(The Second in a series of nominees, the winner will be announced in a December 27th column.)

Controversy has already struck this competition just after the first nominee was announced. That day, our first nominee – Larry Czonka, er, Jennifer Solot – resigned from her post on the Upper Moreland School Board over her racist comments. Once nominated, however, a nominee remains nominated with future developments factoring in the final vote. Stupidity, once demonstrated, remains stupid forever.

That being said, our second nominee is historic! Super-historic, really. She might the most historic person ever, according to every glowing profile the slobbering media has done of her. And while our first nominee was chosen because of one event so profoundly stupid it deserved recognition on its own, our second nominee deserves recognition for being profoundly stupid over the course of the year…which is amazing considering she’s only been on the job since mid-May. I’m speaking, of course, of White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.

“Historic” used to be a word reserved for events in history, generally things that mattered, now it’s a resume enhancer for otherwise untalented Democrats. They’ve done the same thing to the word “diverse,” which used to be many different whatevers (people, viewpoints, types of food, etc.), now it just means skin color – how often have you heard a person described as “diverse”? One person can’t be diverse, it’s just them, unless you’re only talking about their skin color with the same level of fervor and excitement the KKK used to bring to those types of discussions. 

Democrats were the KKK then, they’re the same now – the left has never changed their objective, only their tactics. They still seek to divide people by any means necessary. KJP’s “historic” “diversity” is just the latest tactic and something she embraces wholeheartedly.

KJP is black, gay and an immigrant. Congratulations to her on things over which she has zero power or input in deciding. To Democrats that is an accomplishment, to normal people it’s irrelevant. But when you have so little else to celebrate, “diversity” and “historic” it is! 

Most people have more self-respect than to allow themselves to be used this way, but then most people have more sense than to take a job, especially a public job, for which they are woefully unqualified for. KJP has no such issue.]

The “historic” mouthpiece for a historically bad President and administration really, really sucks at the job. Her predecessor, Jen Psaki (AKA Ginger Goebbels) was a lying fraud, but at least she could string together a coherent sentence without needing to read it word for word out of a binder given to her by her bosses. KJP not only doesn’t seem to have any idea what the Biden administration’s positions are on issues she’s asked about every single day, she seemingly has no desire to learn them.

To be an effective communicator for an administration you have to be trusted and in on the meetings where important things are discussed. That enables you to go and talk about what’s going on and what the administration believes without having to read it or sound like a robot in desperate need of a software upgrade.

KJP reads her answers word-for-word from the binder her bosses give to her every day, which makes her the equivalent of popcorn – flavorless delivery device for salt and butter. She’s irrelevant. Except for the fact that she’s “historic,” and she’s only “historic” because she’s “diverse.” I think my cats would have more self-respect than to be used that way, especially if they were as bad at the job as KJP is (though I suspect my cats could do it better).

To add insult to injury, whether she’s out there trying to walk back something stupid her boss said or just answer some basic question someone in the mailroom could easily answer, KJP reads it verbatim like a bad actress who hasn’t memorized her lines while everyone else is off-book. Worse, she wears an eyeshadow that is sparkly, usually gold, that highlights the fact that she’s looking down reading. She should consider having a make-up artist paint some eyeballs on her eyelids so she can somewhat hide the fact that she’s looking down reading. It wouldn’t help with the stilted, seemingly unfamiliar with the content way she delivers the lines she’s reading, but at least she’d run risk of looking like she’s engaged.

Karine Jean-Pierre is not only “historic” for her sexuality, place of birth and skin color in the job she holds, she’s also historic for being historically bad at it. She may well be the worst speaker ever from the White House press room podium. Stephanie Grisham, Scott McClellan and Anthony Scaramucci have all breathed a sigh of relief...
