BY DOUGLAS MACKINNON,
f we think back to just before Super Tuesday on March 3, Biden seemed to be falling so far off the party’s radar screen that some expected him to pull out of the race.
But then, as if by some political sleight of hand, the young, diverse, talented slate of candidates had completely disappeared in a puff of stale, white smoke. When that smoke dispersed, there stood Biden, alone on the stage with his awkward smile, preparing to take on President Trump in November. Gone even were Biden’s contemporaries, first Bloomberg, then Warren and finally Sanders.
When Hollywood finally returns to work, maybe a creative screenwriter will offer up a script in which a pro-Trump double agent infiltrates the hierarchy of the Democratic establishment and convinces them to make decisions that ultimately benefit the Trump campaign.
Seriously, what else explains the process that would sweep aside a diverse slate of candidates who spoke to millions of Gen X and millennial voters, in favor of Biden with his gaffes and political baggage? The fact is, the United States is more than ready for a female president. It is more than ready for another president of color. It is more than ready for a president from the LGBTQ community. It certainly would welcome a ticket that combines any or all such candidates.
MacKinnon is a republican who loves his Identity Politics, but I enjoyed the title and premise.

The filthy rich own both parties now. That’s why the Democratic candidate looks almost exactly like the GOP candidate.
From the article:
“Yes, something certainly appears to have sabotaged the Democrats’ best laid plans for big change come November, and the party now seems to be painted into a corner of self-created despair.”

Democratic voters want all of Trump’s policies, without the unfashionable and gauche Donald Trump.

It’s as if the Democratic Party has become the Republican Party.
