    Report: Kamala Harris Keeps Enemies List of Journalists Who Don't
    'Appreciate Her Life Experience'

    Binders full of racists

    Vice President Kamala Harris keeps a list of reporters and other
    political types who might be racist, according to a profile published in
    the Atlantic on Monday.

    "The vice president and her team tend to dismiss reporters. Trying to
    get her to take a few questions after events is treated as an act of
    impish aggression," writes Edward-Isaac Dovere. "And Harris herself
    tracks political players and reporters whom she thinks don't fully
    understand her or appreciate her life experience."

    That list presumably includes the people at Vogue magazine, who managed
    to enrage libs by putting Harris on the cover earlier this year. It
    remains unclear why the libs became enraged; Harris was wearing her
    signature Converse kicks and everything.

    According to Dovere's reporting, Harris judiciously monitors the words journalists use to describe her. "She particularly doesn't like the word cautious, and aides look out for synonyms too," he writes. "Careful,
    guarded, and hesitant don't go over well."

    Antonyms as well, apparently. During the 2020 campaign, journalists and
    other libs were sounding the alarm about the word "ambitious." This was especially true following reports that some aides to then-candidate Joe
    Biden thought Harris was too ambitious to be his running mate; Biden did
    "not want to be outshone." Rep. Karen Bass (D., Calif.) was reportedly considered because, unlike Harris, she had no interest in running for president in the future.

    On that subject, the Atlantic prole does not inspire condence in
    Harris's ability to realize her presidential ambition. Biden's death
    might be the only thing that could propel her to the White House, given
    her underwhelming political abilities. She already tried running for
    president in 2020, and her campaign flamed out before the Iowa caucus.

    Some aides have been "surprised at how much work there is to be done"
    when it comes to educating Harris on policy issues. Even journalists
    have grown tired of the VP's tendency to "retreat behind talking points
    and platitudes in public." Dovere writes that, at times, Harris "comes o
    as so uninteresting that television producers have started to wonder
    whether spending thousands of dollars to send people on trips with her
    is worthwhile, given how little usable material they get out of it."

    In many ways, Harris is merely a non-white version of Hillary Clinton.
    Both women are possessed by ruthless ambition, yet lack the necessary
    skills to succeed in politics at the national level. They are most
    comfortable when regurgitating talking points and platitudes.
    Objectively speaking, they share a knack for unsettling laughter and
    launched their political careers by dating powerful men.

    Harris's obsession with keeping track of the politicians and reporters
    who "don't fully understand her or appreciate her life experience" might
    seem strange, but it's nothing new. Hillary did the same thing but never
    got a chance to exact her revenge. Alas, neither will Harris, in all likelihood.
