Red-faced About Virginia Blackface Succession

The first time I heard of Dr. Ralph Northam was when a campaign ad hit the news during his recent run for governor of Virginia. The ad portrayed Northam’s Republican opponent Ed Gillespie as a racist pervert in a pickup truck  terrifying small children.

Next time I heard of the good doctor he was Governor Northam. And he was describing how a baby surviving a late term abortion would be kept comfortable while the parents and doctors decided its fate.

Then came the two guys in klan gear and blackface on his med school yearbook page. Followed by his moonwalk press conference and his confession that he dressed in blackface for a Michael Jackson dance contest. He says he won.

Red-faced

Red-faced Democratic elites called for his resignation. Until the next in line of succession, Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax, was accused of sexual assault. (Btw, he’s being represented by Brett Kavanaugh’s attorney while his accuser is represented by Christine Blasey Ford’s attorney.)

Anyway, next man up is Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring. Oops, more blackface.

Next in line? Virginia House Speaker Kirk Cox, a Republican

Trump offered relief for young immigrant “Dreamers” in exchange for for his wall. It was an appeal to the Democrat’s base but Pelosi wouldn’t bite. She wants Trump stuffed and mounted, if not devoured.

Meanwhile, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez has bigger fish to fry. She says climate change will kill us all in 12 years, so why are you worried about money.

Establishment Democrats seem more worried about her.

Ocasio-Cortez Dances Around Party Leadership

A star is born in the Democratic party and the leadership is worried. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has an agenda that calls for free college, free healthcare, and a 70% income tax on the wealthy. She also wants to totally eliminate fossil fuels as well as the party’s fossil leadership. And she has some nice dance moves.

The media can’t get enough of it.

The party’s millennial base has moved left. Too far left to to win elections fear its baby boom elders. “I certainly hope she’s not the future and I don’t believe she is,” says  Joe Lieberman.

AOC’s response, “New party, who dis?”

Politico’s Rachel Blade and Heather Caygle take a look at the party split here in “Exasperated Democrats try to rein in Ocasio-Cortez.”

Meanwhile, WSJ editor Gerard Baker thinks “she may be one of the most important political figures of our age.”

Trump’s Speech

President Trump’s speech from the oval office was short and sweet. He demanded five and a half billion for a border wall, or barrier, or something sticking out of the ground, but didn’t declare a national emergency.

Base Fear

Marc Theissen thought it was great. Trump reached out to Americans beyond his base.

But Chuck and Nancy thought otherwise. Nancy says the wall is immoral. Chuck said Trump used the oval office to manufacture a crisis. And they both looked stiff and uncomfortable.

Could be they were looking to reach beyond their base too.

The Democrats dispatched Marc Elias to oversee the Florida recount. The same guy the Hillary campaign hired to dispute Trump’s 2016 election win. And that gave us Fusion GPS and the dubious Steele Dossier.

Chad

Now he’s hoping to trigger a hand recount in Florida. And that’s something the WSJ says could become “hanging chads, the sequel.”
