CNN’s Cillizza Asks if Kamala Harris’ Moment Has Finally Arrived – RedState

7 mins read


No. I have not lost my mind.

But here’s the thing. If at first, you don’t succeed, make a COMPLETE fool out of yourself. My advice? No. The advice of CNN politics reporter Chris Cillizza? Oh hell, yeah. Or so it would appear.

First, this. In the movie “As Good as It Gets,” Greg Kinnear’s character, Simon, advises Jack Nicholson’s character, Melvin: “The best thing you have going for you is your willingness to humiliate yourself.” While Nicholson’s Melvin is hardly the only person on the planet for whom Simon’s observation was spot-on, CNN’s Chris Cillizza has taken that advice to heart on numerous occasions — and proved it every time.

Let’s begin at the beginning of this episode. As we reported last Friday in an article titled Has the Joe Biden Comeback Started? Cillizza wrote a delusional article in which he asked, presumably with a straight face: “Is this the beginning of a Joe Biden Comeback?”

As I suggested, Cillizza’s article was silly on its face. We’re not going to revisit the fairy tale details, but our intrepid CNN “journalist,” after first lamenting all of the awful things that have happened to Biden over the last 14 months — as opposed to the reality of Biden purposely making them happen — actually pointed to the inept president’s disastrous State of the Union speech as a sign that Corn Pop’s pal might just be on the cusp of a comeback; as if there were anything from which Biden could come back.

Toss in Biden’s disastrous do-nothing reaction to Vladimir Putin’s continuing genocidal rape of Ukraine, and Cillizza appears even more delusional — assuming it’s possible.

Turns out, as we reported on Monday, talk of a Biden comeback was “greatly exaggerated.”

Welp, guess what? Cillizza is back, America. With perhaps an even more ridiculous question: “Is this, finally, Kamala Harris’ moment?”

Notice the unnecessary commas — no doubt added for faux dramatic effect? “IS this… FINALLY… Kamala Harris’ moment?”

Before we answer the question, let’s first visit a few snippets of Cillizza’s Monday op-ed, in which he tries to build a case for Kamala time.

Beset by staff departures and lingering questions about how good a fit she is for the job, Harris has struggled to find her political footing. (Worth noting: That’s not terribly unique. Being vice president is a notoriously difficult and, at times, thankless, job.)

Beset by? You mean staffers fleeing a soul-destroying bully?

But with Harris jetting to Europe on Wednesday — amid the ongoing Russian invasion into Ukraine — the possibility exists that she is about to meet her moment. […] Harris is traveling to Poland and Romania at a decidedly fraught time.

Ya think? During which, Team Biden has done what to deter Vladimir Putin?

Harris will be tasked with smoothing over the situation as she arrives there late Wednesday on a mission to reassure one of NATO’s easternmost allies the United States remains committed to its security amid fresh worries about Russia’s intentions.

“Smoothing over” is not a job at which our inept veep is particularly effective.

The trip is the second time in a month that Harris has been dispatched to Europe as the Biden administration seeks to rally international support behind its efforts to isolate and punish Russia for the war in Ukraine.

How’d that first trip turn out, Chris? No matter:

This sort of tricky international diplomacy at a moment of crisis for Europe and the world is when (and how) leaders are made.

Wait — surely you’re not suggesting Cackles Kamala is adept at “tricky international diplomacy,” right?

If Harris can find a way through this fraught period with Poland, as well as the ongoing push by Ukraine for a no-fly zone, it would amount to a major win — not just for the Biden administration, but for Harris in particular.

Uh-huh. And if pigs could fly and hell freezes over, the world would be a different place.

Harris badly needs a moment to show that she could step into the top job. (It ain’t gonna happen.] Those moments don’t come along very often, but this week’s trip is very much one of them.

Yo, Chris? Can you please get back to us and let us know how that goes? Thanks.

Finally, the Harris Fan Boy speculated on the 2024 Democrat presidential ticket — and the scenario if Biden is not the nominee.

The world stage is where politicians prove their mettle and persuade voters as to whether they have what it takes to represent the entire United States as its leader.

Harris badly needs a moment to show that she could step into the top job. Those moments don’t come along very often, but this week’s trip is very much one of them.

Should we tell him? Nah, let’s just let him figure it out.
