America is a pathetic nation; a fascist state fueled by the greed, malice, and stupidity of her own people.

@snoopydawg It's worth noting that all of the videos are Biden with his new face. One of the side-effects of general anesthesia is postoperative cognitive decline. It's more prevalent among the elderly, and sometimes it's long-lasting or even permanent. Biden was always kind of flaky, but this is different.

Can't say I have a title for this. It's sad, really. If this Biden guy ends up on a debate stage with Trump, he's going to make Trump look like Churchill.

It would be embarrassing to debate him. Probably the best thing Trump could do it to have pity on him and not actually "debate" him at all. Trump should just let Biden babble on, then state his own position. Don't even answer him. Being the savvy showman, Trump could constantly ask Biden if he can get him some water, or something ... maybe walk over to his podium every few minutes and put his arm around him.

Really hard to believe the Democrats are pushing Biden. It's clear to damn near everyone that he needs to hang it up. Trump doesn't even need to get out of bed to beat him.

Judging by 2016, that would fit in just fine with the plan of the altneoliberalcons. More tax cuts for Paul Pelosi and Richard Blum! (Obama's tax cuts for the wealthy weren't nearly enough.)

IMO, Kerry made Bush look like Churchill during the debates and that was a feat, too. Kerry kept interrupting himself mid-sentence to explain and qualify and re-qualify and then interrupt himself again. I tried to keep track to see if he could ever finish a sentence, but my mind and soul went numb. And then, there was Gore, over-emoting, invading Bush's personal space, moaning and sighing. Geebus. They would have thrown him off the stage in a fifth grade debate. Or class play. Either one.

Most people would have strained under the effort of making little Georgie look like the more intelligible, classier candidate, but Kerry and Gore made it look easy. I don't believe that they were trying to lose, but, wow.

Oh, yeah, a title. (ADD strikes again.)

Sorry, I'm no good at all at things like that, although I love laughing at the good ones. Biden's public melt down is just sad, though, and his groping videos are cringe-making. He so should have quit gracefully at VP.

That he is polling at the top is evidence, I think, of how badly the establishment wants him to be the nominee. Wealth did travel to the most wealthy at a faster rate during the Obama administration than any other time in human history. And, if he loses, he loses to Trump and more tax cuts. Another can't lose for winning, just like Hillary, Obama and Willam Greenspan Clinton.

Bye-done is so bad. He can't open his mouth without sticking his foot in it...and that has been the case for years....perhaps for ever.
