From the Sublime to the Ridiculous
The following article appeared in
Powerline on January 31st
(Scott Johnson) and I
both thought President Trump did a terrific job last night. When his speech was
over, I retired to type my post. As I was doing so I could hear peals of
laughter coming from the room where my wife and I, with one of our daughters,
had watched the SOTU. What was so funny? It was Joe Kennedy III’s response to the
SOTU on behalf of the Democratic Party, along with the reaction to Kennedy’s
speech on Twitter.
Joe Kennedy III
From the time Kennedy’s name was
announced, I thought it was a bizarre choice. At this moment in history, the
Democrats think voters are looking for a dynasty? Along those lines, I believe
there actually are Democrats who look forward to the day when Chelsea Clinton
can be their presidential nominee. This is commonly known as tone-deafness.
But it wasn’t just that. Joe Kennedy
III (someone on Twitter said he is holding out for Joe IV or V, like a King
Louis) looked strange, with a shiny substance–variously interpreted as drool
and too much Chappaquiddick-stick–gleaming next to his mouth. To top it off,
this was the visual as he delivered the speech:
Let’s just say that no Kennedy should
ever give a speech standing in front of what appears to be a wrecked motor
Twitter was ablaze with ridicule.
Here are a couple of the more charitable tweets:
“It's pretty rich
hearing Joseph Kennedy III, who ran for a Massachusetts Congress at age 31,
railing against a system that is "forcefully rigged for those at the
“Well I have my fingers
crossed for that well spoken young man! I really hope he wins his student
Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer
There is a serious point here. Last
night’s SOTU was a fiasco for the Democrats, not only because the president did
such a good job, but because the Democrats’ geriatric brigade was repeatedly on
display. Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer, Bernie Sanders, Chuck Schumer and
others–all looked prune-faced and sour, if not positively cadaverous.
The Democrats said they chose Joe
Kennedy III to deliver their response because he represents the future of their
party. If that is true, they are in deeper trouble than we thought.
