If I understand correctly, Tim Kaine was so bad at the VP debate last night that even the Democrat-Media Complex is admitting he was terrible. (It’s OK for them to say a Republican won a meaningless debate; let’s them keep that fig leaf that they’re free of bias.)
What Tim Kaine did last night… the constant interruptions, the clownish demagoguery, the rehearsed attack lines, the unhinged ranting, 21 outright lies … a lot of people were comparing his obnoxious behavior to Jerome from Gotham. Mike Pence, on the other hand, was playing the part of the serious politician giving his rehearsed answers like a reasonable grown-up.
Here’s the thing though, this is no longer a country that elects reasonable, adult politicians to the office of president. In 2012, the Republicans nominated a very reasonable adult with a record of solving the problems of large organizations. He lost because the Democrats were so successful in launching a waves of childish attacks on him. Mitt Romney tortured his family dog! Mitt Romney wants to put women in binders! Mitt Romney wants to outlaw tampons!
The stupid, childish attacks worked. And thus did America become an Idiocracy.
Tim Kaine not letting Mike Pence finish a sentence is straight out of the social justice warrior handbook; as seen when they refuse to let conservatives speak on college campuses. Tim Kaine’s use of straw men and dishonest talking points has been part of the Democrat playbook going back at least to Bill Clinton. He even through the transgendered’s a bone by referring himself as Hillary’s “right-hand person.”
Democrats will always lose an honest policy debate because they’re policies always … always … fail. (You’ll notice how Hillary isn’t talking very much about Obamacare on the campaign trail.) They have to make elections about name-calling and personal attacks because if elections become about agendas and Governing philosophies, Democrats lose.
And so, elections degenerate into name-calling and feigned outrage from zoftig beauty pageant winners. This is pure Idiocracy.
Voters that reward gutter politicians by electing them to office have no cause to complain about gutter politics.
