 Is Andrew Yang Facist-Adjacent, or Fascist-Adjacent-Adjacent?

That seems to be the point of this rather silly article at Politico.

Yang told Dave Rubin — whose podcast The Rubin Report has interviewed white nationalists, white supremacists, conspiracy theorists, anti-Islamic activists and anti-feminist media personalities — that he “came of age during the first Clinton term” and considered himself a Democrat.


Yang also made appearances on The Ben Shapiro Show, The Joe Rogan Experience, and Tucker Carlson Tonight to promote his candidacy. By then these shows had built a reputation as highly critical of progressive policies and “woke” culture — a viewpoint that had built them a collective, nationwide audience of millions.

 At a guess, Yang probably also appeared on Rachel Maddow and El Chapo Trap House as well.  An unknown candidate like him has to find a way to get his message out somehow.  

This used to be called "guilt by association", but of course here it's not guilt by associating with someone objectionable, but by being interviewed by someone who once interviewed someone objectionable.  Mike Wallace interviewed a lot of bad people on 60 Minutes, does that mean we can't associate with Mike Wallace? Well, yeah, he's dead, but when he was alive?

They go on to point out some of the non-progressive things he said on those shows. This part made me chuckle a bit:

As he and Rubin discussed automation, Yang said, "If you take these people who are working in fast-food restaurants — and these jobs get automated away — and in my mind they should be automated away. Trying to preserve these jobs is not where we should be going."

I'm sure he meant to say that they will be automated away, not that they should be. That's a business decision with quite a few variables and of course saying those jobs should go comes off heartless which is why we get this silly back-pedal:

He told POLITICO that he would only support automating those positions if the affected workers had better job alternatives.

If the affected workers had better job alternatives, they'd presumably be working at them, right?

 The Awesomeness that is Joe Biden

Is it too early to suggest that he be added to Mount Rushmore?  That he replace Washington, Jefferson and Lincoln on our currency?  That we update the Pledge of Allegiance to include "One nation, under Joe Biden...?"

I get that to the media, Trump lowered the bar so much that almost anybody would be acceptable and that's the platform Biden ran on--the acceptable candidate.  But since the election a lot of pundits and headline writers seem to have lost all grip on reality and are acting like love-struck teenagers, going on and on about what a great human being he is.  Some embarrassing examples:

Biden Chooses Prosperity over Vengeance

Distinguished Pol of the Week: No progress was possible without Biden  Granted, that's Jennifer Rubin, so no particular surprise coming from the WaPo's well-trained "conservative."

7 Takeaways fom Biden's Covid Speech Doesn't sound that bad until you start reading it:

The return of empathy: Biden made a single gesture in the speech that demonstrated the empathy he operates with vis a vis the lives lost to this pandemic. He pulled a card out of his jacket pocket -- which he said he keeps with him wherever he goes -- and read off the exact, up-to-date number of Americans who have died from the coronavirus. (That number is more than 527,000.) Yes, of course, Biden did that for dramatic effect. But it worked. And it drove home the idea that this is a leader who keeps those who have died from the pandemic close to his heart -- literally. It also provided a not-so-subtle contrast with Trump's overt politicization of the virus and those who succumbed to it.

Joe Biden is a Transformational President 

Biden, Champion of the Middle Class, Comes to Aid the Poor

SNL, comedians are struggling to parody Biden

Yeah, I mean who could parody Biden and his story about the near battle with Corn Pop, and the Black kids who marveled at the blond hair on his legs?

Cited for Breaking the Christmas in Cambodia story (at Kerry Haters):

Hugh Hewitt: KerryHaters was on this story a long time ago. How could the elite media not have asked these questions before now?

Ankle-Biting Pundits: Our friends Pat and Kitty at Kerry Haters deserve the blog equivalent of a Pulitzer for their coverage of Kerry's intricate web of lies regarding Vietnam.
