California Senator Kamala Harris announced her candidacy for President on Monday during an appearance on Good Morning America, with a remarkably bland statement of “let’s make the country better together and stuff.”

Stunning. As well well know from 2016, criticizing any political candidate from the left automatically means you are a Russian spy, but also criticizing any candidate from the right also means you’re a Russian bot? I’m not sure. Russian bots exist, the Internet Research Agency is a real thing, they will undoubtedly try to fuck with the 2020 election. But discounting any progressive critique as “doing Putin’s work” is insane.

Here’s example two:

This blog is over now. If you’ve seen another truly deranged Kamala Harris take, post it in the comments, or don’t, which would probably be better for everyone involved.
