Stop being goofy, Senator Warren

In writing a post, I start with a headline and an image. They are subject to change and usually do. But they set the tone. In writing about Elizabeth Warren, I was struck by the difficulty in getting a GIF that shows her as a serious grownup.

Campaigning requires one to be entertaining. It is all salesmanship. I look at her GIFs and wonder why they do not put her on some medication.

If we had a red flag law for politicians, she would still be teaching law at Harvard.

Her goofiness is unattractive.

Her face and head are in constant motion making her seem like a 2-year-old.

She may think of herself as spontaneous and energized, but she comes off as being unhinged.

Of course, her actions reflect her politics. Not much thought goes into paying reparations, eating $1.6 trillion in student debt, and expanding Medicare to cover everybody. Because if she did think these things through, she would realize how dumb they are.

A huge part of her problem is she has all the fashion sense of a warthog. She needs to dress for success. She wears the same black outfit with a sweater-jacket hanging over it every single day. Chairman Mao showed more variety.

 And she needs to learn makeup. She is pasty, as if they let her out only at night.

Like Hillary before her, Warren approaches being the first woman president as an entitlement. Golda Meir and Margaret Thatcher were serious players. They showed a competence that was better than their opponents. Their argument was not that they were entitled to lead their nations because they were women, but that they were the best person for the job.

And once elected, they proved they were.
