The Cory Booker Lesson

It was a sad lesson learned from the unfortunate testimony of New Jersey Senator Cory Booker during the Attorney General confirmation hearings this week. Although Senator Booker had recently praised nominee and fellow senator Jeff Sessions as a friend and valued colleague, he was quick to try and brand Sessions as a racist when it more suited his purposes. It’s not that we learned anything about Booker we didn’t already know. Anyone who viewed his screamfest at the Democratic National Convention well knows that he is little more than another shrieking hysterical from the far-left fringe.

It’s not much of a secret that Booker fancies himself as the next Barack Obama. What we learned from him was how disgraceful an aspirant for the Democratic presidential nomination must be to curry favour with the party base. It’s not a matter of issues, democratic values or causes. Booker makes it clear it now takes a seething approach of insults, name calling and character assassination to resonate with those who will choose the next nominee. If this has become the face of what remains of the national Democratic Party, it’s no surprise there are but 472 Democrat counties left in the United States of America. Most Americans won’t accept a hateful approach and they very well shouldn’t. Democrats have 25 Senators up for election in 2018. If this is the approach they are taking, they will lose at least ten of them and 472 counties will seem like a high mark by comparison.  The time may have come to sell your stock in the Democratic National Railroad as it sounds more every day like this train has the disappearin’ railroad blues…
