Remember When The Democratic Party Actually Stood For Something?
Want further evidence of the comedy that has overtaken the Democratic Party? Another presidential wannabe – Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts – has made the fact that she has the tiniest bit of Native American Indian blood in her DNA a key part of her self-proclaimed qualification to be that Party’s presidential nominee.
The piece de resistance for contemporary analysis of the bankruptcy of substantive ideas in the Democratic Party, however, is the freshman Congresswoman from New York City, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez. This new Media Darling continues to amaze with displays of how vacuous her knowledge of history, economics, civics, and mathematics truly is.
While some here in my home state of Georgia, or in one of our neighboring states, might forgive young Ms. Ocasio-Cortez with a kind “Bless her heart,” due to her youth and inexperience, the Congresswoman’s shallowness is shared by others of her Party who are not so youthful or inexperienced. Shouts to impeach President Trump based on nothing more than disdain, if not hatred, for him personally or for other members of his family, bounce around the House chamber like children shouting at each other during a game of “Marco Polo.”
The most telling evidence that today’s national Democratic Party lacks even a scintilla of substance is perhaps not so much in the childish antics of a Maxine Waters or an Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez; or even in the already-tiresome calls for investigations of anything and everything “Trump.” The proof that the Party is utterly devoid of substance or professionalism can be seen every day in the open failure of its leaders to take even the most modest of steps to rein in such antics.
