The Democrat Primary Field – Part 1 – Joe Biden

Looking at the field in the Democratic 2020 Presidential Primary it’s remarkable to see just how many of these people are demonstrably unhinged.  And I’m looking beyond Marianne Williamson and Corey Booker who are beyond the pale when it comes to eccentricity.  But right now, I’d like to start with the front runner, Creepy Uncle Joe Biden.

First off, with all the gaffes and dead air during the debates is there any doubt that Joe has lost more than a step or two off his fighting prime?  If elected he would be older than Reagan was when he stepped down in 1989.  And that is definitely the least of his problems.

Joe Biden is captured on film during official government proceedings sidling up behind women, grabbing their shoulders and sniffing their hair, or putting his hands on their ribcages just slightly below their breasts.  Now, definitely, in the reign of Caligula this kind of behavior would have been down right benign from a comparative psychosexual perspective.  But today, unless you’re a character in an FBI behavioral science procedural drama you’re supposed to keep your hands off the other homo sapiens you’re not married to.  What creepy fetishistic process is going on in his head when he does these kinds of things in front of cameras?  Does he think he’s invisible or above the scrutiny of observers?  Are we supposed to think that he’s just that over enthusiastic old uncle who likes to hug everybody but doesn’t mean anything by it?  What must it have been like in the Biden home around Christmas time with all the young girl relatives doing a duck and cover every time they heard slipper-shod footsteps closing in from behind?  The mind boggles.

Joe has been a strange duck since always.  Back in 1988 when he ran for President the first time he was hounded by multiple charges of plagiarism and inaccurate statements about his academic record and forced to withdraw.  Now admittedly some of this was because that dweeb Dukakis was playing lawyer ball against his rivals.  But let’s face it, lying about your college record isn’t very smart.  Then there’s the hair plugs.  Anyway, Joe’s whole career is littered with lies, exaggeration and braggadocio but without any actual accomplishments.  In a way he is the perfect Democrat candidate.

But now Joe has to win the 2020 nomination and Joe’s dinosaur version of Democrat candidacy doesn’t mesh with the woke, #metoo, progressive politics.  He’s been attacked by Kamala Harris for working with the Southern Democrats back in the 1970s.  She accused him of trying to keep young Kamala from being bussed back in California.  And Corey Booker accused Joe’s 1990s crime bill of incarcerating the entire population of Newark, New Jersey.  Poor Joe.

Initially Joe had been dialing back his aggression toward his fellow candidates because of the politically correct requirements of an old white male Democrat defending himself from the diversity scrum that the Democrat debates have turned into lately.  Because of this, Joe has somewhat become a punching bag for the likes of Kamala Harris and Corey Booker.  But finally, he seems to have escaped from this situation and is now fighting back with such inspired zingers as, “Watch out kid!” and “Go easy on me kid!”  The interesting thing about the race is that Joe’s standing in the polls really hasn’t been lowered very much at all from the heavy pounding he took in the first and second debates.  According to the news reports on television and the newspapers Joe was slaughtered in each of those debates and should have plummeted precipitously in the polls from all these beatings.  But there he still stands, way ahead of his opponents.  Apparently, the voters recognize that he has promised the fewest impossible things and therefore is the least unelectable Democrat in the general election.  And as his numbers remain above theirs, the lowest tier candidates will begin the depressing thought process of when to pull the plug on their hopeless pursuit of the nomination.  In fact, former Colorado Governor Hickenlooper and California Representative Swalwell have already pulled the plug and now will join the ranks of bitter losers mumbling “2024” under their breaths and counting up the money they managed to add to their war chests this year.

Does Joe have access to the industrial strength fix that was “in” when Hillary was running against Bernie and the Bros?  That’s the million-dollar question.  Has Obama anointed Joe?  Seemingly not.  All the indications are that Obama is keeping his options open.  He probably knows that Joe is not as inspiring to the Hopey/Changey crowd as he was.  But even slipping into imbecility and marked with the sign of Cain, Creepy Joe should be able to beat Liarwatha and the rest of the midgets.  After all, each of them has incredible negatives too.  Granny Warren was a pretend Cherokee.  Kamala Harris slept her way to the top.  Mayor Pete was the mayor of a large town!  Corey Booker, well he’s Corey Booker.  He actually called himself Spartacus, on purpose!  Bernie is like a Commie version of Uncle Leo from the Seinfeld show.  Joe will beat these guys because he can pretend to be sane.  They can’t hide their crazy.  He’s the bull goose looney and will be the candidate.

But that’s as far as he’ll get.  The general election will be a slaughter of poor Sleepy Creepy Joe.  After all President Trump is no kid and definitely won’t go easy on Biden.  Sorry Joe.

So, here’s to you Joe, you creepy, sleepy, gropey son of a gun.  You may be nuts but you’re still the best of the bunch.  Long may you grab those shoulders and sniff that hair.

 

Clown Car – Health Care – Food Fight

I tuned into a few minutes of the second night of the Second Democrat Primary Debate so my impressions are based on the topic under discussion at that point.  But I’m sure the rest of it was much the same.  I would describe it as something like what you would see and hear if a tornado ripped through an insane asylum.  Everywhere you look a virtual kaleidoscope of lunatics would be whizzing by.  The rules seem to limit each speech to something like eleven seconds but staccato rebuttals can go on endlessly.  And the top lunatic, based on face time seemed to be Kamala Harris.  My strongest impression of Harris is that no matter what she is talking about she is always on the verge of bursting into tears.  Her voice is almost choked with emotion regardless of whether she is emoting about the uninsured poor or bragging about Cathy Sebelius endorsing her health plan or demanding another rebuttal.  She’s like the emotionally unstable little sister in a family that gets her way because her parents are afraid to ever say no to her.  They fear that if she didn’t get her way, she’d shake herself to pieces through nervous fragility.  Kamala really is the poster child for the Progressive Left.  She’s wound up tighter than a spring but all of this nervous energy is just overwrought emotion.  There’s nothing else there.

It’s funny how surrounded by this crowd Joe Biden truly is the voice of sanity.  Now, granted, it is a dishonest voice.  But we’re used to plain old lying from Democrats.  It’s just that juxtaposed against Harris, DeBlasio, Booker and Gillibrand, Creepy Uncle Joe seems like a normal guy because he isn’t speaking gibberish.

Based on the audience response and the way the moderators are according rebuttal time Creepy Joe is basically on trial.  He’s being tag teamed like a pinata surrounded by a fifth-grade class.  And he was starting to seem a little raggedy from the pounding.  My guess is that tomorrow he’ll be announced the big loser of the night and Spartacus will be the flavor of the week.  And snap polls will show Creepy Joe   down to low single digit leads over the second tier of Bernie and Fauxcahontas.  But that seems like a replay of the first debate.  I’m still betting that a week from now Joe will start heading back up to 30% and the rest of the clown parade will be half of that or much less.

Now when this race gets down to a six-way horse race maybe one of that second tier will break loose.  But right now, it’s just a melee of maniacs shouting out nutty stuff that costs tens of trillions of dollars and hoping to last another week.  Joe just has to put up with the abuse until the crowd shrinks down to the point where accountability prevents gibberish from being acceptable.

Hail to you Creepy Pinata Joe.  Long may you be pummeled by CNN and the Clown Parade.  Keep your head above water for a few more months and you’ll get to be the nominee and before you’re eviscerated by President Trump, you’ll get to stuff a billion dollars into your campaign war chest and ride off into the sunset like the Clintons.

 

President Trump Agrees with My Opinion

Although I’ve been kind of hoping that the psychos will carry the day and give us Democrat Candidate Spartacus or Candidate Mayor Pete I’ve gone on record saying I think Creepy Uncle Joe will be the candidate.  Apparently President Trump agrees.  Great minds think alike.

But I’ll bet he also would like to face off against the wackier choices.  Who could resist that kind of fun?

Reading Some More Tea Leaves

Tom Friedman of the New York Times is one of my least favorite people.  And the last thing I want to do is provide the NY Times with clicks.  But the teaser was just so delicious I couldn’t resist:

“I’m struck at how many people have come up to me recently and said, “Trump’s going to get re-elected, isn’t he?” And in each case, when I drilled down to ask why, I bumped into the Democratic presidential debates in June. I think a lot of Americans were shocked by some of the things they heard there. I was.”

And Friedman was far from the only panicky lefty begging the Democrat voters not to jump on the Crazy Train to Bizarro World.  That’s the place where $37 trillion green new deals come to life and send Democrat candidates over the rainbow but not into the White House.

Here are the links but don’t feel obligated to click.  I’ve suffered so you don’t have to.

Looking at today’s RealClearPolitics poll numbers Creepy Uncle Joe Biden seems to have regained his large lead in all the primary polls available.  Now whether this is manufactured or not is always very hard to tell since gaslighting is their principal stock in trade.  After all the drama last week I was very curious to see if one of the zanier candidates like Booker or Beto might have benefitted from the show of solidarity for the Four Horsefaces of the Apocalypse by the House.

But anyway you slice it, less crazy Democrats are getting very worried that the nuttier positions that all the Democrat candidates have agreed with (e.g., full healthcare for illegal aliens) will scare away all moderates and independents.  And they should be scared.  Especially when we know that the next debate coming up will be powered by the rage engendered by President Trump’s masterful trolling of Ilhan Omar.  Without a doubt illegal immigration will be an important subject and nutty things are bound to come out.  And in that crowd, there will be a strong temptation to say way too much.

But maybe Friedman’s column and the other ones are a signal that cooler heads are already applying the brakes to the Crazy Train and that the next debate will be more about demonstrating the moderate and statesmanlike behavior that Creepy Uncle Joe displays whenever he’s tied to the two-wheeler and they remember to use both the bite mask and straitjacket.

This should be a very interesting week.  On Tuesday Boris Johnson will be appointed leader of the Tories and that will mean he’ll be Prime Minister as soon as they can get him a sword or powdered wig or whatever.  Johnson has sworn to complete Brexit by Halloween.  Well, that’s right around the corner so he’s going to have to get his butt in gear ASAP.  Making it happen will be far from a cakewalk so there may be fireworks on the horizon.

But the week after this is the next Dem debate.  And as I described above, it will be seen whether the grownups are back in charge or the lunatics are still running the asylum.  My money has been with the grownups and if I’m right Biden will have a very good night.  But, of course, what I’d prefer is for Spartacus or Mayor Pete to put his pinky next to the corner of his mouth and in his best Dr. Evil impression declare that he will demand that America pay “one googol dollars!” in reparations to everyone who doesn’t work for a living and won’t vote for Donald Trump.

I have to confess the last few weeks have been confusing but I’m encouraged by just how much naked fear is being expressed by the Progressives who have jobs in the Media.  I think they know that a second term will put an end to the success of the “Oust-Trump” bandwagon that they’ve been living off for the last three years.  They’re desperate and they know if the crazies run this campaign their goose is cooked.  Well, I think their goose is cooked regardless.  But fear, uncertainty and disinformation (FUD) is always wonderful when it’s running loose in the enemy camp.  “Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war.”
