Kamala Harris is a national treasure.
Oh, not because she's actually any good at her job. She's not. She's terrible. The border she's been tasked with fixing is still in complete shambles, our foreign policy's a mess, it's a disaster.
But hey - at least the woman's good for a laugh! Take this week, for instance, when the nation's Vice Rambler In Chief trotted out to wax poetic about the magical qualities of...a school bus.
"So, here's the thing. Who doesn't love a yellow school bus? Raise your hand if you just love a yellow school bus!" Harris weirdly demanded of her audience Wednesday.

Many of us went to school on the yellow school bus, right? ...The excitement and joy of going to school...the school bus takes us there." pic.twitter.com/Ksdvy8J8z5— Washington Free Beacon (@FreeBeacon) October 26, 2022
"There's just something about...and, and most of us went to school on a yellow school bus...the excitement and joy of going to school, to be with your favorite teacher, to be with your best friends, and to learn, the school bus takes us there," she added.
Profound stuff here.
Look, as someone who rode a lot of school buses as a kid, there's not a lot of wonder to be found in ripped vinyl seats covered with gum. Unless Miss Frizzle was on it, school buses weren't magical.
Of course, it's hard to find the magic when you're choking on fumes that are leeching into your brain and turning you into a slobbering vegetable - or, at least, that's the image Harris painted when ranting against the evil diesel fuel that's killing our nation's kids.

You'd think that a party so concerned about the health and wellbeing of students and their academic careers wouldn't have spent the better part of two years kicking kids out of classrooms over a virus that didn't threaten them, only to turn around and gaslight all of us into believing that never happened.
