My all-time favorite political line of attack is taking place right now.
It’s not “You’re no Jack Kennedy” or “My opponent’s youth and inexperience.” It’s not “Willie Horton” or “Lyin’ Ted.”
Nope. My favorite political line of attack is Dana Rohrabacher’s repeated slams of Harley Rouda being a (gasp!) businessman.
Let’s think about this, please. First, the GOP is all about business. It’s always all about business. Hell, when they praise their Grand Leader, it routinely starts with Donald Trump’s (nonsense, fraud-packed) career as a businessman. So to rip Harley Rouda’s lifetime of business … eh, it’s odd.
Second, and even more important: What the hell has Dana Rohrabacher done? I mean that—what has he done. Before being elected to congress he was a speechwriter for Ronald Reagan. So, truly, I’d like to know, Dana: What do you bring to the table? What skills? What tricks? What knowledge outside of politics?
Furthermore, what the f—- have you accomplished in three decades of office holding? Where are the amazing bills? Where are the leadership bullet points? Where are the rousing speeches? Where are the MLK-esque moments of kindness? Of decency? Of empathy?
What have you done, while Harley Rouda has done business?
