Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)
You just cannot make this stuff up. – The Democrat toadies at the Washington Post have a new piece out this morning which details growing concern in the Quid Pro Joe camp about their candidate’s obviously advancing cognitive issues. The buffoon who produced 2-3 wtf moments per week on the trail during the first few months of his campaign has recently been giving us 2-3 such brain freezes each day, and that frequency was becoming too much for the corrupt news media to gloss over as mere “gaffes.”
Thanks to the DNC/Media narrative advancing Biden’s “electability,” none of this has really mattered all that much to depraved Democrat voters who have no concern about the good of the country and are only focused on regaining political power. These people would nominate a potato from Idaho if they thought it could beat the evil Orange Man in the White House. Thus, Biden’s handlers find themselves in the enviable position of now working with a significant lead in the race for the nomination, which provides them with a great deal of flexibility on ways to manage the campaign – and the candidate.
Given that flexibility, Quid Pro Joe’s handlers – which obviously includes his wife, Jill – rolled out a nifty new, scaled-down version of his stump speech over the weekend. Biden talks that have been rambling on for 60-90 minutes now last no longer than a typical commercial break on the History Channel, with the text now all carefully read by the candidate from a teleprompter.
From the Washington Post piece:
It is a seismic shift for Biden, 77, who in five decades of political office and three White House runs has never had a reputation for breviloquence. It’s a habit perhaps nurtured in the Senate, which prides itself on limitless debate and has a special term — filibuster — for talking endlessly.
The less Biden strays from his streamlined and teleprompter-ed remarks, the less likely he is to make a gaffe that could damagingly ricochet around the Internet. Even with his shorter speeches, he’s made an unforced error or two. In his Sunday remarks at New Hope Baptist Church (14 minutes), he derided Mississippi’s former governor for not accepting Medicare-for-all — which happens to be Sanders’s chief policy proposal — instead of the Affordable Care Act.
So, which recent presidential candidate does this remind you of? If you said Hillary Clinton, you win the prize, which sadly amounts only to my undying admiration of your prescience.
Yes, friends, the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator has now adopted the “hide the candidate” tactic deployed by the Fainting Felon once it became clear that she had built a clear delegate edge over Bernie Sanders in their race for the 2016 Democrat nomination. With the Coughing Crook, the strategy was all about the fact that Democrat voters liked the idea of Hillary Clinton but really didn’t care much for her as a person. Thus, the less they saw of her, the more popular she became with them.
As the Biden toadies at the Post point out, the strategy for his campaign is all about damage control. The less exposure Quid Pro Joe has before the cameras, the less opportunity for the candidate to say something that will make the public wonder what in the hell is going on with this guy?
The problem with this particular strategy, though, is that it only works through the party convention in July. Once that event has come and gone, it becomes impossible for the party to hide its nominee any longer, even with the willing cooperation of 98% of the nation’s news media.
In the general election, Quid Pro Joe will find himself needing to reach out and gain the support of independent voters who don’t give a damn about his party’s ravenous thirst for political power. At some point in the campaign, there will come a black swan event that causes the reality of Joe Biden to literally leap off the television screen and grab those voters’ attention.
For the Pantsuit Princess, that moment came when she fainted dead away while waiting on her hospital van to whisk her away from the 9/11 event in New York City. Remember, the entirety of the corrupt news media was going to hide that moment from you – it was only thanks to a bystander who captured the moment with his I-Phone that you even knew about it. Try as they might, there are some things that are just beyond the control of any campaign and its supporting media toadies.
Biden stands poised to basically wrap the Democrat nomination up with big wins in Michigan and Missouri today, and more in Ohio, Florida, Illinois and Arizona a week from now, so the “hide the geezer” strategy is almost certain to remain in place for the next four months. The Biden camp and its media supporters hope that the resulting reduction in the frequency of Biden outbursts of gibberish will make us all forget our concerns about his mental state.
That’ll almost certainly work to secure the nomination. After the convention, though, they’ll have to come up with some other ruse. Because, as the Pantsuit Princess proved in 2016, you can’t hide the geezer forever.
That is all.
