File Photo: Sen. Tim Kaine
Let’s give a big round of very Old Rich White Male Applause to Tim Kaine… because it’s not as if the Black Vote is going anywhere! Hear! Hear!
Hillary has decided to prop herself up with the Junior Senator from Virginia. Why? Because the Are You Ready Campaign has determined to run with “Boring” as their positioning statement. Oh… and the Senator speaks El Espanol. Yes, he actually speaks Spanish, it’s not some insulting and foolishly offensive accent implying he does. Not only will this be new to the Hillary Campaign, the addition of Kaine genuinely brings two new language skills to the effort ramping it up to a total to two. Impressive.
Most importantly, Kaine supplies the Hillary camp with something she desperately needs… he humanizes the candidate.
In the same way the DNC quietly promoted the faux-candidacy of Bernie Sanders in order to make Hillary appear “Centrist”, they have continued with that strategy by tapping the Senator for VP. The thinking goes that he will allow her to appear; not covered in hair, down to earth kinda, intelligent, less green, female and possibly human by comparison while delivering the hairy, non-bathing, eco-terrorist, beta male, could be a monkey vote. All things she desperately needs if she is going to win the presidency.
If you ask us here, it’s a wise choice indeed.
For full disclosure… I know Tim Kaine. Well, he’s more of a distant cousin. While we are both from Virginia, his side of the family tended to be, how shall I put it, a bit closer. I got the functional alcoholism and they all now have wings…. and they wear shoes. (The shoes are weird.)
