The face of the left since Trump’s election has been angry, twisted, froth-flecked and reactionary, and the media seconded that emotion, calling thugs destroying property “patriotic dissenters.”
But you can almost hear and smell the hamster wheels inside the head of the dope that put together last night’s response address –
“Trump is angry, reactionary and twisted. We need a message that contrasts. What else is Trump? He’s inexperienced! That’s it. If we get a calm, experienced democrat to rebut the unhinged, angry Trump, the people will begin to see this contrast.
Do we have a calm, hinged, experience democrat?”
The producers recruited a household name, whose name escapes me right now, but I’m sure they know it in his household. He was the former governor of Kentucky… I think, and a guy that Lifezette quipped, “has no political future.”
He sat in a diner, surrounded by nothing but white folk (the left just hadda love those optics) and homespun a tale of the good old days when democrats were in power. Then they all had a nice piece of peach cobbler and went to whittlin’.
This was more of an update from the pasture than a fierce rebuttal.
The lasting memory of this failed response is that Trump outsmarted everyone once again.
He was the calm, hinged, healing statesman, and he sounded like he’s been doing this for years, giving much of the television audience the feeling that we are in good hands. This made the guy in the response look like a loon when he talked about derision and division.
Did he not see Trump open with a call for unity, a message threaded throughout his address?
In this piece from Lifezette, a lefty is reported to have said, “it’s a sad time to be a democrat.”
