Kamala, Man!

Ok, so it’s Harris.  My first thought was, it’s scary that if Biden wins, next year at this time she  could be president!  She has only been in the Senate for 3 years.  She’s B. Hussein all over again!

We have had nothing but white men as presidents , ever, and it seems to me only fair that if it’s gonna be a woman, it should be a white woman.  The first time at least.  I mean when is it our turn?  (No,I’m not kidding, but that’s another story.)

But at least she’s from Ca which Dems woulda won anyway.  Plus, blacks don’t like her, she’s not “really” black.  And it hard to imagine the Defund Police crowd liking her because of her record as a prosecutor.

What do you think O Ratty?  Good or bad for us?

  1. Kamala’s career is largely based upon willie-sitting Willie Brown, hobnobbing with SF elite,  and pursuing Hispanics/Latinos in San Francisco.  Her ancestry is East Indian and Jamaican.  The only historical connection Kamala Devi Harris has with the American Black experience is importing them into the American colonies.

    Kamala Harris is thus the perfect DemSoc Candidate (aside from Mexicans who cannot be bought with a promise).  What is she thinking?  “I promise every American Black that this time, Dems will not flip away the football.” After 157 years of exploiting Blacks away from the American experience, this time a gang of ancient White Dems will not do it again.


    … Huey P. Long, “Every man a king!” SUCKERS.

  2. This is actually good news. She has zero credibility with the hardcore progs and is not a real threat to make a huge difference with too many independents. This is good. Plus she is too much like this:

  4. My late lawyer for my business passed the bar on his first try at the age of 19 although he hadn’t graduated college let alone law school. Of course I don’t think that is allowed now. He obviously was brilliant, however his weakness was women. He was married 6 times. He used to joke that as soon as he started dating a girl he would buy her a house.

    Golly I must be in a very elite group: I don’t know anybody who failed the bar exam!
    I have a feeling they’ll do away with it soon, anyway, killed off by Covid.  Big push on to let “diploma only”:graduates practice.

    Prepping  for it and taking it was a horrible, horrible experience.  FortunatelY  for my BMD, he was away at National Guard.  I had the walls and floor of our apartment completely papered in notes and outlines and the final few days I simply racketed  around the place reading whatever my eyes lit upon.  And that was after  having spent  the previous part of the summer sitting in a bar review course in some downtown hotel ballroom.  I’m getting PTSD just thinking of it.

    Hyp it is still as nerve wrecking, although probably with much less paper. I surely hope they do NOT do away with the Bar Exam. I think of it as a rite of passage that all lawyers must do. Not having to do it and yet still being able to practice would diminish the position. I would certainly feel less of a professional compared to you or CT who had to suffer through it and take your medicine.

  7. The real question is whether Joey Biden will be able to remember her name?

    Kamala … Parker-Bowles!  No, that’s not right.  Debbie Harris … or is it Debbie Harry?  At least she has lots of hair to sniff.

    The other issue is whether Hillary! Rodham Clinton is going to be pleased about this.  And assuming she is not, what is she going to do about it?  An ungrateful nation is one thing — an ungrateful Party is something else altogether.

    If one can find success after failing the bar exam, what does it say for those of us who have had theirs cancelled? Man I could be king of the world in a few years.

    I was wondering about you.  Were you taking it in Pa or Del? I think Pa’s is postponed to October, right?
    Oddly  enough, though, the ethics exam,  which law students now have to take after 2nd year, is being given, in person, in Philadelphia tomorrow.

    Considering that Sleepy Joe had already limited the field to Women Of Color, he made a pretty good choice on behalf of the Anti-America Party.   He could have done worse (which would have been better for us).

    I find it interesting that the Democratic Party now has a standard-bearer who is an old white male who tried to position himself as a “centrist” for all those years and now is running on a platform that is to the left of Obama.  It is also interesting that his running mate ran at the state level in California on a “tough on crime” platform and is now expected to show leadership in the “De-fund Police” campaign.

    Kamala is really well suited to join Team Biden.  She is a triangulator, as is he, as is the entire Party apparatus.  They are chameleons of the highest order.

  10. I see this as a sign of desperation. Kamala Harris is probably the only person desperate enough and willing to risk humiliation, to take this position. A sure sign, that the Democrats are not confident that Joe Biden will win is that Pete Buttigieg took a gig at Notre Dame . Rhodes Scholar, Veteran, Former Presidential candidate and Gay married, took a gig at Notre Dame for the next academic year (so much for any Catholic identity left at Notre Dame. They should change the name, Our Lady deserves better). But, it is not a sign of confidence for a possible cabinet position in the next Democratic administration, or even an ambassadorship.

    Let’s just say, they aren’t bringing their best and EVERYONE knows it. So what if the pathetic hacks in the media want to show Joe Biden riding a bike like nothing is wrong. Most people know he’s a dementia patient probably being fed jello in between embarrassing interviews, and Kamala is the worst kind of social climber. Completely lacking in any kind of competence, got her start on her back but wants to claim that she’s a “strong, independent, woman” I know chicks like her and can’t stand them. She’s not appealing and her selection is a sign that the Democrats are done.

    It is Del. The Board has cancelled the exam for 2020. They are going to announce a plan to allow us to practice under supervision and then we take it next July. My plan is to take Maryland’s in February since it is UBE and can allow me into more states and then take Del in July.

  17. From Mayor Pete’s Wiki page.

     

    Buttigieg was born on January 19, 1982, in South Bend, Indiana, the only child of Jennifer Anne (Montgomery) and Joseph A. Buttigieg.[18][19] His parents met and married while employed as faculty at New Mexico State University.[20] His father was born and raised in Hamrun, Malta, and had studied to be a Jesuit before emigrating to the United States and embarking on a secular career as a professor of literature at the University of Notre Dame near South Bend,[21][22] where he taught for 29 years.[23]

    “Less paper”: yes, I know that now, you take the bar review course online.  I have to say I don’t think I could have gotten through that period if I had had to do it all alone, without actually seeing all those other people who had just graduated law school, upon whom it was rudely dawning that we weren’t finished! That the worst was yet to come.
    (Throughout law school, nobody ever mentioned the bar exam to us.  It was like: you’ll be lucky to finish out this year.  Worry about the bar exam if  you ever get your degree.)

  20. From the first time I heard Kamala Harris speak in the Democrat candidate debate back—when—twenty years ago?, it seems, I’ve been calling her “Bad LPC”, and couldn’t imagine having to listen to her for more than a few seconds, regardless of what lies and folly she happened to be spouting at the moment.

    Let me explain.  Back in the 1990s, I wrote an Internet telephony program called Speak Freely, which was the first cross-platform (Windows and most varieties of Unix) application which allowed people to speak over the Internet that actually worked.  It was quite the thing in the day, and on at least one shuttle mission NASA streamed live air-to-ground audio over Speak Freely.  The program supported a variety of coder-decoders (“codecs”) to compress audio to allow it to be sent without delays over the slow Internet links of the time.  The most popular was the same coding used in GSM mobile phones, which worked well over 28.8 kb dial-up lines, but it also supported a more extreme coding called LPC-10, for slower dial-up connections.  “LPC” is an acronym for “Linear Predictive Coding”.  As long as you didn’t lose too many packets, LPC-10 was perfectly comprehensible, but it had its own distinct “twang”.  If you did drop some packets, its attempts to recover would sound kind of like “bwuh…bwuh…bwuh” in the mouth of a cartoon character.  Users of Skype in the early days will be well-acquainted with this.

    Well, that’s what Kamala Harris sounds like to me.  In fact, the first time I heard her, I thought that somebody might have patched a poorly-configured LPC-10 codec into her audio stream, but that’s what she sounds like all the time.

    Here is an example of computer-generated Bad LPC.

    Imagine having to listen to that all the time.

    I’m sure there were some people who voted for Trump because they couldn’t abide being screeched at by Hillary, and that one of the reasons Fauxcahontas didn’t catch on was that sanctimonious schoolmarm presentation.  Are voters ready for Bad LPC?

    Thanks for vote of confidence Dime. Starting Aug 24, I will be clerking for a judge here in Delaware, so I should get some pretty good exposure to many of the legal doctrines I will need to pass the Delaware Bar. I am less worried about Maryland because it is just an exam of the basic legal doctrines that they teach in every first year at all law schools. What is a contract? When can you use hearsay evidence? Does a US District Court have jurisdiction to hear the case? What is malice aforethought? What there a breach of due care? Did that cop’s search violate the 4th? That’s pretty much it.

    What about the part where Pete was an intel officer in the US Navy, perpetuated “forever war” as part of his military career, went and made millions with War Pig consulting firm McKenzie, and then after serving as mayor of a town that would be unknown if not for a pretty successful football program, ran for freaking president where this mayor ended up getting the vote of confidence from every major foreign policy schmuck in DC?
