Ten of the twenty Democrats running for president took the stage in Miami Wednesday evening and made complete fools of themselves. To think one of these brainless liberals was to run the country is scary. More scary than imagining Hillary Clinton showing up in my bedroom wearing a nightgown holding a viagra pill.
I have to admit, I couldn’t watch most of it. It appeared that every time I tired something forced me to click away. The mic issues, Corey Bookers fake anger, it all ripped through me in a way that felt like I was swallowing chards of glass.
I nearly broke my smart TV when the wanna-be Mexican from Texas gave his answer in Spanish. Beto O’Rourke proved he has no right representing Americans in the White House, not to mention he makes AOC look smart.
But the question of the night had to be when NBC co-moderator Chuck Todd asked for a one-word answer to the biggest geopolitical threat to the United States. Below are the answers given, underscored with my “downright crazy” rating of each.
Scale: “1” is legit answer, “10” equals downright crazy.
John Delaney: “The biggest geopolitical challenge is China. But the biggest geopolitical threat remains nuclear weapons.”
DML: I give him a 4. Iran, North Korea and migration from Central America need to be addressed.
Washington Gov. Jay Inslee: “Donald Trump.”
DML: What an idiot. 10.
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard: “We’re at a greater risk of nuclear war today than ever before in history.”
DML: I give her a 3.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar: “Two threats. Economic threat, China. But our major threat right now is what’s going on in the Mideast with Iran.”
DML: I give her a 3.
Beto O’Rourke: “Our existential threat is climate change.”
DML: This guy is a walking billboard for birth control. I give him an 11.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren: “Climate change.”
DML: This woman is a walking billboard for birth control. I give her an 11.
Sen. Cory Booker: “Nuclear proliferation and climate change.”
DML: He reminds me of an ugly, angrier Obama. I give him a 8.
Julián Castro: “China and climate change.”
DML: I despise this needless candidate more than any rating can reflect.
Rep. Tim Ryan: “China, without a question. They’re wiping us around the world, economically.”
Mayor Bill de Blasio: “Russia, because they’re trying to undermine our democracy and they’ve been doing a pretty damn good job of it. And we need to stop them.”
DML: If Bill and I were in the same high school, I would have kicked his ass on a monthly basis. Maybe weekly. I won’t even give him a rating he is so irrelevant.
