The “B”s Have It — Biden, Bernie, Beto, Buttigieg

Today is the day we talk politics, more specifically, the Democrat Presidential Primary. We talk politics one day per week until the election.

[The Dem Convention is in Milwaukee on 13-16 July 2020 at Fiserv Forum. The first debate is in June 2019, only two months from now. The DNC has the campaign penciled in for a dozen debates though there were more than 40 in 2007-8 when Obama was vying for the nomination.]

The Joe Biden Hit

Job Biden, God love him, is the target of a political hit. Here’s Mr. Touchy-Feely in action with some woman I don’t recognize. He is, apparently, licking her ear while she fends him off with her hands.

Going out on a limb here, but the woman seems to be enjoying it. Possible? Oh, wait, it’s Nancy Pelosi. My bad. Sorry.

Pelosi Defends Biden: I Don’t Think the Accusations Are Disqualifying

Joe Biden is guilty of the most unforgivable crime in the current Democrat party — he is a moderate.

For that crime, he has been subjected to the dirty tricks of the Dem party, a bunch who knows something about dirty tricks (talking to you Dirty  Dossier).

In spite of being “off message” as it relates to the New Green Deal, abortion until third grade, open borders, amnesty, sanctuary cities, abolishing ICE, free education, reparations, and other Democrat shibboleths, Joe Biden still polls higher than any other candidate seeking the Democrat presidential nomination. How can anybody so “unwoke” be so damn strong at the polls?

It is for this reason Uncle Joe must be humbled and marginalized because he has the temerity to stand firmly in the middle of the road in a party that has lurched to the left, the hard left.

Biden has near universal name recognition earned by decades in the Senate representing MBNA (He used to be called the Senator from MBNA) and eight years as Vice President. His image was amiable, gaffe-prone, goofy, and a bit blue collar. He rode Amtrak and drank a beer.

He was never thought of as a predator until the #MeToo movement erupted. #MeToo is about powerful men — check, Biden is and has been powerful — using their power to shoplift inappropriate intimacies, like Harvey Weinstein. Joe Biden never ever whiffed such abuse, but the #MeToo politically weaponized crowd wants to take him out as if he were banging White House interns (or sharing cigars with them).

“No, thank you. I don’t smoke.”

The Dems — clever folks who are not beyond trashing anybody for a middle school birthday party prank — have gone all in on Joe’s behavior. Specifically, he stands accused of being an Irish raconteur who is prone to a kiss, a hug, a squeeze, a slap on the back, and a sniff of somebody’s hair. Clearly, these are predatory actions that should be punishable by…………………………………………………………..death.  Well, at least, the death of his political ambition, no?

Please ignore the fact that former Vice President Joe Biden is the only candidate who has been part of a winning presidential team or that he has served in the Senate since the Holy Ghost was a corporal or that he was Vice President to President Barack H Obama. None of that matters (well, it would if you were “hiring” a president).

No, Joe suffers from being Old School at a time when the Dems exalt ideas like the New Green Deal that have zero chance of ever becoming policy and want to control the White House up until the year in which the Earth is destroyed unless the NGD is enacted.

[Look, I am confused as to whether we have 12 years remaining or 10. I lived through Al Gore’s deadline, I counted polar bears, I measured arctic ice, but I am confused as to AOC’s and Beto’s deadline. Forgive me.]

Joe, on the other hand, has a sense of humor — something missing from the Millenial psyche which is focused on the angst of AOC, the skateboard skill of Robbie Francis O’Rourke, or the languages of Mayor Pete Boot-Edge-Edge. [See what your Big Red Car did for you — that’s how you pronounce the guy’s name.]

No, this thing with with Creepy Joe is just a hit. They don’t want to say, “Old white guy, get out the way for the Millenials” so they run this con about handsy Joe.

Biden is just an Old School Irish pol without an ounce of lust in his heart.

Still, the Dems take him out like a Mafia hit. Count on it. Joe will be humiliated and driven away with wailing and gnashing of teeth because he’s an old white dude. Sorry, Joe.

But, what the Hell do I really know anyway? I’m just a Big Red Car. Great weekend awaits you. Call your mothers or fathers. Please. It takes so desperately little to make your parents happy.

Modern Monetary Theory v Magic Money Tree

So, your Big Red Car is taking a break from the NCAA Championship and was reading an excellent article on MMT (Modern Monetary Theory) on Bloomberg Businessweek.

MMT is, of course, the economic theory upon which folks like Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez base the idea that the government can afford all the things in her Green New Deal.

Political Campaigns as Art — Feeling the Bern, Talk Bernie to Me, Baby!

Big Red Car here enjoying the final throes of the South Carolina campaign.

It is a time of high drama, emotion, and ………………………………..POLITICAL ART.

Art encapsulates all that drama and emotion and delivers it to our senses as visual and audio art. There is the combination of this as a damn good video.

Are you feeling it, America? Cause the Big Red Car is, baby. Oh yeah!

Bernie v Hillary = When Ancient Battled Vintage?

Big Red Car here in the gray hours before the dawn contemplating the spectacle that was the Democrat debate in Milwaukee last night.

The next primary is in South Carolina, so let’s have a debate in…………………………………………..Milwaukee. How about Columbia, Charleston, Greenville, Myrtle Beach? Huh?

The Big Red Car finds it odd that the progressive banner is being fought over by an ancient 74-year old white man and a vintage 69-year old white woman.

Talk about “old wine in new bottle”, eh?

But, there was some interesting observations made which bear acknowledging and commentary.

You go, girl!

Right?

Not so fast, Big Red Car. Not so damn fast.

Let’s look at the numbers, please.

May I have the envelope?
