It is conventional wisdom right now that Gavin Newsom is the savior of the Democrats if Biden drops out, and it is also no secret among California Democrats that Newsom and Kamala Harris hate each other, but each perceives the other as an obstacle to their political ambitions. But its seems there’s something in the water in San Francisco that made them both blithering idiots.

When a reporter asked Gov. Newsom about what wider lessons might be learned from government moving this quickly, Newsom responded with this Kamala-grade word salad:

Seems to me what the world needs now is a Venn diagram of Newsom/Harris word salads. Incidentally, I got to wondering about Newsom’s fragment toward the end about “a mirror of your consistent thoughts.” That can’t be original, I thought. Sure enough: it is a Tony Robbins cliche.
