In one sense I feel bad for Kamala Harris. Apparently she got called to visit the Clintons over the weekend. Poor Kamala, the things she must have endured – repeated unsolicited offerings of hot sauce, Hillary bobble-head performances at random intervals, Chelsea, Bill, more Chelsea. And that was before Ma Rodham hit the bottle and Kamala got to see her reprise election night 2016.
Did I mention Kamala’s name is a derivation of the Sanskrit word for “lotus flower”? Lotus Flower Harris is running for POTUS in 2020, and the Clinton’s want to help bankroll it. Or push Harris as a candidate so that Hillary can collude with the DNC and bump Lotus Flower to the VP spot on a Clinton-Kamala ticket. They’ll call it a co-presidency the way Bill and Hill did back in the 1990s except this time the boy with the cigar ain’t getting jiggy with the interns.
As a San Francisco lawyer it should come as no surprise Lotus Flower is into things leftards love. No need to itemize her disagreements with police, or her creation of “special LGBT hate crimes” investigation units, or all the rest here. Her colleague in the US Senate summed it up best:
Lotus flower, according to Dianne Feinstein, “just got here.” “Here” being the Senate and “just got” being a reference to Lotus Flower’s inexperience on the national stage. (To date, the only thing Lotus Flower has done nationally was play the role of victim during the James Comey hearings.)
Does that sound like someone we all remember?
In 2007, Barack Obama was an unknown quantity. All we knew was that, as Harry Reid said, he could do away with his “negro dialect” when he wanted. Oh, and Reid also said Obama was “clean”. Anyone call the Southern Poverty Law Center and ask them to look into Harry I-Got-My-Ass-Kicked-By-Bow-Flex Reid’s racism?
Lotus Flower’s history isn’t as opaque as Obama’s. But aside from the Comey hearing, the bulk of her curricula vitae is ensconced in San Francisco and California politics. That means she’s still something of an unknown in a Democratic field populated by potential candidates that are all older than dirt and more out of touch than an elderly white woman going on an urban radio program to pitch hot sauce.
Being of both Indian – as in curry, the subcontinent, and Mumbai variety and not the Elizabeth Warren kind – and Jamaican heritage, Lotus Flower’s ethnic background is all the left needs to overlook the things Lotus Flower needs them to overlook. Kind of like how Obama attended twenty years of sermons by a radical America-hating weirdo, but the left was cool with it because, hey, Barack Obama was black.
Lotus Flower is both ethnically not white AND she’s self-identified as a woman. That’s a doubleheader for the left.
Unless Bernie Sanders decides he self-identifies as a woman. Then things could get really weird – and that’s saying something in this day and age.
