Listen: Senate, Florida, California discussed on Armstrong and Getty
"Word of the day is Pablo Pablo Dr Seuss elected governor in California. Well, he had nothing to do. All he is running. Right. There's nowhere for the last eight years as Lieutenant governor. Yes. So he's been free for a long long time. He was up by twenty points one by twenty points. So he came up with some cool rhymes? Agents of anger doing a surprise show this Thursday, it's going to be a really tiny club very small venue. You can get tickets. I suggest you check it out. Yeah. Here's the identity politics thing. I noticed last night, and I didn't even catch onto this too late. I'm watching the Florida governor's race closely. I've been watching it for you know, since it got setup weeks ago thought it was really interesting you've got a guy who's modeling himself after Trump. He says the same sorts of things he's he's brass brass brash crass he does all the same sort of Gambian similar give people nicknames has a super hot wife does the same things Trump does. And then you had a socialist running against him. And I thought wow will socialist win. But all the media was talking about will a black guy win. Right. So for the media was will the first black man be governor of Florida for me. I'm thinking, we'll the first socialist be governor of Florida. And should we be more concerned about the policies and the political party and all that sorta stuff then the color of the skin? I am but progressives tend to reduce people to their ethnicity. So at the end of the night is horrible this race. If he had wanted to bend. The we elected a black guy as opposed to we elected, a socialist. Well, boo you're half. Right. There were a couple of really interesting. I mean, everybody would be interested in their stories in their candidacy minorities running on the Republican side. They got no attention. They got a tiny tiny fraction of the attention of Beto O'Rourke or an Andrew gillum, just like the the only black secretary of state we've ever had his Condoleeza Rice, the only doesn't count and Colin Powell doesn't count gets no attention. So the the progressive part was assumed. And they went with the identity politics part? You can't get any air as the first black man running his Republican for the Senate in Ohio, for instance, a breath. I just think one of the biggest in the country having a socialist governor would be a big story a much bigger story than the fact that he's black. Skin pigmentation. Nope. Oh, and of course, not in racist twenty-first-century, America. Of course, the belief is saw these tweets floating around last night. He was supposed to win. The race of the governor's race in California defied the polls by quite a bit. How a -fornia I'm sorry in Florida. The governor's race in Florida defied the polls quite a bit. And so it's already floating around the internet that it was the Bradley effect, which has never actually happened. What is what does that? It's it's a term that has been used for decades. But if you go if you go back to my mind, honest, people have pointed out that it never act has actually happened. But it's used anytime there's a black person race. It's the idea that you'll tell your pollster I'm voting this way. But secretly, you would never vote for a black person. So the Bradley effect is the polls can be misleading when there's a black candidate. Because people don't want to seem racist to the bolster there's no proof that that's actually ever happened including going back to the Bradley race. And it just seems nonsensical to be anyway, who's lying to their pollster because they're worried about what they think polled at some doofus on the other end of crazy meet people don't want to admit to their pollster, they like Trump bird aren't gonna vote for the black guy, or or whatever, you know. It is possible that fifty percent of Floridians didn't want a socialist is the governor it is possible, right. You don't have to be a racist to not want to socialist. I lied to pollsters. But not because I I'm trying to steal my identity. No, no. I don't like what you're trying to do. I've done that before how many times you stop by an ice cream store a month. Twice a day sixty times. Whatever's going to throw off their numbers. Yeah. Yeah. So here's your favorite place to vacation Haiti. The middle of that erupting. Volcano hawaii. Unlike the heat, you have any other questions for me pollster you wanna keep going? So I don't know. I just don't know we can talk about the New York Times making a big deal of the fact that. Democrats Senate candidates got quite a number of votes. More than Republican Senate candidates nationwide. It's misleading has been pointed out by anybody looking at the numbers, but that is a popular Meam on social media right now. Right, right. Two thirds of all senators are not up for reelection two states have special election. So they have to Senate races. California's primary system that resulted in two Democrats on the ballot and no Republicans literally zero Republican votes. Right. So for a couple of years lefty commentators have been talking about this meaningless number rights. Tim Carney, Washington Examiner. It's an argument or argument that the GOP control of government is a legitimate. And that you gotta do away with the current system for. For government, right? Which would be so terrible terrible seeds of anger in the country. You think you're angry now wait until a tiny tiny geographical part of the country controls all of the politics of the country. So as the state of Jefferson thing is got steam, which it doesn't have much. But yeah, there will be talk of secession if you get rid of the electoral, college and. Two senators for every state which is being argued by people on the left, by the way, Democrats who are the ones constantly worried that Trump is going to not honor elections not honor the institutions in the country. Right. Get rid of the electoral college in the Senate are seeds of destruction opening for what was that band. Kevin instruments of anger seeds of destruction anger. Yeah. Man. Bring your black eyeliner, bring your ear plugs.."
