Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, August 01, 2019

The second night of Democrats' presidential debates was an all-out panderfest as the candidates reeled off prepared lines geared toward putting identity- and class-politics at the heart of the revival of the party. This approach was discarded in the '90s, only to return bigger than ever today, as each candidate sought to outdo the other with outlandish promises and oppo-research attacks.

By the end of this endless debate, I walked out with $1,000-a-month, an extra grand if I'm a female, untold reparations dollars if I am African American, Medicare from birth covering everything I'll ever need, and the right to cross the border without any real penalty if I'm from another country. Prosecuting criminals got a thumbs-down, white privilege made me immune from villainous, racist police, there will be no more pointless wars, carbon emissions will be 0 by 2030, and the government will run almost all health care.

This is no way to win a National election.

Very true, but for a DNC stalwart like Mark Penn to call it out underscores how bad it got last night, unlike in Night 1, which I thought was a much better discussion of policy than last night appears to have been.

I have no idea who this hack is but clearly the inbred didn't watch the debate.

Looks like someone has been skipping his Reading Comprehension Tutoring Sessions yet again:

"Mark Penn served as pollster and senior adviser to former President Clinton from 1995 to 2000, including during Clinton's impeachment."

He also was chief strategist and pollster in the Hillary Clinton 2008 presidential campaign and a senior adviser to Secretary Clinton in the 2016 presidential campaign.

You also thought there was a sex trafficking ring in a basement that didn't exist. Your schizophrenic tendencies are well-documented, Boaz.
