Among those who were reduced to slobbering goo over Kamala Harris becoming the first Black woman to be declared — some would suggest prematurely — vice-president-elect of the United States on Saturday was the former interim chair of the Democratic National Committee and current Fox News contributor, Donna Brazile.
It was a sight to behold, tears streaming down Brazile’s face as she struggled to get the words out during a segment with hosts Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum. “As a woman of color, as a Democrat, your thoughts on this day?” Baier asked Brazile, who took a few seconds to compose herself.
“To get votin’ rights… to be those who just waited and waited for our turn… it’s been a long time coming. I thought about my mom and my grandmother this morning; they didn’t have the right to vote. But I did. I spent all my life believing that the right to vote was the key to our future.
“And because of the American people […] those who did not see color, to those who believed it was about competence and just giving everyone a seat at the table’ this is not about asking anyone to leave the room. Just scoot over and let women also share in the leadership of this country. I’m so grateful that this moment has come.”
Brazile also talked how Biden is going to “unify” and “bring the American people together.”
“I’m deeply happy, gratified, rejoicing, but I’m also well aware that this country, we still have huge divisions. I think. If there is a mandate (Democrats’ current favorite buzzword) out of any of this, it’s a mandate to unify our country, to bring the American people together.” (Never mind that Brazile spent four years trashing Trump.)
So what role does Brazile see for herself in helping to heal the Great Divide?
“I’m going to be that person inside the Democratic Party that says there are friends on the other side that cares about this country like us,” she said, adding that she was going to write an “open letter” to Trump supporters.
“I hear you, I hear you. I’ve been part of the Fox family. I hear you, I understand many of your worries and concerns. You are not going to be left out of this. If we don’t hear them, they’re going to spank us and kick us out in two or four years.”
CNN contributor Van Jones also got all weepy over Harris’s improbable ascent to vice-president-elect of the United States.
Today is a good day.
It’s easier to be a parent this morning.
Being a good person MATTERS.
This is a big deal.
It’s easy to do it the cheap way and get away with stuff — but it comes back around.

This whole thing is almost surrealistic. The very people who just a week ago were like, “Trump and his supporters are nothing more than a bunch of xenophobic racists!” now want to buy us a Coke and teach us to sing in perfect harmony. The people who spent four years not accepting the results of an election now want us to roll over and accept the results of this election, as they gleefully join hands with us and sing Kumbaya. Give us a minute, Democrats; you did all you could to try to destroy Donald Trump from the nanosecond he was declared the winner of the 2016 election.
“Reesus Patriot” summed it up, perfectly.
Watching @FoxNews, Donna Brazile with tears of Joy talking about @KamalaHarris with host talking about ending the division in this country. My brain is short circuiting. These people helped destroy America and suddenly doing the right thing? Whatever

Things might not be as peachy for Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and the Democrats as Donna Brazile, Van Jones, and others seem to believe. In an earlier article titled BLM Drops by Biden White House Celebration With a Message: ‘You Are All a Bunch of F**king Fools!’, I reported on a “visit” Black Lives Matter activists paid to a Saturday night celebration by Biden supporters at the Black Lives Matter Plaza in Washington, D.C.
Let the games begin.
