The chameleon

Ben Shapiro: "How the Quest for Power Corrupted Elizabeth Warren."

David Brooks basically had the same story in the NY Times today: Warren wrote a book that advocated conservative themes such as school vouchers, but utterly disavowed it to grab power.

"Their candidate advocated things, but then took it back."

Pfft. Seriously?

At some subpineal level, you realize how artificial and theatrical this incensed finger pointing is in 2019.

"She lied about her background!"
"Some of what he says is confused or untrue!"
"America cannot afford a pathological liar in the Oval Office!"
"I spy, with my little eye, an example of political hypocrisy!"
"Her economic plan doesn't add up!"
"He's too old!"
"She never apologizes when she's wrong!"
"The so-called advocate of the common man is rich!"
"He may be corrupt!"

Every year, The Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. He's not coming to yours.
