Does any individual else keep in mind Zippy the Pinhead? I just can’t glance at John Fetterman devoid of staying reminded of that cartoon character.
Not to mock Fetterman for his new stroke but even without it, he would seem like Zippy the Pinhead and the logic of his political positions would appear just as random. And even without the need of the stroke, he would have a remarkably scanty resume for a senatorial candidate. Mayor of a modest village 1 term lieutenant governor. No considerable business enterprise or professional practical experience.
So why did Fetterman, submit-stroke, stop up the Democratic Pennsylvania senatorial applicant? Can it actually be that they had no one superior or more visibly sane to set up for election? Apparently so.
The even bigger issue is why the Democratic Bash in the US has these a weak bench. Final cycle, the very best they could appear up with for President was outdated Joe Biden, corrupt, a hack, and struggling from dementia. And all they could occur up with for Vice President was Kamala Harris, who can’t feel to say just about anything coherent even with speechwriters. The closest competitor in the primaries appeared to be Pete Buttigieg. Buttigieg also appears to be many Democrats’ finest hope for 2024. And Buttigieg’s qualification is no more than that he was mayor of a smaller Midwestern city. Or probably they could have picked Bernie Sanders, more mature than Biden, not known prior to he ran for president, and a senator from a small point out. In fact, the 2nd smallest, and one particular in which even a yellow pet would be elected senator so extended as he was a Democrat.
How can it be that, even with the fact that they represent around 50 % the populace of the US, 150 million odd persons, this is the finest the Democrats can come up with for management?
But it is not so difficult to account for if you get into account the simple fact that half the US populace is automatically of regular or underneath IQ. If they all or virtually all vote for the same get together, you will have the present Democratic situation: even the leaders will be people today of about ordinary IQ.
So the dilemma of leadership reveals the challenge with the Democrats, and the modern left. Their tips are, as Margaret Thatcher stated, just completely wrong, and only silly people today obtain them. Only stupid folks consider, for case in point, that when the government provides out dollars, it is a generous reward from those people politicians, and not coming from their possess taxpayer pockets.
Hardly ever mind the Republicans in the US. Witness as properly the Canadian Liberal Social gathering. The ideal they can occur up with as chief is an impulsive and self-indulgent substantial faculty drama trainer. And the word on the Hill is that he is safe in his placement, because they have no person else who could plausibly exchange him.
Smart individuals no extended develop into Democrats, leftists, or Liberals except they are on the just take.
Unfortunately, unintelligent persons almost never know, or accept, that they are unintelligent. Witness the Dunning-Kruger Outcome: you need to be wise to know you are sensible, but equally wise to know you are dumb. Lots of research demonstrates that, if a hole in IQ exists of much more than 15 details, 1 typical deviation, two minds grow to be mutually unintelligible. The much less intelligent will not be able to grasp where the additional clever is coming from, and is probable to suspect they are ridiculous or evil. Probably a “far-ideal extremist.”
We are separating out into a clever bash and a stupid social gathering. And the stupid occasion is in ability.
