Why Biden's VP pick is delayed

Scott Adams of Dilbert fame has raised the question no journalist has asked: Will Biden even make it to the election?

How typical of newspapering in the 21st century. The funny pages are smarter than the rest of the paper.

Sports used to be a refuge of sanity, but now sportswriters are all SJW. Most of them are white guys trying to ingratiate themselves among the many black athletes they cover. Sportswriters are to athletes what LeBron James is to Red China, as they all tug their forelocks.

The selection of running mate was supposed to be made for Biden by now.

Its delay is curious.

The plan of course is simple. Nominate Biden, select a black woman for vice president, let the Bernie Bros write the platform, keep Biden in the basement until Election Day, win, and have him resign shortly after the inauguration.

Presto! The First Black Woman President!

Ah, but if Biden cannot make it to November 3rd, Democrats have a major problem. After Obama, America will say no thanks to a black Democrat. And Hillary showed America is not ready for a woman president.

The Democrat pitch is back to normal, which explains Biden. Normal is a white guy president, and it will be for a while because of Obama.

But Democrats don't have a handy-dandy white guy to run. If they did, they would have nominated him instead of a sleazy, demented Biden who was never very bright to begin with.

Gavin Newsom and Andrew Cuomo are waiting it out for 2024 because the reality is no sensible politician wants to take on President Donald John Trump. He is a political wood chipper.

On top of that, the women of color in the Vice Presidential Beauty Contest are not that good.

Liz Peek wrote, "The short list of potential running mates now includes Sen. Kamala Harris, former National Security Adviser Susan Rice, California Congresswoman Karen Bass (who leads the Congressional Black Caucus), Florida Congresswoman Val Demings, and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms."

She got to the heart of the matter.

She wrote, "Biden’s VP candidate must appear ready to be commander in chief. Because 55% of voters think 77-year-old Biden is in the early stages of dementia, many will expect that, if elected, he will not serve out his full term. At the least, he would be a one-term president, meaning that his VP would be the probable candidate running in 2024."

The veep must be presidential. This is no time for another Joe Biden. Democrats had better get a Dick Cheney in there.

The list is a pack of Bidens. Not a Cheney in a carload.

Harris is the only one who comes close, and Tulsi Gabbard nailed her for having "put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana."

It's not the hypocrisy. It is the laughter that voters hate.

Politico noted last week, "When former Sen. Chris Dodd, a member of Joe Biden’s vice presidential search committee, recently asked Kamala Harris about her ambush on Biden in the first Democratic debate, Dodd was stunned by her response.

"'She laughed and said, that’s politics. She had no remorse,' Dodd told a longtime Biden supporter and donor, who relayed the exchange to Politico on condition of anonymity."

Politico said Democrats added Tammy Duckworth to their list. That is not a bad idea

The best bet for Democrats may be a Cuomo-Harris or Newsom-Duckworth ticket. That would require nominating Biden and Cuomo or Newsom, having Biden bow out next month, and selecting a replacement VP nominee.

But that is not my circus, and those are not my monkeys.

  1. America's OK with a woman president...but not a shrieking liberal harridan. A Maggy Thatcher type...yeah, no problem.

    1. There is *zero* chance that the American political field will produce a Mrs Thatcher or a Mrs Meir. Zero. None. Not barely detectable, it does not exist.

      So if you want to point and scream that I'm "not ready" for a woman president, that's fine with me, because for all practical purposes, that's how it shakes out.

    4. Nikki Haley?? Are you nucking futz? That's one I would sit out for sure. She's a slime. Besides our side has the most viable woman candidate in the country, the Gov of SD. She's an unabashed conservative who loves this country. She refused to kow-tow to Fauci and kept her state open. I hope she runs in '24

    5. Just NO on Nikki. Noem has real promise.

    6. As a SC resident, I can attest that Haley did a pretty good job as governor. After she moved on, however, she gave herself a black eye as a knee-jerk Never Trumper. Since then, her political machinations have become ever more suspect. I would listen to what she has to say, but can't say for certain that I would vote for her.

  4. Gee let's see: 32 million out of work, ten million facing eviction, millions more facing foreclosure, 25 million who feel compelled to move from their beloved cities, then next comes mail in voting for the first time, but the market is back up!

    It doesn't matter who the dems run a landslide is coming and they know it. Its why Pelosi enjoys delaying the latest bailout.

    All of that is why its taking so long to choose a VP or Biden replacement; the power struggle behind the scenes must be intense.

  5. If many Democrats really wanted a woman -- of color or otherwise -- they certainly had plenty of chances in the primaries to make that desire known.

    I liked Tulsi, for instance. Marianne Williamson was available. Senator Warren appeared.

    Very few voters took advantage of the opportunities presented to express a priority or preference based on sex.

    If the voters want something different, why does it matter for Biden's selection process?

  6. OK, here’s what’s gonna happen...

    Aug 9 - The twin typhoons cause the Three Gorges to fold like a cheap Chinese stereo (yay mixed metaphors!). The Dragon turns inward to lick its wounds and communicates as much to its Chinese agents, including the DNC and MSM. No funds + no EMP = no remaining “events” for LibCommies to exploit. Now that Hunter’s lost his sugar daddy...

    Aug 13 - Joe Mama collapses at home and is hospitalized.

    Sep 22 - The Dem leadership announces the results of their “fallback” options study, which was done completely in private without any grassroots input whatsoever. Mikey Bloomberg is announced as the new candidate, with Big Mike as Veep (Moochelle O, for those of you in Rio Linda).

    Oct 5 - The first sets of so called “reliable polls” are released, showing Trump up between 10 and 27 points.

    Oct 6 - Big Mike drops out as Veep after hubby Barack suffers a “mild heart attack.”

    Oct 7 - Federal indictments are handed down in L’Affaire Russiagate. Comey, Rice, Brennan, and Clapper are amongst the Usual Suspects.

    Oct 29 - Pete Butt-itch-itch is officially named the new Veep candidate.

    Nov 3 - Even before midnight, Trump is declared the winner. The next morning, the world sees the extent of the victory. 50-0. DC goes to Bloomberg.

    3. I can almost agree with Z on two dates. August 13, Joey collapses. Out he goes. November 3, Trump declared winner. I personally think it will be 46-4. MikeO will not join the sausage fest, but has the tools to be eligible. Joey will not make September.

  7. I don't know if it's possible but, Biden picks Moochelle and wins thanks to her. Biden can't fulfill his duties so he backs out after one month. Moochelle is prez. She picks BO as her V.P. She backs out after a month. Viola!

    1. BO already served his two terms, so he is automatically disqualified. However, if Big Mike is elected, there is nothing to stop him from becoming her ventriloquist.

I had thought that the sasquatch would get the veep nod, but there is a fly in the ointment "The Electors shall meet in their respective States, and vote by Ballot for two Persons, of whom one at least shall not be an Inhabitant of the same State with themselves." As a resident of DC, sasquatch can't run for president or veep.

  15. I don't believe the Dems ever had any intention of running Biden in the general election. I think they were just waiting until it's too late to choose a new candidate by normal procedures, "forcing" the members of the inner party to make the decision without input from the little people. They will then force Biden out and select somebody that is capable of appearing fairly normal and doesn't have a history of promising a socialist utopia to the looney left. I'm hoping that their plan won't work, because any dem who gets in will immediately start implementing the AOC/Omar agenda.

  19. We are overlooking one key element: Absolutely nothing that is going to occur between October 13th and November 3rd will be predictable prior to October 13th, 2020 (said the man who had said in 2019, "On the last day of 2020, you will look around and recognize almost nothing that you knew had been there on January 1st, 2020").

    Trump the Press: Don Surber's take...

    In the order above, what are the copyright years of these three books?

    One would expect an idiot with a reported personal net worth of $218 billion dollars (Bezos) to figure out how to make this obvious. No such luck.

    Thanks!

    *Publishers have been/are so unscrupulous, it is usually impossible and insane to buy new books on-line, and I almost never do.

    The reward for doing so is, quite often, a physically unreadable book, featuring bad paper quality, microscopic type size and almost-zero ink (non-)density.

    Which means even if the quality of the writing is good to superb, the book is unreadable (and trashed upon receipt).

  23. The recurring lockdowns for a not-all-that-deadly virus, the totalitarian nanny-statish forced mask wearing, and the never ending BLM/Antifa temper tantrums should provide all the enthusiasm conservatives need to get out and vote. The only way the left wins is if they can force enough key states to vote by mail and completely rig the entire thing.
