The doctor is in

Jill Biden has a Doctor of Education degree from the University of Delaware, and she never lets the American people forget it. Mrs. Biden, wife of former Vice President Joe Biden, insists on being referred to as “Dr.” Biden. Her Twitter handle is @DrBiden. The press has largely acquiesced: Even though it has persistent trouble referring to actual pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson as “Dr.” Ben Carson, it is rare indeed to ever see a reference to Jill Biden without “Dr.” preceding her name. There’s nothing wrong with being proud of one’s educational achievements, of course. But Mrs. Biden’s unrelenting insistence on being called “Dr.” sometimes leads to confusion.

The harridan, Jill Biden, has been acting more like a "Witch Doctor" than a person deserving of the respect she demands!

This is why celebrities should shut up about politics. They’re not that smart and they clap like seals at the dimwit woke mentality like there is no other perspective. Whoopi obviously knows nothing about Jill Biden except she’s a ‘great doctor’. Poster child for rankly ignorant koolaid drinkers.

Whoopi exposed her ignorance to me about 30 years ago when she did an HBO special and started it by singing the National Anthem with MFer interspersed between every couple of words. She hasn’t improved over the years.

This is a great example of how stupid it is to take people who flap their jaws for a living seriously. Like any other air head she hadn't a clue about Jill Biden's qualifications yet there she was on the grand stage of television making crap up. She simply presumed Dr. meant medical Dr., an idiot move, but then heading off to the races making up that she's a great Dr.. And it's the fools like Woopsie who have our children believing that capitalism is incinerating the planet and that we can "tax the rich" (above the 37% the 1% already pay) without impacting the economy resulting in less money to hand over to people who didn't earn it.

I suspect she is a full in participant in the scam that the DNC is setting up right now using Biden. She wants to be FLOTUS in the worst possible way, and she will sacrifice her own husband's dignity and health to make it so. Being a 'Doctor' of education just means she is more liberal than Biden himself is. Probably more thuggish as well.

Having spent 14 years in a university setting, I laugh at the insistence of those holding the Doctor of Philosophy in Education being called Dr. So And So. Reminds me of the old joke where someone not familiar with an academic degree at a cocktail party being introduced to Dr. Whoever. then pointing to their shoulder complaining of a pain. The Ed.D then quipped, ''Disrobe now, and I'll take a look.''

Most doctors of education aren't PhD but rather EdD. My husband who is a PhD in physics but works as a defense contractor after retiring as a Col in USAF doesn't use either title when he introduces himself. He just uses his first name or first and last name. He finds people like Jill Biden pretentious.

College professors don’t normally use “doctor” other than when on campus or doing something work-related. Lawyers earn a J.D. degree from law school, “juris doctor,” or doctor of laws, yet in America no one ever calls them doctor. Police officers call lawyers “counselor,” yet almost no one else does. It’s just another example of libs who believe they’re smarter than everyone else.

Back in the day when there were real journalistic standards (eons ago, when I was a journalism student), we were taught that the only doctor to be referred to in print as a doctor was the take-two-aspirin-and-call-me-in-the-morning type. All else was academic pretension, relegated to academia and not to be legitimized by self-respecting publications.

The stupidity of these high paid people in the media is breathtaking. They can't do simple math; they can't think and they can't even get right something as simple as what Mrs. Biden is a doctor of. Sheesh. If I was Miss Whoopie I would be so embarrassed I would have to take a month off from being in the public eye. She probably is one of those people who won't drink Corona beer for fear of getting the virus. And yet, there she is with her multi-million dollar salary telling we rubes what we should think, eat and believe. I am so disgusted and sick of these people. They really, really need to get their comeuppance.

"I have no regrets; I'm a very grateful person," twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton says toward the end of Hillary, the new Hulu documentary series about her life. Like many of her public statements over the years, especially those requiring a modicum of self-reflection, it's not very convincing. The average viewer will understand by then, if they've managed to suffer through the full four-hour running time, what Hillary wishes she could say in front of the camera: "I don't deserve this; I've done nothing wrong."

It is a testament to how fringe and unacceptable racism has become in America today — the worst thing you can accuse a politician of is racism. Lying is perfectly acceptable. Flip-flopping is the norm. Failure to keep promises is a given. You will even be forgiven for molesting the intern in the Oval Office. But racism? It is the Scarlet Letter. It was the Scarlet Letter that former Vice President Joseph R. Biden wore just a few months ago. And, no, we are not talking about the time Mr. Biden marveled aloud a few years back about how “clean” then-Sen. Barack Obama was.

The media have been afflicted with a raging case of Katrina virus. There's no known cure for the self-inflicted disease as long as a Republican occupies the White House, but political experts say the Katrina virus will instantly reverse course if a Democrat ascends to the nation's highest office. As you may be aware, "Katrina moment" is to disasters is what Watergate is to corruption. Anything can be a Katrina moment if you add enough sizzle from the media. The "Katrina moment" never quite stuck to any number of President Obama's missteps from Benghazi to the H1N1 outbreak.

It’s not hard to understand why Elizabeth Warren will not be the Democratic presidential nominee. Unless, that is, you’re one of her most zealous fans, in which case getting to the bottom of her departure from the race requires careful scrutiny of the apparent sexism lurking beneath the crust of American culture — a practice that her defenders have been engaged in since her campaign began. Never mind that, if misogyny of any kind is responsible for Warren’s demise, it is that of Democratic primary voters, who overwhelmingly chose the senator’s opponents, including in her home state of Massachusetts, where she, a second-term senator, came in a distant third place.

Everyone remembers how Starbucks responded to allegations of systemic racism by closing down for a whole day of penance (which meant company-wide sensitivity training) followed by the decision that they would open all their locations—and most especially their bathrooms—to anyone without requiring a product purchase. In other words, it was the equivalent of putting out signs saying, “Loitering Welcome Here.” As they say on the Interwebs, you’ll never guess what happened next! Actually, you don’t need to guess, but in case you’re curious, we have some social science on the question, in the form of a paper from two researchers at Boston College and one at the University of Texas,

It’s clear that the Democrats see the coronavirus outbreak as an opportunity rather than an epidemic. Having failed to bring down President Trump with ridiculous conspiracy theories involving Russia and Ukraine, they are desperately attempting to convince the public he is somehow exacerbating the COVID-19 crisis. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, for example, issued a joint press release Sunday that included the following fiction: “President Trump continues to manufacture needless chaos within his administration and it is hampering the government’s response to the coronavirus outbreak.” Predictably, Pelosi and Schumer fail to provide any objective facts to support this claim.

The stars were out in force on Saturday Night Live last night — Daniel Craig, the Weeknd and, er, Elizabeth Ann Warren. After a grueling and failed presidential campaign, the senator from Massachusetts showed viewers her more likable side. She even made a couple of jokes at her own expense. She proved, perhaps, that she is a much better presidential candidate when she isn’t actually running for president. But even when light, Warren is strangely heavy. Her joke about her refusal to endorse Sanders or Biden was unnecessarily bitter: ‘maybe I’ll pull a New York Times and endorse them both,’ she quipped,

The coronavirus outbreak that's spread to at least 25 states now means that Costco customers can say goodbye to free food samples while shopping, according to media reports. "Due to the outbreak of coronavirus, there are no food product samples," a Costco representative in Nashville, Tennessee, told NBC's Today. Costco's decision comes after Trader Joe's changed how its employees distribute food samples to customers, according to an internal memo leaked on Thursday. The memo tells employees to plate samples for customers individually instead of keeping pre-plated samples on a platter, according to Business Insider.

Now that the politics have settled, it’s the right time to return to impeachment, examine it, and learn why it failed. It was only the third such trial in our history. In one of its final reports, the New York Times, while calling the acquittal of Trump a “resounding victory” for the president, added, “both sides agreed that the final judgment on Mr. Trump will be rendered by voters when they cast ballots in just nine months.” Conventional wisdom holds that Senate Republicans were predetermined to acquit Trump of any charges. While there’s a hint of truth to this conventional wisdom, it’s not the entire story. Impeachments,  Staff note. *

Don’t panic, but do be afraid enough to be very, very cautious. The novel coronavirus epidemic almost certainly will get a lot worse before it ever gets “contained.” That’s my key takeaway from an interview Monday evening with John M. Barry, author of the definitive work, The Great Influenza, on the flu pandemic that began in 1918. Barry’s research is so well-respected that he was appointed to the federal government’s official Board of Experts on Infectious Disease, and he now serves on the faculty of the Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine.
