I almost feel sorry for the mainstream press and the Democratic party. Who am I trying to kid? I’m ecstatic. They went into the election, hoping that Joe Biden would win and that his cognitive lapses would give them the opportunity to replace him with Kamala Harris.
Now, less than a year in with Joe Biden sitting at a 36% approval rating, they cannot replace him with Harris because her approval rating is only 28%.
Their best option is very bad. They could do one other thing. If they all keep the pressure on Kamala and force her to resign, then Biden could select another vice president who would replace him when his mind forces him out. There is a fly in that ointment as well.
Biden would have to pick someone who could be confirmed with at least one Republican vote. That is because there is no vice president to cast the deciding vote.
So, now, the mainstream press is attacking Kamala Harris in earnest. Her office is resigning in numbers quicker than they can be replaced mostly because many won’t take the jobs. Harris is a loser and they don’t want to be seen as a loser too.
The latest attacker is The Washington Post. Harris has always been a loser and even when she did win the attorney general’s job in California, it was a very narrow win in a very blue state. When she ran for president, she did not even win 1 delegate.
On Saturday, it was the left-leaning Washington Post’s turn to pile on the vacuous Veep.
Staffers who have worked for Kamala Harris say one of her consistent problems is that she refuses to wade into briefing materials prepared by staff members, then berates employees when she appears unprepared because she wouldn’t do the necessary prep work. https://t.co/X0HsOHefJm

I am not sure what’s worse for Harris and Democrats in the lengthy piece that drew on conversations with nearly 20 administration officials: criticisms from anonymous former staffers castigating her management style or an on-the-record comment from former staffer Sean Clegg, who compared her to former President Donald Trump.
The article writers tried to defend Harris with clichés from the untrustworthy Jen Psaki (herself likely a main reason the more-competent Symone Sanders quit this week) but then noted, “Still, the quartet of announced departures were all for jobs that helped shape the vice president’s image to the American people — important roles for one of the nation’s most closely watched politicians, one whose first year missteps have been picked apart in the public eye.”
