Another One Bites The Dust

On Wednesday’s episode of “The Michael Knowles Show,” Knowles talks about the failure of Kamala Harris’ presidential campaign. Video and partial transcript below: 

But on that point, on 2020, on the leader of the free world and the hope for the future and the hope for 2020: Another one bites the dust. You’ve probably already seen this going around the Internet, Kamala Harris is officially out of the race. 

It’s not significant, in terms of the actual election — no one thought that Kamala Harris was going to be able to claw her way out of the 2% in the polls that she had, but it does say something about the state of the Democratic Party right now. The fact that her candidacy flopped, her candidacy — which looked very good on paper — flopped. Tells you a lot about where we are. 

Why did the candidacy look good on paper? Because the Left is obsessed with identity politics, racial identity, and sexual identity politics. Obviously, Kamala Harris checks those boxes. The Left is obsessed with unfettered immigration; Kamala Harris is the child of immigrants. In terms of presidential appeal, in terms of how these races tend to work, if you’ve been on the scene too long, generally that doesn’t bode well for you, especially in the Democratic Party.

Now think of Barack Obama, [who] goes up against Hillary Clinton. We all knew Hillary forever, she’d been around since the dawn of time … Barack Obama, very little was known about him, and that actually helped him. He was a better candidate because people didn’t know that much about him. They could project their hopes and dreams onto him — hope and change was the big theme of that campaign. 

Same thing was true of Kamala Harris. People didn’t really know who she was. She was an attractive-looking candidate. She sounded pretty good when she wasn’t giving that awful cackling laugh, she had been attorney general, she had been a prosecutor, she had been a senator for about five minutes. Everything looked good about her campaign, except ideologically because Kamala Harris couldn’t pick a lane.
