Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Last time around, Hillary was the Democrat heir presumptive until Barack showed up out of nowhere and blew her away. In the Hierarchy of Liberal Victimology, Black beats Woman and all the Democrat delegates knew it. She never had a chance.
This time around, Hillary is the heir presumptive and Bernie is just a Socialist. In the Hierarchy of Liberal Victimology, Woman beats Commie any day. She’s got the nomination locked up.
But wait! Bernie could suddenly decide to become Transgender! Transgender is the new hotness. Liberals insist transgender men must have the right to use the women’s bathroom regardless whether the women like it or not; therefore, in the hierarchy, Trans beats Woman.
Bernie is running to the left of Hillary economically; he ought to be running to her left socially. The best Hillary could do in response is admit to a Lesbian affair with Huma, which everyone has long suspected and would be boring old news.
Bernie could condemn anybody who didn’t support him as a Hater, as old-fashioned, as not Progressive, as Not a True Democrat. Trans versus Lesbian – that’s a much better matchup than Woman versus Commie. Delegates looking for an excuse to dump Hillary would have a perfect out.
She’d never have a chance.
There’ve been dumber ideas out there.
See: this past eight years.
