Trump triumphs. Squad loses

The Democrat Party's Squad resembles a 1970s Hanna-Barbera superheroes cartoon. There's AOC Girl, Boston Baldy, the Palestinian Pouter and of course, the Somalian Brother Lover. 

The media makes them out to be the future of the Democrat Party. If so, Republicans will rule for decades.

About half the candidates the Squad endorsed in Democrat primaries lost. AP spun it as, "Progressive Democrats frustrated with 2022 primary losses."

A more accurate headline would be, "Even Democrats reject whack-a-doodle lefties."

The story said, "The frustration is particularly acute in New York, where Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defeated one of the highest-ranking congressional Democrats four years ago, injecting fresh energy among the party’s most liberal voters. This year, however, New York City Democrats chose Dan Goldman, a former federal prosecutor who is more of a centrist, over several progressive rivals, including freshman Rep. Mondaire Jones. About 30 miles north in the Hudson River Valley, a powerful establishment candidate, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, defeated a state lawmaker running to his left and backed by Ocasio-Cortez.

"Those setbacks have raised fresh questions about the progressive movement’s standing among Democrats. Progressive leaders urge against reading too much into those losses, particularly in New York, where repeated elections this summer after a redistricting battle left some voters disoriented or disengaged."

AOC also opposed Governor Hochul and Mayor Adams. Both were nominated.

She did even worse out of state.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump had another good year. He endorsed a record 240 candidates in the primaries.

92% of them won.

This was no fluke. He endorsed 121 candidates in the 2020 primaries, 97% of them won.

He endorsed 182 candidates in the general election. 78% of them won.

If he pulls that off again in this year's general election, Republicans will own Congress.

The press concentrated this year on the 8% of his endorsees who lost their primaries.

The Squad's much worse record drew sympathy from AP because hey, not only are they women but they are people of color. This places them off-limits to criticism. 

Getting information on the success rate of the Squad is difficult because unlike the press did with Trump, no one seemed to keep a scorecard.

The Brookings Institute said Trump endorsed candidates in 12% of the primaries. 

Brookings said Justice for All, Our Revolution, Indivisible, Bernie Sanders and the Squad combined to endorse candidates in less than 6% of the races. Only half won.

The Squad and Sanders and the rest are losers. The press praises them.

Trump won the presidency in his first bid for any office. His endorsement in a primary this year worked 92% of the time. The press treats him like a loser.

But AOC Girl, Boston Baldy, the Palestinian Pouter and the Somalian Brother Lover are superheroines.

Unfortunately, their kryptonite is the ballot box. Voters don't love them like the press does.

      DeSantis is 100% owned by the swamp. DeSantis is a fake news post turtle, 100% created and promoted to be China Mitch McConnells MAGA vote splitter.

  3. AOC is on the cover of Vanity Fair. She has sold out for celebrity status. She stands for nothing.
    Same with Bernie; former Communist now leads the good life. Today, even the Communists are corrupt.

    1. Aren't they always? Communism is inherently corrupt since the communists, who portray themselves as friends of the proletariat, always do better than anyone else.

    2. By definition, being a communist means you are corrupt!

  6. I don't know if AOC's political career dies. Apparently, since coming to Washington, despite her salary, she is worth $6 M. She isn't going to give any of this up willingly.

  7. It's true that voters don't like them like the media does, but their voters like them enough to keep reelecting them. That's what counts, unfortunately.

  8. - If he pulls that off again in this year's general election, Republicans will own Congress.

    Owning congress is one thing. Having a spine and a pair of balls to make meaningful decisions for the country is something else.
    I've seen this movie too many times, and the ending is always the same:
    R's win then fap away on a bunch of cleverly named but ultimately useless legislation at best.
    R's lose then vote with the D's on cleverly named but harmful legislation.

    Just once before I die, I'd like to see the alternative ending where the good guys win, the death star's blown up, the evil emporor is toast and all us ewoks have something to dance and sing about.

  9. Ocashew cortex gets her bribes from the Jane Fonda's and Alec Baldwin's. Whatever she doesnt spend on campaigning she can keep after paying the taxes- although she is slow to pay her taxes, she is quick to vote for blowing off her college debt, just like ilhan the warlords daughter...daughter in law...daughter.

  11. Not germane but I'm surprised that no one on the right or the wrong, including Don, is talking about the pipeline sabotage this morning.

    If done by the U.S., a giant step closer to WW III.

    The claim Russia destroyed it's own pipeline is rather ludicrous.

    1. Yes, agree. I am surprised by that, too, that there was no mention in the highlights of the news. Was it the Biden administration???

    3. Randy says: If the U.S. did the deed, we will find out soon enough. When Iranian centrifuges mysteriously blow up or a terror leader dies in a drive-by shooting, “everybody knows” Israel was behind it, but not one word of confirmation ever comes out. In America, as soon as we perform a stealth operation, it’s a race to see which low-level intelligence operative will be the first to brag to the press.

  13. I suspect that these people thought that THEY could replicate what President Trump has accomplished with his endorsements. They could be the democrat king makers. I suspect they never gave a thought to the work that President Trump puts into vetting, supporting and campaigning for his endorsed candidates. The belief and support from people for his efforts.

  18. My favorite part of watching D primaries is that the loser invariably blames racism, misogyny, homophobia, etc, etc on their loss - depending on the victim group checkboxes they pretend to fill in.

    Not a one of them ever realizes that, since its a primary, the voters they are denouncing are all DEMOCRATS.
