May I Have the Envelope Please?

I don’t know about you, but I’m getting increasingly frustrated with the “OH MY GOD I NEVER REALIZED JOE BIDEN IS OLD WE MUST DOOOOOOO SOMETHING ABOUT IT RIGHT! NOW!” narrative in the so called mainstream media and the pundit class is yelling from the rooftops.

Some of you (maybe about 150 million) seem to be unaware we have what is called a “Primary Election” that is held in different states, roughly from the end of January till the late spring. At this time, you could vote for other people who chose to run. Dean Phillips (who?) and the failed scion of the Kennedy clan ran and mostly finished behind “no voice” or “uncommitted”. Pretty far below, if I remember correctly.

Look. I don’t know if Biden is going to make it through 4 years. That’s why there is a Vice President and we have a good one. Apparently there is a faction that just noticed she is a multi racial woman, a fact they seemed to ignore while there was no chance she would actually become president if something happened to Biden. Maybe all the viable alternates didn’t run because they knew it would be a cluster*ck and maybe hand the election to TFG.

To be clear I will vote for a box of donuts if it is running as the head of the Democratic ticket, but I’m happy to vote for Handsome Joe if he is indeed the one running. He must feel like he’s under a million microscopes right now. If there is a fight at the convention, it won’t be exciting (at least not in a good way) and it won’t be fun. It will only make us weaker and lead some people to stay home and not vote at all.

And that is what Felon 45 and his ilk wants.

Meanwhile, maybe by this time next week we’ll know who FFF (Felon Forty Five, get it?) is bringing to the prom.

I’m staying as far away from the election food fight as I can.

A Small Request

I really had no idea what she was up to.

We can’t rely on Pinky and her magical wand to get us out of this.

The one thing we don’t want is for the “Biden steps down — Democrats lose” to become a self fulfilling prophecy. It would be good to let your Senators and House rep know your opinion on this. Feel free to use or modify my text shown below, that I am sending to my representatives today. You can call their offices if you’d like, but most offices have a contact form you can use. Let’s flood our reps with the opinion that the most important thing is to defeat Trump and stave off Project 2025 and the Trump dictatorship.

This is most useful if you have Democratic Party reps, but it wouldn’t be amiss to send to Republican representatives as well.  You can copy and paste my text if you’d like.

Message to Senators/ Representative:

I believe that President Biden is the most capable person to decide whether or not he has the will and the energy to see this election through. He has been an excellent president, passing many initiatives that benefit a wide swath of the American people.

I believe him when he says he has the stamina to both run and defeat the former president. He has an excellent Vice President in Kamala Harris, as well as a very capable cabinet. He has more he would like to accomplish on our behalf and I think that constantly questioning whether that is the case is harmful to our prospects in November.

One bad debate should not be the beginning of the end for the American experiment. The former president at the most benign interpretation would bring in a regressive era with the loss of many rights and personal autonomy.

I believe President Biden is the best president I have seen in the 12 presidents of my lifetime. Please stand by him and let him finish the job.
