The Future of the Democrats

I just saw on TV this young fellow, a mayor from Indiana who is running for Chair of the DNC. He’s precisely what we need: young, energetic, competent at winning in a deep-red region, and saying the words people want to hear. “Democratic values, we are the party of families” – he’s at least trying to define a message other than “We are not as bad as Republicans.”

The interview with the interesting young mayor was cut short because there was an urgent need to put on the dumb freak Caitlin Jenner who is now upset with Trump after passionately supporting him two minutes earlier. And this is why I hate TV news. They put actual, serious politicians on the same plane with tabloid characters and then go, “What?? Trump won? Incredible . . .”

One thought on “The Future of the Democrats

  1. A New York Times report this morning states that while the Democrats were split between trying to work with Trump and opposition after the election, pressure from the Left and his cabinet appointments have pushed them into acceptance of all out war against him. They want to do to Trump what the Tea Party did to Obama.
