     I didn’t bother to watch any of the “debates” among the various Democrat aspirants to the 2020 presidential nomination. Thus I was unaware of much that took place in those exchanges that would later become items of controversy. Most recently, the following surfaced:

     Yes, Gentle Reader: Kamala Harris really did say all those things about Joe Biden. You’d think she’d be unwilling to be in the same time zone with him, wouldn’t you? Well, as the saying goes, that turned out not to be the case.

     Many in the Right have speculated that Kamala Harris would be the real president during Biden’s term: a power behind the throne who’d work the senile old corruptocrat like a hand puppet. That might be so; it’s hard to tell from outside the White House. Of one thing we may be sure: Harris wanted “in,” and her one and only ingress was to accept the vice-presidential nod from a man she castigated so severely that we could easily imagine them with pistols at dawn.

     Tells you something about the importance of watching what politicians do rather than what they say, doesn’t it?
