This morning, it is starting to feel like everything is backwards. I haven’t finished my first cup of coffee or started on breakfast, and I’ve read a post by Debra Heine over at American Greatness about the Biden White House launching an effort to make Kamala Harris more popular.
As I read her post, I was reminded of Alice’s interchange with the White Queen in Through the Looking Glass.
“I can’t believe that!” said Alice.
“Can’t you?” the Queen said in a pitying tone. “Try again: draw a long breath, and shut your eyes.”
Alice laughed. “There’s no use trying,” she said: “one can’t believe impossible things.”
“I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.“
It may be that the White Queen is a core Democrat voter.
Making Harris seem competent is less Alice and the Red Queen, and more Winston Smith and Comrade O’Brien.
