In the second democratic debate, Kamala Harris moved and called Joe Biden a racist, while saying that Joe Biden was not a racist. He resolutely disagreed with her – but he feared he might seem like the logorrhea madman known to everyone in Washington. He noticed that his time had run out and stopped talking.
Stop talking! Joe Biden! He has to be old! He must be out of step! He has to be defensive!
And that was it. Within 30 seconds, left-liberal Twitter declared Biden a political corpse and began creating designs for the Harris Presidential Library.
Undoubtedly, Harris is the star of the week. Before that she was the most mysterious candidate in the race. It was hard to understand why this smart, savvy and extremely successful politician from the country's largest state seemed to be stuck deadlocking at 7%.
She campaigned for her candidacy with the Brio and Aggression, which for months lacked the stump.
Still: Whoa there, Nellie.
There is an insanity that deals with instarctions in social media, and a collective groupthink that feeds on itself and creates in minutes conventional wisdom that has no basis for any reality other than the collective madness of the crowd ,
Last week, people told us that Biden had been fatally injured by his statements about segregationist senators ̵
] In fact, Biden did not make any gaffes on Thursday night. He was attacked and he dealt with the attack. The aggressor may have had the benefit of the exchange, but that does not mean it has been eradicated from the future of democratic prefix.
The most likely result of the weekly procedure is that Biden will comfortably stay in the lead, while Harris will do so in double digits – and not at his expense.
Let's take it seriously. Do most democratic voters really believe that Biden is a racist who loves segregation? That was the substance of Harris' attack.
Perhaps millennial Democrats who believe that whites over 30 are racists are happy to accept this implicit charge, but the vast majority of Democratic voters will accept such a portrait of Barack Obama's vice president
If not, then the question goes to style. Biden's fortune is the notion that he is the most selectable person in the field and the most sensible person in the field.
Does Harris have the case not only for herself as an actress, but also as someone who could surpass Biden Donald Trump?
Did Pete Buttigieg, who was the other outstanding performer of the night, give the impression that he was at least as sensible as Biden?
Maybe. Maybe even. But one of them has to combine both. Biden's central appeal is intact: he's the type that will end the madman, not just the Trump madman, but implicitly the socialist madman who was shouted by Bernie Sanders every five seconds.
You have heard of manslaughter? Bernie roared. If I screamed as much as he did in this debate, I would be in the Emergency Room of the Otolaryngology Hospital and would be completely silent for six months. You have to honor the old man. He has first-class pipes. He is like the Pavarotti of the Commies.
Sticky Notes: The New Yorker Kirsten Gillibrand once claimed she had supported the care of single-payers when she was a member of Congress in a conservative district. That was just a bald-headed lie.
Marianne Williamson was the best psycho candidate since the "Rent Is Too Damn High" type.
There's a guy named Eric Swalwell who was on stage. He was so disgusting that I wonder if someone gave him a wedgie after the debate in the men's room ended.
After all, there has been so much political insanity on these stages over the last two nights – including the idea voiced by several people that we should not actually expel illegal immigrants who commit violent crime – that this party Donald Trump has a second Will give term if she is not wise and fast.
