The Democratic Party: The Party of Toughs

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

There's a tendency among Democratic candidates to threaten violence while on the campaign trail. Joe Biden is obviously the most he-man practitioner of the art, but I followed young Beto O’Rourke and before he pulled out of the race he showed potential as a pugilist. And what about Kamala Harris and Kirsten Gillibrand? They showed their own dexterity with the F word. Had they not backed out prematurely they might be shouting back-alley language by now. The tougher gals might even be taking a swing at that 80-plus-year chap out in Iowa. I am still waiting for Hillary. She is even tougher than Joe and she has broken more furniture and lamps, to say nothing of her dirty mouth.
