Last night, Vice President Pence gave one hell of an amazing speech from Fort McHenry. If you haven’t seen it yet, you really should watch it. It stood in stark contrast to Democrat Vice Presidential nominee Kamala Harris’ own rather drab and underwhelming speech from last week. And apparently I’m not the only one who thought Kamala’s speech was a stinker. She must’ve thought so too because Kamala wanted a do-over.
And today, the Biden campaign and the Democrats gave it to her.
If that doesn’t tell you the Democrats are sweating bullets and pissing blood over how resoundingly successful the Republican National Convention has been thus far, I don’t know what will.
Now, Kamala’s do-over was billed as a “rebuttal” to President Trump’s acceptance speech. Which, if you’re keeping score at home hasn’t happened yet. So I’m not entirely sure who is stupid enough to buy this “It’s a rebuttal of the President” excuse.
Rebuttals by design happen after the thing they’re supposedly rebutting.
But it wasn’t a rebuttal; it was a do-over.
It’s a nervous, desperate Democrat Party wanting to give Kamala a second bite at the apple because her first attempt was a such dud it only made it crystal clear that Mike Pence towers over her rhetorically.
There’s a reason Kamala didn’t make it to Iowa.
She kinda stinks.
In her do-over, the divisive little harridan continued with the same dour, negative tone from last week’s Democratic National Convention.
America is racist. Black people have never been treated as fully human. Rah-rah “peaceful” protesters who have turned Democrat-run cities into smoldering ashes. We must stand by them as they burn cities to the ground because of injustice and stuff. And Trump is to blame for the Wuhan pandemic.
Which pretty much tells me that the Democrats, though terribly distraught over how successful the Republican convention has been compared to their awful outing, have no earthly idea how to reset the tone and offer something different.
Kamala’s do-over was just more of the same grievance and identity politics, more of the same empty platitudes, and more of the same America Sucks and only we can change it claptrap the Democrats peddled last week.
I mean, for Pete’s sake, if you’re going to get a do-over at least try a different freaking approach.
And, really? How does it look that the campaign put the bottom of the ticket out there to allegedly “rebut” the guy she isn’t even running against instead of Joe who actually is running against Trump? Did the campaign even think about that?
What’s the problem guys? Did the doctor say dosing up old Joe twice in one week is too dangerous? Or is one week not nearly enough time to prepare him to read off a teleprompter without drooling all over the lectern and wandering off?
Sending the second-stringer out there makes Joe look like a useless appendage and not like a man capable of being Chief Executive and Commander-in-Chief.
Kamala ostensibly “taking on Trump” while Joe remains in hiding only reaffirms most voters’ concerns that Joe is not up for the job.
It’s also startlingly dumb to think the woman who had to drop out of the race two months before Iowa because she was such a dud with Democrat voters is going to have any hope of swaying Independents, fence-sitters and wobbly Republicans. Especially when all she had to offer was more of the same garbage they spent their entire convention peddling.
If the first three nights are any indication, tonight Republicans will once again be offering optimism, patriotism, prosperity, heroism and hope.
Then President Trump will take the stage. And just like that, Kamala’s pitiful do-over will quickly fade from memory. Which, when you get right down to brass tacks, is exactly what happened after her first bite at the apple.
