"Kanye West will not garner enough voters to become president. But he can garner enough voters to determine the outcome of this election," said Terrance Woodbury, a Democratic pollster. . .Political operatives on both sides of the aisle said West's campaign appears to be little more than an effort to skim support from Democratic nominee Joe Biden and boost Trump's reelection odds. One source told CNN that GOP operatives believed they had the Trump campaign's blessing to aid West's efforts.

Could it be that seeing an opportunity in titillating Kanye West's gigantic narcissism, Trump operatives convinced West to run for President? Or perhaps West is consciously trying to undermine Biden. Will West fans, in enough numbers--or just a percentage of black voters--pull the lever for West in swing states? It didn't take much in Michigan in 2016. It didn't take many votes--mysteriously vanished or brazenly suppressed--to shift Florida to Bush in 2000.

Anyone who would vote for West just because he's their fave, is grotesquely irresponsible, in this time of national emergency.

Narcissism, vanity, can make an intelligent man into a fool. That's what it's done to Kanye West. And he might be the Republican Party's pet fool.
