Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because the Campaign Never Ends)
Doesn’t anyone actually care enough about this obviously impaired man to stage an intervention?
Joe Biden told an audience on Friday that his son was once the Attorney General of the United States;
Before the same puny audience, he confused the 2010 mid-term elections with the 2016 presidential contest;
On Saturday, he claimed to have been arrested in South Africa while visiting Nelson Mandela at some point in the 1970s, an incident none of his traveling companions remember and that was not reported in the news media, mainly because it never happened;
Also on Saturday, he forgot which state he was in. Again;
On Monday, he claimed to have negotiated the Paris Climate Accords with Deng Xiaoping. The problem there is that Deng has been dead since 1997;
Later on Monday, things really came to a head:
“My name’s Joe Biden, I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States senate—if you like what you see, help out, if not, vote for the other Biden”

This is a very serious question: Does Quid Pro Joe, former Senator and ex-VEEP, have literally nobody left in his life who cares enough about him as a human being to stage an intervention? Look, it’s been kind of entertaining to poke fun at Biden’s serial gaffes over the years – he’s always been the political version of a walking, talking circus clown.
But at this point, the man has become so obviously impaired that it has begun to verge on blatant cruelty for his family and staff to keep running him out there to embarrass himself day after day on the campaign trail. His past debate performances have been just as bad, with the candidate rambling on and on in a way that nobody really understands what he’s even trying to say most of the time. And tonight, we can expect another cringe-worthy performance.
It’s also been tons of fun to make fun of the paltry audiences that show up for his “rallies”, if one can accurately call them that. Here’s the “crowd” that showed up at his South Carolina event on Monday:
There’s, what, maybe 120 people in that photo, half of whom are either press or campaign staffers. Meanwhile, The Commie was drawing a crowd of 12,000 in the People’s Republic of Austin, the last remaining socialist sanctuary in my home state of Texas.
Yet, for all of his serial buffoonery, increasingly obvious impairment and lack of star-power, America’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator has shown an odd staying power in this race. Yes, his status as “front-runner” is now long gone, but the man did manage to finish in an admittedly-weak second place in Nevada on Saturday despite his horrifically poor showings in Iowa and New Hampshire. And he is somehow still managing to cling to his stubborn polling lead in South Carolina, a lead that has actually increased in the most recent polls.
If he is able to hold off The Commie and win in the Palmetto State, and pick off a big Super Tuesday state or two (he is polling close to The Commie in Texas and a few other states), he might well be able to start raising some actual money again and stay in the race all the way to the convention.
The question becomes, though, is that outcome, one in which his staff and wife continue to roll him out there to embarrass himself day after day after day, really in his best interest as a human being? Sadly for Quid Pro Joe, no one around him seems to care.
That is all.
