Felons for Hogs at the Trough

Post by Pyrrho » Sat Jan 13, 2018 7:43 pm

Chelsea Manning is running as a Democrat in Maryland.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/201 ... e-maryland
A federal election filing, made on Thursday, confirmed Manning’s intention to run in the November elections as a Democrat.

That would range her against Ben Cardin, the senior senator from Maryland who has served since 2007. The senior Democrat on the Senate foreign affairs committee, Cardin has emerged as a key party voice on investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

She's only 30, so she can't run for president in 2020. And a couple of terms in congress are a good way to prepare.

Chelsea for president (that one not that one) in 2024. :wink:

Manning moved to Maryland after raising over $175,000 in support through crowdfunding and has been an active Twitter user and writer.
Nice work if you can get it. Eminent qualifications for a Senator.

Correction. Senate not congress.

Senator without serving in the lower house a little bit first. Not unlike Hillary.

Wouldn't it be cool if the major controversy of the next presidency (assuming Trump reelected in 2020) is whether the first woman president is really a woman.

Then follow it up with a trans man president, so his detractors can say he's the first woman.

If we can get that all in before divine wrath or enthusiastic Muslims do us in, it'll be worth it. 8)

Remember Chuck Schumer saying he didn't want a "Twitter president"?

If he said that merely as a jibe against Trump, that's OK.

But if he really did mean it in general, tough shit.

Every president for the foreseeable future of any party will be a "Twitter president".

On a serious note, much as I deplore manning's treason in the cause of narcissism , if there has to be a Chelsea with a prominent political career.... Maybe it's better Manning than Clinton.

Manning's candidacy will be a great way to keep her notoriety fresh and the donations rolling in. Otherwise she will be forgotten, and the sooner that happens, the better.

@iAmTheWarax

I have angered Manning-twitter. Instead of responding to everyone, I'll say this—

She's a traitor and an opportunist. Chelsea Manning was a junior intelligence soldier on her first contract. A boot. Now she speaks at colleges as an "intelligence community expert." She's a fraud.

And that ain't all!

Looked more like a trailer for a dystopian zombie flick. "Up the Revolution," etc. About as "antifa" as you can get only without the red-and-black fist signs. Oh, wait, there it is, the smiley face in sunglasses has the "revolution fist."

I predict she'll end up back in jail for misappropriation of campaign donations.
