Democrats and their Hallelujah chorus in the liberal media are in full meltdown mode. On Monday morning, we noted James Carville warning that it would be the "end of days" if current frontrunner Bernie Sanders got the nomination. On Monday afternoon, even devoted Democrat Chuck Todd admitted that the Democrat field lacks a "star" and is "B-level."
A guest on Todd's MSNBC show this evening was University of New Hampshire Professor Dante Scala. As they discussed the possibility of mediocre turnout, Scala described the Dem contenders as "B-level," and Todd seconded that emotion.
DANTE SCALA: I think that the problem is that Democrats here in New Hampshire, when all is said and done, they're saying this looks like a B-level field of candidates, no one head and shoulders above the rest, the way that like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were in 2008. All, even the top tier, have severe problems with at least one faction of the party if not multiple problems.
CHUCK TODD: Dante just used the, you actually just used the perfect, B-level, Jason. And I say this, this is no offense to anybody. One of these people will feel like an 'A' person at some point. They just — I get why he says that. It feels like there’s no star.
JASON JOHNSON: There is no star!
Johnson tried to claim Democrats are enthusiastic, but spread that energy across the field of candidates and need someone else to choose, like they're picking cones at a Baskin-Robbins.
You have to smirk as Todd says to the candidates "No offense, but you all lack charisma." Democrats could always shoot back "No offense, but your charisma isn't exactly knocking Fox News out of first place."
Online, Todd and his political team uncorked a wilder, violent movie metaphor: "Indeed, the action over the last 72 hours here has resembled moderates acting like the characters at the end of Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs.”
