The Democrat Party is obsessed with identity politics. When the Democrat primaries began, the tally sheets emerged to count the minorities (black, Asian, Hispanic), sexes (So many women!), and sexual orientations (Yay! We have a gay man). Identities that decades ago would have been a problem were now advantages.
Democrat voters, however, including minority voters, were unimpressed. They ignored all but the Asian and the gay candidates. On Tuesday’s debate stage, there were four white men, three of whom are old, one of whom is gay, and two older white women. Warren, Klobuchar, and Buttigieg still hold their identity cards (Women! Gays!), Bernie has the advantage of being the crazed communist uncle whom college kids love, and nobody cares about Steyer.
But poor Biden. He went into the debate without a victim identity. He was just the old white man who was affiliated with Barack Obama. Now, though, Biden is a victim, too. It’s a new type of victimhood, but one calculated to tug at the heartstrings: Biden is a “dad victim.”
