This word salad from Joe Biden is positively Trumpian in its incoherence:

Joe Biden Gets Wistful About Some Very Polite Segregationists (NOT The Onion!)

Quote

Addressing a crowd at a fundraiser in New York, Biden spoke about his belief in  unity and bipartisanship. And showing his incredible political acumen, he decided to illustrate his point by sharing just how well he got along with two of the Senate’s biggest defenders of white supremacy during the 1960s and 70s, fellow Democrats James Eastland of Mississippi and Herman Talmadge of Georgia.

 

Let's see what James Eastland said during the Civil Rights Era:

Joe Biden’s Segregationist Nostalgia Is Even More Ignorant Than It Sounds

Quote

At first blush, Biden’s segregationist riff is disturbing. When you poke below the surface, gets even more disturbing. It suggests that he has not grasped any of the tectonic changes in American politics, and that he is equipped neither for the campaign nor the presidency.

 

Quote

For another, by citing segregationists, he is revealing the very reason the bipartisanship he longs for can’t return. The era of bipartisanship was built on suppressing racial conflict. The white South could only be cajoled into a coalition that supported bigger government by preventing African Americans from voting and, at times, outright denying them the benefits of government altogether. He’s invoking the most unappealing aspect of the bipartisanship era. You can argue that forging American consensus was worth the cost of suppressing racial conflict, but actually highlighting the grotesque moral costs of that era is a bizarre way to advertise it.

Maybe we'll have two candidates in the general election sun downing?

Yeah Biden is pretty bad. I really hope he continues to slide (to Warren's benefit). The greatest risk is that Sanders and Warren split the progressive vote, and that Biden slides in to victory.

He is also on the rise. Personally I am hoping for a Warren-Buttigieg ticket. Can you imagine Pence having to debate a gay?

People are still on the Buttigieg train at this point? My mind can always change but a lot is stacked against him. The debates will be interesting.

While he's right, no one gives a shit what Cory Booker thinks.

It's not so much what PharmaBro Booker thinks, but rather that Biden blew off his advisors.

Oh, no, I'm glad you posted it, I agree. I just think it's funny out of the candidates that tweet thought to tell us what Cory Booker thought first was all, presumably because he's black. :p

You gotta admit, being VP to a black guy is all the cover he's ever gonna need. It's ridiculous. People also forget Obama is half-white too. Trust me, that matters to some racists.

 

Edited: Added "some" for clarity.

One drop rule, bruh. There is a whole subset of racists who find race mixing to be the highest of offenses.

I agree, I should have been more clear - that it matters to them in their President that at least he wasn't full black - and of course many racists still didn't care, I just meant some do make that distinction, and either way (whether Obama is half black or whatever) should not work as cover for Joe Biden.

I know that there has been stuff before this but I think Joe's remarks and the reaction to them are the official bell that the fight is underway.

He could have retired off that shit and rode that good will into his grave. But no. He had to fuck it up.

Progressives pounced on the remarks, and two other White House hopefuls criticized the 76-year-old Democratic presidential poll leader over his comments at a fundraiser Tuesday night. But more than a half-dozen CBC members argued that Biden’s remarks were taken out of context and that the former senator’s call for decency is needed now more than ever.

“I worked with Strom Thurmond all my life,” House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.), the highest-ranking African American in Congress, said of the infamous segregationist senator. “You don’t have to agree with people to work with them.”

I kinda/sorta get where the CBC is coming from.  However, this is about Joe Biden's sense of judgment...or demonstrated lack thereof.

 

There are dozens, if not hundreds, of political adversaries Biden could have used to make his point, but he went with the one who literally advocated African-American genocide.

Ugh, the more stuff comes out, the more I hope Biden gets taken down in the debates and then the primaries. I went from being just unenthusiastic to downright, "fuck you, Joe."

Dems are gonna fuck this up, aren't they?

 

 

Edit -

 

I think Warren/Pete is the right answer.

 

She's got actual policy ideas, she's a "firebrand" or whatever and will hit back at Trump's schoolyard shit, she's obviously passionate, they're both articulate, he's a veteran, she's a woman, he's gay, one's old, the other's young, etc. etc. Neither one should give the sense that we're being force-fed another tired, careerist politician (Biden). Biden's gonna look like a doddering old man with a checkered past, and will once again only garner the support of people who were gonna vote (D) no matter what. He's not gonna inspire anyone to vote for the first time or switch from Republican to Democrat. With regard to voting outcomes, I think he'd be a lot like Clinton.

I certainly hope that all of those who have given "armchair analyses" of The Imbecile's mental state have the guts to do the same for Biden because right now I'm not seeing a whole helluva lot of difference.
