Unlike what The New York Times’ Maggie Haberman would have us believe about Donald Trump, President-elect Joe Biden actually does have some political acumen. As such, that he would name someone as controversial as Neera Tanden to the OMB is curious.
Apparently, Republican Senators hate her guts.
Let me be clear that I don’t know anything and you should probably ignore me, but here’s what I think — she’s a lightening rod that’s meant to goose the African American vote in Georgia.
Here’s the logic — she’s at twofer. Not only does she let Republicans’ vent their bad faith arguments on one person who sums up what a bunch of misogynistic racists they are, but the controversy also helps get out the vote in Georgia.
So, if Democrats aren’t able to flip those two Republican Senate seats, then at least all the vitriol that Republicans might use to simply tell Biden to fuck off will be focused on one person — Neera Tanden.
But what the fuck do I know.
