Veepstakes

Note: I am doing a Q&A type of show this week, so if you have any small topics of interest, pass them along in the comments.


Between now and the start of Donald Trump’s debate with the CNN hosts on Thursday night we will learn the name of his running mate. Trump said that his pick will be at the debate, so it has been assumed that person will be revealed at that point, but Trump is being cagey about it. He has invited various people to stand around the backstage area during the debate, so maybe the suspense will continue. There is no audience for this debate, as Joe Biden is now easily startled by loud noises.

It used to be that the running mate selection was one of the first big tests of a party’s candidate because it spoke to the strength of the candidate. In 1976 Jimmy Carter picked Walter Mondale to balance the ticket geographically and to assure Washington insiders that he would not cause any trouble. Reagan did a similar thing in 1980 when he picked former CIA head George Bush. In both cases, the running mate pick suggested the candidate had enough insider support.

For establishment candidates, the running mate was about geographic balance or shoring up a party constituency. In 1988 George Bush had all the Washington support he needed, but the party base found him to be a bit weird so he went with Dan Quayle from Indiana on the theory he would win over heartland voters. In 2004 John Kerry picked John Edwards to add geographic balance and add some personality to a ticket featuring a man who appeared to be made of wood.

The running mate pick has lost its luster of late. No one remembers who Hillary picked for her running mate. He may be dead now for all anyone remembers. Trump picked Mike Pence, mostly because Pence is so boring. He was not expected to add anything to the ticket but serve as Trump’s emissary to the uniparty. George Bush II picked Dick Cheney because the people who picked George Bush II told him to pick Dick Cheney so he could run things from inside the administration.

The funny thing about the running mate job is it has always been the death sentence for a political career. Vice Presidents rarely go on to win the top job. Fifteen vice presidents went on to become president, but eight of those got the job when the president died or was assassinated. Only four of those won an election in their own right. It is one of the other rarities of the 2020 election. Not only did a man with dementia become the most popular man in the country, but he was also a former VP.

This may be about to change with Trump. Since he is limited to one term, his running mate will be viewed as the guy who inherits the MAGA movement and gets the Trump endorsement for running in 2028. We are about to have a great die off in both parties, so it will be a scramble over the next decade among the toadies and flunkies to see who gets to pretend to be in charge of things. Being a second or third banana is going to become a coveted position.

You can see this with Biden. His people picked a cackling simpleton as his running mate because it was seen as life insurance. Installing a moron like Harris as president is too much even for the psychopaths running Washington, so picking her as the VP meant no one was going to put a pillow over Biden’s face. That was a fine plan for the Biden family, but now the party is stuck with a guy who soils himself in public while staring blindly out into space during public events.

This is what will make Trump’s pick interesting. Has he managed to learn anything about his moment in the timeline? If he picks another stooge or someone dictated by the party, then it is another reminder that Trump is not a historical figure as in a man who is shaping history, but rather he is a feckless ignoramus who just happened to be swept up by the tides of history. If he picks someone expected to continue the fight, then maybe Trump has learned something.

Ten years of Trump says the way to bet is that he picks the worst possible option as his running mate, which would be someone like Glenn Youngkin. He is a less masculine version of Liz Cheney. He has Washington support, is loved by the neocons, and has deep ties to the economic elites. If Trump picks him, it means the regime has decided to let him win and then wear his administration as a skin suit. In effect, the populist rebellion will have officially died.

Of course, the main problem for Trump picking an heir is that his MAGA movement has zero institutional support. It is why every candidate in the primary was a zombie from the plant where they produce Republican politicians. The only guy who sounded like Trump was Vivek Ramaswamy and he was probably faking it. Then you have the fact that you cannot let South Asians anywhere near power in a white country. Just look at what is happening in Canada and Britain.

In this regard, Trump’s final big decision as a player on the political stage reflects the reality of the system. It is beyond reform, so that means there is no solution through the normal functioning of the system. You cannot vote your way out of the problems of democracy because the point of democracy is to prevent it. “Our democracy’ is a rigged game in which the house must always win. In the end, that will be the lesson of Trump and the populist rebellion that produced him.

If Trump Were Smart, he’d announce he is choosing a literal Dirt Person, a white working class man in his late 30s like a carpenter or truck driver, with a quiet wife and normal children, not some Evangelical Christian lunatic, not a scumbag politician, not some lapdog general, and not some girlboss. That would probably frighten the Regime and Vichy even more than the Bad Orange Man himself, because it would force them to deal with a normal human, and it would be an indelible symbol and rallying point for White America, a propaganda gold mine for a real movement… Read more »

Pickle Rick hit on something that Tucker and Sailer both gloss over. The people who read/watch both these guys are vastly more political compared to the real target of the Establishment. In other words, no one is picking on the white Mitt Romneys or Liz Warrens or even the Tuckers of the country – the establishment’s hatred is way more narrowly targeted at the white working class. Unfortunately, the white working class is too busy trying to keep dinner on the table to dabble in ideas. These are the people Trump reaches. To put it into left-speak, these people “matter”… Read more »

Yeah, the “Obama is running things behind the scenes” talk is hilarious. Even when he was president, Barry was a lazy actor who’d rather spend his time on the golf course followed a trip to the bath house than get involved with talking his producers and directors about the script.

Even a fired-up Trump wouldn’t put a dent in the Uniparty, and Trump, oddly given everything that’s being thrown against him, seems to be going through the motions this time.

It’s a good point.

Is he making decisions or is actually in charge, of course not, but he’s still acting in largely the same role he was when he occupied the WH. Unlike Bush who slinked away in shame and disappeared for a solid decade, Obama maintained a house in DC and is put in front of the camera whenever… Read more »

Another factor, generally overlooked (especially by conservatives who can easily calculate the IQ of the son of a Kenyan politician and an American honeypot): Obama is very, very dumb.

As a fifty year old man, his favorite tv show was Entourage. He’s a basketball fan who can’t spell Syracuse. He was the president who “normalized” visible teleprompters—and using them, he mispronounced every word that was even slightly uncommon (“corpsman” most famously). Etc.

He can’t even run his mouth.

Best insight yet. One that needs to be heard more in “Normie” media discussion.

Trump being Trump, he will probably make a dumb pick, or at least pick someone who doesn’t take any of the spotlight away from him and his monstrous ego. I’d say Youngkin because he is bland and demure and from a swing state but who knows? It really doesn’t matter much anyhow… there’s simply no way the Ruling Class will allow Trump to win again, even assuming that he will get enough votes to do so. Right-wingers blithely assume that Biden is toast, but I’m not so sure. Spend some time among some Blue-state shitlibs. They’re not voting for Trump.… Read more »

The stuff Trump has been saying lately – endless support for Israel’s genocide, promising “Nikki” Haley a job in his administration, staple green cards to diplomas – tells me that he is trying to kill off the populist rebellion, that Trump is killing Trumpism. He probably made some deals to stay out of prison. To that end, maybe his strategy will be the reverse of what we have thought – instead of picking someone to signal to the regime, he will pick someone to signal to his base.

You and Bruno are both right. Granted, the wellspring of anger is very real and it isn’t going anywhere. That said, without a charismatic figure such as Trump to give it voice, that anger will shout itself hoarse in the wilderness. The question is, is there another Big Man out there over yon horizon to receive the MAGA mantle from BoM? Possibly. But I don’t have a clue as to who it might be.

At this point in time I have accepted these facts: Someday we will be wiping our asses on Hundred Dollar bills as a side effect of America’s very own Soviet Union level extinction event. Also you had better have plenty of arms and ammunition, for the ballot box and jury box will be replaced by the bullet box.

I don’t see how our future can be much different. On the other hand, it would be a wonderful day when the lawyers and judges are afraid of the bullet box and the very act of showing their faces in public.

Correct. The way Putin brought Russia back from the post-Soviet hellscape to where it is today is one of the greatest feats in modern history. We won’t be so lucky. The Russians, despite 70 years of communist evil, still share a common history and values, while Christianity came out stronger because of the oppression. We no longer have any of those. The best case scenario is some kind of split along ideological lines. However, that might not work either, and probably will involve serious violence.

Just for the record: I’m sure exactly zero of that actually happened. I doubt she ever even had a dog, much less shot it herself, or even ordered it shot. It’s just something she thought would make her sound tough, so she had her ghostwriter put it in the book. But that’s the official public claim, anyway, or at least was, until the utterly predictable to anyone other than a Cloud Person outcome: That she killed her dog because it was dangerous and failed its hunting training.

Noem’s dog story happened. She is a rarity in politics in that she did actual work in her family’s ranch and other businesses before entering politics. You are right in that her reason for including it was to make her sound tough to voters and she was completely tone deaf to how it was going to go over with them. I don’t think she was ever under serious consideration despite her affair with Trump advisor Corey Lewendowski. National interest in Noem died off quickly after Covid and being from a small state Trump will win easily does nothing for him.

I don’t care about the dog. They put down rabid dogs in the local gas chamber every day. What I care about is that she was enough of a cheeseball to let some political creep like Corey Lewandowski in her pants. And even if nothing happened, which I highly doubt after reading the accounts, the fact that she wasn’t smart enough to keep someone like him at arm’s length so that people wouldn’t talk proves that she’s a moron.

The dog thing was very ugly, as a press event, but she’d removed herself from MAGA types’ consideration long before. Her state’s legislature passed the first mild tranny resistance bill, her corporate masters told her to veto it—trannies are more valuable to “business” than they are to trannies—and she did. Republicans who keep up with the news turned against her instantly and forever. I think Noem’s dog story isn’t about Noem, but part of the GOP’s “Shapiro Strategy.” No amount of establishment rage/persecution/lies can make Trump unpopular, so it’s up to other Republicans to remind voters that Republicans are repulsive… Read more »

The question for us to ask about any Black VP choice, is what will he/she do if/when she/he ascends to the Presidency—either through election or death? WRT Z-man’s opinion, I believe a Black VP—other than the moron we currently have—is a very elevated step to further office. Ben Carson is *not* a moron, he’s a nice guy, but he’s never had political power.

Even if Trump were a perfect candidate otherwise, his age would prevent him from making any durable impact. He was too old in 2016.

Completely wild guess here, but I suspect that it has something to do with Oct. 7.
