Biden Not Helping His Case With Continual Gaffes

Bernie Sanders should not be the Democrat party nominee. It is extraordinarily dangerous to have an elderly communist, who never met a dictator he couldn’t praise, within one vote of being President of the United States. That means the Democrats’ only viable alternative is Joe Biden.

The problem is, Biden is not exactly inspiring confidence while he attempts to mount a comeback in South Carolina. This state has long been considered Biden’s “firewall,” but even it looked to be in jeopardy until the media suddenly discovered Bernie’s love of Castro’s Cuban literacy programs. With that sudden awakening by the media, plus Bernie’s shameless double-down while Democrats panicked, Joe Biden picked up the important South Carolina endorsement of House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, who had already signaled that Bernie was not a palatable choice for him.

Leaving aside Biden’s supposed conversations with dead Chinese dictators and thinking he is running for the Senate, he committed a fairly big boo-boo that even the media couldn’t dig him out of. Recently, Biden had started telling a story about how he was arrested in South Africa while trying to see Nelson Mandela in the late 1970’s.

The problem was that no one had ever heard of this story before… and it got debunked fairly quickly by Biden’s own campaign. *cringe*

Biden “was separated from the [Congressional Black Caucus] members he was traveling with at the airport,” campaign spokeswoman Kate Bedingfield told reporters on Feb. 25. “Biden was separated from a congressional delegation in South Africa and was referring to that.”

“When he landed, he was not allowed to go through the same door as the rest of the party he was with,” she said. “Obviously, this was apartheid South Africa. There was a white door. There was a black door. He did not want to go through the white door and have the rest of the party go to the black door. He was separated.”

Whoops. And then the campaign had to go straighten old Grandpa Joe with his embellished memories out. But even after all of that, the media still tried to let the senile old man down gently.

So now we’re just back to our regularly scheduled programming of gaffes, instead of the big outright lies.

This is the choice that Democrats have left themselves. They either have to choose the dangerous old communist with a heart condition that he doesn’t want to talk about anymore, or the doddering old man who isn’t sure where he is, what he is doing, and keeps reliving his glory days of standing by Barack Obama’s side. No other candidate is viable enough to make a run on these two. Heck of a choice, there, Democrats.

South Carolina is sure to be a whole lot of fun tomorrow.

    I’ll go on record as saying the Bern or Bribem will neither be the Democrat candidate. Could be the charisma-free mini-Mike which in a way would be a good thing: It will prove that money cannot buy an election if the candidate is unpalatable.

  • My prediction: no one will collect enough delegates to win the nomination on the first ballot, even if the Dems have to cheat to make that happen. The super delegates will not vote for Comrade Sanders on the subsequent ballots, so he’s out. Of the remaining candidates, Joe Biden has the best shot *if* he can keep himself from falling apart mentally, but that’s looking like a challenge for him. If he folds, it’s up for grabs. But the Dems will *not* let Sanders take their party from them; he’d bring along the whole “Justice Democrats” crew. The Democrat establishment is not interested in being purged.

    If it turns out I’m wrong about this, I will refund every penny.

  • Skeptic says:

    Here’s a scenario I think could happen:

    Sanders goes into the convention with a plurality, but not a majority, of the delegates.  Biden, despite having all the mental acuity of a plate of baked ziti and continuing to campaign for everything from Senate to Prime Minister, is close.  The convention goes to the second ballot, and at this point the superdelegates kick in, having no desire to nominate the old commie.  But who?

    Warren is ridiculous and a fraud.

    Mayor Petey is a homo, and there’s no way the blacks will vote for a fag.

    Klobuchar is boring, not well known, and has baggage with mistreating her staff.

    And Biden, by convention time, can barely recognize himself in a mirror.

    So – they sell the party to Bloomberg.  The Dems are damn near broke, and Bloomer can fix that.  So – a billion into the Presidential campaign, a billion into the Congressional and Senatorial races, a billion into their piggy bank, and probably several million to many of the muckety-mucks in power and the superdelegates.  Bloomberg “wins” the nomination on the second or third ballot.

    The Bernie Bros lose their collective shit – not that they’re far from that anyway.  Their rich old guy has just been fucked over by a far richer old guy.  Milwaukee burns.

    Bernie runs as an Independent – or maybe as a Socialist, stripping off all his supporters from the D’s.  Why not?  He won’t win, but he’s an ideologue and it’s his last shot to run for President.  If he loved the Dems, he’d be one.  Bloomberg gets massacred in the debates by Trump, and despite running ads every 30 seconds on every network, gets clobbered in November.

    Yeah – it’s written with a tiny tongue in cheek tone, but I can see every bit of it happening.  The biggest doomsday scenario to me is what Bloomberg’s money will do in the down-ballot races for the D’s.

    • GWB says:

      Thing is, if Bernie were to go 3rd-party and split the Dem vote, it’s entirely possible Trump would have a 47- or 48-state landslide.

      And, personally, I think you’re being insulting to ziti, a working-class pasta that keeps it together under pressure.

  • GWB says:

    but even it looked to be in jeopardy until the media suddenly discovered Bernie’s love of Castro’s Cuban literacy programs.
    Which they had been touting just before they needed to smash Bernie. (OK, as recently as 2017 when they were bashing Trump for re-closing the route to Cuba.)

    asks JoeBiden about lying several times
    This is one where I’ll invoke Hanlon’s Razor. Is it more likely Joe is lying or is just so damn addled he’s living in fantasy memories? I can definitely see the latter.
    (” OK, Shirley, since this your first family get-together here, a couple of things to keep in mind. Don’t get between Bubba and the last beer, don’t mention Nancy’s immobile face, and about UNcle Joe…. Don’t believe a word he says, and don’t let him get inside an arm’s length.”)

    No other candidate is viable enough to make a run on these two.
    Not sure I agree. But the party establishment has deemed it is so, and will work toward that end.

    2020 general election is gonna be LIT!
    (Is there an equivalent of throwing in the towel in an election?)
