Maybe It’s Time to Let Joe Biden Go Home
I’m beginning to feel sorry for Joe Biden. It became quite obvious that when the Democrat field of unhinged socialists, squealing derp potatoes, and social justice zealots began expanding like my ass after a trip to a buffet in Vegas, the left needed to bring out someone who appeared semi-sane in comparison, so they trotted out poor Joe Biden as a counterbalance to the field of nut jobs.
Unfortunately, things aren’t quite working out for the Democrats in that regard.
Joe Biden has proven to be a barely coherent gaffe machine that has provided endless hours of social and verbal blunders much to the right’s amusement, but now I am beginning to feel some sympathy for the guy, because – although I’m not a medical professional, and won’t try to diagnose him a la Brit Hume – I don’t think Biden is altogether there.
First, there were the creeptastic moments of handsiness, showing Uncle Joe’s utter lack of self awareness as he groped his way right through the personal space of multiple women. Now, whether the multiple accusations of inappropriate touching and hair sniffing and kissing are true or not, we still don’t know, but even die-hard lefties were ooged out by Joe Biden’s history of gropiness.
I had an uncle who had an unhealthy obsession with women’s chests, and who once tried to shove his hand down my shirt when I was 14. You know what I did? I very loudly called him a “CHILD MOLESTER” to his wife and told her never to allow him near me again if she insisted on remaining married to him.
That did not turn out well, but back to Creepy Uncle Joe.
Gropegate seems to have died down some, but the septuagenarian seems to have developed some serious cognitive impairments as he blunders his way through the primaries.
Biden has always been known for waxing awkward at the most inopportune times, but it seems like the weirdness has gotten worse as the primary campaign progresses – from his inaccurate claim about the decade in which Martin Luther King, Jr. and JFK were assassinated, to his claim that “poor kids are just as bright and talented as white kids,” to his flip-flop on abortion funding, probably resulting from nutjobs in the Democrat party pulling the guy further left.
In the latest bout of WTF, Biden mistakenly thought he was in Vermont during a campaign stop in New Hampshire.
Don’t you think it’s time for the Democrats to just let Joe Biden be? Maybe it’s time to allow the man to retire and live out the rest of his days with dignity, rather than trot him out for political opportunity as a counterweight to the bat guano harpies that have infested the Democratic field of presidential contenders, three of whom have finally realized just how pointless their bid was and withdrew from the race.
But Biden keeps going. And despite some handlers and allies suggesting that Joe Biden’s public appearances should be limited to avoid further embarrassment to the Democratic front runner, they just keep trotting the poor guy out, allowing him to embarrass himself at nearly every public appearance.
It may be that the far left actually wants Joe Biden to continue his humiliating bloopers. After all, it seems that despite his history as a moderate Democrat, he is easily manipulated and pulled further left by the progressives. So if he continues to poll higher than the other Democrats in the field, they at least have a mentally weak someone whom they can easily maneuver. If his awkward mistakes finally lead to his political demise, the Democrats can point to the very “competent” and “stable” Warren and Harris as more palatable in comparison.
Whatever the reason, I really wish they would just let the guy retire. He’s going to be nearly 77 years old by the time the 2020 election rolls around, and if he’s already losing his faculties, I can’t imagine what would happen during the general election.
a) Trump will wipe the floor with him, because Joe Biden is just not quick enough mentally to keep up with the insults or even smart enough to counter the jibes with actual substance;
b) He might not physically tolerate the rigors of the campaign. Remember Hillary Clinton, who is several years younger than Biden, and who was in her 60s during the 2016 presidential campaign, had some physical troubles, despite the desperate attempts of her handlers to hide the problems.
Just leave Joe Biden alone. Let the guy go home and enjoy what’s left of his life. The presidential campaign is not for him.
