Bygone days

I remember Joe Biden used to do this really irritating thing, like a tic. Whenever he was grilling anyone in a hearing, every few seconds he would bare his teeth. It was just a flash. It wasn’t really a smile – it was lopsided and sarcastic looking. He bestowed it like a gift. Once I noticed it, it drove me up a tree.

That’s from the Clarence Thomas hearings. That’s when I first became aware of and learned to loathe Uncle Joe.

Here’s another fine moment. Remember his 1988 run, when someone asked him where he went to law school and how he placed, and he fired back with a nonsensical answer about his IQ. Oh, and that thing about a scholarship was a complete lie. Joe finished near the bottom of his class.

Good times, good times. He’s not like that now, of course. He’s just a shell. Poor old man.

That is Biden’s ‘wry smile’ that goes with his ‘schmoozer’ personality. The guy who always has a joke, slaps your back, cracks wise, life of the party. Fondles your wife or daughter. Everybody loves Joe.

It’s moot. He’s not gonna be there long, if he even gets inaugurated. I’ll lay even money he never gets to the inauguration, K’monahwannalaya Harris will be the guy and Granny Rictus Puhleeze Pelosi becomes second banana.

@p2 — If the Electoral College votes Joey in (God forbid!), then THAT’S the start of danger time for him. The 20th Amendment comes into play: it says that if the pres-elect dies or becomes incapacitated between the EC vote and inauguration, then the VP-elect gets sworn in as president for the full four year term. Harris would then get to nominate her VP subject to House and Senate confirmation.

It’s looking a bit better for President Trump, though. If his legal team can win a couple of their lawsuits, then a re-canvassing will likely give him the actual landslide victory he won.

So…Biden goes…Harris becomes Preznit.

And picks…you know.
Come on, ‘She’ was born to be President.

And think of the raves! An “All Female” White House!

We should always make all our decisions based on the gender of the person being elected or selected.

Best person for the job? That’s a bunch of white patriarchy malarkey. Content of their character? pshaw. The new thinking is right out of Freedonia under Rufus T Firefly.

I’m strictly on the up and up let everyone beware

And I don’t get my share…

I am so convinced you’re right, Durned. I’ve been holding my breath to learn when Hillary steps into the picture.

Hold faith, peeps. It ain’t over yet.

I thought she was going to step in after Biden stepped out. But they actually nominated a walking corpse and are trying to convince people he won.
