Caitlyn Jenner’s Terrible Politics and General Stupidity are Alienating Her Family

After winning the gold medal in the men’s decathlon at the 1976 Olympics, sportswriter Tony Kornheiser said of Caitlyn Jenner “He and wife, Chrystie, are so high up on the pedestal of American heroism, it would take a crane to get them down.” That crane has come in the form of Jenner’s own terrible ideas.

Jenner is running for Governor of California in that state’s wild recall election rules. Basically, there’s going to be a recall election election in California as enough voters have signed a petition to get it on the ballot. The way this process works is that voters will vote yes or no on if Governor Gavin Newsom should be recalled and also vote on who should be Governor if he is recalled. If the yes vote fails to get more than 50% of the vote, Newsom will remain Governor. If yes does get a majority, Newsom will be replaced as Governor by whoever gets the most votes. Newsom is not permitted to be on the second ballot because the threshold for winning is potentially much lower as hundreds of people will likely end up on that ballot.

Jenner’s campaign is going about as well as you’d expect the campaign of an athlete and reality TV star’s campaign for Governor of California in an off-year election to go.

Buckle up, buckaroo.

The opening salvo of her campaign has been typical Republican claptrap about Democrats being soft on crime straight out of the Ronald Reagan playbook from the last time people actually gave a s**t about Jenner. It ended with her getting owned by Congressman Ted Lieu.

This didn’t sit well with Jenner’s former daughter-in-law Kim Kardashian, who has devoted herself to improving our penal system and reducing the insane amount of incarceration in the US.

TMZ reports that Kim was “disappointed” and “disturbed” by Jenner’s comments, and that Kim supports Gavin Newsom and won’t endorse or vote for Jenner in the election.

Jenner actually could win this election. If the recall is successful, all Jenner would have to do would be get the most votes in the second question. With hundreds of people running, the threshold she needs to clear could be as low as 30% if just two other candidates have serious campaigns. Arnold Schwarzenegger became Governor through this exact process, though he received about 48% of the vote at the time.

CJ is the smartest of hte bunch, so let that sink in for a minute. And they like to pretend they are liberal, but they hate paying taxes just like every other rich person does, and support many Republican causes. As they should. Neither party has the market cornered on good policy.

And if it came down to Jenner or American Psycho Gavin Newsom, It’s Jenner all the wy.
