New in PJ Media:
Many observers have noted that the sudden revelations about Old Joe Biden’s storing classified documents in his garage indicate that the people who are really running President Dementia’s administration have grown tired of their frontman. Even the New York Times recently signaled that it was ready to move on from Joe with a more-in-sorrow-than-in-anger lamentation about how much the documents scandal damaged the superannuated president’s future prospects. But the same elites don’t seem to be exactly thrilled with Kamala Harris, either. The Washington Post confirmed that on Monday with an article entitled “Some Democrats are worried about Harris’s political prospects,” which means that it’s the Bezos Post that’s worried. The subtitle? “At a pivotal point in Biden’s term, many party activists are not sure the vice president has shown she is up to winning the top job.” Looks like it’s curtains for The Cackler.
The WaPo article opens with one Jacquelyn Bettadapur, who is presented as a Democrat mover and shaker in Georgia and who is “worried about the political prospects of the woman positioned to be President Biden’s heir — Vice President Harris.” But the real problem is (you guessed it!) those evil, unscrupulous, heartless Republicans who are always so ready, in the Left’s mythology, to “pounce” on the honest mistakes of every patriotic, hard-working, selfless, well-meaning Democrat: “People are poised to pounce on anything,” complains Bettadapur. “Any misstep, any gaffe, anything she says — and so she’s probably not getting the benefit of the doubt.”
Yeah, that’s Kamala Harris’ problem. Folks just aren’t giving her the benefit of the doubt. And the unfavorable coverage from the relentlessly Republican mainstream media doesn’t help. Democrats, Bettadapur continued, “don’t know enough about what she’s doing.” After laying it on that thick, the Post does give us one small hint that Harris’ problems may — just may – be self-inflicted. Bettadapur says: “It doesn’t help that she’s not adept as a communicator.” The Post softened this a bit by adding “that” in brackets before “adept,” but let’s have it straight. Bettadapur’s unedited words are more accurate: Harris is not adept as a communicator.
In fact, it’s even worse than that. In her two years as vice president, Harris has made it abundantly clear that she simply isn’t very bright. If you’re unconvinced of this, check out Harris expatiating upon the passage of time, or informing us that prices have gone up. Recall that in November 2021, Harris interrupted a NASA presenter who was discussing “climate adaptation strategies” to ask, “Can you, can you measure, um, trees?” By way of explanation, she plowed on: “‘Cause part of that data that you are referring to, and it’s in EJ, environmental justice — that you can also track by race their averages in terms of the number of trees in the neighborhood where people live.”
There is more. Read the rest here.
