Victoria Taft, at PJ Media, says what a lot of Americans are thinking this morning: “These are the people who want to make our health care and all our economic decisions for us?”
The Iowa caucus data operation just crashed and burned. That means that it could take days to get find out who actually won the Democratic contest â€“ the first of the 2020 presidential election cycle.
Gobsmacked candidates have come out to throw confetti, drop balloons, and declare “on to New Hampshire!”
There’s nothing else to do except to declare victory and move on. No one really knows, right?
Joe Biden’s lawyers have sent the Iowa caucus organizers a sternly worded letter ordering them not to reveal the winner until the results are cleared with them.
Speculation has begun in earnest. Bernie Sanders can’t help but think that mainstream Dems are after him again and will do anything to keep him from the party nomination. Robby Mook, Hillary Clinton’s data czar and strategist from 2016, has had suspicion cast on him since he participated in conceiving of the Iowa caucus data platform with Harvard University. Or, of course, Democrats could blame the Russians again without allowing the FBI another look-see under the hood. That’ll be good for another impeachment of Trump in a second term, right?
In the short term, bring on the boo-birds.
It will take a while before the Democrats live this one down.
Government-run health care anyone?
