Now that Beto has been exposed as the buffoonish imbecile that he always has been, the media have scrambled to find a new standard-bearer for Democrats and have settled on Pete Buttigieg, the thirty-something gay mayor of mid-sized South Bend, Indiana – home of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
Mayor Pete has become that new shiny thing that unlike caustic loudmouths Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and full-blown communist Bernie Sanders is like an adorable little pet – kinda like a gerbil.
Buttigieg has been the subject of multiple glowing pieces over the last several weeks even though he has little political experience at anything other than overseeing the filling of potholes and the hip midwestern millennial with the cut hubby that liberal media types are swooning over, he is now spewing the party line as a party that would gut the Constitution if that is what it took to regain the presidency.
Over the weekend, the longest of longshots has taken up the rallying cry to disenfranchise tens of millions of Americans – including those in his home state of Indiana – by eliminating the Electoral College and allowing the coastal elitist snobs to steal the democratic process away from ordinary citizens.

Buttigieg first called for eliminating the Electoral College in January, saying it has damaged democracy in the U.S.
“We’ve got to repair our democracy. The Electoral College needs to go, because it’s made our society less and less democratic,” Buttigieg said at the time, during an appearance on “CBS This Morning.”
Several other 2020 Democratic hopefuls have suggested it’s time to eliminate the Electoral College, with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) coming out strongly for the proposal and former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke and Sen. Kamala Harris (C-Calif.) indicating openness to the idea.
The mayor’s calls to move to a popular vote come as more than a dozen Democratic states have banded together in an effort to bypass the Electoral College by awarding their electoral votes to the presidential candidate who wins the popular vote.
Has anyone else noticed that the Electoral College’s legitimacy wasn’t attacked BEFORE Hillary lost the last election despite a 4 + million advantage in California?
One more example of the dangerous totalitarianism that has now consumed the Democratic party.
Efforts to nullify the Electoral College will intensify and this issue is headed to the Supreme Court which makes it all the more important to support Trump who will appoint pro-Constitution judges to the bench instead of fire-breathing extremists whose ideologies are in line with the cadaver RBG.
