Tim Ryan has been a House of Representatives member from Ohio before now running for senate. He is taking on J.D. Vance for that old Rob Portman seat and is attempting to make himself look as moderate as possible to bleed away votes from the MAGA Republicans. But outside his liberal incubator, as he has been trying to appeal to voters across the state, his efforts have increasingly looked foolish and even desperate. And after a barrage of commercials trying hard to look better than J.D. Vance, Tim Ryan has instead made himself look like the popular character from the animated series South Park, the little handicapped kid Timmy. The funny thing about Timmy from South Park is that he is so audaciously over the top because he’s too handicapped to know where the limit is. And people let him be because they figure he’s handicapped, and it would be politically incorrect to say anything to him. So they just let him go, which is the root of all the comedy. And that is the same thing for the Tim Ryan campaign; someone should have told him that he’s being ridiculous. But like the handicapped kid from South Park of the same name, Timmy, who wants to run for the Ohio senate seat based on the handicap of his own progressive politics, is making a fool of himself, but nobody will tell him because they fear it might be politically incorrect. Not even the media will do it; who is saying that the race is essentially tied and that J.D. Vance is fighting for his life with this one? Based on watching the many Tim Ryan campaign ads, I don’t think J.D. Vance has anything to worry about.
The polling likely has more to do with the need of the media to keep the drama of the horse race in politics interesting rather than being reflective of any actual voters. It’s a common problem with polling, liberals pick up the phone, and Republicans, especially MAGA Republicans, don’t answer unless their smartphone tells them who is calling. Whoever is running the poll takes down the samplings of whoever picks up the phone, and that’s how the poll results are created. Meanwhile, there are a lot of unrepresented voters out there that nobody knows about on election day who show up and vote quietly, keeping their intentions to themselves. By then, it doesn’t matter to the media sources because they have sold a close race to the public for as long in the election cycle as they could have. And that means good ratings because people watch their programming keeping ad revenue up during the election cycle. When they are surprised with the election results, and someone like J.D. Vance turns out with a six to eight-point victory, they get some additional media interest in talking about the surprise for a few weeks after the election so that ad investment doesn’t just bleed off. That is the name of the game and clearly what is going on in Ohio with the Senate race. Tim Ryan is a big-time liberal, to the left of Karl Marx in a lot of measures. And Ohio voters aren’t that far left.
That reality has pushed Tim Ryan to come across as overly enthusiastic about his chances leaving rational minds to giggle to themselves over the matter. But Timmy is like that handicapped kid from South Park. Nobody wants to do the politically incorrect thing and tell him what a fool he is making of himself. Nobody wants to tell him how ridiculous he sounds. And how stupid it is that they think enough people will forget how liberal he has been in Congress and that he is suddenly like a MAGA Republican on trade policy. Or that he’s some kind of tough guy. He can throw footballs at televisions, including images of J.D. Vance himself, and knock them down with a coy smirk on his face as if that subtle message was going to convey strength instead of a reminder of just how hostile the modern political left is. Then when you add up the efforts of Tim Ryan and compare them to the other losers running in this election as well, such as Fetterman in Pennsylvania, we are getting a collection of some of the most handicapped people ever to run in an American election, who have made their entire platform based on feeling sorry for them. It’s one thing to feel sorry for them and their intellectual handicaps in life. It’s quite another to let them run our lives, which is their proposal. They really think that voters are as handicapped as they are, and they are functioning along with that assumption, which has a comedic element to it.
I would say that pressure from the MAGA Republicans has caused this handicap among progressives to become so obvious. Tim Ryan is trying so hard to overcome it that his efforts end up looking distinctly phony. And they are all desperate; in most campaign years, no political party would attempt to put up a guy like Fetterman with his hoody and tattoos, not to mention his lack of speech in the wake of his recent stroke. Add the Georgia race to the mix along with others, and the Democrat Party under the old fool Joe Biden looks like a demolition derby of handicapped underachievers from misfit island, and that’s the best that they can do. Democrats have no platform, they have lost their victimization positions, and their track record is abysmal. The first priority for all voters is economic well-being; on Biden’s watch, he has wrecked the economy. It took a few months into his first term after the controversy of a stolen election to destroy the economy, but we are now going into many consecutive quarters of negative growth and are headed for a depression. People feel it even if the media isn’t wanting to talk about it, to prop up the horse race to make things look closer than they really are. But because of the media involvement in making things look better than they really are, we now have all these handicapped politicians like Timmy Ryan who really think they have a chance to win. I would remind voters that cheating is still part of the strategy of all Democrats, and there will be cheating in this election, especially in places like Philadelphia, where there will likely be more voters voting for Fetterman than there are actual, registered voters. Democrats are going all in on this election because they know they are a party that is being completely rejected by the American public, especially after that stolen election in 2020 and their anger at the Biden administration destroying their 401K plans. Republicans still can’t take anything for granted. They have to go and actually vote, especially on election day itself. But understanding all that, Timmy Ryan in Ohio doesn’t have a chance, and it’s almost cruel to let him continue to make a fool of himself for the purpose of ad ratings on cable news. Intellectually he doesn’t measure up to J.D. Vance, the Trump-endorsed candidate in the Ohio Senate race and the only person who can do anything to Make America Great Again. Tim Ryan, well, he’s just always going to be “Timmy.”
