Many people laugh at me when I say that I follow pro wrestling. “You know it’s fake,” they say. My response is often, “well, you follow politics.”
For readers who don't get the, joke here it is: modern politics is no more real (arguably less so) than pro wrestling. This was no more clearly on display this week when Joe Biden selected Kamala Harris as his running mate.
You may remember during the Democratic primary debates when Kamala Harris attacked Joe Biden’s record on race and implying his support for segregation? That seemed pretty personal. But now they’re best buddies.
In wrestling, that’s what we call kayfabe.
What about when Harris said she believes the women accusing Biden of inappropriate behavior towards them. Is that just water under the bridge?
Of course, that was just part of her shtick, which every pro wrestler…I mean politician…needs.
