It's simple. Stop the negative ads. Tell Americans that they're good people. Talk building and creating and constructive plans. Stop the ranting and name-calling. It's not that attacks are ineffective, it's that they are so overplayed right now that their marginal value is close to zero. It might even be negative.
This won't happen, of course. Trump is too much of a petulant child to do it.
I made the mistake of checking Twitter around the time Kamala Harris was announced as Biden's running mate. I felt like I was looking down the barrels of an artillery battery loaded with canister shot. KAMALA IS THE WORST PERSON EVER HERE ARE 84 REASONS WHY! Everyone had preloaded opinions about every choice Biden could have made and they launched the Kamala barrage the instant they found out she was the one.
I'm sure that over on the lefty side of Twitter, it was KAMALA IS THE BEST TO FIGHT WHITE SUPREMACISTS AND SHE'S SMART AND BLACK AND A WOMAN AND RACISM!
Dear God, the next few months are going to be horrendous. Thankfully, most sports have been canceled, so there's practically no reason to watch live TV. Wife kitteh and I are working our ways through Peter Gunn and Route 66 these days and that looks like a good survival strategy until the election.
I could only watch a few minutes of Tucker last night. He looked like one of those wind-up, cymbal-clanging, toy monkeys you used to buy for children whose parents you didn't like. YOU SHOULD HATE KAMALA HARRIS BECAUSE SHE'S AWFUL AND I WILL TELL YOU ABOUT IT OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN!
Please, just stop.
Just what was being accomplished here? Like I said, the marginal return on investment for one more rage tweet must now measured in femto-opinions. I was never going to vote for Biden. My problem with Trump is his obnoxious personality. My fears about the country have to do with the Democrats' neo-Nazi race mania, family structures and debt. Did I really need to be armed with a set of reasons why Kamala Harris is the worst? What am I going to do with those, yell them at my Democrat friends as we scream at each other?
How about this - run on a platform that asserts that America isn't racist. Talk to the people who build things and tell them they're the best. Tell the youth that their inheritance is being squandered on borrowing and how it's a significant moral good to be frugal.
Praise the people who are solid citizens and I would bet you'd have lots of others wanting to be included in that group.
Blue Civil War Update
Meanwhile, in the Blue Civil War, BLM Chicago told the black, lesbian mayor that there's a lot more looting on the way if they don't get what they want.
|First prize in our contest is a week as Chicago's mayor. Second prize is two weeks!|
To all the people honking Kamala as an historic choice because she's a black woman, I give you Lori Lightfoot, mayor of Chicago. She's the diversity trifecta - a homosexual, black woman. Her city is a dumpster fire. She'll be remembered as the mayor who took it from one of the great cities of the world to a violent, impoverished mess.
|Plus, she looks like one of those albino zombies from The Omega Man.|
It's not entirely her fault, of course. She didn't create a culture where her black neighborhoods haven't seen a marriage in 50 years. On the other hand, she still dishes out the racism claptrap on a regular basis, so it's not like she's completely without blame.
I thought diversity was our strength. Electing Lori Lightfoot and a whole host of other racial and sexual poster children was supposed to be important in some way. Instead, it looks like wrecking the family and racking up huge debts is a bad idea no matter whose name is on the Mayor's door.
So much for Kamala being historic. I mean, maybe she is, but who cares?
