Today’s show takes a long look at the five hours of town halls hosted on CNN last night with 2020 presidential candidates Amy Klobuchar, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris and Pete Buttigieg.

The five candidates took questions from an audience of college students looking to the government to solve their problems, and not one of them said anything close to the fact that they should not be looking to anyone besides themselves to do that. Don’t miss today’s episode.

    Clown car. I sure didn’t like it when Democrats referred to our multiple candidates that way in 2016 or 2012 or 2008.

    I’d like to suggest that we retire that phrase, sespecially given the clownishness of Trump.

    Let me see if I follow your reasoning.

    Because they always do it to us, therefore we should never do it to them. 

    This is known as unilateral disarmament: we should pat ourselves on our backs for our purity and moral superiority, as we go down to defeat. 

    Gary, that you always prefer to lose pretty, than win ugly, is why you’re always heavily outnumbered on Ricochet. It’s poetic justice: your arguments in favor of defeat always go down to defeat.

    Every election, challengers refer to the “failed policies” of the current administration. That old saw is tiresome, as is “clown car.”

    It may be tiresome to people who follow politics, but it probably sounds spanking new to the average voter. Especially empty-headed younger voters, for whom everything is brand new and unprecedented.

    This time around, of course, Democrats have a hard time calling Trump’s policies “failed“ without beclowning themselves.

    Pocahontas, Beto, Red Bernie, Spartacus, Amy “Miss Congeniality“ Klobuchar, Joe “Foot-in-Mouth“ Biden, obscure Congressmen and small town mayors: yup, clown car.

    By contrast, the 2016 Republican candidates look like an All-Star team: mostly Senators or Governors, and two major CEOs.
