It might actually happen.

As Let's Go Brandon poll numbers continue to crumble, it's more and more plausible that Democrats dump Let's Go Brandon after the upcoming CNN debate. When even The Hill is pointing Let's Go Brandon mistakes and freeze ups, the Democrat playbook is being exposed - they are probably going to replace him.  I don't like saying that because he is an albatross around the necks of the Democrats.  He will help the chances of a red wave in November. A replacement candidate would be a wildcard.  I don't think it helps the Democrats much and might even be worse. But you never know. 

The Democrats cannot run this guy and win. I think they are starting to finally realize that.  They can no longer lie their way into victory. They can probably continue to cheat, but when the scope of the cheating becomes too big, they have to roll the dice.   I once thought they Democrats wouldn't do that, but now, I'm starting to think it's a more than 50% chance.

The irony is that if they had eased up on the lawfare cheating, and actually started giving a damn about the  border, they might have continued to have a chance at a 2024 win. Not that I would have liked it, but those two changes could have really helped them.

Trump Veepstakes update

With respect to Trump's VP choice in 2016, do you think he chose Pence to shore up his support among evangelicals, or was it to have a non-exciting VP who wouldn't outshine him?  Because if the former is true, Tim Scott might be a good bet.  If he needs to shore up his support among women, there's only one choice on his apparent short list.

The other choices on the list are from safe Republican states and don't do much for Trump in the obvious Electoral College sense. But there is one other possibility; Trump might put together a Dream Team, to really make a difference.  This is his last chance to create a legacy (which for him seems to be that he wants to be the guy who saves America).  In that case a number of people on this list make some sense in certain ways - not just for VP, but for various administrative roles.

Trump has also mentioned that first and foremost it has to be someone who would be a good president in case it came to that.

Let's see what Fox has to say about it:

It's like watching two toddlers argue astrophysics

Not really, but this video is not as sophisticated as Doug In Exile would have you believe. Yes, there's some good things to note but it's not quite great. Watching a conversation between John Fetterman and Bill Maher is a different thing than it would have been even four years ago. Four years ago it would have been mind numbingly painful, but now it's tolerable.  Don't be mistaken; neither man is about the to jump sides and become a Republican (and probably not even an independent) because the Democrat party has gone full-tilt, off-the-map crazy.  

They are entrenched. Dave Rubin thinks Bill Maher will wake up and see the light one day, drop his Trump Derangement Syndrome and become a conservative. He truly believes Maher is on the edge of doing that. It's not gonna happen.  Maher has some common sense but he still suffers from Trump Derangement Syndrome. He still believes Democrats are the party of liberty.  He doesn't believe the radical elements represent the majority of the party.  They are a lunatic fringe in his mind.  On Megyn Kelly he outright denied that Hillary Clinton has been an election denier since 2016 - despite the video evidence otherwise. If he hasn't come around by now, he won't.  He's in too deep to realize he's buying garbage and being told it's gold.  

A lot of people, including Doug In Exile in the video below,  think Fetterman will leave the Democrats. It's not going to happen unless the Democrats end up kicking him out of the party. There's been a lot of talk about Fetterman turning more conservative since he had a stroke. There's several data points showing that to be true. But I don't think he's likely to "leave the plantation", he's more likely to stick it out and try to win from the inside of the democrat tent.  The strategy is doomed to fail, but I'm not opposed to him trying. As is mentioned by Doug In Exile in the video below, the more infighting among Democrats, the better. Democrat disunity and division is definitely a winning formula for conservatives. The longer it goes on, the better.

The whole video is a good watch. At 3:47, Doug In Exile starts making some fantastic points about the left.  They wrap themselves in terms that in action, they actually oppose.

The January 6th Committee coverup

The January 6th committee was designed to get Trump, just like the NY felony case, and the Georgia case, and the civil case, and... you get the point.  In each of those cases the attitude has been "justice be damned, we want to get Trump so he can't win re-election".

But as we have known for years, Pelosi was culpable. Trump was not.  The truth will come out eventually.

Was Karl Marx an atheist or something worse?

Jordan Peterson and Paul Kengor discuss whether Karl Marx was not an atheist but rather a satanist. My take is that it doesn't really matter which one Karl Marx was, his effects on the world were both radical and evil.
