Kirsten Gillibrand ends her pathetic, opportunistic presidential candidacy

Kirsten Gillibrand ends her pathetic, opportunistic presidential candidacy

She threw mentors like the Clintons under the bus when convenient in order to seize on the #MeToo movement to advance herself. Al Franken was sacrificed at the altar of Kirsten Gillibrand’s ambition.

There never was a reason for a Kirsten Gillibrand presidential candidacy.

In a world of opportunistic, unprincipled, chameleon-like politicians, she stood out as among the most opportunistic, unprincipled and chameleon-like.

Gillibrand was as privileged as they come, child of a local political dynasty who had her House and Senate seats handed to her on silver platters. Yet she seized on attacking privilege as a campaign theme.

She ran as a conservative Democrat in her congressional district when convenient, as a liberal Democrat when more convenient for Senate and president. It’s not that there was no core to Kirsten Gillibrand, it’s that the core was unflattering.

She threw mentors like the Clintons under the bus when convenient in order to seize on the #MeToo movement to advance her presidential ambitions, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand disavows Bill Clinton now that he can’t help her anymore.

Al Franken was sacrificed at the altar of Kirsten Gillibrand’s ambition.

Voters can sense a phony, and Gillibrand’s photo is in the dictionary under “phony”.

An extra-special good riddance.

Thanks Prof Jacobson, but “she ran as a conservative dem”? Gimme a break, this pile of manure was never “consevative”. Anyone who celebrates abortions is evil IMHO.

    With all the respect that the good professor deserves, in the times we are living the term “Conservative Democrat” is an oxymoron.

    The professor said that she ran as a conservative Democrat. He did not say that she actually voted in Congress as a conservative Democrat. Let that be a lesson to everyone.

    She was a conservative Democrat before she was appointed Senator by Paterson. She had an A rating from the NRA, and bragged about owning guns.

    You seem to have missed this part:

    “In a world of opportunistic, unprincipled, chameleon-like politicians, she stood out as among the most opportunistic, unprincipled and chameleon-like.”

    What is it that the professor has to give you a break about? She was not just never conservative, she was never anything. That’s the professor’s point. Like most politicians, she’s a polymorphic life form. I think of her as the Democrats’ Mitt Romney.

    No she never was a conservative Dem but she pretended to be one before she ran for Senate by saying positive things about gun owners and 2nd Amendment.

    Of course she never meant them, but a true hardcore progressive could never say those things.

    She was an opportunist who pretended to be for those when necessary to get elected, and dropped them as soon as she needed to be against them to get elected.

    In that sense, the Professor is right. She did pretend to be more conservative at one time.

    She was much more conservative when she ran for Congress. She got an A rating from the NRA, said the border needed to be closed, etc.

    was she a conservative when she said we don’t have a right to a presumption of innocence along with five other democrat senators?

This whole post can be saved and used for the rest of the Dems/Progs candidates as they drop out. Just change the name and bio information.

Good use of ‘putor memory.

    She’s not quite the same as the rest of the pack. She’s the slipperiest, the one who will say absolutely anything—true, false, or ridiculous—if she thinks it will benefit her at the moment. All the other candidates at least stand for something fairly reliably, even if that something is vile and blatantly un-American . . . except Harris, who is as mercurial as Gillibrand.

With Kirsten the Barmaid out of the picture, Skateboard Beto should be a shoe-in for the Most Vapid Award.

“Al Franken was sacrificed at the altar of Kirsten Gillibrand’s ambition.”

So she’s not completely useless after all! I guess that wasn’t quite enough to get anyone to care about her, though.

Now she can go back to saying every republican male exploits women while her dada and slick willy are held to a lower standard.

Talking about polymorphic lifeforms, looks like Paddy O’Rourke’s campaign just imploded… again…

Time for Paddy Reloaded 3.0? The stupid runs deep with Paddy.

Time for a neolgism:

Dicitionary

gilibrand> noun

a shameless opportunist with no integrity. A reprobate utterly devoid of gratitude or principle.

Didn’t even realize she was running.

Truly, she was the least worthy candidate on that stage…and that includes the New Age Mystic! I would give anything to have Marianne Williamson replace Beto or Castro. The debates will not be the same without her!

    artichoke in reply to Leslie Eastman. | August 29, 2019 at 10:30 am

    She was doomed as soon as the video of her leading a “racial healing” session came out. That might have been better saved for later in the campaign.

Might well end up as a Dem candidate’s veep pick.
Most of them go into a prez run, to test themselves….make alliances…..get great administration job, if the eventual winner fancies them.

An unscrupulous opportunist from the same cloth as Aaron Burr, whom Alexander Hamilton compared to Catilin, a ancient Roman politician infamous for the same.

But, but, who will explain “White Privelidge” to us?

and STILL no one brings up her connection to NXVIM. That would have been an excellent illustration of who is actually using the #MeToo miasma, but it was allowed to sleep.

This should help DeBlasio’s campaign 🙂

This is bad news. We should be rooting for as many of the Democrat morons to stay in as long as possible. Every dollar donated to Gillibrand is a Democrat dollar wasted.

Don’t let the swinging door hit you in your ample ass Kirsten!

    Now my day would be complete if Beano O’Riley saw the light.

      The last thing we want is Skateboard Beto out. No one else is so shallow and makes the Dems look so bad (except for Sleepy Joe Biden – the Human Gaffe Machine).

      Beto always comes up with gems – like he and his ultra-rich wife only contributed 0.3% of their income to charity because running for public office is a form of charity.
