The great news is: There were no attempts at speaking Spanish. The bad news is, paraphrasing the lyrics of a song from, Annie Get Your Gun, Democrats insist, in a goody two shoes way of Kirsten Gillibrand, that: Everything Biden once did, now does or will do, they could do better. And they would do everything better than Joe.
Standing in the middle, former Vice President Joe Biden was bombarded from the left and the right sides of the panel. A clear example of Democrats eating their own..
So Kamala Harris, a former San Francisco D.A., familiar with fracases, stepped up to the podium, arms held out and announced, “This is supposed to be a debate, not a food fight.”
The bickering subsided. Harris proved to be a living example of leadership. Joe was out, but nineteen candidates were still in.
However, Harris wasn’t finished with Joe. She said that Joe was against bussing, a situation where children living in lower economic neighborhoods were bussed into higher economic neighborhoods for purposes of integration. Education was also supposed to be part of the equation.
But because Biden was against bussing, as a second grader, Harris found his words hurtful. Her voice broke. And then a photograph was tweeted of a little girl in the second grade who was Kamala Harris. By this time, Joe was scrambling to get up on his feet.
Sadly, no one escapes childhood without hurt, and hurt isn’t a free pass into the White House. Bussing cost millions. Test scores did not justify the investment. Better to have invested in building new schools with new classrooms, playgrounds, swimming pools, tennis courts, track and field in lower-income neighborhoods.
Sanders was singing the same song of outrage. Eric Swalwell's makeup looked bad. The guy with no tie should have worn a tie. Pete Buttigieg was eloquent but could learn some street smarts from Kamala Harris. And where did that love guru come from?
Forget debates and pity, dirty diapers, tough on crime, thousand dollars giveaways, love, hurt.
Have a spelling bee instead. Everyone knows who can't spell.
