"Folks, if you voted for Democrats this time around, I suggest you review your bidding. The new Democrats are not even close to being qualified to lead. Or to govern. Or anything. We need the adults back in charge, and soon."

It has been said many times by many people much smarter than I, that if John F. Kennedy were alive today, he would be either a conservative Democrat or a moderate Republican. That is how much the Democrat party has devolved in the past 60 years. That led me to thinking about our own Minnesota Senator from yesteryear - Paul Wellstone. How would he be viewed today?
Years ago when I was a road warrior, I would often fly back home on the 5:20 pm NWA flight. Some of the time, Senator Wellstone was also on that flight, as his work in DC was done for the week. Most of the team I traveled with got to know the Senator. Most of my team were moderate to conservative, so there was nothing really in common with Senator Wellstone. That is, except we all cared for our home state of Minnesota. Plus - putting politics aside, he was very engaging. A nice guy.
There is one thing I did admire about him politically. Even though we agreed on practically nothing, his views seldom if ever, changed. His views yesterday were the same as today, and would probably be the same tomorrow. Now contrast that with the Clown Car who runs the Democrat Party today. For example, what is their position on the wall? Depends on what year you ask them. Seems like they all were in favor of it at some time. Now they are death on it. There are many other issues they are also fickle on.
I wonder how Senator Wellstone, who was Jewish, would react to the recent addition of anti-Semite nut balls who were just sworn in. Heck, one is from Minnesota. So much for the "big tent" on the Left. How would he like dealing with these young and dumb ones who think we should become another Sweden?Just because some professor told AOC that it would be "cool" to live there.
No, I think if Paul Wellstone were alive today and still in the Senate, he might look more moderate than progressive. Heck, even the nut ball Hillary is looking moderate compared to this new crop we now have.
That led me to some serious thinking. If this one time firebrand, Paul Wellstone, would look somewhat normal compared to what we have today, and if this trend continues, what will the Democrats look like in twenty years? Will they be run by Antifa? Or worse?
Folks, if you voted for Democrats this time around, I suggest you review your bidding. The new Democrats are not even close to being qualified to lead. Or to govern. Or anything. We need the adults back in charge, and soon. 2020 cannot come soon enough. In fact, the damage this crew might do before 2020 might be irreversible.
