Biden may — if he can remember that — regret that advice.
What with Gropin’ Joe and Senator Kneepads both publicly referring to the “Harris administration,” and Biden’s clear mental deterioration, I’ve speculated that the Dems — with it being far too late to replace Biden on the ballots — plan to elect Biden, then as soon as practical use the 25th Amendment to remove him and install Harris as President. But this morning it occurred to me that the Dems have a second barrel.
Given the Cokehunter Biden email dump and the trove of documents from his unclaimed laptops, it’s also pretty damned clear that Daddy has a little corruption problem. Sure, the Dems and their media pets are ignoring it, or calling it Russian disinformation when they can’t ignore it, but it’s there.
Unlike the conspiracy theories about Trump and the Russians, the Hunter Biden story is backed up with documents that third parties are confirming as real. And differing from the “Trump called the military suckers,” backed only with anonymous claims countered by public nonanonymous people saying it isn’t true, the people confirming the Biden emails (and text messages) are doing so publicly. So why are the Dems ignoring it?
Again, it’s too late to replace Biden on the ballots. They have to try to elect him even though he’s a major liability. But Joe handed them a double-barrel shotgun.
The first barrel is the 25th Amendment.
But if Joe changes what’s left of his mind and tries to fight that, Harris et al can suddenly “discover” the Hunter/China/Russia/Burisma corruption scandal is real. Then they can make Joe an offer: Joe, let us 25A you, and go into a quiet retirement, well-funded by your son’s antics, or we support impeachment. You’ll be impeached, you’ll be convicted in the Senate, and then you’ll be indicted by a federal grand jury. Given the evidence your son abandoned — unencrypted, for fuck’s sake — at the computer shop, you’ll be convicted on that. Your retirement to Club Fed will be less lavish, even in a minimum security country club facility.
Or they could offer Biden the chance to patriotically resign, and cut a quiet deal with prosecutors.

Good & bad news;
The good news is he ain’t gonna win, bad news is they won’t accept his losing.
I’m less sure of that. Back when that moron Abrams ran for GA governor, a judge did order that absentee ballots from people who didn’t know their birthdate, how to spell the name, and whose signature did not resemble the one on file had to be counted, as did provisional ballots from people showing up at the wrong polling stations… in the wrong COUNTY. (That woman bragged ahead of the election that her voting bloc included legal and illegal noncitizens.
We’re going to see a lot more of that this time around.
And it begins…
Second barrel, indeed. I figured back in March that the the only…ahem… rational purpose for actually going forward with something as insane as a Biden candidacy, was as a setup for eventual replacement with the Party’s real choice, to be made entirely aside from the nuisance of public involvement. My primary mistake was in presuming the replacement would happen at the convention, rather than after “election” via 25A.
QED not so, but it still seems like the obvious play, doesn’t it? It’s a thing of at least some wonder, when you regularly realize that your big miss wasn’t so much being outright wrong, as that you just weren’t quite cynical enough. (Boy, has this been a year for that.)
Whatever happens on this particular forthcoming National Public Shenanigans Day, ol’ Gropin’ Joe, and chip-off-the-old-block Hunter, made their bed long ago, and now get to sleep in it.
Mike Vanderboegh used to love to quote Zappa for observations like this, so: hey, Joe:
Do you love it?
Do you hate it?
There it is,
The way you made it.
