The Morning After: Democratic Party Meltdown?

Democrats were clobbered in the off year election yesterday, but the annihilation was near total in Kentucky. Great catch by Mollie Hemingway over at The Federalist of the Democratic House Speaker Greg Stumbo stumbling through some incoherent and downright bizarre remarks about how to think about the Democrats’ wipeout. Below is the entire six-minutes of this meltdown, but the highlights include Stumbo trying to decide whether Jesus was a Democrat, and concluding, finally, that the answer must be Yes:

“And the other thing I know is that if in fact the Bible is a book of parables, like I believe it is, think about this: Mary did not ride an elephant into Bethlehem that night.”

But the best is at the very end:

“I believe there’s a horse out there. Not American Pharoah. It’s an Arkansas Traveler. And that horse is bringing a lady jockey and that horse and that jockey are going to come to Kentucky next year and help us rebuild this party.”

I suspect Hillary will be about as welcome in Kentucky as an EPA bureaucrat at a coal mine. In fact, if she does turn up in the Bluegrass state, I hope she’ll face a protest from a new pressure group, “Black Coal Matters.”
