That Didn’t Take Long

Anti-Trump Billionaire Tom Steyer Holds Event In Charleston, South Carolina

I’m not a supporter of Tom Steyer.  Don’t dislike the guy.  Just don’t know him.

So, what is there to know?  He’s pretty wealthy.  That’s OK.

He is pretty ego-driven.  Kind of a disqualifier, but couldn’t compare with the Don’s ego.  We’ve stared into the sun.  Steyer, bless his heart, is hardly a moon.

What else?  Oh, of course.  He really really wants a Trump impeachment hearing.  Not nearly connected to our power-center to understand how to pull that sword out of the stone.

But, really it’s not like this was ever a serious candidacy to begin with.  It’s a vanity candidacy.  Makes the Party look a little — well  little un-serious.  But, this is far from  a new thing, and nothing the Party isn’t used to repelling and re-shaping behind.

Today, though, it got a little weird. The team that Tom pays to keep his gilded row-boat afloat ran a gross new play:  The Soylent Green Special.  They put their heads down the took it right up the middle to poach off Jay Inslee’s implied misfortune.

The play:

OK, the gray-haired Eco guy is out.  We’re the impeach-guy.  That’s kind of thin and getting old.  What we’re going to do is morph into the gray-haired Impeachment & Eco guy.  No one will remember him to tell us apart.  Let’s send out an email announcing our Rundlefly.

Team Tom Blather Letter

Maybe there’s payoff.  He’ll hit the 2% threshold for a podium and a week or so more time in the sun.   As long as he doesn’t hurt anyone, I suppose no harm, no foul, right?  The play just struck me as funny.  Made me wonder if anyone will be drawn in by his eco insta-cred.


About johnnysdoe

I'm JSD. John. Here, that means Johnny S. Doe. Whatever. We all have jobs and life that makes being neon us on a billboard a liability to people around us / to ourselves. I can yap as JSD and not cause hell and a handful of headaches. I’d never put a soul in a tough spot, but, I can write about some shadowy dots that might help make a more complete pic of how reality jenga’s itself together behind all the frames you see while you’re armchairing about it. For all intents and purpose, outside that function, I’m just John. I work seamlessly behind the seams of the political process you do or don’t take part in. I’m not going to get into much of the about me here. I write for fun at Magnana Mouse Citizen Media with a couple other contributors. Nate Silver says there's a 99.9989 percent chance this will be the only place you will ever see me. If you actually know me, you’d pass out in shock realizing this was me flaunting around here. So, you won’t. That’s all. Now, you, back to work.
