As alike as two pees in a pot
There’s a debate scheduled for this Sunday, Biden and Sanders one-on-one. But the South Carolina pol who gave Joe Biden’s failing campaign a jump start has called for cancelling the debate–in fact, shutting down the whole rest of the Democrat primary (https://www.foxnews.com/politics/clyburn-calls-for-shutting-dem-primary-down-canceling-debates-after-biden-surge).
What? You just shut it down? What about the states that haven’t voted yet? Sorry, folks.
In an interview last night on NPR, James Clyburn, who has suddenly emerged as the Democrat kingmaker, said the primary should be shut down and Biden declared the winner, take a hike, Bernie… because “you don’t do anything but get yourself in trouble if you continue in this contest.” Do they have to do what he says?
You can see their problem. Two candidates on worldwide TV. One of them’s a communist. The other doesn’t know where he is or what he’s doing, half the time. The other half the time, he can’t control himself. Not exactly a sure-fire way of rounding up sane people’s votes.
These two candidates, each appalling in his own way, could destroy each other. The Party can’t afford to let this happen. But to shut down the primary? When was the last time that was done? Certainly not in my lifetime. I’ll bet it’s never been done.
Clyburn is afraid of what these lunatics might say, once they get going. He should be.
The American people deserve to see and hear just how out-to-lunch these two guys are. But the Party muck-a-mucks don’t think so.
