"Are you taking cocaine or not?"
And I have had enough. Had too much. Can’t take no more for I love me some politics. Always have and thought I always would except something has happened since Donald J. Trump ascended to the highest office in these United States of America.
The media has lost its ever-loving mind.
On the right, craven sycophants fall all over themselves to justify the unjustifiable, or at least unjustifiable according to conservative-ism’s most cherished values. On the left, perpetually triggered adult-children have devolved the entire discourse to “Trump is farts and smells like a butt, according to unnamed sources close to the President.”
It’s asinine and there is nowhere to turn. Fox is a silly circus, CNN has become the National Lampoon. NPR, with its paternal tone and know-it-all dismissiveness, is often worse. The New York Times, Washington Post, NBC, CBS, etc. all laughable.
There is officially nothing to read, listen to, watch… except for an anti-depressive surf-adjacent website that you know and love.
I have more fun, more thoughts provoked, reading the comments here than anywhere which made me think. Let’s chat more.
Like here, there is a major conundrum that has kept me awake at night. Donald J. Trump and his presumptive challenger Joseph R. Biden Jr. are both very old and say wacky things. Trump maybe on purpose. Biden certainly not.
Take this recent interview where he happened to ask if the British-born journalist was a “junkie.”
You’re Biden’s people. There is absolutely no way you let him onto a debate stage, right? How could you?
But how in the world do you get out of it? The first one is scheduled for Sept. 29, a month and a handful of weeks away. Unless his “mental slippage” strategy is of the classic “rope-a-dope” variety, he will get pummeled into oblivion.
So what’s Team Biden’s play here? The bunker strategy can only go on so long.
