Back in 1979 one of the greatest movies ever made shot the bolt on what Joe Biden has morphed into today. The real tragedy is that the movie basically ‘flopped’ at the box office, simply because of its purely satirical embrace of a complete idiot being proffered for United States president. At the very least, a sop for becoming an ‘adviser’ to the rich and famous. Basically, you have/had to have been a Brit to fully understand and comprehend the plot.
As the plot line put it at the time: Based on Jerzy Kosinski’s satirical novel about an illiterate gardener who has lived his entire life behind the walls of a Washington, D.C., house, his only knowledge of the world coming from the TV programs he watches. When his employer and protector dies, he is catapulted into the fast lane of political power.
After all, back then British comedy was all the rage with ‘That Was the Week that Was’; ‘The Goon Show’; ‘Monty Python’s Flying Circus’; ta da, ta da, ta da… and Peter Sellers was one of the creative genius’s who was all in on it; the Pink Panther series being his pièce de résistance. Tragically for we his followers, Sellers succumbed to a heart attack in 1980 at the young age of 54.
But back to Biden.
On a broader front and putting all comedy aside, the people who saw in Joe Biden the US Cavalry rushing in to save the fort are themselves afflicted by cognitive dissonance. You don’t put Mr. Magoo into the pilot’s seat and expect the plane to fly safely.
Joe Biden and the Dems have learned nothing from Russia, Mueller and Impeachment; living under the illusion that voters will go for anyone – just anyone who isn’t Trump and who will surf on the #44 luster despite being a defective bill of goods. Which also informs how little they think of voters’ intelligence.
It really needs to be – ought to be – Bye, bye, Joe.

The 2020 presidential election on November 3 will not come down to which candidate has the better ideas, or who is more likable. The election will be decided depending on just how well the press will be able to hide Joe Biden’s cognitive disabilities.
A brief, seven-minute speech shows just what a challenge that’s going to be.
Fox News: During the brief address, Biden, 77, bizarrely described himself as an “O’Biden Bama” Democrat and went on to declare: “If you want a nominee who will bring this party together, who will run a progressive, positive campaign, and turn, turn this primary from a campaign that’s about negative attacks into one that’s about what we’re for — because we cannot get — re-elect — we cannot win this re-election — excuse me. We can only re-elect Donald Trump — if, in fact, we get engaged in this circular firing squad here. Gotta be a positive campaign, so join us.”
The muddled remarks led to renewed concerns from Republicans and left-of-center commentators that Biden may be mentally unfit for the presidency. On Twitter, President Trump jokingly took Biden’s speech as a mangled endorsement.
Face it folks, as Rick Moran expresses on his closer: Joe Biden is a man in decline; declining in physical and mental ability. There’s no shame in this. It will happen to us all. What makes electing Joe Biden such a tremendous crapshoot, though, is that the loss of cognitive abilities in individuals is unpredictable. We don’t have a detailed psychological report so if he is suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, we don’t know.
And there’s no telling even if he isn’t suffering from disease how slowly or how quickly the normal aging process will take its toll to the point that he may become a danger to the republic.
Can you imagine this guy in a one hour debate with Trump? The president is no spring chicken but appears to have suffered little if any, loss of cognitive function. Biden can’t go 5 minutes without tripping over his own thoughts.[end]
Joe Biden is the most electable of the Democrats, is clearly senile, and he’s all they’ve got. Think about that for awhile.
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – President Donald J. Trump – his entire wits about him – winning! Winning! Winning! MAGA! KAG!
