Democratic Convention?
The only time Hillary Clinton held a rally with more than a few dozen people was when she glommed on to a concert featuring her celebrity “surrogates” (and if you click the link, I apologize in advance for the Photoshop I made).
The fact that Team Biden is trotting out their own celebrity army pretty much confirms that the Democrats have all but given up on appealing to ordinary Americans. Because, let’s face it, celebrities have spent the last four years burning any bridges between us to the ground.
From the AP article:
“We’re just flooding the zone as much as possible,” said Michelle Kwan, Biden’s surrogate director and an Olympic silver and bronze medalist figure skater who held a similar post for Hillary Clinton in 2016. “Our artists and actors who are surrogates, they tend to be at home so their availability and their schedule has opened up (and) they’re willing to do more things.” [Emphasis Dianny’s]
Who on Team Biden came up with this idea?
“Hey, everybody! Remember when Michelle Kwan rallied celebrities to Hillary’s side and it worked out so well? Let’s see if she can bring some of that magic to the Biden campaign!”
Why in Lucifer’s reach does the Democrat Party consistently reward failure?
To quote a certain over-the-hill political lifer, “C’mon, man!”
Another quote from the AP:
The campaign also holds events partnering some of its staffers with celebrities so that discussions on policy reach audiences that may not be closely following the presidential race, deliberately blurring the line between pop culture and politics even more.
“We’re introducing our campaign to their followers who might not always be involved with the campaign,” said Adrienne Elrod, a Clinton 2016 spokeswoman who is now Biden’s director of surrogate strategy and operations.
Oh, look. Adrienne Elrod. Another Clinton alum. Naturally the Biden campaign is enlisting the same bang-up team that helped Hillary lose.
It’s like these guys learned absolutely nothing from 2016.
Did Team Biden simply dust off the Clinton Playbook, scratch out Hillary’s name and scribble in Joe’s?
At this rate, I’m thinking Joe will avoid campaigning in Wisconsin because that apparently was the Clinton Playbook too.
A celebrity army will only remind voters that the Democrats are the party of the wealthy and famous.
Maybe if these smug, entitled “stars” hadn’t spent the last four years attacking us as racist, xenophobic, Nazis, fascists, and stupid we’d give a crap about what they have to say.
But after failing to catapult Hillary into the White House, that is exactly how they acted. That is, when they weren’t vowing to move to Canada or New Zealand or some other predominately white, English-speaking country.
Celebrities dropped all pretense after the election of Donald Trump and went all-in with the ResistanceLOL. So much so, the entire first section of my latest book RANT: Derangement & Resistance in MAGA Country is devoted to these insufferable, bitter celebrity cranks.
And yet the Biden Campaign actually thinks that, after how downright hateful and nasty these celebrities have behaved since 2016, the secret ingredient to his electoral success is a celebrity army deployed to lecture and scold us once again.
This is a monumentally stupid and out-of-touch maneuver. Brought to the Biden Campaign by the very people who sank Hillary’s despite her own celebrity army.
And no matter how completely Team Biden “floods the zone,” this army will deliver the same crushing defeat for the poor, hapless Joe that it did for Hillary in 2016.
Possibly more so.
