Oh, 2017 is going to be spicy and—— delicious!
Kurt Schlichter @ Townhall: For Democrats, 2017 Will Be The Year of Living Stupidly
If you thought 2016 was packed full of liberal foolishness, just wait until you get a load of 2017. As 2016 ends, progressives enter the new year terrified that Donald Trump will continue to run circles around them, and their epic meltdown is only going to get more epically meltdownier. They’ve been shrill, stupid, and annoying for the last two months, but brace yourself for the next 12. Fear is going to make them go nuts – not the fear that Trump will be a failure, but the gut-wrenching, mind-numbing fear that Donald Trump will be a success.
And it looks like Trump may very well be one – something I previously and publicly doubted.
Let’s step back and think about who Trump has shown himself to be. Sure, he’s vulgar, and his knowledge of traditional conservatism is … limited. But he’s a competitor, and if he’s stupid like the liberals say then what does that make the liberals who Trump keeps beating as enthusiastically as Josh Marshall tweeting past midnight? Look, the guy is a property developer. If he does not deliver what he promises, the buyer won’t take occupancy and he loses money. Trump knows from his own experience – and the painful experience of the follow-through-free GOP – that the way to win is to deliver on his promises. It may ruffle our conservafeathers, but Trump promised to keep Carrier in the USA and he did it. As promised, the market is in the stratosphere and consumer confidence exists again. Trump promised to nominate conservatives and he did – do you think that whiny puffball Jeb Bush would have put up a cabinet full of Mad Dogs and activists aching to burn their own useless agencies to the ground?
The left is going to keep freaking out, and it may take well beyond the next 12 months for these losers to realize that it’s just not working, that they have hit bottom yet continued to dig. Take the whole Russian hacking thing. Hey, I’m certainly glad that all these Joe McCarthy-come-latelys have finally discovered that the Russians are bad. It would have been nice if they had realized that back when I was waiting to die in place in West Germany in the late-80s while these same jerks were buying into the original Russian political hack: the KGB-inspired and guided nuclear freeze movement.
Yes, in just three weeks, we will embark on a course of hope and change, despite the best efforts of the left. They aren’t going to stop, but they aren’t going to win. So, if you thought 2016 was full of liberal stupidity, just wait until you get a load of 2017.
Read the whole thing.
Lefties still flailing in the desert…
