Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
The Creepy Plagiarist strikes again. Joe Biden’s biggest problem…well, ok, his biggest problem is that he can’t keep his hands off of women and children in inappropriate ways…Joe Biden’s second biggest problem is that his mind has always been an empty vessel waiting to be filled by the ideas of others.
The simple fact of the matter is that Joe Biden has precious few original thoughts, and the few he does have invariably end up blurting out of his gaping mouth at inconvenient moments. Like the time he said that all 7/11 stores are run by immigrants from India. Or the time he said that Barack Obama was a rare clean and articulate black guy. Or all the times he took the wrong position on every foreign policy issue of the last 45 years.
So it’s always been safer for our nation’s creepy uncle to ignore his own impulses and latch onto the ideas of others. It is no accident that Biden’s crowning achievement in life has been spending 8 long years parroting talking points handed to him by Barack Obama’s evil minions.
The trouble is that this reality of his natural state of being has repeatedly landed him in trouble over accusations of plagiarism. Who could ever forget the incident that caused him to have to abandon his first presidential run in 1987, when he didn’t just steal a phrase or two from another person – he stole an entire speech from British Labor Party leader Neil Kinnock?
Just last week, Biden released a “climate” plan – which is really nothing more than a multi-trillion dollar set of handouts to Democrat special interests – that contained multiple instances of plagiarism that were so blatant that even the leftwing media felt obligated to report on them. But hey, were it not for the “climate” plans of others, Biden would have had no “climate” plan at all.
It’s the story of his entire political career.
Yesterday in Iowa, Creepy Uncle Joe resorted to plagiarizing the lowest of the low in our society, Creepy Porn Lawyer Michael Avenatti. He and his staff are apparently incapable of coming up with a decent campaign slogan of their own, so they just ripped off the slogan Avenatti trafficked during his hundreds of appearances on CNN and MSNBC last year:
“He says, ‘let’s make America great again,’” Biden said of Trump, “Let’s make America America again.”
Clever, right? Yeah, but that’s how you know it was stolen from somebody else. Biden never says anything clever or eloquent or original on his own. Come to think of it, neither does the Creepy Porn Lawyer, so he must have stolen from someone else in the first place.
On the same day that he plagiarized the sleaziest man in America, our Creepy Uncle also reversed yet another major foreign policy position. It seems that Biden has suddenly figured out that China is an adversary to our country after all. What a revelation!
Just a couple of weeks ago, Biden – whose son has became fabulously wealthy trading with China in sweetheart deals arranged by his dad during the Obama years – had this to say about the ChiComs:
“China is going to eat our lunch? Come on, man. I mean, you know, they’re not bad folks, folks. But guess what? They’re not, th-th-th-th-th-th-they’re not competition for us.”
But on Tuesday, Sleepy Joe had woken up to the reality that maybe a nation of 1.2 billion people that has been stealing our intellectual property, engaged in a massive military buildup and robbing us blind in international trade for the last 40 years might be competition after all. Here’s what he said in his second Iowa speech:
“We need to get tough with China. China poses a serious challenge to us, and in some areas a real threat.”
Oh. Wonder who poured that line into his empty vessel of a mind? You can be sure someone did, because that is just who Joe Biden is.
That is all.
