It’s been a while since Conservative leaders asked the Washington Post to stop billing Jennifer Rubin as a Conservative blogger. But they still do. However, judging from the response to a recent poll she put out there, you have to wonder how many of her followers are Conservative anymore.
The obvious question is what ticket on that list is remotely Conservative? Not to mention, the combinations themselves are weird. The only one that is not a flaming Progressive disaster is Biden as Heitkamp. And Kamala Harris would lose every bit of intersectional credibility she has and amplify her past as a prosecutor if she paired up with Mad Dog. And Klobuchar and Robert Francis just seems bizarre.
The weirdest pairing is the one that won. Stacey Abrams has six years experience as a state legislator and lost her race for Governor of Georgia. Pete Buttigieg has been the Mayor of South Bend Indiana for seven years. A nice town I guess, but the population is just over 100,000. Hardly a complex metropolis.
I honestly couldn’t come up with a less qualified pairing, unless the only grading scale is intersectional credibility. Zero foreign policy or national policy experience with a limited scope of leadership seems like a really bad idea. At least Vice President Mike Pence had run a state, quite well by the way, and had served in the Senate and President Trump had significant international business experience.
And why would any Conservative frame any of these match-ups as a “Dream Team”? Two also-rans intent on failing up, a Senator who lost her re-election campaign, a small town mayor, Creepy Uncle Joe, and Kamala Harris? The only one I would want to see in Washington again is Mad Dog. And probably right back in the job he’s already had.
Also notable that over 20,000 people voted and 40% of them voted for the most inexperienced team. Kinda makes you wonder exactly how many Conservatives Jennifer Rubin is trying to engage. I’ll be charitable and assert this could have been journalistic curiosity about the state of the race for Democrats.
But based on her timeline since the election, one has to wonder.
