Kamala Harris: The tofu candidate

Empower Wisconsin | Dec. 6,  2019

Just less than a year after she announced her candidacy for president, California Senator Kamala Harris is calling it quits.

Harris blamed a lack of money for her failed campaign. 

“I’m not a billionaire. I can’t fund my own campaign. And as the campaign has gone on, it’s become harder and harder to raise the money we need to compete,” Harris wrote.  

In October, as Harris was lagging in the polls, she questioned whether the country was “ready for a woman, and a woman of color to be president.”

This week, her defenders in the liberal media, including the Capitol Times’ own John Nichols, jumped on the Harris pity pot, saying if debate skills mattered, Harris would not be dropping out of the race. 

Poor Kamala. Poor liberals.  They go to incredible lengths to create an imaginary world where race and gender identity is everything, only to attract candidates who appear to have no distinct character beyond those identities.

As for Harris being a skilled debater. I suppose, if you define skill as the ability to plan, practice and execute a rhetorical hit against another candidate. But even if Harris left a mark on her opponents, she did so without ever making herself compelling or memorable.  

Harris is an aloof, arrogant, phony stunt artist. She’s willing to do or say anything to get attention, like pretending to smoke pot to rap music that didn’t exist or demanding that Twitter shut down President Trump’s account. Harris and her backers assumed  democratic voters would feel good about getting behind her historic candidacy.   

But they didn’t.

And it’s not because she’s a woman or a woman of color. It’s because Kamala Harris is completely devoid of authenticity. She’s like tofu, a squishy, tasteless protein that must be thoroughly marinated and cooked to engage the flavor and texture around it. For crying out loud, even Hillary Clinton is authentically awful.

The big question is whether the empty pant suit from San Francisco made enough of a splash to qualify for the vice-presidential sweepstakes.  We’re betting no.
