Kamala Harris

OMG—TV Art Has Imitated Life

Featured image I have never watched a single episode of “Veep” on HBO, though I have heard it is excellent, and moreover that it presaged the banality of our actual vice president, Kamala Harris. And the Daily Show, of all places, has stepped up with “Veep” clips applied to Harris (a sign that Hollywood realizes Harris can’t be elected president). Here’s the Sky News account and excerpt: Here’s how the Daily Show »

On Hurricane Ian

Featured image Hurricane Ian is moving up the Atlantic seaboard and apparently passing into history. It was tremendously destructive as it hit the Gulf coast of Florida, and Democrats didn’t even wait for the hurricane to make landfall before politicizing it. Democrats hope Ian will bring down, or at least put a chink in the armor of, the heretofore invincible Ron DeSantis. But I am confused: didn’t we learn during Katrina that »

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 »

The GOP Learning How to Fight (Updated)

Featured image When I first saw a NY Times headline yesterday that read “This Jellyfish Can Live Forever,” I thought it was about Republican office holders. But no, it refers to the real ocean-going invertebrates passively borne along by the currents, though it is easy to see how one might be misled, since this oceanographic description applies fully to Beltway Republicans so much of the time. And when I saw the headline that »

Abbott refutes Harris

Featured image FOX News reports: “2 migrant buses arrive outside Vice President Kamala Harris’ Naval Observatory residence in DC.” Subhead: “Between 75 and 100 migrants who were picked up in Eagle Pass, Texas, were sent by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.” Video is posted with the story. In her Meet the Press interview this past Sunday, Harris asserted twice that “the border is secure.” Governor Abbott has thus refuted Harris. Readers of The »

Bordering on insanity

Featured image The Biden administration’s happy talk on border security is at least equal to it’s happy talk on inflation in its absurd denial of reality. I took a pass at Vice President Harris’s performance in her Meet the Press interview here on Monday. Media Research Center’s Tim Graham did better than I did in his comments on Sean Spicer’s Newsmax show (video below). Graham was joined in the segment by Ben »

“The border is secure”

Featured image You may not have heard recently that “the border is secure.”   It was one of the assertions embedded in the incoherent verbal rambling with which Vice President Kamala Harris responded to the question posed by Chuck Todd in the interview broadcast on Meet the Press yesterday.  NewsBusters has posted the video excerpt below along with its story and the accompanying transcript cruelly documenting the exchange. Harris’s rambling belongs in our »

Is 52 the Magic Number?

Featured image On Meet the Press this morning, Kamala Harris said that if the Democrats pick up two Senate seats in the midterms, they will abolish the filibuster, at least selectively. The two additional seats, plus Harris’s own tie-breaker, will be needed to offset the votes of Senators Manchin and Sinema so as to create a majority in favor of altering Senate rules: Harris said, “In less than two months, we are »

Kamala’s Word-Salad-Shooter Strikes Again

Featured image Listeners of the Saturday podcast will know that we have a competition under way to come up with the best dressing for a Kamala Harris Word Salad. My first cut: A thick tofu-based topping, featuring saccharin-infused molasses, oleomargarine (in place of Olive oil), turmeric, St. John’s wart, and malt vinegar. Meanwhile, Kamala has tossed another classic word salad, this time down at the aborted launch of NASA’s Artemis 1. Scroll to »

Kamala Harris, Space Oddity

Featured image I used to think that the most absurd collected quote book was The Quotable Kofi Annan, which the UN put out in 2003. It contained gems such as, “To make sure that the intergovernmental machinery has the support it deserves, we must also make sure that the United Nations Secretariat is much more nimble and responsive to changing needs.” With profundity like that, we know that we are in the »

Who was that masked woman?

Featured image John posted a video clip of Kamala Harris doing her thing yesterday in “These people are crazy.” Like John, I was mystified by Harris’s description of her attire in addition to her recitation of personal pronouns. Searching (so far unsuccessfully) for the White House text of President Biden’s unblinking remarks to the NOBLE group yesterday, I came across the text of Harris’s remarks here. Harris was observing the anniversary of »

These People Are Crazy

Featured image Kamala Harris hosted some kind of event earlier today. Several mask-wearing (why?) women participated. As is now common in gatherings of liberals, they began the meeting by introducing themselves and stating their pronouns. And, weirdly, by describing themselves–their hair color, the dresses they were wearing, whatever. This might possibly make sense if it were a meeting of blind people, otherwise not. Utterly bizarre. Here is Kamala: VP: "I am Kamala »

New Hampshire Dems Say: Go Away, Joe!

Featured image This Granite State Poll, conducted by the University of New Hampshire, is one of the more remarkable sets of survey data I have ever seen. UNH surveyed New Hampshire Democrats who are likely to vote in the 2024 presidential primary. The result? Joe Biden finished second with 16%, a shockingly low total for a sitting president less than halfway through his term. Pete Buttigieg came out on top with 17%. »

Will Dems Dump Biden *Before* November?

Featured image Even out in the middle of the Atlantic, where internet access is slow and hard to come by, the two bombshell New York Times articles that tacitly declare that It’s Over for Joe Biden managed to get through. Let me say, first, that Power Line was here first. Nought but two weeks ago I laid out the “three-part pincer movement” that Democrats were ramping up to force Biden out of »

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 »

A New Cringe Achievement Level for Harris

Featured image Did you know, Joy, that I had great joy, Joy, over the joy of watching Ketanji Brown-Jackson joyfully show how smart she is? Behold, our madam Vice President in action as she turns up her cringe capacity past 11. (This video is only 1:30 long, but it seems so much longer): Never mind how then-Senator Harris behaved in Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings, insinuating that she had some scandalous “secret” internal »
