YOU THINK THE PROGRESSIVES ARE GOING NUTS...:

Run, Howard, run (Matt Bai, January 31, 2019, Yahoo News)

I was a little taken aback this week by the level of outrage and vitriol spewed at Howard Schultz, the 65-year-old billionaire who built Starbucks into a global brand, after he said he was considering a self-funded, independent campaign for president. The way the left reacted, you'd have thought he was getting rid of almond-milk lattes.

"There is zero appetite for this, and there is an urgent need for the Democratic candidate to win in 2020," said Brian Schatz, the professional tweeter who is also a senator from Hawaii, echoing the common sentiment that Schultz would only serve to split the Democratic vote and reelect Trump.

"Vanity projects that help destroy democracy are disgusting," tweeted Neera Tanden, a key adviser to the last Democratic nominee, who believed that no one else should be able to run for the Democratic nomination but her and then delivered the country into the hands of a covert Russian agent.

Dan Pfeiffer, a senior adviser in the Obama administration, accused Schultz of creating headlines so he could sell his new book, because I guess what Schultz needs is more money. (At Schultz's first book event in Manhattan, a heckler screamed: "Don't help elect Trump, you egotistical billionaire a**hole!")

Liberal media got into the act, too, arguing that Schultz was looking to a bygone time when Americans were tired of partisan politics and still thought government could solve problems in a peaceable way, whereas we know they're now totally radicalized and happy as hell to scream at each other on Twitter all day long. (Or maybe we journalists are confusing American voters with ourselves.)

I guess the lesson here is that liberals are all about breaking up big monopolies and rigged systems, unless it happens to be the two-party chokehold on Washington.


...wait'll the Right realizes he's a threat to Donald.
