If it comes to Seth Moulton vs Dementia Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Tubby Jim McGovern, I guess you know which side I’m on.
I don’t bow down to anyone in my longtime disdain for wannabes like John Kerry (jg).
When Moulton was running for Congress for the first time, I asked him on my radio show to discuss his ego, business, and a supposed office he claimed was, I believe, London.
Moulton’s answers were unsatisfactory, to say the least. I haven’t spoken to him since, nor have I wanted to, and he probably feels the same way about me.
After a half-century of morally challenged and/or dopey North Shore congressmen – Mike Harrington, Nicky Pockets Mavrouls, Peter Torkildson, John Tierney – Seth seems the perfect fit in that long continuum of non-institutions.
Moulton is a legend in his mind, as seen in his laugh-out-loud jokes for House Speaker after his even more “campaign” for president last year.
But now the ex-Marine is holding the failed Democrat Deep State establishment accountable for her criminal incompetence. Doesn’t anyone have to do this?
Sure, Michigan’s Moulton and the Republicans were grand. But it is by far the worst disaster in US foreign policy. Americans are getting killed by terrorists for no good reason. We have betrayed our allies.
And Moulton will be forever shunned in the now humble Democrat society for speaking this obvious truth to power. Or so we are told by the media courtiers of the regime. Wow!
Does this mean that Jim McGovern did not invite Moulton to Havana on the delegation’s next pilgrimage? Seth won’t get a gold-embossed invitation to the 2022 May Day celebrations in Caracas?
Let’s face it, the Massachusetts congressional delegation is like Groucho Marx’s old joke that he doesn’t want to belong to a club that would have had him as a member.
Say what you will about JoJo Kennedy and Marty Meehan—they learned that if you’re a Massachusetts congressman, it doesn’t matter if you’re “up or out,” as long as you can avoid wall-mounting.
Consider the Payroll Patriots who will now apparently avoid Moulton. Blow-in drifters like Katherine Clark and Ayana Presley. (Whatever happened to the domestic hacks – why do we need to import the likes of Fake Indian, Deval Patrick and Michelle Wu?)
There used to be local congressmen who knew at least some people who actually worked for a living, even though they themselves couldn’t remember that they had a real job.
That category would include Reps. Steve Lynch and Bill Keating. They came in battling the Bulgars, who were once in some circles a restart.
But now both are awake. They are haunted by a ghost. What Jacob Marley’s shadow was to Ebenezer Scrooge, Mike Capuano is to Lynch and Keating – a reminder of what can happen to them if they don’t toe the line.
As a self-admitted hack, Capuano hasn’t stepped out of line, not once, during his more than 20 years of absence in Congress, but ultimately that wasn’t enough. He was still killed by Ayana Pressley in 2018. It’s going on a lot in Democrat circles – Joe Crowley in Queens, Eliot Engel in the Bronx. Even Chuck Schumer is listening to AOC’s footsteps.
Poor Lynch and Keating – and you can throw the wretched Richie Neal in that category, too. They are white male heterosexual ethnic Catholics who had the penance to be born and raised here.
In modern Massachusetts Democrat circles, that means they carry the mark of apostasy—the mark of the beast.
None of them would have dared to complete Moulton’s journey. They are life givers. They are in third place thinking about their pension. (Keating is already receiving a state pension of $114,449 since 2011.)
However, Moulton is still young enough to dream. He is only 42 years old. Maybe he’ll have an office in London someday… actually.
Aside from actually calling out the Joker car that is the Biden administration, the best thing about Moulton’s visit to Kabul was that he betrayed his own class.
He’s a Harvard guy, a social register type. As the Washington Post reminded us last week, all of these trusted legacies in the Biden regime — Jake Sullivan, Taliban Tony Blinken, Ron Klein — went to the same elite colleges and have “immaculate résumés.”
They all got good grades. Who doesn’t belong in these Ivy League schools nowadays, especially if your grandpa’s trust fund gave $10 million to a new equity-diversity-climate change building?
Whenever something goes wrong—and from January 20, what doesn’t? – Card Carrying Media Cheerleaders – Jake Tapper, Chuck Todd, George Stephanopoulos et al. – Cover for your teammates.
Beltway Baghdad bobs to his fellow travelers to sit in his studio and alibi. They believe that whatever happens, Biden’s handsome guys can still get the best tables at any five-star restaurant on a Saturday night at Martha’s Vineyard — with one phone call.
And that’s all that matters in the end, isn’t it? At least if you have a spotless resume.
Seth Moulton invokes his privileged, protected class, which is eagerly demolishing America. For that, I’ll give him a pass. At least today.
