TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Any day now, Joe Biden will announce his pick for the actual Democratic nominee. That's the person who will run the government if Biden wins in November. We've been telling you about this process for weeks now. We've taken a closer look at three potential candidates, all of them are said to be on Joe Biden's short list for the job. They are Stacey Abrams, Karen Bass, and Kamala Harris. Now, in a normal year no mainstream candidate would consider any of these people. All of them would be disqualified without debate. Karen Bass is a lunatic Fidel Castro acolyte who praised Scientology and once belonged to an armed revolutionary group. She's out. Stacey Abrams is so delusional, she thinks she's the Governor of Georgia and, by the way, she's essentially unemployed. In one of her last regular jobs, she wrote bad porn novels. For real. Kamala Harris, meanwhile, is so transparently transactional that even Democratic primary voters who have a strong stomach, found her repulsive. Pretty much no one who knows Kamala Harris likes her. 

So overall, it's not a blue ribbon group. But according to Joe Biden, this isn't a normal year and the normal standards don't apply. For what could very well be the most important job on Earth, Biden has decided to hire exclusively on the basis of qualities that are both immutable and completely irrelevant. Race and gender. And that's it. But wait a second, you ask, isn't that insulting? Isn't it wrong? Isn't it probably illegal? Yes, it is all three of those things. But no one's pushing back against it so Biden is doing it.
