Veep thoughts with Kamala Harris

Featured image The point of this series — and I do have one — is to invite the kind of derision of Democrats that the Democrat/media establishment routinely inflicts on their political opponents (though without the justification). Raygun! Bushitler! It’s almost enough to make a sane person doubt the Trump-Hitler hysteria as just a little over the top. By contrast, Joe Biden visibly deteriorates before our eyes. Kamala Harris is a bona »

Veep thoughts with Kamala Harris

Featured image We could ignore Vice President Kamala Harris’s latest contribution to the little red book of Veep Thoughts we are compiling, but it would be wrong. Defying the degree of difficulty, she just keeps topping herself. Arriving on the scene of the Highland Park mass shooting yesterday, Harris met the moment with another masterpiece of vacuity. The volume is a little low on the audio (below). Here it is in black »

Veep thoughts by Kamala Harris

Featured image The star of this series sat down for an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash yesterday. CNN has posted the 10-minute video here. Kyle Smith extracts the quotable quotes in his New York Post column today. It is full of material to be memorialized in a little red book akin to Quotations From Chairman LBJ. Smith works to explicate the material in this interview. Bash’s interview focused on the subject of »

Veep thoughts with Kamala Harris

Featured image Vice President Harris at Children’s Hospital in Washington, D.C. yesterday. The White House has posted the transcript under the heading “Remarks by Vice President Harris on Mental Health and Wellness.” Harris takes a detour from the subject to “provid[e] an update about the infant formula shortage” at the top of her remarks. The whole thing is baby formula for adults. Long story short, in the words of the old bumper »

Veep thoughts by Kamala Harris

Featured image The White House has posted a “Statement by Kamala Harris” on Justice Alito’s leaked draft Dobbs opinion. Here it is in its entirety: The United States Supreme Court has now confirmed that the draft opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade is genuine. Roe ensures a woman’s right to choose to have an abortion. It also, at its root, protects the fundamental right to privacy. What is clear is that »

Veep thoughts by Kamala Harris

Featured image This past Wednesday Kamala Harris welcomed Prime Minister Andrew “not his holiness” Holness of Jamaica to the Vice President’s Ceremonial Office in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. The White House has posted the transcript here and the video on YouTube here. To adapt Jackson Browne’s beautiful song to Harris’s performance, “Jamaica, say you will help me find a way to fill these empty words.” Or perhaps, “Jamaica, say you will »

Veep thoughts by Kamala Harris

Featured image Vice President Harris meditated on “the significance of the passage of time” four times in less than 30 seconds during her remarks following an event in Louisiana yesterday. Harris was promoting the federal gusher of money to support high-speed Internet access in small town America. To adapt Oscar Wilde’s adage about the death of Little Nell, one must have a heart of stone to listen to Harris’s meditations without cackling. »

Deep Veep Kamala Channels Heidegger?

Featured image I have no doubt that time is of major philosophical and human importance, but I draw the line at Vice President Harris attempting her own rendition of Being and Time: One thing I know: Time is moving all too slowly right now, as I look at the calendar and realize we still have more than two years of the Biden-Harris mistake. Is there any way to speed up these slow-moving »

Veep thoughts by Kamala Harris

Featured image Roger Kimball covered Vice President Harris’s tragicomic sojourn in Eastern Europe last week in his weekend Spectator column. We last checked in with Harris at Thursday’s press conference with the Polish president. On Friday, Harris moved on from Poland to Romania for another press conference, this time with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis. The White House has posted the transcript of Harris’s remarks here. A reporter posed this not exactly shocking »

Veep thoughts by Kamala Harris

Featured image The Biden administration called on the talents of Vice President Kamala Harris to work their wonders in the Ukraine crisis. What were the parties responsible for her mission to Poland President Andrzej Duda in Warsaw yesterday “thinking”? I’ll have to circle back to you on that. Harris responded with a bout of fake laughter when asked about Ukrainian refugees (video below). The New York Post quotes the comment of Iulia »

Veep thoughts by Kamala Harris

Featured image Is it possible to imagine the treatment Kamala Harris would receive if she were a conservative Republican rather than a ludicrous leftist dolt? She might be laughed out of public life. She might be mocked into oblivion. I’m pretty sure she would not have ascended to the position that is proverbially one-heartbeat-away from succession to the 79–year-old Dementia Joe. As it is, the reality may be beyond satire. NBC asks »

Veep thoughts by Kamala Harris

Featured image Vice President Kamala Harris explained the Russia-Ukraine conflict “in layman’s terms for people who don’t understand what’s going on and how can this directly affect the people of the United States” during a segment on 93.9 WKYS’s The Morning Hustle yesterday (video below, whole thing here). WKSY holds itself out as “DC’s Source For What’s Hot In The Hip Hop Community With The Best Radio, Local News, Events And Insider »

Veep thoughts by Kamala Harris

Featured image The Washington Free Beacon has compiled a few Quotations From Chairwoman Kamala and given them the Deep Thoughts production befitting the wisdom of Jack Handey or the Daily Affirmations of Stuart Smalley. Is it possible to think of the treatment Kamala Harris would receive if she were a conservative Republican rather than a ludicrous leftist dolt? She might be laughed out of public life. She might be mocked into oblivion. »

The Week in Pictures: Brandon for Veep Edition

Featured image It’s obvious that if Trump runs again in 2024, he should name “Brandon” as his running mate, so rally crowds can yell “Let’s go Brandon!” This is better than shouting the vernacular version, and the media will be totally flummoxed having to explain it over and over again. Meanwhile, did Facebook have the worst week ever, or what? Headlines of the week:     And finally. . .   »

Joltin’ Joe’s memory, veep edition

Featured image Following up on Daniel Pipes’s satirical suggestion of help for Joe Biden, Biden’s staff appears to have provided him a script for yesterday’s phone call to Kamala Harris. The Federalist’s Tristan Justice provides an account including Sean Davis’s tweet immediately below. Biden's staff had to write a script for him so he'd know why he was even talking to Kamala Harris. "I'm calling you today because…" pic.twitter.com/9iUMnVzmtZ — Sean Davis »

What to watch for in tonight’s Veep debate

Featured image I don’t believe a vice presidential debate has ever influenced the outcome of an election. The most consequential ones have, however, stopped the bleeding afterthe presidential candidate flopped in his first debate. Vice President Cheney’s performance against John Edwards in 2004 is the best example. But one could also cite George H.W. Bush in 1984 (against Geraldine Ferraro) and perhaps Joe Biden in 2012 (against Paul Ryan). Donald Trump flopped »

The Veep Debate: How Did It Go? A Poll

Featured image My only comment about tonight’s debate: remember when lots of conservatives were hoping that Paul Ryan and others would get into the race so that we could have a strong, effective, conservative candidate rather than the weak Mitt Romney? Right. Here is the poll; how did tonight’s debate go? UPDATE: I thought Paul Ryan’s performance was highly disappointing. He came across as weak and submissive. There were many opportunities for »
