Well, the Democratic National Convention has been … interesting.
So far the capper has been Bill Clinton finger-wagging at Donald Trump regarding how the Oval Office should be treated:
“At a time like this, the Oval Office should be a command center. Instead, it’s a storm center. There’s only chaos. Just one thing never changes — his determination to deny responsibility and shift the blame. The buck never stops there.”
~Bill Clinton, address to the DNC 18 AUG 2020
Goodness. It’s not like his famous quote: “I’m going to say this again: I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.” was a determination to deny responsibility.
His other famous quote — to a Grand Jury, attempting to do … something … with the blame — is even more famous: “That depends on what the meaning of ‘is’ is.”
And I’d like to know just who signed off on a speech regarding how the Oval Office should be treated by the former President who used a 20-year-old female intern as a cigar humidor.
Really, folks? This was a good idea?
It’s a maxim that mockery ends political campaigns. You can survive scandals, — hell, you can even drown a woman in a car — and go on to have a lengthy political career; but the moment you become a laughing-stock you’re done.
I’d say that someone needs to point out to the “Progressives” that if the jokes write themselves regarding your convention and your candidates, things might be a little rocky; but, as Le Petit Caporal once allegedly said, “Never interfere with your enemy when he is making a mistake.”
Ah, well. At least the memes coming out of the Democratic National Convention should be brutal.
Carry on, “Progressives”.
