With absolutely no whiff of an ulterior motive, Stacey Abrams of Georgia said this week that Joe Biden should definitely pick a woman of color as his running mate. Abrams, who has been highly touted by the media as an excellent choice to run with Biden despite having absolutely no qualifications that would recommend her for the position, told “The View” that it would be a good way for Biden to show gratitude to the black women who saved his campaign from extinction.
Co-host Sunny Hostin set Abrams up, asking her if it wouldn’t be a “slap in the face” to black voters in the South if Biden picked a white woman to run as his vice president.
Abrams was initially diplomatic: “I think Vice President Biden is going to make a smart choice, and I appreciate the fact that he has lifted up women as being a necessary partner in this.”
But then, recognizing that this was her chance to put a little pressure on Biden, she continued: “I would share your concern about not picking a woman of color because women of color — particularly black women — are the strongest part of the Democratic Party, the most loyal, but that loyalty isn’t simply how we vote. It’s how we work, and if we want to signal that that work will continue, that we’re going to reach not just to certain segments of our community, but to the entire country, then we need a ticket that reflects the diversity of America.”
We’re not really sure what any of that means, but it’s in line with the usual gobbledygook that comes out of this woman’s mouth. Making a possible exception for Beto O’Rourke, we can’t remember the last time a politician with Abrams lack of qualifications and experience received this much darling attention from the liberal media.
Abrams biggest claim to fame is in losing the race to be Georgia’s governor in 2018. She milked that loss for everything that it was worth, insisting to this day that she was somehow cheated out of her rightful victory. She has never produced a scintilla of evidence proving this claim. But since the media isn’t in the habit of correcting liberal black Democrats, her dispute of the election’s results is essentially treated as fact.
But hey, if Biden wants to pick her as his running mate, we wholeheartedly endorse the plan. Given Biden’s, um, difficulties with maintaining coherence, voters will be looking closely at his VP pick with the knowledge that she could very easily turn out to be the nation’s first female president. If even a small percentage of voters fear that they’re casting a vote for Abrams to be president, Trump’s re-election is all but guaranteed.
