By now Biden’s remark “I’m an old guy! “ is famous. Some say it was a blunder, some compare it to Reagan’s brilliant answer when debating Mondale. “So young and inexperienced.”
But what about the context of the remark? He was saying that because he’s old, his running mate has to be someone prepared to be president at a moment’ notice.
Like: Michelle Obama!
O God. That lady, while possessed of a statuesque figure although not a fraction of Melania Trump’s beauty, is, by all accounts, dumb as cotton. A few years ago I read excerpts from her “thesis” at Princeton. Or rather, I looked at them. You can’t really “read” her turgid prose. Synopsis: being black takes precedence over everything else. (And are you really going to ask me how she got in to Princeton?)
I think she AND the Dem kingmakers know this, actually. In spite of them fact that she’s inexplicably, soooo “beloved” of the people, no one seriously proposed running her for president.
It would be quite a show, were she to debate Pence—but he’d be handicapped by her gender and race.
Much as I’d like to see her exposed as a dunce, I hafta hope, for our dear country’s sake, that Ol’White Joe was just joshin’ with us.
