I don't know a lot about her yet. I recall that she is no fan of the 2A.

I want to see this cat fight settled cage match style.  Harris, Warren and Clinton.  3 communists enter,  one leaves.  Survivor gets curb stomped by Trump.

Former Commiefornya Attorney General.  Before that she infested San Francisco.  D. A.  Or something like that.  Big time super liberal,  "Flaming Liberal" in old Frisco vernacular. 

She'd be a disaster as president.   I wouldn't elect her dogcatcher.

Poontronage is the turn of phrase I saw coined somewhere for how she made it in politics. And Trump is just the right guy to point that out.

I had a real fear that she would make significant headway and be the dem pick, but her soundbytes over the last year truly emphasize "clueless moron".

She got a lot - a LOT - of slack here in CA for all her dumb stuff because of the CA demographics. I'm not sure how well her liberal arrogance will fly on a national level in much of the rest of the country, including with moderate dems.

Memes would be good, but just imagine the direct quotes.  I can also imagine the softball questions the press would throw at them also.

Harris has never known anything but softball reporting in CA in every office she has held, nor has she worked with anything but a large dem majority in state government. The "How can we ever thank you for existing?" media questions may not be so forthcoming on the national level, especially with some new media darlings in the dem primary list.

Though of note, CNN seems to have already anointed her. She is the first one they have arranged a town hall with, and did so like 17 seconds after she announced.

On the heels of yesterdayĺs announcement that she would be running for president, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) reportedly began staffing her campaign Tuesday with unpaid inmates from California correctional facilities. ôIĺm so grateful to have such an incredible and devoted team headed up by my new campaign manager, Spider, as we work together to fight for American values,ö said Harris of the two dozen non-violent criminal offenders who would reportedly work shifts of up to 72 hours out of her campaign office in exchange for three square meals a day and all the ôKamala Harris 2020ö merchandise they could carry.

Someone needs to make a talking Occasional-Cortex doll that spouts off lame drivel when you pull the string or push the button or whatever they do these days.

I believe the Simpsons did a Barbie Doll knock-off where the doll would say a bunch of non-PC sexist drivel.  That coming from an Ocasio-Cortex doll would be funny.



You just know her campaign paid for this crap, but some people to get into hero worship far too easily.  

However, considering their is a Mueller action figure, I can only imagine there is some small time outfit trying to market some of these stuff? 


Maybe someone like the South Park guys can use them to make a new movie.   grin

So it appears she has come out with a main campaign message of "eliminating all private health insurance". When asked if she would still allow people to have private insurance if they want it, the answer was "no".

I'm not totally familiar with various European models, but I think in most countries there, if you have the dough, you can still have private insurance. Is that correct? If so, then she is heading "Venezuela left" vs "UK left".

Edit: Another tidbit from her CNN Town Hall. "Ban all assault weapons". Just in case anyone thought she would tone down the California-centric message on the national stage.

https://twitchy.com/dougp-3137/2019/01/29/this-should-be-interesting-kamala-harris-take-on-2a-gun-laws-at-the-cnn-town-hall-is-something-else/

Her response is a great example of the cake analogy.
