Thanks for playing, Tulsi. You were already dangling by the most gossamer of threads. And now your failure is complete.

From Politico:

Hawaii congresswoman and Democratic candidate for president Tulsi Gabbard said Sunday that her party’s leadership was not blameless for the partial government shutdown that is now approaching a month, accusing both sides of posturing and refusing to compromise.

“The problem here is that this issue, like so many others in Washington, are being relegated to partisan politics,” she said in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“Where if a Republican is putting forward a proposal, Democrats are going to shoot it down. If Democrats are putting forward a proposal, Republicans are going to shoot it down, really thinking about which party can call a win on this issue.”

Uh, no, Tulsi.

The issue here is that Republicans put forward a monumentally stupid proposal and Democrats refuse to consider it … because it’s monumentally stupid. Meanwhile, reasonable proposals, like allowing contributing members of society who technically aren’t citizens (but know no home other than the U.S.) to stay in this country and continue to contribute, are shot down by Republicans frothing racists.

There simply aren’t two equal and opposite sides to this story.

It already looks like we’re going to have too many qualified candidates. There’s just no room left in my brain space for an unqualified pretender who doesn’t know patent nonsense when she sees it.

Do you know what is monumentally stupid? The Left and Democratic Establishment are cannibalizing themselves. This is the end of the Democratic Party… the final death throws. Gabbard is one of the few lefties that can unite the country, and all I see from whatever metastasized cancer that has taken hold of the left, is irrational vitriol. The Southern Strategy the left always brings up has come full circle. Only one option remains, the Democratic Party must go extinct and be replaced with a Libertarian left party to balance it all out again.
