It hardly needs to be said that politicians frequently make the most astounding claims. Sometimes, one just wants to look them in the eye and tell them to shut the front door, so to speak, because this is a family-friendly website. Kamala Harris rarely disappoints when it comes to making statements that blow the mind. Remember that little girl from The Exorcist, spewing green stuff across the room as her head spun all the way around? That had nothing to do with demonic possession – she had just heard Harris speak. The very latest Harrisism is right up there with her greatest hits, such as the wonderfully rambling speech about “the passage of time” – look it up, it’s a doozy – and “it’s time for us to do what we have been doing – and that time is every day.”
On this occasion, a January 23 interview with Katie Couric, Harris didn’t bless us with another confounding word salad. Instead, she stuck with good old delusional narcissism. Tackling the problem of Joe Biden’s record-low approval ratings – and her own, which are even worse, if you can believe that – Kamala suggested that she and her boss are just too darned modest. They should have spent more time explaining to an ignorant and ungrateful public how brilliant they are.
Kamala Harris Knows the Problem with Voters
After a simpering Couric reeled out a list of the Biden administration’s supposed accomplishments, Kamala Harris took the set-up and ran with it. “Historic work has happened, no question,” she concurred. “It is incumbent on us to let people know who brung it to them, frankly.” We don’t know why the veep chose that particularly tortured phraseology; perhaps it has something to do with how she was brung up.
Harris went on: “So, you’re right, we have a lot of accomplishments, and I think what the American people want most in their leaders is that we actually get things done — and we have done it.” Not quite the usual word salad, but close – word coleslaw, perhaps. But there was more. “We haven’t taken adequate credit for it, frankly, and we’ve got to do a better job of getting the word out about what we have accomplished and who did it.” Marvelous, especially that last bit: “… what we have accomplished and who did it.” Who did it, then, if not “we”? Who was she talking about? We may never know – or care.
It was a gutsy move, though, to take credit for the unmitigated disaster three years of the Biden-Harris dream team has produced, and it doesn’t appear that Joe Biden feels the same way. When he delivered the opening speech of his 2024 campaign in Pennsylvania, recently, he said not a single word about his and Harris’ “accomplishments.”
By every measure, the US economy is in terrible shape. Kamala Harris mentioned “bringing down prices” but failed to acknowledge that inflation reached a 40-year high under Biden-Harris. So, that’s like sinking a ship and then taking credit for how many survivors you plucked out of the water – or maybe brung out of the water.
The insulting part of it all – and this is a theme used by the left-wing media – is the inference that Americans are too dumb to know how good they have it and, thus, aren’t giving Joe Biden and Kamala Harris the praise they deserve. It’s a deception of almost North Korean proportions to continually insist that Americans today are better off than they have ever been. Still, it’s almost depressing to consider the possibility that Harris will be out of a job come January of 2025 and then we will no longer be treated to her masterful grasp of facts, logic, and the English language.
But at least we will be left with this eternal piece of advice from Harris, speaking in New Orleans back in June of 2022: “[C]ulture is – it is a reflection of our moment in our time, right? And, and, and present culture is the way we express how we’re feeling about the moment. And, and we should always find times to express how we feel about the moment that is a reflection of joy, ‘cuz, you know, it comes in the morning [cackle].” You may not know it now, dear reader, but you’re going to miss her when she’s gone – this woman who brung us so much wisdom.
