Time Magazine’s Person of the Year goes to two Leftist/Marxist/Commies who ain’t my President or Vice President. YES, ‘For the first time in the magazine’s history, Time has awarded Person of the Year not just to a president-elect but also to a vice president-elect.
The publication did not splinter the historic laurel to Joe Biden’s running mate thanks to her ability to deliver a crucial state — the departing senator’s state of California has proven the bluest in the union for decades — but rather due to the #historic nature of Kamala Harris’s success.
Nobody doubts the monumental success of what Harris’s rapid rise represents. Harris herself sits at the intersection of American stories finally triumphant —the daughter of immigrants, both Asian American and black, and the Baptist wife of a Jewish husband waiting in the wings to support the second-ever Catholic to occupy the Oval Office in our nation’s history.
But Biden is perhaps the more spectacular figure, don’t you think? He’s the first Democrat in nearly 30 years to unseat a first-term incumbent, and he clobbered a field of dozens of brilliant and diverse liberals without any favors from the mainstream media. In fact, his own eventual second in command was already cold on the electoral scrap heap by the time the election had gotten to Iowa.
In another narrative, Biden is the septuagenarian chosen by tens of millions specifically because they knew he was the only one temperamentally and tactically capable of beating the Bad Orange Man. Despite the worst inclinations of liberals chanting, “Defund the police,” Biden drastically outperformed the down-ballot leftists in even the bluest of districts. Realistically, Uncle Joe proved that his boring and occasionally brutish brand of retail and pragmatic politics worked. The man who famously backed the Iraq War and opposed the surge, opposed the Osama Bin Ladin raid, supported the Libya assault, and spearheaded the Serbia bombing while ignoring the Rwandan genocide, beat the self-aggrandizing Cheeto King.
And yet, Harris claims the president-elect’s spotlight. Don’t believe me? Watch for yourself and wonder if even Richard Nixon could have trusted such a celebrity over Spiro Agnew himself.’https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/time-makes-kamala-and-that-old-dude-person-of-the-year?utm_source=In%20Our%20Opinion_12/11/2020&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=WEX_In%20Our%20Opinion&rid=24803220
