Tim Kaine, Shmegegge: Speech of the VP-Wannabe of Mexico Was a Total Bomb

By Debbie Schlussel


Follow Me on Twitter . . .

Spanish, Spanish, Spanish, Bad Trump Imitation, Spanish, Spanish Lesson, Spanish, Bad Trump, Spanish Lesson, Bad Joke, Spanish.

That’s my summary of Vice-President-Wannabe Tim Kaine’s boring, disjointed, silly speech last night at the Democratic National Convention a/k/a DemComicCon in Philly. It was a BOMB.

Like many of you, I already know of Kaine’s history of Islamo-pandering (which dates back to his days as a Catholic missionary, his earlier career as a “civil rights lawyer,” and the beginnings of his Social Justice Warriorhood). But his eyebrows and his look reminded me of the late great Jonathan Harris’ “Dr. Zachary Smith” on the vintage TV series “Lost In Space.” And I could hear the robot shouting, “Danger, Will Robinson! Danger!” Danger, America! Danger!

Then, there was the speech, about half of which was in Spanish. I mean, is this guy running for Veep of the U.S. or El-Veep of Mexico? If you heard the speech, you’d assume the latter. I speak several languages, none of which is Spanish, so I hadn’t a clue what this putz was saying. This is America, chump. SPEAK ENGLISH. A guy who speaks in Spanish (and I include George W. Bush in this category) is a guy who wants to practice identity politics, engage in multi-culturalist double-speak, and further divide America. We used to have things that united us all–TV shows, shared experiences, and the same language: English. If we don’t share that, then what do we share? I’m not sure there is anything common to Americans anymore. There is nothing that unites us . . . because dumbasses speak in Spanish while running for office in the United States of America. Pretty soon, many of them will speak Arabic while doing so . . . as they already do in Dearbornistan, Dearbornistan Heights, and Hamtramckstan, Michigan.

By the way, if Kaine was gonna speak any Spanish, he needed to tell us, “Yo Soy Moron.”

[DS: “Punim” is Hebrew and Yiddish for “face.”]

In addition to mucho Spanish–and several failed Spanish lessons–this guy, Kaine, did several very bad, epic fail Donald Trump imitations. They bombed. Who the heck told this guy he does a good Trump impression? My friend’s 10-year-old son does a better Melania imitation. You could tell this person, Kaine, has a lot of yes-men (and yes-women) surrounding him–that they let him do that failed Trump imitation on the stage, not just once, but several times. It was like watching a bad cattle call for Last Comic Standing.

And all of the Spanish and the bad Trump impressions were distracting. I can’t remember most of what this guy said–that of it I could understand. All I remember was that he mostly attacked Trump and embraced liberal tripe. But it just wasn’t memorable at all. Because this guy isn’t memorable.

The main thing that I noted was what a lightweight this guy is. A total empty suit. A complete nothingburger. Not in the least bit impressive. Not even close. He reminds me of a bland doctor or accountant droning on and on. Or maybe the neighbor mowing the lawn.

Every single other person who was on Hillary’s short list heard this speech and was saying to him-and-herself, “I lost out to this chump?!” The guy is a nothing, a putz, a shlemiel (the guy who spills the soup) and shlemazel (the guy on which the shlemiel spills the soup) at the same time, and the very walking definition of shmegegge. Not that I intended to give you a Yiddish lesson, but this guy embodies a ton of common Yiddish nouns, none of ’em good.

Mike Pence is gonna blow this guy away in the VP debates. I can’t wait.

Whatta putz that guy, Tim Kaine, is. What a nothing. A total zero.

Gotta say it: this guy makes me miss Creepy, Crazy Uncle Joe (Biden) already. At least he gave us non-stop comedy gold for nearly eight years.

Debbie’s salient point for me was about having nothing that unites us these days. Exactly.

And I DO appreciate the Yiddish lesson, by the way. My mother used a bit of Yiddish around the house, picked up mostly from her mom, the 1905 Ellis Island Grandma the seamstress from Bialystok, Poland.

By the way Debbie, thanks also for giving me a picture of something. I KNEW this guy was weird looking, just couldn’t place it. I never really watched that show, so didn’t have much of a reference, LOL!!!

And no, I didn’t watch a minute of either Convention, as I don’t watch such stuff, nor do I watch any television news, unless I’m at someone’s place and they have a TV on. But I do see clips when prompted by an interesting article, or something that piques my curiosity.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on July 28, 2016 at 2:01 pm

On second thought, I’m thinking he also resembles someone else. Could it be Whitey Bulger? Someone else? Not sure. Someone help me out here.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on July 28, 2016 at 2:18 pm

    Seems to have a bit of the Bill O’Reilly look too.

    bigpaise on July 31, 2016 at 2:58 pm

I’ve learnt some Yiddish and Hebrew in my time, and though the word I’m about to use to describe Tim Kaine isn’t either, it’s loosely based thereon. Overall, Kaine is full of schleboodle. You figure that one out.

ConcernedPatriot on July 28, 2016 at 2:19 pm

P.S. The term “DNCon” to describe this mess is very apt. They sure are pulling a con job on the American sheeple.

ConcernedPatriot on July 28, 2016 at 2:21 pm

Like Shmendrik

Panhandle on July 28, 2016 at 2:56 pm

    Panhandle: LOL.

    skzion on July 29, 2016 at 11:52 am

Your Yiddish lesson reminded me of the “LAVERNE AND SHIRLEY” television show, which actually starts out with the two of them skipping down the sidewalk and chanting, “1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, Schlimiel! Schlamazel! Hasenpfeffer Incorporated!”

I don’t care anything about any of the politics, Democratic or Republican, but, ah, the memories!

John Robert Mallernee on July 28, 2016 at 3:08 pm

    Good afternoon John,

    Sir thank you for bringing up “Laverne and Shirley.” I was a poor boy growing up in WVA and as such we didn’t have cable. The only TV in the house was an old 19″ color Panasonic with tin foiled tipped rabbit ears. We only got ABC, NBC, CBS, and PBS but we didn’t care because it was like gold to us. Anyway this show came on Tuesdays along with “Happy Days,” “Three’s Company,” “9 to 5,” and “Hart to Hart” at 10. Talk about must see TV. Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday morning were the days back then. We got cable a few years later when I started middle school and you’d thought we won the lottery. Awesome memories : )

    Ken B on July 29, 2016 at 3:21 pm

Kaine is also a shmendrik with a goyisher kop!

PaulaMalka on July 28, 2016 at 4:44 pm

Though Kaine read his teleprompter without a glitch, as far as I’m concerned this klutz is no mensch and he scored a bagel with his pandering spiel and Spanish shtick. He had a lot of chutzpah to convey a load of such empty schlock. This is what happens when you have tush for brains. His speech was so annoying I could just plotz.

Ralph Adamo on July 28, 2016 at 4:48 pm

WTH is up with all those Palestinian Flags being flown at the convention? Whats up with these democrats, seriously, that shi. is not funny

MrBigBrain on July 28, 2016 at 4:58 pm

    Apparently some running the convention were taking heat over those Palestinian flags (and no American flags). A news report a few minutes ago says they’re assembling a slew of American flags to be brought into the arena tonight.

    Raymond in DC on July 28, 2016 at 10:18 pm

This guy is a bit of a dork, I thought, a goofball

MrBigBrain on July 28, 2016 at 4:58 pm

He was a pathetic slob.

Worry on July 28, 2016 at 5:11 pm

Aside from anything else, let me say that I have a good 30-40 pounds to lose but at least I came by it honestly by not being able to exercise after abdominal cancer surgery.

But Tim Kaine is a jowly belly-shelfer and has no one to blame but himself.

Ingot on July 28, 2016 at 6:11 pm

“I speak several languages, none of which is Spanish, so I hadn’t a clue what this putz was saying. This is America, chump. SPEAK ENGLISH. A guy who speaks in Spanish (and I include George W.

As someone who speaks several languages, are you saying it would be a different story if he made a speech in another language? I have hispanic friends, coworkers, and classmates from several backgrounds including Salvadorean, Puerto Rican, Colombian, Dominican, Cuban, etc. I don’t speak Spanish though I can read some of it and translate some of it. I do know that there are dialects and different Spanish accents among the Latin American countries. They’re not all like the entitled illegals granted amnesty under Obama. I havent watched the RNC nor the DNC. I didn’t watch Tim Kaine’s speech so it may sound ok by Ecuadorian standards but maybe not by Mexican standards.

M: You missed my point entirely, which is that this is America, and we speak English here (or used to). He spoke Spanish, which was absurd for an acceptance speech for the nomination of VP of the USA. The only language he should have spoken is the one everyone is expected to know to become a citizen here: ENGLISH. That’s the point, the only point. Get it? Got it? Good. DS

Matthew on July 28, 2016 at 7:25 pm

    Your right Debbie your point went over Matthews head like a mortar round.

    Ken B on July 29, 2016 at 3:38 pm

      I got it now 🙂

      Matthew on August 19, 2016 at 11:33 pm

This takedown was one of the funniest pieces Debbie has ever done. But I have to admit, it hurts; Tim Kaine for several years was my governor. Not that I actually voted for that Hispandering empty suit or our current Virginia governor, friend-of-Hillary Terry McAuliffe.

Primetime on July 28, 2016 at 9:42 pm

To the party that calls Hillary the most qualified person in American history to be president this man probably looks like a freakin’ genius, above and beyond any Einstein.
As for the Spanish, I’m sure he was trying to reach their illegal constituents. Maybe he should put on a dress to reach the LGBTXYZ community too.

theShadow on July 28, 2016 at 10:01 pm

I agree. His speech was terrible. Just listened to Chelsea. Her speech was nausea inducing. Now Hillary. Does she have any vision? Doubt it.

Hillel on July 28, 2016 at 10:25 pm

I am waiting for my favourite Ken B. to post!

This was so funny! This dude looks like a dopey piece of melting pla-doh! I never trust Libtard Jesuits either. Big Dhimmi!

Libtards are so passionately retarded. You can always stranglehold them with their own hypocrisy!

Ugh, now the games begin. What a joke this great country has become. It’s a confederation of dunces who have lost dignity years ago…

Skunky on July 28, 2016 at 10:39 pm

    That last sentence is as well as our dilemma can be put, Skunky.

    Alfredo from Puerto Rico on July 29, 2016 at 12:38 am

The prissy man was wearing more makeup than Bozo the Clown. That isn’t hyperbole, either.

Joe on July 28, 2016 at 11:16 pm

He was very prissy

MrBigBrain on July 29, 2016 at 12:58 am

“The prissy man was wearing more makeup than Bozo the Clown. That isn’t hyperbole, either.
Joe on July 28, 2016 at 11:16 pm”

Maybe he tried to take my advice about reaching out to the LGBTMNOP community and forgot to wear the dress.

theShadow on July 29, 2016 at 1:52 am

If this clown were a Republican, the only thing we would be hearing about from the liberal press is his goofy looks!

Tommy Thomas on July 29, 2016 at 7:24 am

With regard to Kaine speaking Spanish and catering to the Spanish speaking I would suggest that the same courtesy be extended to Jews in this country. Every politician should include Yiddish in his speeches. As well of course as Spanish,Arabic and Chinese. This would make no sense to the audience but even in plain English most politicians never make sense anyway.

Jerry G on July 29, 2016 at 8:13 am

It used to be the case that Democratic presidential candidates would pretend they were moderates when running for office. Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter were examples of this, and even Obama in 2008, in spite of his background, tried to present such an image.

Now they don’t seem to be doing that anymore. But they still see some value in it, but it has been relegated to the Vice-Presidential candidate. And of course the ‘moderate’ can’t be too obtrusive.

Little Al on July 29, 2016 at 9:00 am

Although to be fair, Pence has always been for open borders.

Little Al on July 29, 2016 at 9:01 am

The problem is the majority of the electorate are morons (There is no other way to explain a President Obama) so Clinton/Kaine is going to win.

I_AM_ME on July 29, 2016 at 9:04 am

    Your “moron” theory isn’t the best explanation for the actions of the electorate. Here’s my quick take, first on the past and then on the future.

    Obama was the result of 8 years of George W. Bush. And the American public had had enough of him and others like him. This also explains why Jeb Bush disappeared so quickly, even though he was heavily promoted financially and by the media.

    As for the future, here are two telling polls of the US voting population.

    1. Is the US going in the wrong direction? 6 polls say between 67% and 71% of those polled think the US is going in the wrong direction.

    2. Is Hillary Clinton trustworthy? The polls show that about 66% don’t trust her.

    So on two key indicators, about two thirds of the voting population should not be favoring Clinton. Of course, I’m assuming that there is a certain logic to the public’s voting predilections.

    However, you could still be right in the end, and the population ends up voting Clinton into the White House, because who else by morons would vote for candidate that promises to take the US in the wrong direction and whom they distrust more than Trump?

    Ralph Adamo on July 29, 2016 at 4:37 pm

BTW, the word ‘historic’ has become one of the most obnoxious cliches around.

Little Al on July 29, 2016 at 9:39 am

    Like when I went with some friends to see Led Zeppelin at the Nassau Coliseum on February 4, 1976, and John Bonham did somewhere in the range of a 22-25 minute frenzied drum solo.

    THAT was historic.

    And of course, at one point, Robert Plant said something about every once in a while we go backstage to “get some head.” The whole audience cheered, although that could have been taken two ways. And Led Zeppelin probably DID it both ways as well, LOL!!!

    Yup, that was historic.


    Alfredo from Puerto Rico on July 29, 2016 at 11:20 pm

Bad choice.
Won’t help the ticket one bit.
Comes across as oafish and dull.
She should have picked Sanders,just to shut up his moronic followers ,who were given more than they deserved at the convention.
However,I hope that the Democrats wipe the floor with the evil Trump.

Paul Gleitman on July 29, 2016 at 10:25 am

Bad choice.
Should have picked Sanders himself or Elizabeth Warren

Paul Gleitman on July 29, 2016 at 10:27 am

Picture it Virginia 1995. A young newly married sailor transferring from the loony Left Coast about to go to a command where his new ship hasn’t been completed yet. I have 2 weeks to get my crap together then get transferred to the deep south were the ship is actually located. One year later the brand new ship is home ported in VA. Back then we had an exceptional governor in George Allen and right before I left we got stuck with the frumpy fat pandering doofus Tim Kaine. The Eyebrow as I called him because he has that habit of raising one of his brows looking like The Rock from the WWE. Back then this idiot was a bumbling, corrupt, Islamic loving stooge. He did things that made Bob McDonnell look like a gift getting choirboy. This sloppy brainiac also closed down rest stops in one of the most tourist driven states in the union. The joke was if you came to drive through Virginia you better learn to hold what’s in ya. I guess it’s good that VA only lets the governor serve one four year term. That way they can’t screw up to bad and move onto bigger things like VP for corrupt liberal politicians. Or in McAuliffe’s case if the PIAPS wins he could rent out the Lincoln Bedroom again. Like I said earlier we had good governors back then (not counting horse face Warner)but with the infestation of Northern Virginia with DC federal bugs you get a Clintonoid scumbag. Kaine lacks the shysterness of McAwful but he’s just as greasy. I too hope that Mike Pence takes his lunch in their debate because if he doesn’t it’ll be a snooze fest. Just in case I’ll have my no doze handy like I did last night listening to Cruella DeClinton.

Ken B on July 29, 2016 at 12:38 pm

    LOL, Ken B. I saw peeps all wee-weed up bcuz there is a meme saying silly putty Kaine used to look like Henry Cavill in his youth. Gosh, he aged awful then and who cares anyway as there are no time machines and he could look like Tom Hardy and still be a right turn-off!!! Oh gosh, what have we become???

    Skunky on July 30, 2016 at 12:38 am

      Yeah my dear Skunky it doesn’t take much to spin up the stupid liberal Hillary supporters. These people make it too easy…LOL! Kaine just wishes he looked like Henry Cavill. The closest that frumpy democrat tool will come too looking like is a taller youthful Danny DeVito. Kaine is more of a penguin than a Superman.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on July 29, 2016 at 12:47 pm

    That’s right Al good buddy I’m down here in my hidden bunker somewhere in North Carolina. Transmitting to you good people live from Station WTHO. What The Hell Over is what that stands for. Because every time I see or hear Hillary Clinton I go what the hell do we have to do to get rid of this lying, corrupt POS…LOL!

    Ken B on August 1, 2016 at 11:44 am

Part of that ridiculous nauseating speech was the frequent repeating of a phrase. That’s something Obama does and this guy did it often. To no effect of course.

Furthermore, he was over the top effeminate sounding. I know he’s married but this guy may go both ways. It made sense actually. Hillary is most definitely a ladies woman so why wouldn’t she want someone effeminate to serve as her #2. Basically, he came off as her bitch.

I don’t want to be too hard on the guy but I saw nothing to think he should be a governor let alone the second in command for the US. Wow, a guy like him would have been unheard of in days gone by.

Barry on July 29, 2016 at 6:06 pm

Hillary Clinton’s first Presidential Decision – Tim Kaine

Stan on July 29, 2016 at 11:09 pm

Trump wants told Jeb to speak in English while he was in the US, and that stung him. He should have repeated the same to Tim Kaine, while doing an imitation of Kaine’s imitation of himself, which would have been better than Kaine’s.

Anyway, all those Bernie supporters can now go to Jill Stein. Wonder whether she’s as rabid a Jihadist supporter like Bernie is?

Infidel on July 30, 2016 at 7:52 pm

Kaine looks like a kid toucher; very creepy. Trump also needs to slam him for an OPSEC violation when he told the world the day of his son’s unit deployment in addition to speaking Spanish.

Todd on July 30, 2016 at 8:16 pm

Today, I liked Trump lashing out against the Paki couple. Just b’cos their son died, we are supposed to take in Muzzies from everywhere – Syria, Pakistan, Emirates, et al, and assume they won’t kill us!!!

Hitlery, you can have the Muzzie vote!!!

Infidel on July 31, 2016 at 3:15 am

I’ve got so much going on that I haven’t had a moment for myself, much less news, politics or conventions–I’ll trust Debbie’s judgment regarding Tim Kaine’s persona and performance but I would like to chime in on the REALLY REALLY important stuff. TIm Kaine looks like he was spawned from the DNA of Carroll O’Connor and Bill O’Reilly.

Even more important is his Hebrew/Yiddush name. Remember, names in the Tanakh are as much a description as they are an identity so it should come as no surprise that the most fitting name AND description for Kaine is schmeckle.

YCHtT on July 31, 2016 at 5:24 am

Captain John Robinson, quoted on ‘Family Guy’:

“We need to chart this planet. Greg, you take my 16 year old blonde daughter out in the chariot for the rest of the day. Penny, you stay with me. And Will, you and the robot go out into the uncharted wilderness and take this mincing, boy-hungry pedophile with you.”

Joe on July 31, 2016 at 11:24 pm

And I felt absolutely certain that Hillary would pick Ted Cruz to be her running mate!
