If the world is still in chaos and the economy in turmoil when the election rolls around it’ll likely be a Biden presidency. He’d bascially be the feel-good figure-head. And. Despite whom he picks for Veep, there could be an all hands on deck scenario reinstating an array of the old guard to provide continuity and calm.
Chief of Staff- Barack
Communications Director- Michelle
Secretary of State- Hillary
Treasury Secretary- Steve Rattner
U.N. Ambassador- John Kerry
NSA- Susan Rice
Consumer Affairs- Lizzie Warren
Attorney General- Kamala Harris
HHS- Amy Klobuchar
Veterans Affairs- Pete Buttigieg
Well maybe not exactly. But. You get the idea.
Just in time for St. Joseph’s Day tomorrow. Joe Biden has cemented the Dem nom. Desperation to defeat Trump and the need for an avuncular hug during these scary times have elevated him to saintly status.
Will there be a convention? Will Bernie bro’s go for unity or keep up the fight? It all pales compared to more isolation and bad news.
However, the only thing Joey3Sticks and family are mourning is the loss of Tom Terrific from the Pats to the Tampa Bay Bucs. Oh the pain!
Joey3’s cat Brady is so upset he has taken to hitting the bottle and announced he’s moving to Tampa. Buh bye!
Biden won big in the South Carolina primary. As media foments coronavirus panic-demic to trash Trump, it is resonating more than Russia or Ukraine-gate. If markets continue to tank and there’s a recession before the election, this could take him down.
It won’t be Joe and his energy & charisma. He looks pretty sleepy on Sunday shows. Hillary-esque. Bernie at least fills arenas. Even if Mayor Mike does well on Super Tuesday, we’re left with all old white guys. SAD.
mAd prediction. Biden-Klobuchar. Yawn.
(Joe-mentum coined during Joe Leiberman presidential campaign)
Last night’s Dem Debate was an unmitigated unmoderated mess.
Nobody knocked Bernie out. He was rattled, but stood tall. Lizzie got her long-awaited revenge against Mayor Mike for backing her rival Scott Brown in the Massachusetts Senate race. Mike himself went from an F to a D- . Bloom is off that rose. The rest of the field cross-talked and yelled a lot. Pundits are saying it was Biden’s best night. If that was a best night, Trump’s got it made in the shade.

Results of the Fracas in Vegas.
Still standing. Pete. Lizzie. Bernie.
No major cuts. Joe.
Democrat Debate Night again. This time on the Las Vegas strip. NBC moderators. They hate Bernie according to Vanity Fair. So will the questions to him be fair? Can Amy & Lizzie come out swinging? Will Joe rope-a-dope? Will Mayor Pete join Mayor Mike on the box?
Do or die for Bloomberg as he joins the fray. All punches will be going his way. Can he take the incoming with confidence and sharp jabs?
Fingers crossed while swigging a Big Gulp.
Friday Night Lights. Democrat Debate. No Break Outs. No Break Downs. If there was a winner, it was Amy Klobuchar.
Joe took to yelling as a substitute for articulation or passion. Mayor Pete loses on the race trope. Lizzie Warren has an annoying voice. That’s just the truth. Bernie was strong with the exception of his guns argument. Steyer made the best points about defeating Trump.
Mike Bloomberg looks better every day. Pragmatic. Centrist. Strong.
No. Not tennis. Australian Open is over. However. Democrats are making so many unforced errors it is hard to keep track.
Iowa couldn’t conduct a caucus. If somebody got in a car and counted the bingo cards in every church in the state, it wouldn’t take this long. Confidence in elections and government-run things takes a huge hit.
To make matters worse, DNC’s dunce chair Tom Perez asks for a recanvass. Great. Prolong the agony of a horrible story. Biden then can call the whole thing a farce. And sorry again, Bernie. You lose even though you won. Pete and Mike used the fiasco to their own ends.
Hillary tells Ellen she would never say never to VP and seems never to leave the limelight. And. Back to Joe. He spent the better part of an hour on CNN talking about stuttering and cancer. Don’t forget Lizzie. Her Nevada staff is calling foul over her toxic workplace.
Would seem so easy to beat Trump. But. Nope. Can’t make it up.
Last Dem Debate before Iowa Caucuses.
Will Lizzie Warren bait Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden. That’ll be her Ber Den. As they go after each other Mayor Pete can parry from his deck chair. Amy may be lured into the fray with too much tension on the line. Steyer will haul in plastic bottles and scream about climate change. Yang rushes in to clang the bell as AI bots take over the ship.
Wolf sporadically yells over the horn. This is Breaking News!!!!!
Fifth Democrat Debate.
Mayor Pete got his test. Tulsi took him on. He rallied. But. Did not close the deal. So. Against Trump? Joe waffled but didn’t pass out in a puddle. Tom Steyer got too much time. Kamala fakes accent. Amy shaky but funny. Elizabeth too dependent on Fed Gov’t to solve the country’s ills. Yang refreshing. Booker black-ish. Bernie consistent.
Bottom line. Nobody elicited excitement. Pretty boring.
