Why Warren won’t win

‘Kickass women win’: Warren makes case to Iowans why she can beat Trump

It just doesn’t ring right, does it? A 71 year old law professor kicking ass? And how?

  1. I am astonished that someone whose entire career is based on a false claim of special victim status (ethnic) is being taken seriously as a candidate.

    In fairness to Fauxcahontas, the claim wasn’t entirely “false”. It was something like 0.09765625% true that she has American Indian heritage. The fact that this is less than the amount of American Indian heritage in the general population is a bit of a bummer, obviously, but then again that is clearly racism.

  3. Sanders appears well ahead in both Iowa and New Hampshire. A Trump vs Sanders election would be a hoot. Capitalism vs Socialism. Trump would win a mile. The wailing and gnashing of teeth from all the right people that that would entail is a joy to look forward to.

    Actually it’s not guaranteed that Trump would win a T vs. S election. Some of the rich on the coasts might change sides, but in 2016 the polls firmly showed that Saunders would have won if he had the nomination. The point to note is that the swing vote tends to go to the side that is in favour of change. This was one of the reasons why Trump won, many of the Obama change voters chose him over the Hillary “the change people want is a woman in charge” (nope, turns out not to be the change they wanted). The polling this time round seems unclear.

    After the DNC got its fingers burned over the Hilary debacle and seems to be playing a relatively straight bat up to now (OK, they seem to be rigging it to keep Yang and Gabbard out of the debates) I really can’t see them allowing Bernie through. Their super delegates are there for that very reason.

  7. Ken,

    Well if you’re right then my gold holdings will soar in value. So at least a silver lining to the ruination of a once proud nation.

    Personally I think that normal people are starting to win back the argument from the blob all around the western world, despite the MSM’s best efforts. Certainly worth buying popcorn for a Trump vs Sanders head to head debate!

  8. Something seems to be peculiar to the left is they never seem to understand that attributes that might appeal to one part of the demographic might be a deterrent to another part. “Kickass women” could be strong with the sort of women like the idea of “kickass women”. It’s going to put off a whole swath of more conservative minded men & even women who don’t equate the “kickassedness” of women as a being a virtue. And this does seem to a whole range of attributes & policy issues espoused by the left. They increasingly seek support form a continually contracting niche.
    I suppose its the echo chamber effect of a media that largely thinks the same. They never hear anyone disagrees with them

  9. It will be interesting what the DNC does to keep Bernie out this time. It really looks like he has the momentum behind him, none of the other candidates are exactly setting the world alight, how will they manage to explain ditching the No 1 candidate? I have this odd feeling that they are setting it up for Hilary to make a last minute parachute jump into the race and be magic carpeted into the candidacy.

    A lot of guys have to put up with woke, feminazis at work. Why on earth would they vote one into the Whitehouse if they didn’t have to?

    It’s like the DNC are living in a different reality to the rest of us.

    Bernie vs Trump is a more even contest, but it’s not going to be a walk in the park for Bernie. He is an out-and-out Commie and Trump will call him on that time and again. Even in 2020 I can’t see the Yanks voting in a Commie.

  11. I suspect that with record low unemployment and pay rises averaging 4% for the poorest quartile the number voting for change will be smaller than usual.
    I also have my doubts how many Biden supporters will turn out for Saunders (or vice versa).
    I’ve seen numerous reports of Trump getting 30% approval amongst blacks- if even 10% actually vote for him that puts the Dems in difficulty by itself.
    So I’d bet on a Trump win.
    To judge by the Dems focus on non-electoral means of removing him so do they.

  12. Bloke in North Dorset

    John Kerry has been reported as saying he might step in if looks like Bernie will get the ticket.

    He’s the sort that the DNC might swing behind if Biden looks like failing.

    It’s becoming quite the clown show.

  13. To judge by the Dems focus on non-electoral means of removing him so do they.

    Nah. The Dems knew from the original lineup of the Seven Dwarves that none of them was going to win against Trump, it was only a question of who would lose the closest. The impeachment was a distraction activity that was never even remotely going to succeed, it was just about taking the heat off their own illegal actions and to virtue signal back to their base that “Orange Man Bad”. It was not meaningful in any sense to anyone on Capitol Hill.

  14. The movie Kick Ass was partly famous for the use of the word “cunt” but other than that I’m not seeing much connection with Warren.

  15. ‘the polls firmly showed that Saunders would have won if he had the nomination’

    Polls show what the commissioner want. Had he had the nomination, campaigning would have ensued. He alleged popularity would have changed.

    The Dem fix is Bloomberg. None of the fine group of Dem candidates will get 50%. The convention will pick. They will pick Bloomberg.

  16. Bernie proved a coward last time – diddled out of the nomination by the Dem establishment he kowtowed to Hellary. If the buggers do it again I hope he runs as an Independent. Even better, could he find a real Injun to be his VP running mate?

    “Vote for the Commie and the Redskin”: how could anyone resist?

    Isn’t impeachment etc. just them trying to get publicity rather than a serious attempt to remove him?

    That was my guess too.

    And going by Trump getting the boot in early, it’s also his guess.

  19. The only way Warren could kick an !”ass” is to fall and land on her own fat arse.

    3HouseBernie is vile shite who isn’t even bright enough to disown his thuggish henchmen talking up gulags and tyranny. If –Ken– Americans are dumb enough to consider being murdered or gulaged for 25 years a “change” Bernie might win. I doubt it.

    Bloompuke–an arrogant socialist billionaire who thinks he can tell you how much coke you can drink at one time– is the most likely Democrat SOS to get the nod. Killery is just too spent and discredited a force.

    …or Hillary. 🙂

    Nah. Just joking. Another bruising election like 2016 would kill her off once and for all. It would be funny as hell, but probably not going to happen. “Pick your Billionaire” via a brokered Democratic convention seems to be the direction we’re heading in November.

    “It will be interesting what the DNC does to keep Bernie out this time. ”

    Well seeing as how he is only six months past a heart attack and shortly to be an octogenarian, I would be paying close and special attention to his VP pick.

  22. Dennis: Oppressor, Warmonger, Capitalist and Consumer of Petroleum Products

    Warren has been a disaster, and in many ways is Hillary 2.0.

    She is grating, strident and awkward on a personal level (like Hillary). Her attempts to come across as normal folk are – without exception – cringeworthy. Then there’s her long line of whoppers: She’s an Indian, Dad was a janitor, She was the victim of sexual discrimination as a school teacher, etc. And her political instincts suck. She released detailed policy proposals way too early in the election cycle (a Politics 101 level error), and chose to focus on healthcare, an issue that the Democrats – after Obamacare – simply have no credibility on. She’s attempting to out-Bernie Bernie, but still has the support of establishment Democrats like Barack Obama… which would suggest to the Bernie crowd – and quite rightly – that she’d sell them out the second she got elected. Her announcement last week that she’d have a transgender teen vet the nominee for a cabinet level appointment draw exactly the sort of mockery and derision it deserved.

    She ain’t kickass, she’s half-assed.

  23. Dennis, The Swinging Tool of Capitalism

    One thing nobody is mentioning but seems to be an obvious possibility: If the Democratic Party blocks Bernie from getting the nomination he decides to run as an Independent. It’s not like he can wait around another 4 years and try again.

    Which would split the Democratic vote just like Nader did in 2000. Not exactly a winning strategy for either Bernie OR the Democrats.

  25. Or just an ass.

    “Isn’t impeachment etc. just them trying to get publicity rather than a serious attempt to remove him?”

    Never presume rationality from the Left.

    What’s your point? Establishment Democrats are far more worried that they will lose control of the party apparatus (DNC, DCCC) to the Bernie Bros than they are of losing another election to Trump. If Bernie wins, their grip on power and the money flow goes away. That also means loss of jobs and careers. If Trump wins they keep the power, the money, their jobs and their careers. They don’t care about losing to Trump. They care about losing to Bernie. And as far as Bernie goes, what other card does he have to play?

  27. The point to note is that the swing vote tends to go to the side that is in favour of change.

    I dunno if this is true.

    If Obama wasn’t constitutionally barred from running in 2016, he’d have won easily. American voters rarely toss out an incumbent president, unless they’re a stone-cold loser like George Bush, Jimmy Peanut or Gerald Ford.

    Reagan and Nixon – who were hated by the Left, and the Press (same thing), just as much as the current President, got reelected by a landslide.

  28. Dennis – Bernie won’t run as an independent, because he has no balls.

    Remember he let a couple of shouty-crackers black women humiliate him at his own rally? Remember he meekly fell in behind Hillary after she cheated him out of the nomination?

    Guy’s a putz.

  29. Dennis, The Beau Brummell of Central Ohio

    Dennis – Bernie won’t run as an independent, because he has no balls.

    Wouldn’t argue with you on the no balls thing. However, him having no balls cuts both ways. If the Bernie Bros demand a 3rd party run, he’d have to face them down and say “no”. I’m not sure he has the balls to do that

  30. Bloke in Costa Rica

    I’m rather hoping for an SDP/Militant-type split like when David Owen, Roy Jenkins, Shirley Williams et al. buggered off because they didn’t think people were going to vote for a piss-smelling tramp like Michael Foot. You’d get one party full of the establishment nomenklatura and another one with all the soap-dodging Dave Sparts. The fading claque of Nevertrumpers could find their natural home in the former, which would act as a sterling purgative. Meanwhile the 50%+ of the electorate that is normal could solidify around a freshly-invigorated GOP.

  31. Dennis, Septic to the Masses

    That’s cute. Someone in Germany thinking they have room to question the normalcy of other countries’ electorates.

  32. Should Bernie S get the dem nomination, I would put any amount of money on Bloomberg running as a third party. He’s got the money, he’s got the ego and he’s not getting any younger.

  33. He’s got the money, he’s got the ego and he’s not getting any younger.

    Yes, he’s 77 now and even Trump at 70 was the oldest first time president ever elected. I’m guessing he thinks it’s now or never, especially with Bernie as his main opponent for the nomination, whose 78. Coming back to try this again at 81 in 2024 isn’t gonna help, no matter how hale and vigourous Bloomberg is.

  34. I like the sound of the above. Bernie OR Bloomberg might run 3rd party. I don’t care which . . . wait . . . I do. I want Bernie 3rd party. Bloomberg wouldn’t draw any votes away from Dems.

    Mark Steyn spent some time today talking about how unlikely all the reported problems in Iowa are: it looks like the fix to stop Bernie has already started. 😉

  35. Good grief, I saw this old hag bounce onto the stage amidst a whole lot of finger pointing and vain attempts to look energetic and lively. It was painful to watch someone like her try to look young and dynamic, it was like when Gordon the Moron tried to grin a lot and look cheerful – he should’ve presented himself as the serious no bullshit candidate rather than ape Blair just as Warren should be try to be the serious rational alternative to Trump or Sanders.
