Elizabeth Warren For President!

Scott has been mischievously promoting Keith Ellison to head the DNC. In the same spirit, I enthusiastically endorse Elizabeth Warren as the new face of the Democratic Party. The consensus is that Mitch McConnell’s “silencing” of Warren–we can only dream!–per Senate Rule 19 was a mistake because it cemented Warren’s role as the Democrats’ most visible spokesman. But let’s look on the bright side: Warren combines Hillary Clinton’s likability with Bernie Sanders’ sensible policy prescriptions, and adds to the mix her own unique dishonesty and hypocrisy.

Warren’s attack on Jeff Sessions was dishonest. She knows he is no racist. The Young Cons point out this “Governmental Award of Excellence” that the NAACP presented to Senator Sessions “for the outstanding work you do.”

Warren’s status as a fake Indian will dog her forever, too. Dana Loesch, who unlike Warren is actually part Indian, unloaded on her:

I think it’s hysterical that this woman, who is a cultural appropriator, who is a race appropriator, that she has the audacity to engage in some sort of race-based attack against someone simply because she doesn’t like their party affiliation and doesn’t wish to see them confirmed to be AG. And I’ll tell you this, the closest that her ancestors ever came to American Indians was rounding up my ancestors, so let’s get that straight right now if anyone wants to have a discussion on what is or is not racist.

I’ll reiterate that so the folks at Media Matters, for whom we pay the bills over there, so they can get it right. She’s a racist who appropriated an entire ethnicity so that she could get a job at Harvard. She’s a racist hypocrite. Democrats, and particularly all these anti-gun people, need to stop making excuses for the original Rachel Dolezal.

Fauxcahontas for president! With her and Keith Ellison leading the Democrats, how can they go wrong?

Elizabeth Warren for President? President of what? A United States? There is no such thing. It no longer is united. Left is left, and Right is right, and perhaps never again shall the twain meet.

The only question is whether the Left's gambit that it can excommunicate a powerless Right, a Right that is not actually powerless, cascades into disaster. Probably not--what will happen is that the Left will get a lot of what it wants at a practical level, while being discredited as a bunch of imperious bullies. But this requires a lot of folks to put up with a lot of bs from the Left between now and then, and I have no idea if people will. After all, I didn't predict the Tea Party actually ever happening , so I do understand that I don't forecast preference cascades that well. I will say that if the Left continues to make it up out of whole cloth, like they have just done in regards to the travel ban, then I in fact would be suprised if a preference cascade does not happen. But who knows.
