Harris Is Done
[Comments enabled]

Tulsi Gabbard did what hadn't been done to any candidate yet in the debate the other night: She bent Kamala Harris over the lectern and butt-raped her from behind.

It was one of the most-brutal moments in political TV I've ever seen -- far worse than "you'd be in prison" (Trump's infamous line aimed at Hillary, and quite-possibly one that cost her the election.)

The format of that shot -- that Kamala had put 1,500 people into prison for marijuana offenses while she personally laughed about smoking weed -- was a gob-smack to the face, and one Harris had no response to.  That's because there isn't one and anything she tried was just likely to dig the hole deeper.

But it's not just that single instance that is going to haunt her should she be the DNC candidate -- and for that reason she won't be.

Harris has a long history of screwing people as a prosecutor, but that screwing is not equal-opportunity.  That's a record she cannot get away from and it will be exploited by Trump should she be the nominee.  Worse, since the data is public there's nothing Harris can do about it being trotted out in facts and figures either.

The poll data says she got hammered by this, but it's only the beginning.  This will NOT to go away -- and in fact it'll get much worse, because as the field narrows, and it will (probably by close to half within the next month) she's the one to knock off in order to stay relevant and "alive" in the game.  I suspect Harris thinks her race gives her some sort of cover, but that's not going to work out for her -- with Cummings' wife now the subject of a formal IRS complaint alleging corruption in how she runs her non-profit, along with the general collapse of the power of the "RACIST!" scream, having been used as a smear to the point that it now evokes chuckles instead of horror, Kamala really has no remaining space in which to fight.

When you get down to it this is one of the big problems with having a long record in government.  If you truly did well over that time it can help you quite a bit.  However, everyone you screwed comes after you when you aspire to a higher office, so the bad things multiply like rabbits.

I have a prediction: It is merely a matter of time before the attacks really take off, and in the "MeToo" world the risk is that she gets painted as not only a hypocrite (bad enough) but worse, intentionally malevolent with the only reason she has a political career at all is that she literally sucked and ****ed her way both into her original position and through several levels of advancement, despite her malevolent and evil predisposition.

Just wait until someone comes up with the racial bias involved in all the people she put in prison for marijuana and starts running ads of her meme'd up arguing in court for a prison sentence as a black dude sits in the dock while she has a big fat, lit spliff hanging out of her mouth, perhaps with Willie Brown doing her from behind.  You know it's gonna happen, the factual data to support it is there, and it's merely a matter of time before she gets literally branded in this regard.

Gabbard has the bonus of being a person of mixed ancestry. That allows her to attack Harris with impunity.

I <kind of> like Gabbard.

Obama didn't have a record which what made him a great candidate for the system. Mayor Pete is Obama 2.O this time Gay instead of black with some very light military service thrown in. Speaking of long records I remember in 1988 when Biden was a plagiarist and lied about his academic standing and was considered an empty suit not fit to be president, this being before he was reinvented as a wise elder statesman, perfect as V.P. for Obama. Records sometimes have a way of being forgotten or over looked by the media for the right person.

@Flappingeagle, been a while since we had a genuine voice for antiwar. With Ron Paul we were able to coalition or dialog with Cindy Sheehan, Cynthia McKinney, Kucinich, Gravel, all people up upstanding character and conviction.

There's nobody even close to the GOP that can do this at present. Except maybe Rand but he's just putting in the years required to reach elder statesman status. No incentive for him to get that mud on his oxfords. Or pennyloafers. Whatever he's wearing these days. Probably flip flops at home. Texans.

In the world of the lesser evil I'll take Gabbard any day over Harris. Have heard lots of people saying Harris is the one to beat. Then again those same people were saying that about Jeb around this time in 2015. I'm waiting for the announced candidates to burn each other down leaving an opening for old Cankles to jump back in.

I am amazed anyone would take Harris seriously. California has 40 million people and there must be a few million that should be Senator and at least half the lawyers in the state that should be AG over this loser. Whether you like him or not, Harris was behind the smear lie campaign against Kavanaugh. What a 54 year old man might or might not have done when he was 17 years old has little bearings on qualifications, especially when you consider his behavior as an adult dispels the notion it ever happened. had this been, Bill Clinton, there would have been at least a hint of evidence. The woman made it up and Harris knew it.

Anyone paying attention, what this campaign should be about is solving problems, not inventing them and pursuing policies to make sure they get worse. As long as the laws are what they are, people coming over the border are a problem, for us and the people coming over the border. If they want people to be able to migrate from Mexico and south, designate a number and form a line. Build a barrier to stop them. Figure out who needs to stay that is already here and get the rest out. Don't fool around for 30 years so the politicians can raise money and do nothing. The same is true of wars we enter with no exit.

People like Harris are dangerous. She is where she is because of how she looks, not because of qualifications. I'm sure she will push the socialist line, because she is a CA Democrat star. Look at the perceived richest state in the union becoming a third world country.

Gabbard might be the only Democrat running that wouldn't make me consider leaving the country, should she win. I'm sure she is a leftist, or she wouldn't be in that party. Socialism is a dangerous path and should it succeed, more people will die than if they didn't have health coverage. Take a look at Baltimore or Detroit and that is what you get when solutions are created by leftists. Baltimore wouldn't be any worse, if they never sent a penny. Go to the store and find the most inferior products on the shelf. That is what you will get, should it be on the shelf at all. There is no better argument for having a 2nd amendment.

Biden is a ****ing idiot to the nth degree.

Biden campaign says he 'misspoke' by saying 'poor kids are just as bright and talented as white kids'

You can't go to a 7-11 without an Indian accent.

this is the logic that Harris used, the "it's just my job," mentality. there is no calling to represent the law in one's own personal behavior. she fell for a mental trick that attorneys must do which is that it is just a game with justice as an outcome. if the rules (laws) are written correctly, then following them leads to justice. the safety for all attorneys is following their code of ethics and behavior, but for a prosecutor there must be a personal belief in the law to prevent blackmail and corruption, being above the law, which leads to potential serious injustices.

here is a similar, equally disgusting example. note that the position of prosecutor or cop can easily evolve into being above the law:

i'm not trying to push political views here, but if you haven't, do yourself a favor and check out some info on Tulsi. the joe rogan interview shows how cool she is. she's someone you could sit back and drink a beer with. the way she took down harris is just a preview of her strength and confidence.

she's:
1) anti-interventionist and would rather spend that $ here at home vs plundering it abroad
2) anti-war on drugs
3) would legalize prostitution
4) doesnt play identity politics or even talk about the fact that she is a woman
5) actually served in the military
6) is very anti-establishment when it comes to DC politics
7) anti-big tech and their monopolistic control over speech
8) is for strong and secure borders albeit in the context of immigration reform
9) wont take $ from PACs, completely individual driven campaign

i only mention her because she is probably way more republican than most people that call themselves republicans and isn't getting any attention because of the corrupt DNC.

of course no candidate will be perfectly aligned with all of your views/values, but she's worth considering given all the other wackos that we might get stuck with. KD can elaborate if there are any deal breakers that he sees coming out from her.

i dont think i could survive another 4 years with trump/biden/harris/warren...

I see plenty actually.

The one that would lead me to declare secession instantly is gun control; she will confiscate weapons and magazines under threat of being shot, for openers, along with zero-due-process "Red Flag" laws.

**** her; without the 2nd Amendment the rest doesn't matter.

Oh, and she wants to turn all the DACA people into citizens. Every one of them.

She also wants unlimited high-skill "immigration", which will destroy what's left of our STEM graduates.

She supports Medicare For All, but neither she or anyone else can fund it. She has not said ONE WORD about breaking the medical monopolies or putting anyone in prison for violating 100+ year old law.

AND she trades on her military service while ****ting all over the Constitution, which is outrageous.

**** her.
