Kampala Harris will kick the Orange Menace’s ass if he dares to challenge her. Now the ticket is complete. Nov.3rd. Is looking much better now! Vote Biden and Harris to bring intelligence back to the White House!— Tommy Chong (@tommychong) August 11, 2020
In an evening Tweetstorm of snark and snidery, that was hardly the best.

Maybe Susan Rice was a bit too ... I don't know, swampy?
Netflix director (and possible VP pick?) Susan Rice exercised her stock options in the streamer this week, and subsequently sold all the shares, netting her a gain of about $300,000 https://t.co/I0wyWWDIwM— Alex Weprin (@alexweprin) August 6, 2020
NEWS: Disclosure docs show that one of Biden’s top candidates for VP made big investments in the fossil fuel industry. The revelations come as Biden has faced renewed questions about his climate policies. https://t.co/XcSHLmoOP2— David Sirota (@davidsirota) August 7, 2020
She'll probably make a fine secretary of state, in the Mike Pompeo tradition.
No matter who Biden's VP ends up, whether it's Kamala Harris, Susan Rice, or Stacey Abrams, our job as Democrats is to stay woefully uninformed and not pressure Dems to be better—so everyone please STFU. https://t.co/Uofilc74au— Nate's Liver - Commentary (@SilERabbit) August 11, 2020
Anyway ... most of the Donkeys are happy this morning.
Kamala was, after all, the easy choice. The safe choice. It seemed as if Biden wanted somebody else, but this piece suggests that it was pretty much hers all along. If you believe what Obama was tipping, anyway. (No mention of Klobuchar there, I note.)
Seriously, the KHive brings it, and Trump is somewhat lost for insult words. 'Nasty' and disrespectful' (#3 in this list) aren't gonna play like they did against Hillary four years ago, especially since he donated to Kamala's campaign for CA AG. Oops. I'm less sure about "Phony", as that happens to be progressives' primary complaint. Michael Goodwin at the NY Post is a conservative asshole, but his critique here is mostly spot on (replace "violent radicals leading riots and looting" in the last graf with "police and unidentified federal goons beating up peaceful protestors", for one example).
Let me close this out with two questions I look forward to hearing the answer to:
How will liberals justify Kamala Harris accepting donations from Donald Trump & Steve Mnuchin?— Kevin Thee Donkey 🌹 (@swallowit_) August 12, 2020
How does Joe Biden plan to solve the coming crisis in homelessness?— Prof Zenkus (@anthonyzenkus) August 11, 2020
A White House Update is forthcoming, with more about the other candidates in the presidential race, and less about the duopoly.
