"Someone once called Joe Biden the only 29-year-old underachiever ever elected to the United States Senate," Paul Taylor wrote in his 1989 opus See How they Run. Biden, he noted, whose 1988 presidential run had ended in disaster, tended to confuse words with action. Mary McGrory once described him as "a collection of good instincts and incoherent utterance, pleasant, energetic, but not in control." In the New Yorker, Elizabeth Drew wrote that he was "knocked out by a weakness that was going to catch up with him ... intellectual barrenness." He was a "nice guy who hasn’t demonstrated depth or mental or verbal discipline,"

Slow Joe may be an idiot, but he is certainly not a "nice guy". Biden is petty, vindictive, and a brazen liar.

Joe Biden's career was only possible in a city/state like Delaware. Every time he ran in a larger venue, he got creamed by the competition. Barack Obama chose his VP well - a lightweight who was no competition.

Consider the desperation of a party that would put their hopes in Biden's basket. Consider the lightweights and Communists they have placed on the stage for consideration. This is a party in the process of collapsing.

That million dollar smile has always been his best asset. His friendly touchy-feely vib used to be appealing, but in light of the metro movement, it has turned into a liability. The main reason he is unelectable is that he appears to be a few short years away from a nursing home with a memory care unit.

I knew a guy like that in my "hippie" days. Always pontificating about issues he had no clue about. Nobody wanted to be around him because he was obnoxious to a fault. He had initial charm on first meeting him, but soon revealed a pattern of lying and exaggerating to bolster his weak self-esteem. He could have been Biden's cousin.

The almost comically oblivious Biden lives with, as Elizabeth Drew wrote along ago, "intellectual barrenness." Even in his young adulthood his IQ mightn't have achieved an honest 80: naturally barren. Now he's senile to boot. Napoleon XIV in 1966 was ahead of his time. "...And then the days got worse and worse And now you see I've gone Completely out of my mind And they're coming to take me away ha-haaa They're coming to take me away ho-ho hee-hee ha-haaa To the funny farm Where life is beautiful all the time And I'll be happy to see those nice young men In their clean white coats And they're coming to take me away ha-haaa" Forward and backward, here is that hit single from 53 years ago. Side B is side A with the tape running backward. The Beatles weren't the only ones fiddling with backward tapes in 1966. ("Rain" was the first song to employ that technique.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXOwNOf2QXY Give Slo Jo the nurses employed by the late Hugh Hefner. You know, the ones who shampoo with Clairol Herbal Essence and measure 36-22-32. That's what he really wants. Why does he persist in this national joke that only he doesn't comprehend? Summon the men in white with the butterfly nets. He's thoroughly baked, done. Take him out da oven.

1. Bloomberg got his start on the path to corporate titanhood when he was paid $10 million and let go by Salomon Brothers as part of Phibro Corporation’s purchase of the venerable Wall Street firm. In his autobiography, Bloomberg on Bloomberg, he writes that he couldn’t understand why some of his colleagues insisted upon telling their spouses about the deal immediately. “Strict instructions to the contrary notwithstanding, some partners did telephone their wives that Friday night. I thought it was nonsensical to make your spouse a possible leak suspect. What difference would it make if she didn’t know for an extra day?” 2. In the same book, Bloomberg describes

Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein is having a tough time acclimating to life as a convicted rapist, battling insomnia and being reduced to scarfing down bologna sandwiches, according to a source and Weinstein allies. “This is a very tough adjustment, and he’s not doing it well,” said the law enforcement source of Weinstein, who’s been held in Bellevue Hospital for high blood pressure since shortly after his Monday conviction on counts of rape and criminal sex act. “He was on top of the world with women, mansions and wine and song. Now that’s all over,” said the insider. “Tonight he’s eating a bologna sandwich.”

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has made some extraordinary promises in his campaign for president, including free health care, a federal jobs guarantee, universal forgiveness of all student debt, and radical expansions of nearly every government program from Social Security to housing subsidies. When asked at a CNN town hall last night how he would pay for this gargantuan expansion of government, Sen. Sanders presented moderator Chris Cuomo with a new document that Sanders claimed detailed how he would pay for his proposals. But don’t be fooled: these numbers still don’t add up, and Sanders should be pressed to explain his magic math at tonight’s debate.

Former Vice President Joe Biden during Tuesday night's Democratic debate pledged to nominate the first black woman to the Supreme Court if he’s elected president. The former vice president used a question round about every candidate’s personal motto to make the pledge, pivoting to his message about the high court after listing his personal values. “When you're get knocked down, get up, and everyone’s entitled to be treated with dignity — no matter what, no matter who they are,” Biden began. “Also, that everyone should be represented. No one is better than me and I’m no better than everyone else.”

Washington Poor old James Carville is in the dumps. He doubts that Crazy Bernie can beat President Donald Trump in November. He appeared on MSNBC last week and said that anyone who thought Bernie would turn out more voters and in sufficient numbers to beat Donald Trump was “a fool.” Well, on that point he might be right. Carville has been dealing with fools for years, and doubtless he knows whereof he speaks. But I would think he would have more respect for his constituents. Hillary might need her fools to beat the deplorables. Every fool counts, James. The campaign strategist who coined the line “it’s the economy, stupid”

Shoot first, answer questions later! The 2020 Democratic frontrunner Bernie Sanders withstood a barrage of attacks — some withering — Tuesday night from his six rivals, who mounted the last best effort to slow his momentum heading into the South Carolina primary, said Democratic consultant Monica Klein, who rated the candidate performances for The Post. The rest of the race remains in flux thanks to former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s late entry into the contest and his big spending, which has finally given Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren the foil she needed to define her campaign to voters, Klein added.

The perfect sequel to that NYT analysis that John wrote about earlier reminding the world that Berniemania has not, in fact, caused a massive surge of progressive young bros at the polls in the early states this year. Eyeball the head-to-head polling at RCP and you’ll find a curious quirk. Bernie Sanders, allegedly the least electable candidate against Trump, actually polls the best against him. I’ve referenced that data in several posts myself as evidence that the socialist won’t be as much of a pushover this fall as everyone thinks.

CBS anchors Norah O'Donnell and Gayle King began moderating Tuesday night's Democratic debate, and Twitter critics were quick to say they "lost control" of the candidates. Before welcoming additional moderators, the CBS Evening News anchor and the CBS This Morning co-anchor helmed the debate, but many on social media knocked their inability to keep the candidates in line. "These moderators might be the weakest moderators I've seen in a debate. They have absolutely no control over who is speaking and they are forcing candidates to steamroll them if they want any speaking time. This is a trainwreck," writer Josh Jordan declared.

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg is trying a novel strategy to win the Democratic presidential nomination. The former New York City mayor, who was a Republican up until 2013, is skipping the first four races completely and has bet big on Super Tuesday—when a third of the delegates are up for grabs—and the primaries that come after. Bloomberg, who is worth about $61 billion, has already put $460 million into his campaign so far, blowing the rest of the candidates out of the water. With its 415 pledged delegates, California is one of the big prizes on Super Tuesday, and Vermont senator Bernie Sanders currently has a commanding lead in polls there.

Heather Mac Donald is one of America’s great heroines. For no reason other than love of her country, Western civilization and common sense, she ventures repeatedly into the bizarre and hostile world of America’s colleges and universities. If students listened to her, they would learn a lot. Alas, most of them are not up to that task. Heather has often been subjected not just to rudeness, but to threats of violence. I can draw on my own experience here. Last year, my youngest daughter invited Heather to give a talk at her college.

While it may be true that “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” (Shakespeare) it is also true that socialism by any other name still smells like socialism. As we approach this year’s elections, the purveyors of socialism have tried to rebrand their product by calling it “democratic socialism.” The sales force and marketing department of democratic socialism, the Democratic Party, and the mainstream media, are plying a new fairy tale that democratic socialism is nothing like socialism. No siree, nothing like it, they sing in chorus. The chorus, however, is badly out of tune. Democratic socialism is not the wonderland of inclusiveness,

Biden was asked how he would stop gun violence, with the moderator noting that “Congress has not been able to pass a major gun legislation in a quarter of a century.” The former vice president said that he is “the only one who ever got it done nationally” before making the false claim that 150 million people have been killed by guns since 2007. “One hundred fifty million people have been killed since 2007,

And your public school will be more than happy to help. Need an abortion? Tell your teacher. Want to refill your birth control? Go to the school clinic. Thinking about starting hormone treatments? Your parents will never find out. At least, not under the policy the California Teachers Association is pushing. That’s the amazing revelation from last month’s union meeting.

The bill, called Assembly Bill 2826, was introduced by Assemblymember Evan Low, a Democrat from Campbell. According to Politico, retailers would be able to sell the same products, as long as they dedicate space where customers can find clothes and toys regardless of whether the items have been marketed to boys or girls. “Keeping similar items that are traditionally marketed either for girls or for boys separated makes it more difficult for the consumer to compare the products

Washington - President Donald Trump pushed back Wednesday against criticism that his administration isn’t doing enough to meet the coronavirus threat, as lawmakers called for giving disease fighters much more money than the $2.5 billion the White House has requested. A day after he sought to minimize fears of the virus spreading widely across the U.S., Trump prepared to hold a White House press conference with experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. He tweeted that the CDC, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar and others in the administration are “doing a great job with respect to Coronavirus!” and accused some news outlets of “panicking markets.”
