Bye Bye Biden

Imagine folksy old Joe delivering a stem-winder speech like Trump did at the State of the Union last night. Criminal Justice. Jobs. It was an over the top Oprah-esque reality TV show. You get a scholarship. You get medals. You get a reunion with your military dad.

Pelosi didn’t help matters. She seemed even more petty than our Petulant Adolescent President. Tearing up his speech and such. Plus. The Iowa fiasco showed Biden’s electability to be a myth. So. Bye bye Joe.

Who won the Iowa fiasco?   NYTimes Pick.

Amity Shlaes on Morning Joe recalling many hours spent in Northampton’s Forbes Library researching her new book about former local resident, President Calvin Coolidge. Actress Jane Lynch gleefully gushing to Kelly & Michael about Smith College, where her wife graduated and she received an honorary doctorate, “It’s a training ground for lesbians!” Smith’s P.R. Dept. thrilled.

SOTU watchers remarked Obama’s make-up strangely sallow. He looked whiter than Boehner. Pale showing by Latino GOP. Rubio’s nervous response speech. Ted Cruz bullying senate committee, questioning Hagel’s patriotism.
