Jenner files to run as Republican Governer of California.

OK...There is just so much to unpack in this one..It is dripping irony in so many directions. Now I get that Celebrity is a thing. And I dont care about her Gender, her politics or her fashion sense. But can anyone on any side explain to me how ANYTHING this person has actually done in life has qualified her to run a globally significant economy? Next stop Kardashianland..

I won’t say “never” again—Trump got elected. But if Caitlyn is running as a Republican she’ll be representing a constituency that by and large probably think something’s wrong with her. And as a former Trump supporter, even though she eventually snapped out of [b]that[/b] delusion, she still thinks like a card-carrying member of the GOP. And I don’t see that helping our state anymore than the Republican men who are trying to unseat the incumbent. They need to leave Gavin alone if they can’t help. Let him do his job.

Politics is nothing more than a popularity contest nowadays. It's not even about who can actually do the job anymore.

[@619287,Jwalker] OK.. As a Republican, what has she obstructed lately?
[@621893,whowasthatmaskedman] The Republicans as a whole are obstructionists. There are hundreds of Bill's McConnell never brought to the Senate after being passed in Congress. There ate Republicans like Jim Jordan who has never brought any legislation up to be voted on. He and a handful of Republicans in Congress/Senate do absolutely nothing for their State. They are there to obstruct anything the Democrats present. The rest of the Republicans don't make any decisions they all vote party line. This is the party Caitlyn wants to represent.

[@619287,Jwalker] Caitlyn, not Bruce.

Jenner has the same qualifications as the Previous President, maybe more, at least Jenner once won a gold medal. Running as a Republican makes sense, since it's been proven, Republicans will fall for any line, and they are very easy to fleece.
Not sure Jenner is as good a con as the previous Republican President though.

[@1088262,independentone] Don is the best Republican con man we've seen. He lies without a shred of decency, and his people eat it up. Jenner may have won a gold medal in the Olympics, but Trump just won a tiny silver plated bowl from his GOP Cult for his tiny hands.

Seriously, I doubt Republicans will be able to see through her as a transgender person. Her candidacy is dead on arrival.

[@339454,windinhishair] I suspect that myself. It did cross my mind that with the Kardashian video circus folding this may be her cry for attention. To establish a brand of her own. Call me cynical....

Politics is nothing but a joke anymore.

[@773073,Maleficent] That's exactly what I am saying.

[@37506,jjoe01] What about them?

I have to agree that I don't see anything she has done that qualifies her for the position. I wouldn't vote for her, regardless of her party, but because of her lack of qualifications.

I have to agree with you. I really don't understand what her qualifications are since it would have to be a huge job running a state like California.
