With 348 days to go until the election, Democrats are facing serious problems.
On the one hand, the people that actually get out and vote Democratic are getting too old and too gray - there’s just not enough of them left.
On the other hand, the voters that Democrats are currently trying to ‘woo’ are too young and too crazy.
Yeah...crazy. And I’m not the only one that’s seeing it.
Hell, we even had Obama come out last week and say that Democrats running for president need to calm down and stop being so revolutionary.
Obama’s smart - he knows that if the 2020 campaigns continue as they are, Democrats are going to lose and lose big.
In Montana, Democrats have been losing big for over a decade, now.
Next year that’s gonna be all red.
I can’t remember the last time Republicans controlled all statewide offices and the legislature and the Court. That would be a fun fact to look up, and I hope I can find the answer for you.
Mostly, Democrats just don’t care about Montana anymore. The highest elected official in the state is setting the example. He’s aloof.
In a little over 400 days, Bullock will be out of Montana politics for good. Thank God! Let’s just hope his ego doesn’t have him entering the Senate race.
Here’s a rare one - Bullock actually in Montana! You’ll notice he’s standing with the other members of the Land Board...all Republicans. In 14 months, the Land Board won’t have any Democrats tarnishing it.
I don’t think Democrats want to win. If they did want to win, their message would actually appeal to the majority of voters, and not just the fringe.
When I say fringe, I’m mostly talking about lazy Americans that don’t want to work, but still want things for free...like healthcare and housing. Democratic voters hate Republicans...unless the Republicans are working and paying their way.
That’s the main message from Dems this cycle - you don’t have to work...we’ll take care of you with the money Republicans pay in taxes.
Democrats actually think this message will work.
And then we get to John Mues, the guy who killed a man with his campaign rollout...or perhaps he was just auditioning for The Contender 2.
Let’s look at his latest campaign stop, in Billings:
Twenty people were in the crowd.
I count 15 people with gray or graying hair.
Just five people had hair that wasn’t gray...and that doesn’t mean they weren’t old - I think they were. See for yourself:
Safe, reliable, blue-D voters.
Preaching to the base. Mues didn’t have to travel all the way to Billings to convince those 20 people to vote for him - they were going to vote for him anyways.
What’s so telling is how many people didn’t give a flying-fuck what John Mues had to say.
That’s 109,622...or the population of Billings minus the twenty that cared about him and his message.
Let’s be fair to the good people of Billings - a good portion of the twenty in Mues’ crowd tonight probably came from neighboring counties.
To say Mues has an uphill battle is an understatement.
And then there’s Whitney.
Born-with-a-spoon-in-her-mouth Whitney. My, social media has not been kind to her!
Her ego is so big she actually thinks she has a chance. I know - you can’t fix stupid.
The money...the connections...the family history...Whitney’s been run out of most of the big metropolitan areas, so now she has to come ‘home’ and make it here.
The same things that made people grow sick of her for the past 20 years, well...she thinks those are the qualities that will endear her to Montanans.
You know...the money...the connections...the family history.
Yes, yes...I’m giving the big sigh of disbelief. I’m also breaking out into laughter.
But that laughter is uneasy. Remember, we sent Baucus to D.C. for decades, and that charlatan actually thinks Montanans have some use for him still, or for his son.
The good news is that Montanans aren’t stupid, and simply won’t fall for the same ol’ trick twice.
Williams...Baucus...we have no use for these assholes-on-our-elbows.
It sure as hell will be fun watching them run for the next year, thinking they can win, never realizing that all they’ll ever do is crash and burn, providing us all with monumental levels of entertainment before they carpetbag themselves on to greener pastures...which thankfully won’t be in Montana.
