While Mr. Biden has made no decision about his future, people familiar with his thinking say, he hasn't ruled out a bid for the White House. If he runs, that could set up a titanic battle between two of the party's most prominent figures.Leave aside, for the nonce, the curious phrase, “people familiar with his thinking”, which bears the same semblance to reality as, say, people who are familiar with the method of changing lead into gold, or with the digestives process of the Loch Ness Monster (and as to the notion of a “titanic” clash, I leave it to you to figure out which candidate would be the iceberg, and which the doomed ship). The Biden candidacy speculation smells a lot like a false flag operation by Hillary Clinton’s team to obscure the rapidly spreading perception that she is approaching the nomination more in the character of heiress to the throne than in the spirit of a mere competitor for elective office – a perception that, even in the current celebrity environment of American politics, could still redound to her disadvantage.
And, to return to the intellectual deficiencies of Joe Biden, I wouldn’t be in the least surprised to learn that he’s unwittingly playing along, convinced, in the amusement park that is his mind, that he’s got the stuff to shine in the shooting gallery and take home the giant stuffed panda. Sorry, Joe, but you’re likely to find out that those rifles don’t shoot any truer than their counterparts in the real world.
Update: Steve Skubinna, in the comments - "Joe Biden, dumber than a sack of hammers, will be the perfect final president of the USA. He'll punch the button to nuke Omaha while trying to dial Domino's for pizza."
