Joe Biden, "Tragicomic Caricature"

A new book is out. It’s called Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency. Its authors are Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes. Of course, the title is subject to dispute, but we will ignore that for now. 

To provide a public service here, we will offer some of the book’s most succulent tidbits. Among them, Barack Obama’s characterization of Joe Biden:

The book, which is published by Crown, says Barack Obama refused to support Biden even though he served as his Vice President for eight years because he feared he was a 'tragicomic caricature of an aging politician having his last hurrah.'

It’s a delightful turn of phrase, well worth the price of admission-- to this blog, that is.

Apparently, Biden did not see anything wrong with his public hair-sniffing fetish. That it was a simulated rape did not bother him or any of his feminist supporters:

And it claims Biden was so out of touch he didn't see why his habit of touching women was a problem because he 'didn't think he did anything wrong.'

Until the coronavirus hit the country, Democrats knew how limited Biden was:

They write that Democrats 'weren't willing to take a chance' on anyone who might jeopardize the most important mission: get Trump out of office.

The book says: 'Everything else, he'd (Biden) gotten wrong. He'd run a lousy campaign, flubbed debates, spent so much money on Iowa and New Hampshire that he teetered on the edge of insolvency, lost three straight states to start the primary, and allowed himself to be defined by his frailties.'

But, Biden was the perfect candidate for a pandemic. Hiding out in the basement did not appear to be an effort to keep the candidate from public view. It appeared to be an prudent exercise:

The coronavirus gave Biden a 'justification to lay low' but it played to his advantage as he could wait it out in the basement of his home in Wilmington.

One Trump adviser said: 'They used coronavirus as an excuse to keep him in the basement, and it was smart.

'Biden was able to hide his biggest weakness, which is himself. And he did it with an excuse that sounded responsible.'

Anyway, one hopes that this summary serves the public interest, whatever that may be.

Democrats got what they wanted, and got it good and hard.

I don't envy the writers who must attempt to prop up this aged front-man.
The younger front-man who declined to support the elder's campaign should quit while he's ahead.

"You don't have to do this, Joe".

Oh, but Joe did.

Otherwise the truth would get some air.
Can't have that.
