... With her inauguration, Vice President Kamala Harris has made history: She's the first woman -- and first Black and South Asian person -- to serve in the role, and now the highest-ranking woman in US government. ...

Agree with all of that.

But let us please just allow her to do the job of the Office she has now entered, without all the baggage of the identity politics being ascribed to her.

Let her be a Vice President.

In that light, how much worse could she be than fmr VP Pence?

I mean, really.

Well, Lamplighter, she could be THOROUGHLYworse than Pence.

She slept her way to the top
and
she wouldn't treat a wrongly imprisoned man fairly.

Pence never did ANYTHING nearly as bad as either one of those!

You likely don't like that he loves Jesus.

Drivelike Jehu repeats Fox talking points but never has an actual thought of his own. Pathetic post Jehu. Grow up, learn some actual facts and then come back and discuss them with the adults. When you repeat a talking point from Fox or any other site it does get noticed and no, you will not gain respect from anyone who thinks and gets information from legitimate sources.

I was watching the PBS coverage of the inauguration and Leslie Stahl made a comment about how competent Kamala was by being able to walk down the steps in high heels without aid. I thought that seemed a bit sexist.

No she's not. She's poised to be just like every other VP. Liberals get so caught up in PC issues that they completely ignore the reality. It would be great if she pushed the boundaries of the VP office and did things to improve our nation that haven't been done before. But as far as how she is poised right now, she is no different than any other incoming VP. Every gender and race to date has not proven they are any better or worse than any other gender or race. Diversity has proven one thing...people are people. Politicians of any gender or race have proven they are corrupt and partisan. The general population is the same way. Stop making it out like a gender means anything. Gender only has one purpose in this context...to prove that anyone of any gender has the same opportunities as others. Beyond that, both genders have proven they act the same way as everyone else. Some are good, some are bad, etc.

F off u loser. Crawl back under whatever rock you creepy crawlied out from under.

Trumpy tried to murder Pence and overthrow his own government. You are likely saddened by the fact that Trumpy was such a failure at everything including Insurrection.

You can't make that claim.
One, she's been in the office for a day.
Two, you'd need many more women in office to really say it's women in general, and not just the specific individual.

The left is expecting her to champion the cause of wokeness and social justice. Truth be told, I don't know that this would be her passion. Certainly not Biden's passion.

But if they don't, it will be a new group of -------- storming government property.

Actually, they already are.

Whaaaaa! Them mean old liberals blah blah blah...

Kamala has so much more poise than any VP ever.

She has Tremendous poise actually. The Best poise. I call it the Be Best Poise.

The most poised person ever. Have you ever seen such poise? I haven't. People say she has the best poise of any poised person that ever poised.

Bigly poise. The biggliest! So big that it's poise is actually small again!

You could call it the biggiest smallest poise ever even. But I prefer the Be Best Poise.

Don't be Jealous Hummer.

But do Be Best Hummer!

My only question for you, and all your comrades on the left...had the shoe been on the other foot, would you still be calling what happened on 06 Jan insurrection?

After all, Portland has been attacked by insurrectionists for weeks on end...few on the left have had much to say about it.

Hoping is a better word than expecting.
I'm not sure if it's a reasonable expectation that a former DA can get the racists out of the police force... or would even want to in the first place.

Well, you can always riot...

The Capitol should be available by Monday.

"Portland has been attacked by insurrectionists"

The headline I see over at The Guardian is
Portland: leftwing protesters damage Oregon Democrats' headquarters

So, that's not really Portland being attacked.
That's Democrat party offices being attacked, presumably by leftists unhappy that the Democrats aren't left enough.

The important difference in the political landscape, of course, is that these leftists have (near-)zero representation among actual Democrat elected officials.
Whereas QAnon speaks for 1/3 to 2/3 of Republican elected officials.

It was a riot and the police responded with force and so it was easily controlled and contained.

Someone needs to look up "insurrection". Again.

Falsely accusing protesters or rioters of insurrection does not make it true.

"Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States." (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 808; Pub. L. 103"322, title XXXIII, 330016(1)(L), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2147.)

Last time I checked Portland is not the "authority of the United States or the laws thereof". Portland is a city in the state of Oregon last I checked.

It's not even the capital of Oregon. Much less the United States.

How about the ICE Building? The Federal Courthouse?

You idiots are proving my point...that you're no better than your right-wing insurrectionist peers.

Violence is OK, provided that it's a means to an end you support.

What do you guys have against social justice? You seem to prefer social injustice (clue: we have that now)?

What other kinds of justice do you not like?

You can't distinguish between a Federal Courthouse and the Capitol Building when the top three people in the line of succession to POTUS were in the building? A massacre in that place could have literally decapitated the government.

Nothing anything like that happened in Portland or anywhere else this summer.

While they were in the process of choosing the next President, no less.

The "Left" has absorbed all the better qualities of conservatism, after the fascist GOP threw them away.

We are the face of reason, and your current best hope.

I have no "insurrectionist peers". And you apparently have no point.

And once again you are using big words that you apparently do not understand.

Attacking the US capitol with all our senators and representatives and the Vice President inside (stopping a constitutional process and threatening to hang the VP and others) and attacking a federal building in Portland Oregon with a bunch of cops inside is NOT THE SAME THING.

You poor thing. You are getting desperate. And calling us idiots is not gonna help your case. Whatever it is.

Let's be perfectly clear. You have no point. There is no comparison.

Attacking a federal building in and of itself is NOT an insurrection bro. Not even close.

Not a philosophy I support. Sounds a lot like a projection of your own feelings on the subject.

But we are obviously a violent species. But it's laughable that you would assign violent solutions to the Democrats after you Trumptilians just got done violently attacking your own capitol and murdering some and threatening to hang others.

You just can't get enough of that Trumpy insanity can you?

Give it up bro. The rest of America is tired of it. Trumpism is over. Done. Finished. Kaput.

All except the impeachment and expulsions.

The way I see it is like this:
After four years of Republicans being high on all the wrong things, it looks like the Bath Salts are finally wearing off.
For some Republicans at least. The rest are basket cases.

Probably some wishful thinking on my part. Seems some folks are never tired of being wrong. Hopefully fewer and fewer as time goes on and Trumpy ends up flying from a thousand paper cuts from all his legal fights to come.

One of the things I admire about Kamala is sensible shoes. Condi Rice walking across a gravelly air field in stilettos, I mean come on.
