I mentioned back in late January that Kamala Harris is at a distinct disadvantage in the 2020 Primary. Namely, as a Democrat from California, she has never faced a competitive race.
When all you need to win in a one-party state like California is a “D” after your name, actual skill as a politician – or actual knowledge or skill at anything for that matter – is not needed.
And given Kamala’s inability to think on her feet and answer questions, I’m thinking she’s learning the hard way that she’s not ready for a national race.
After Bernie Sanders stupidly blundered into his “let the Boston Bomber on death row have the right to vote” insanity at CNN’s town hall Monday night, Kamala was asked to give her opinion.
It’s really a simple yes or no answer. But Kamala, like Hamlet, couldn’t make up her mind between “Yes, the Boston Bomber on death row should vote” or “Are you kidding me?! No!”
Now, a politician NOT from California could have fielded that question without batting an eye.
Unfortunately, Kamala is from California where actually having the stones to answer questions is not a prerequisite for winning elections.
So she tried that typical “answer a question that was not asked instead of the question that was asked” tactic.
But instead of letting her get away with the deflection, Don Lemon pressed her on letting the Boston Bomber vote from death row.
And poor Kamala once again became a deer in the headlights.
She couldn’t make up her mind. So she punted.
“I think we should have that conversation.”
Really? Whether we should let the Boston Bomber on death row vote is worthy of a conversation?
Well, now we know Kamala meant “Let me have that conversation with my campaign people to determine the best way to answer and I’ll get back to you in 24 hours.”
Because the next day, Kamala finally gave her answer.
Sen @KamalaHarris just clarified her position. “Do I think that people who commit murder, people who are terrorists, should be deprived of their rights? Yeah, I do…There has to be serious consequences for the most extreme types of crimes.” https://t.co/jU6lJ1PB7l— Wolf Blitzer (@wolfblitzer) April 24, 2019
From: “I think we should have that conversation” to “Should they be deprived of their rights? YES!” is not what we on Planet Earth call “clarifying your answer.” Instead, we call that “finally answering the damn question.”
What kind of a wishy-washy, indecisive candidate needs an entire day to answer that question?
You know what? From now on, I’m going to refer to this floundering fool as Kamala Hamlet.
Running for office in California is not competitive. You don’t need to work for it. Hell, you don’t even really need to campaign.
So Kamala Hamlet can get away with being indecisive and unable to answer questions on the fly. Because thinking on your feet is not a prerequisite for California Democrats.
Kamala Hamlet can brush off hard questions all the livelong day and she’ll still win election in her state because having a “D” after her name is the only prerequisite needed.
But being Kamala Hamlet won’t fly in a competitive national race.
When the Democrat candidates are finally amassed on the debate stage, Kamala Hamlet is going to be expected to answer questions right there on the spot.
And if she pulls her Hamlet routine during a debate, she will suffer the slings and arrows from her fellow Democrats.
Do you think a single candidate will let Kamala get away with her indecisive “let me get back to you tomorrow?”
Not on the likely.
Instead, this California Hamlet will get eaten alive.
