Joe Biden: The Unfrozen Caveman Comeback Kid – for 72 Hours

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

He wants to be the president who appoints the first black female to the United States Senate! – That is exactly what Quid Pro Joe Biden told an audience at a rally on Friday, and the rest of the Democrat presidential field is so weak that they voted for him anyway.

So, now America’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator gets to be the Democrats’ Unfrozen Caveman Comeback Kid.  For about 72 hours. By then, most of the results from the Super Tuesday states will have come in, and Crazy Uncle Joe will be right back where he belongs, sucking the wind of The Commie’s campaign.

Even the ardent Biden hacks on CNN’s massive panel of election analysis hackery last night admitted that the prospects ahead for the buffonish ex-Veep are painfully thin: Hey, if he can win a few states – some combination of Arkansas, North Carolina and/or Virginia – on Tuesday, and be competitive enough to pick up delegates in some other states, like Texas and Oklahoma, then he can keep raising a little money and keep his horribly-run campaign on life support for a couple more weeks, until the next raft of big states come up on March 17. That is when the states of Ohio, Illinois, Florida and Arizona hold their primaries.

To his credit, Quid Pro Joe actually seems to be leading in Florida, although the polling data there thus far is very sparse, and the momentum from his big South Carolina win might well help him maintain that position there. We have no information thus far in terms of polls from any of those other states.

But let’s say Biden is actually able to win Florida and maybe one of those other states – one would certainly think he would be competitive in Illinois, for example. In that event, there would be no question that Quid Pro Joe would be able to continue making a fool of himself all the way through the July convention in Milwaukee.

With Steyer dropping out of the race last night [finally], and the Warren, Klobuchar and Buttigieg campaigns now having zero real reason to continue other than the candidates’ own hubris, Mini-Mike becomes the only other meaningful factor in the race from this point forward.

Make no mistake about it: Mr. Excitement is only a factor because he happens to have $62 billion to burn through. Despite having already frittered away half a billion, mostly on paid advertising, Bloomberg still has a net negative favorability rating among Democrat voters, and virtually zero appeal to the black voters who are so crucial to Democrat success. Exit polls from South Carolina yesterday showed Mini-Mike with at 22/66 favorable/unfavorable rating from the heavily-black Democrat voters in that state. That’s about the rating Satan would get from those same voters. He is a horribly unappealing candidate.

The question for Bloomberg now becomes what will he do after he has a terrible showing on Super Tuesday? Because that’s what is going to happen. It is doubtful he will actually win a single one of the 14 states being contested on Tuesday. He will not even be competitive in California, and is likely to finish a distant third in Texas, where the intensity of his advertising has dropped noticeably in the past week.

Bloomberg has repeatedly said that he is willing to spend up to $2 billion of his personal fortune in his effort to prevent President Donald Trump’s re-election. Regular readers here will know that my belief is that he never expected to be able to win the Democrat nomination, but became a “candidate” so that he would receive the preferential advertising rates that candidates are entitled to.

With the DNC essentially broke, Bloomberg serves both as a proxy for the anti-Trump spending the Party would have normally done, and as a stalking horse for Biden or some other “moderate” candidate to challenge The Commie come convention time.

Thus, my bet is that Mini-Mike will continue his “candidacy” through July regardless of his ability to actually attract votes, so that he can keep buying TV ads at the lower, preferential candidate rates.

Preacher Pete, Fauxcahontas and Klobuchar will all end their flagging efforts after failing to do much on Super Tuesday, which means Americans can now look forward to the prospect of having to endure a three-person contest between an outright communist radical, an obviously impaired former vice president, and a tiny billionaire with no prospects of winning anything other than the race to see who can burn through the most money.

That is our life, all the way through July.

 

My updated odds on the ultimate Democrat nominee:

The Commie – 5 to 4

Quid Pro Joe – 2 to 1

Someone not currently in the field – 10 to 1

Mini-Mike – 20 to 1

Klobuchar – 20 to 1 (She’s a potential compromise nominee at a deadlocked convention)

Fauxcahontas – 100 to 1

Preacher Pete – 1,000 to 1

 

That is all.

Joe Biden Fumbles Through the Democrat Playbook in South Carolina

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Another day, another half-filled high school gym. – When President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) goes to a state, any state, to hold a rally, his advance people book the largest local enclosed arena, and he ends up speaking to a packed house of thousands with thousands more standing outside, watching on huge video screens.

When Joe Biden, the runaway leader in Democrat presidential nomination polls, goes to a state, any state, to hold a rally, his advance people ask the friendliest local high school principal to hold open his gymnasium for free, force as many of his kids as possible to be in attendance, and the candidate ends up speaking to a crowd of dozens. Don’t believe me? Here’s Creepy Uncle Joe coming into his South Carolina rally on Saturday:

Note to the intern who runs the Biden Twitter feed:  You’d be a lot better off hiding embarrassing video clips like that one. But please, ignore that advice, because this is fun.

Lots of stuff going on with the Biden campaign, most of it highly predicable, given the age and nature and party of the candidate. The most predictable part is that he’s basing his campaign on the standard Democrat playbook, which is lying and scaring people: Scaring the old folks, scaring the young folks, scaring black folks, scaring the gay folks – scare as many people as you can, because that’s the only way you can convince anybody to vote for a Democrat.

Hell, Biden’s even resorting to scaring working folks, because pretty much everybody is working these days thanks to Trump’s economy. His appeal to working folks is to say, yeah, you’ve got a job, but how is your boss treating you? Like some Democrat president is going to come into office and police all the bosses to be nicer to their employees, or something. It would be hilarious if you didn’t know that, deep down in his heart, he’s actually being serious.

Down in South Carolina, he did what Democrats always do first in that state, which is scare the Black folks. That’s like on Page 3 of the Democrat primary playbook, right after scaring the farmers in Iowa and scaring the communists in New Hampshire.

On Saturday, Biden told that high school gymnasium half-filled with mostly black folks that “You’ve got Jim Crow sneaking back in,” referring to the era of “separate but equal laws that held sway in much of the South prior to the civil rights movement of the ’50s and ’60s. It’s a damnable lie, but hey, he is a Democrat. This is what Democrats do.

A few hours later, speaking to a sparsely-attended fundraising dinner, the 76 year-old Biden slurred his words and referred to the current Prime Minister of Great Britain as “Margaret Thatcher.” Lady Thatcher, of course, left that office in 1990 and passed away in 2013. Biden’s been slurring his words at all of his campaign events, an issue that can be hidden by a friendly fake news media for awhile, but which will become starkly obvious once the televised debates begin.

Perhaps all of this explains why we continue to see more and more reporters complaining about being bullied by Biden’s staff, who are working very hard to prevent their frail, elderly candidate from having to actually answer a few questions from the press. Here’s an example from one of the complaining reporters:

The woman with the pony tail in that video is becoming infamous among the press corps, as she pushes and shoves reporters at every Biden stop to ensure they can’t get close enough for him to hear their questions.

We’ve been through all of this with a frail Democrat candidate before, of course, as we witnessed the Pantsuit Princess’s staff abusing the press corps throughout the 2016 campaign. At one point, the Fainting Felon’s staffers literally strung a rope around the press gaggle to hold them away from their sickly candidate; at another event, they actually locked one reporter in a broom closet to keep him from shouting uncomfortable questions.

Of course, you couldn’t blame them: The Grasping Grifter had all manner of health issues going on and she hasn’t uttered a public word in forty years that wasn’t written for her by someone else. She could never be trusted to take extemporaneous questions in the way President Trump does on an almost daily basis.

The same holds true for Biden. Even as a younger man, Biden was a gaffe-prone circus clown – you literally never knew what might come out of his mouth at any given time. Now that he’s older and his mind is obviously slowing down pretty rapidly (no shame in that – it happens to all of us) he cannot be trusted by his own staff to to field off-the-cuff questions from the press corps.

Biden is simply too old for this job. He just is. Again, there is no shame in that – I have nothing against elderly people and aspire to become one myself in the not-too-distant future. But our country simply cannot afford to have a frail, elderly man whose mind is obviously slipping occupying the Oval Office for four long years.

Biden had his window of opportunity four years ago, when he was still fairly cogent, to seek this office and passed it up under pressure from the Coughing Crook and Barack Obama. That window is now closed, though he hasn’t figured that out quite yet. But as the excitement over his long-delayed entry into this race fades, and the fake news media goes back to keeping its prom dates with Mayor Pete and Kamala Harris, the Democrat voter base will figure it out for him.

Joe Biden’s already had his best polling days in this race. It’s all downhill from here.

That is all.
