The clock is ticking faster now. Beto crashed miserably; Kamala’s giggling high-school schtick is embarrassing herself and others; the DNC has run out of handlers for Biden’s frequent episodes; Bernie is still yelling at trees; and now Warren has outed her plan to tax everyone into oblivion to fund her $52 trillion, yes TRILLION, healthcare scheme.
Hence, the New York Times jumps into action… Buttigieg is now their latest hope. Quick dispatch all immediate narrative engineers to the typeset:
[…] Ms. Warren appears to have solidified her gains in the first voting state while Mr. Buttigieg has climbed quickly to catch up with Mr. Sanders and overtake Mr. Biden, the onetime front-runner. Ms. Warren is drawing support from 22 percent of likely caucusgoers, while Mr. Sanders is at 19 percent, followed by Mr. Buttigieg at 18 percent and Mr. Biden at 17 percent.
The survey is full of alarming signs for Mr. Biden, who entered the race in April at the top of the polls in Iowa and nationally. He is still in the lead in most national polls, but his comparatively weak position in the earliest primary and caucus states now presents a serious threat to his candidacy.
With the Iowa caucuses just three months away, Mr. Biden’s unsteadiness appears to have opened a path in the race for other Democrats closer to the political middle, particularly Mr. Buttigieg. (read more)
Watch how this pro-Buttigieg narrative evolves.
The DNC relies on Wall Street/Hollywood donor funding. Warren is a non-starter, and Sanders is ‘all-in’ for socialism. Even Teh One, Obama, is warning about the political nonsense behind the woke movement from his new $15 million mansion on Martha’s Vineyard.
By the end of the month they’ll have a bumbling Biden eating baby food through a straw as he’s wheeled on stage with a lanyard full of acrylic reminder cards: “Joe, you’re in Iowa”…
The club is now moving to Buttigieg.
If famously horrible Amy Klobuchar can quit cursing and screaming at her staff over their forgetting to pre-open the 42.5° Perrier bottles, she might stand a chance next.
