Joe Biden Deserves a Major Award
...and No, I'm not talking about a Leg Lamp!
Note to Readers: This is my second post this morning. I realize that two posts back-to-back may overload my readers, but this one is my take on “stuff” currently in the news and I didn’t want to postpone it. (And Yes, the title of this post is an allusion to Jean Shepherd’s “A Christmas Story.”)
Joe Biden Deserves a Major Award
Joe Biden, in the recesses of his demented mind, must have decided that all the nuzzling and hair-sniffing and whispering that had already earned him the sobriquet "Creepy Uncle Joe" weren't quite creepy enough.
What else could account for his remarks the other day, when he said, "How many times have you heard...? I bet everybody knows somebody, somewhere along the line -- in an intimate relationship -- what happened was, the guy takes a revealing picture of his naked friend, or whatever, in a compromising position, and then literally sends blackmail"?
"Everybody" takes in an awful lot of folks. Does everybody really know somebody who has experienced this? I suppose it's probably true, at least for everybody who has Hunter Biden for a son! But, for the rest of us, probably not so much.
(And let's not forget that Joe has described his son Hunter as "the smartest man I know." Just let that sink in for a moment! Yup, receiving an administrative discharge from the Navy after failing a cocaine test, repeatedly photographing oneself cavorting with hookers and doing drugs, and admitting to smoking grated parmesan cheese because it resembled crack — those are the marks of a true genius!)
And now that even the New York Times has confirmed all the "allegations" about the scandalous material on Hunter’s laptop (including the documentation of his father’s shady, corrupt, impeachment-worthy dealings with foreign powers), material previously dismissed as "typical Russian disinformation" (but which, for many of us, was hardly credulity-straining even long before the NYT finally came clean), it makes it all the more puzzling that the elder Biden can still retain such a loyal and ardent fanbase.
I'm speaking of the legions who manage to overlook his many gaffes (despite "gaffe" being entirely too generous and too forgiving a term for many of Joe Biden's gaucheries, improprieties and blunders, such as his deadly and strategically illogical foul-up of America's withdrawal from Afghanistan, for which the terms "debacle" and “fiasco” hardly do justice), let alone turning a blind eye to his treasonous corruption.
I'm speaking of the multitudes who dutifully close ranks to protect him from any criticism, and who eagerly parrot his repertoire of falsities (like his blaming Vladimir Putin, and then corporate greed, for rising fuel prices and inflation in general). I'm speaking of all those who, clapping like seals, gave him such vigorous standing ovations at his State of the Union address.
Given the way Joe Biden is revered by such persons, and in light of the now-confirmed revelations about his son, I have to say that I'm surprised that Joe Biden has not yet been nominated for, and received, the "Father of the Year" or the "Excellence in Parenting" award!
