Goodbye, Little Gay Pete

To absolutely no one's surprise, Little Gay Pete didn't make it to Super Tuesday.
Three people with knowledge of Buttigieg’s decision told The Associated Press he began informing campaign staff on Sunday. They were not authorized to speak publicly and requested anonymity. His campaign said Buttigieg will speak Sunday night in South Bend, Indiana.
I expect Warren is only sticking around in the hopes of a vice-presidential nomination. It's really down to Biden vs Sanders now; no one is going to support Bloomberg no matter how much Mini-Mike spends.

Gay Pete didn't want to be humiliated by the southern states on Super Tuesday. Blacks will vote for a homosexual, but he has to be mostly closeted, (Obama, Booker). They can be 99% sure he's gay, but not 100%. Pete with his "husband" was too in-your-face for black men to vote for.

Waiting or Big Mike to get tired of dressing like a woman all the time.

Blogger Hammerli 280 March 01, 2020 7:15 PM  

I'm a bit surprised he didn't stick it out until midweek. Get a few more chips for a Cabinet position.

I'm hoping it IS Biden vs Sanders...Bloomberg's mountain of money worries me. Crooked Creepy Joe and Bernie the Commie? Trump will crush them like an empty beer can by the end of September, then spend October providing fire support to down-ticket races.

Poor Mini-Mike, there isn't room for a second NYC billionaire in the race. Especially one who insults the productive classes.

I guess the CIA needed him for another mission.

Blogger rikjames.313 March 01, 2020 7:56 PM  

I am not a political genus, but I am surprised Pete expected Blacks to vote for a gay man.

During the Bush/Kerry election it came out the NAACP was issuing poll watcher credentials to Black pastors who them were inspecting their members ballots before they were fed into the machines. However, talking with Black lawyers casually about politics, they don't like Trump even with the First Step Act and new jobs for Blacks, but they really don't like Jews and Gays.

Anyway, not sure why Pete thought he would get their votes with Biden still in the race.

Blogger Stilicho March 01, 2020 8:04 PM  

I expect Biden is already trying to convince mini mike to take the VP slot on his ticket so tjey can team up against Sanders.

Poor Bernie, he's so close he can almost hear the screams from the gulags he wants to build. Mini mike thinks he's a fool to want to build gulags when the entire country can be turned into a massive gulag. Biden just wants a lollipop.

Blogger TheMaleRei March 01, 2020 8:16 PM  

What's next for Pete, I wonder.
Governor of Indiana?
Then another fruitless attempt at the Democrat nomination in another four or eight years?

Or perhaps a job at Disney. I'm sure he'd fit right in.

The more Mini Mike spends on the campaign the less he has for gun control.

Blogger Colonel Blimp March 01, 2020 8:32 PM  

Yep so an 80 year old idiot and a communist. How is this even a real party unless we accept this country is half moron.

However, Sanders is an easy Trump win. Biden is tricky. The election has nothing to do with anything outside of the rust belt and florida now. With Sanders the middle age Ohioans will simply say well country isnt burning an socialism is bad. With Biden hes just a different white guy who isnt this icky Trump fellow. Sanders also gets nothing from Florida as the frugalists already vote 90 percent dem anyway.

I thought for sure it was going to be Biden as he is their only chance but they i laughed at the dems actualky doing a commie or a gay man named bootygig...but it is where it is.

Warren larped as a woke socialist. She's staying in the race so as to prohibit Bernie from reaching a majority of delegates. She's a tool of the DNC.

Blogger boogeyman March 01, 2020 9:41 PM  

Perhaps Mini-Mike will stay in until the convention, hoping no one gets it on the first ballot. If that happens, he might be able to swoop in and buy up the super delegates.

I really want to see that happen. Milwaukee will burn, the country will watch it happen, Bernie Bros will either stay home or go 3rd party, Trump will beat Mike like a rented mule, and progressive/socialist left will spend the next 4 years yelling about how the party should have gone off the cliff with them. The problems the Democrats have will go unresolved for another election cycle, leaving room for Don Jr. come 2024

Blogger Akulkis March 01, 2020 9:57 PM  

Good riddance.

Peter Butt-gag & Chasin' Butt-gag.

Sound like names you would make up if you were writing gay porn. I mean, if he had been nominated, would we have also been introduced to his brother, Pounded, and his cousin Luce and his other cousin Sorel, both from his mom's side of the family, the Boowells.

The Establishment just told Buttigieg to exit the race. And he did so without the slightest hesitation.

Blogger jarheadljh March 01, 2020 11:02 PM  

Were it not for stop&frisk, MiniMike would have had a chance at the nomination. What makes it even funnier is that stop&frisk actually worked, and it worked specifically because the cops really were racially profiling. But nobody likes being called out on their own bullshit, so blacks will punish MiniMike for calling out theirs.

@doktor
Why do you think he has limited funds?

Blogger Azimus March 01, 2020 11:26 PM  

Biden called, and said this little adventure in pc totem voting was fun but it's got to end because he needs mayor Pete's votes to get delegates to beat Sanders. I don't know if you can wait till after super Tuesday to do that? Not sure if delegates are bound to their candidate only if the candidate is still active at the convention?

But in the end both these men are falling apart and won't live to see the end of the first term. It's obviously a symbolic candidacy and they will give it to the one that positions the Democrats best for 2024 - are we the old democrats or are we socialists? Which is very likely Biden.

Blogger James Dixon March 01, 2020 11:49 PM

Biden's obvious VP pick is Warren.

Mayor Pete was simply greasing the skids for future openly homosexual candidates. Colorado Gov. Jared Polis comes to mind.

Blogger allyn71 March 02, 2020 1:00 AM  

I suspect Warren is getting the cash to stay in as an attempt to try and pull off votes from Bernie. She is the 2nd most progressive candidate and any votes she gets likely come at Bernie's expense.

Blogger Paul M March 02, 2020 1:51 AM  

Under no circumstances will a person with the name "Buttkeg" become president. The party faithful would vote for him, but no-one else.

Blogger Stilicho March 02, 2020 7:58 AM  

"Biden's obvious VP pick is Warren"

Perhaps to Biden, but even mini mike channeling his overbearing jewish mother is more palatable to voters than Warren's shrewish mother-in-law endlessly reminding voters why they aren't good enough for her.

Either way, the general election will provide the best comedy since the Pythons broke up. The primaries are already up there with early SNL.

Blogger Stilicho March 02, 2020 8:06 AM  

Mini mike's opponents need to start putting up signs for him like the ones you see at every off ramp and intersection proclaiming "I buy houses. Quick cash!". Naturally, mini mike's signs will read " I buy elections. Quick cash!".

Blogger Katechon March 02, 2020 8:16 AM  

The intelligent socialists I'm reading are saying that Buttigieg's voters will likely go to Warren and Biden, thus hurting Bernie.
In December, they were writing that they wanted Mayor Pete to remain in the race as long as possible. To split the centrist (crypto neoliberal) vote.

Well, we do have this list of Mini-Mike endorsers.

Some super delegates here -- those are the ones that REALLY count.

The Sodomist dropping out actually makes it better for Mini-Mike, as those voters will be split between him and Dementia Joe.

We'll know a lot more Wednesday morning.

C'mon, Vox! We WANT a crazy brokered convention with rioting Bernie Bros and Super Delegates running for their lives after putting Mini-Mike at the top of the ticket!!

53. Maybe that was the point. They wanted to test the waters. And they didn't want anyone to miss he was gay. But some voters did miss it! I saw one voter in Iowa that was shocked when she found out and wanted to change her vote. This was a good year to do it, since no one wass likely to beat Trump anyway.

In my new job I'm traveling through ALL of the neighborhoods rich and poor. I have seen not ONE sticker or poster for Petey. Plenty for Warren and Bernie, one or two for Biden and TONS of discarded campaign mailers for Bloomberg...but NOTHING for Pete...even in the gay capitol of the US.

I have a coder friend I did a lot of work with on the mainland says that Covid has provided a beautiful cover for entire families of anti-communists and low social credit folks to get 'disappeared' into quarantine camps.

If it is working well, expect the next 'huge outbreak' in Hong Kong.

"what benefit does that person or group derive"

Not saying hoax or not hoax. But you're asking a logical question, in relation to the Left. People who think trannie-pedo story time and walking around with v-jay-jay hats are both good ideas. The pit has no bottom, and there is no perversion too off to revel in.

An answer would be if the hoax were to present fearporn, and then show that the results ended up being not much more deadly than the usual flu mortality, it would let China cut supplies temporarily (out of "concern"), cause shortages, and then resume shipping when the paranoia died down. Then if Trump tries to talk about more/keeping tariffs, the globalists can retort that he's just trying to kill the economy which just underwent such historic trauma from xenophobia. Or it's not hoax, it's bad, and they say he has not done enough to keep US safe. One infected gets shot, and it's time to take away the guns. Re-implement Obamacare on steroids, whatever. More government takeover, whatever. They're liars, they don't care, and their voters are stupid.

Hoax/not hoax, for our side, is important for taking steps to care for those important to us in our lives. Everything else, at the higher levels, is the ongoing war of politics. The ride never ends.

of course not, but Akulkis asked who might be benefitting.

If the disease makes a sudden appearance in Hong Kong, however, 'carefully constructed and controlled disaster' suddenly starts sounding a lot more likely. Sort of like 9/11 was perfectly timed and constructed in order to strip away the rights and expectations of Americans who had become entirely too complacent about their own privacy, safety, and future. Enter Homeland Security, the TSA, and a vast expansion of Bush's deep state.


Is it also not curious that every election, every two years, we seem to get a new outbreak of some pandemic?

It used to be you could only get it when a tv or radio station made the mistake of giving one of his speeches or Q&As live coverage. Now there's too many digital pocket video camera with built-in internet and telephone capabilities to cover it up any more
