Oh yeah, I smell a Democratic Cat Fight. It’s time the post-Trump political playground perks up because Joe Biden has been the snooze President.
Yawn since January; in fact, leave it up to the Right to spice things up because we sure can’t count on the Democrats. They are so consumed with exuding good feels and creating a blanket of warm and fuzzy acceptance that a noxiously bland pall of amorphous nothingness has formed in their presence. Featureless politics is what the Dems bring.
The relationship between the Bidens and Vice President Kamala Harris purportedly became messy after Harris — then Joe Biden’s opponent in the primary — came after him for his record on busing and his boasts of his relationships with segregationist senators, according to journalist Edward Isaac Dovere.
Time for those tell-all journalistic forays into attention whoredom to begin flooding the book market and put pious Biden in his place. President Trump’s mythos spawned many writing careers with that big bullseye plastered across his dome for 4 years.
Harris’ team told the then-candidate she “had to land hard on Biden” in the next debate, Dovere writes. Harris was apparently reluctant, as she’d developed a close relationship with the Biden family.
“She was searching for some way to condemn him for what he had said and done without attacking the man she liked and respected,” according to the book.
“I’m going to now direct this at Vice President Biden: I do not believe you are a racist, and I agree with you when you commit yourself to the importance of finding common ground,” she said at the June 2019 debate.
“But I also believe, and it’s personal – it was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two United States senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country. And it was not only that, but you also worked with them to oppose busing. And, you know, there was a little girl in California who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools, and she was bused to school every day. And that little girl was me,” Harris continued in a zealous moment that went viral and raised the then-California senator’s poll numbers significantly, if only for a brief period.
I love the sound of ripping sinew and ruptured tendons when they feast on their own.
“With what he cares about, what he fights for, what he’s committed to, you get up there and call him a racist without basis?” Jill Biden reportedly said of Harris on a phone call with close supporters a week later. “Go f— yourself.”
It’s that old dynamic of your bitter Primaries adversary inconveniently returning to bite you in the ass now that you’re on the same team. Not exactly an unknown phenomenon in politics but perpetually amusing.
Learning of Jill Biden’s angry appraisal of Kamala, I’m horribly amused.
Which leads to the unavoidable puzzle that we must pose: who would win the Jill versus Kamala battle?
Obviously Kamala has age and the indomitable passionate POC fierceness in her blood. I would put my money on her. At 69, Jill Biden’s lifelong white privilege, along with her wealthy physical complacency and softness places her at a distinct strategic and physical disadvantage.
Besides, Kamala is secretly a super heroine but we can’t let anyone know. The point of a super heroine is secrecy and anonymity. Super heroines surreptitiously pack a killer punch which you would never guess based on their staid exterior.
Can’t tame the Khan!
