“THE HOBGOBLIN OF LITTLE MINDS”

(Aug. 5, 2020) — Faithful P&E readers, following the announcement that Slow Joe Biden (or his marionette-master/mistress) had selected Kamala Devi Harris as his running mate, some initial dust-ups have emerged regarding how she prefers that her name be audibly pronounced.

Tucker Carlson found out the hard way, when he pronounced her given name other than in the manner she prefers.  The DNC, CNN, leftist gestapo speech police and the WaPo exploded with criticism, suggesting that the mispronunciation of her preferred audible intonation of “Kamala” – i.e., “comma-luh” – was disrespectful and even racist.

Seriously?

Conveniently, of course, the same speech gestapo sentries ignored the fact that, the very day following the announcement of her selection to share the high honor of crashing and burning on the electoral tarmac with Slow Joe in November, Biden introduced her as (phonetically-speaking): “camel-uh Harris”  Wow.

As Emerson noted: “Foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds” and one would need to labor long and hard to discover smaller minds than those on the left…, especially in Congress or at CNN and the WaPo.

Accordingly, and as a public service announcement, your faithful servant suggests that hereafter, all who dare to speak the given name of the vice-presidential candidate on the Harris-Biden tic …., oh…, sorry…, my bad…, the Biden-Harris ticket pronounce her given name thusly: “comma-luh.”

Understanding that Slow Joe may be having some growing difficulties remembering things – like what office he is running for and what the Declaration of Independence says  – it is suggested that the easiest way for him to remember that his running mate’s first name is pronounced “comma-luh” is to associate it with the second grader’s ditty “The Comma Song.

You’re welcome.

Oh…, yeah…, and vote very carefully in November.

    Funny, I always pronounce Ineligible Harris’s first name “Kommie-luh.” Make no mistake, she is the real head of the dem ticket, not that senile old zombie sock-puppet from the great state of confusion.

    If “Kamala Harris” is difficult to pronounce, “Senator Harris” is always appropriate.
