The LuLac Edition #4, 773, June 28th, 2022




You are hearing a lot of people saying the Republican party was shrewder than the Democrats in doing the long game for the Supreme Court. That is true and from a strategic standpoint, you have to give them credit. But you also must point out that some Democrats never fought hard for a candidate that headed their ticket. Republicans will get in line and overlook the flaws of their standard bearer.  Nixon, Reagan, Bushs 41 and 43 all were flawed.  Trump in  that category was in a class by himself. But the GOP voter defended them. Always!

But Democrats like to pick. Humphrey’s sins were he was not Gene McCarthy or Bobby Kennedy. "He talked too much"

Michael Dukakis’ flaw was that he was too unemotional.  “We can’t warm up to him!” “He’s too cold”. “His wife is mental!”

Al  Gore  was too distant. "Too much of a political pedigree". "Wasn’t a real veteran because he was a reporter in Vietnam". "Too preppy". "His wife banned my favorite song!" 

John Kerry: Too rich. "I don’t like his wife". "Too much emphasis on the military". "Too little emphasis on the military". "How’d he get those medals?" 

Then the topper!

Hillary Clinton: “I just don’t care for her!” “She never left Bill”. “She’s power hungry”. “Too shrill”. “Not tough enough”. “Those e mails heyna?”

We got to the Supreme Court decision by picking our candidates to death with LITTLE SHIT THINGS!.  Every candidate mentioned with the exception of Dukakis lost by mere percentage points. Two of them even won the popular vote.

But they weren’t GOOD ENOUGH for those Democrats who wanted a perfect candidate. To those who went third party in the Humphrey, Gore and Clinton  races, to those who looked for perfection in the Kerry race, you unknowingly collaborated with the GOP to have this court.

Hope you're happy.

Once again blaming others than those who lost.

Dukakis was submarined in the primary and couldn't recover from the that battle.
Kerry was weak when he was cowardly swift-boated. Instead of standing up for his service, he hid.
Gore ran from Clinton in the South and took his own state for granted.
Hilary was anointed the nomination; she did not earn it. And, when she got it, she too ran away from Bill and took for granted what was a large chunk of the democratic base, barely campaigning in important states like say, Pennsylvania.
These people did NOT make politically smart efforts to win.
Stop blaming the voters, when it was poorly run campaigns. And it was these poorly run campaigns that gave us Donald Trump.
Democrats lose because they are too busy assigning blame instead of doing what it takes to win.

I remember the fear mongering that existed when Kennedy ran for office because he was catholic.
Perhaps, that fear was not unfounded. We now have a court comprised of MAGA cultists and catholic cultists.
What did we expect?
