Miss Warren And Miss Harris, If You're Nasty!
Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren just keep making us love them more and more, what with being terrible mean nasty women, the way all good Americans should be. Yr Wonkette is ready for a Warren/Harris or Harris/Warren ticket RIGHT GODDAMN NOW, please and thank you!
Oh, we suppose you want to know what they did, huh? Well, fine, though really if you all just paid closer attention we wouldn't have to spell it out for you. But then we wouldn't be paid to write political fart noises, either, so you just keep not having already heard stuff, OK?
For starters, Kamala Harris had this perfect reply to Daily Mail reporter Emily Goodin, when Goodin asked whether Harris was tired of being talked about as a great VP choice:
Watch @KamalaHarris when she's asked about Joe Biden and 2020 running mate speculation...🔥🔥🔥 https://t.co/TSa0r154VZ— Amee Vanderpool (@Amee Vanderpool)1557943725.0
If people want to speculate about running mates, I encourage that, because I think that Joe Biden would be a great running mate. As vice president he's proven that he knows how to do the job, and there are certainly a lot of other candidates that would make, for me, a very viable and interesting vice president.
We completely agree! Joe Biden should just be America's permanent vice president, and anyone who has a problem with that is full of MALARKEY! Also, this is a good time to remind you all of the finest thing Bob Dole ever said. Back in 1976, when he was running as Gerald Ford's veep nominee, Dole was asked why he wanted to be vice president: "It's indoor work, no heavy lifting."
And then there was Elizabeth Warren, in a beautiful dressing-down today of Comptroller of the Currency Joseph Otting, who is in part responsible for regulating super-fraudy megabank Wells Fargo. Warren is no fan of Wells Fargo, what with all the fraud against its customers. (Hey, let's create unwanted accounts to collect more fees!) Warren wants the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) to make public the results of its review of Wells Fargo's next CEO, because really, that's a thing people should know!
Otting got snippy, said he didn't have to if he doesn't want to, and insisted that "no one has been more tougher [sic] on Wells Fargo than myself." (Don't believe ABC News's cleaned up quote.) Warren was not impressed:
"No one has been tougher on Wells Fargo than myself," Treasury official Joseph Otting says during testimony. Sen.… https://t.co/7RjEzSXfM4— ABC News Politics (@ABC News Politics)1557940627.0
In conclusion we would like Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren to both be president, please. Also you should buy some of our fine Wonkette merch! We have some fresh new bumper stickers that will strike fear in the hearts of bank CEOS and Joe Biden, which is sort of the same thing! (We kid, Joe. ON THE SQUARE.)
Click the clickies! Buy the stickies! Yr Wonkette is stuck on you, so you should buy our stuff and stick it on any flat surface it's legal for you to do so!
Also it is your open thread now.
