If there’s anything Camera Girl enjoys it’s watching Pat Sajak and Vanna White give away money to happy go lucky contestants spinning the wheel of fortune. But tonight, Dementia Joe pre-empted the show and now she is mightily ticked off at the loser.
As she fast forwarded through the dvr recording she stopped at several points and I could hear Mumbly Joe going through his various emotive techniques. His hoarse whispering, his references to God, his fake anger. He did all of those. Now I’m not a fanatical wheeler watcher like Camera Girl but even I was appalled that a useful and enjoyable television presentation was lost for the sake of letting that lunatic berate us and lie to us for half an hour or so.
I’m trying to think of a scenario where I would waste half an hour listening to Joe Biden. And restricting the question to probable cases, I can’t think of a single one. I mean it’s highly unlikely that he’d confess to all his high crimes on a televised address. That would get me. But Joe’s too good a liar to let that happen.
I guess he has his best excuse at getting my attention during the State of the Union Address. But I skipped that. Would you count a debate with Donald Trump? I’d call that incidental viewing because without Trump there just wouldn’t be any reason to watch it.
So, Joe is making the full court press to pass a gun control law. I guess it’s possible that McConnell is cowardly enough to agree to something like that. I wouldn’t be shocked if they cave. It is their defining feature to allow themselves to be stampeded off a cliff. We’ll have to see just how stupid the Stupid Party is this time.
So, we’ll have to find something else to watch tonight. I’ve recorded the 1972 Russian language sci-fi classic Solaris. Camera Girl would rather be boiled in oil than watch a sub-titled foreign film. So, it will have to wait until later. We’ll watch an episode of the new Harry Bosch cable series. It’s not as good as the previous seasons. Bosch’s daughter who is played by an actress that looks like she weighs seventy-five pounds soaking wet is supposed to be an LAPD trainee. I’ve had to watch her supposedly tackle male suspects and cuff them. My nine-year-old grandson could body slam her and not break a sweat. But it’s slim pickings on television these days.
It should be interesting to see if the Evil Party can somehow distract the voters from the crashing of the US economy. The old election saw was, “It’s the economy, stupid!”. But I wonder. Nowadays it might be said that, “It’s the stupid, stupid!”. After all, this is a country where approximately half of the people voted for Joe Biden, a seventy-eight-year-old mental patient, for president. I guess it’s possible that America is just too stupid to protect itself from grifters and psychopaths. From my point of view, the good news is that we’ve got the acid test in front of us. If there isn’t a tidal wave of voters to throw the Democrats out then the Dissident Right is right. We’re completely washed up and I’ll need Plan B. So, five months to find out the answer. I guess I can wait.
