Democrats knew that Kamala Harris represented a political Achilles’ heel in the 2024 election.
The panic is reaching critical mass.
And Democrats decided to dump Kamala Harris for the last reason you would ever suspect.
Washington Post columnist David Ignatius serves as the voice of the D.C. swamp.
Ignatius’s columns reveal to the public what establishment power brokers whisper to each other in private.
And sometimes these Washington elites use Ignatius to send a message to their fellow bigwigs.
That’s exactly what happened when Ignatius published a column saying that both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris should bow out of the 2024 election so Democrats could field a new candidate to defeat Donald Trump.
Ignatius worried that Biden is too old and in the event that Biden stepped aside, Harris would be the natural successor.
But with polls showing Kamala Harris’s approval rating sitting at 39 percent, Ignatius wrote that Harris is “less popular than Biden,” adding that “Harris has many laudable qualities, but the simple fact is that she has failed to gain traction in the country or even within her own party.”
There is one problem with telling Kamala Harris to hit the bricks – the incentive structure in the Democrat Party makes it such that anyone who tries to force Harris off the ticket or out of the race would face smears about being a racist and a sexist.
Woke identity politics boxed the left into a corner with Harris.
MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” made that clear.
Co-host Joe Scarborough tried to claim Harris is no more incompetent than previous vice presidents.
“There’s sort of this undercurrent, like she’s Black and she’s a woman! And that’s why people don’t like her, because she’s the vice president… And I just go, where were you when Dan Quayle was vice president? Where were you?” Scarborough began.
Scarborough then claimed that Democrats – who knelt at the altar of George Floyd and wore pink hats in solidarity with the Women’s March – are all a bunch of racist and sexist haters for daring to question Harris.
“You talk about David Ignatius. Obviously, David is not writing this because she’s a Black woman. David is, David is hearing this because everybody else is worried that she’s a Black woman somehow and they’re not, then America is not going to vote for a Black woman,” Scarborough continued.
The Biden team tried on multiple occasions to reboot Harris’s image with the public.
Each rescue operation – beginning with making Harris the administration’s border czar – ended in humiliating failure.
Now Democrat Party elites floated a trial balloon about how to get both Harris and Biden out of the way in 2024.
But that balloon popped almost instantly.
