Gabby Biden’s 911 Stream of Dementia

Filed under: Politics — cpirrong @ 5:47 pm

Apparently not wanting to risk Joe Biden breaking his own record for Worst Presidential Speech on as solemn an occasion as the 20th anniversary of 911, his handlers decided that he would not give formal live remarks in New York, the Pentagon, or Pennsylvania. Instead, they decided to unleash the allegedly avuncular Gabby Biden, who responded to some questions in Shanksville.

The question that started this verbal train wreck, this word succotash, was the most dangerous that Biden could have faced:

Q    Mr. President, what is going through your mind today, sir?

Dear God in heaven, anything but that.

Biden responded by saying exactly what was going through his mind. Which is to say, he unleashed a stream of dementia (I would never say consciousness) that veered between something that had at least some connection to 911 (though that (a) ended up being all about him, and (b) sounded like Fractured Fairy Tales as written by Hunter on crack), to his alleged attempts to unite the country, including a foray into his domestic agenda–“human infrastructure”–to a defense of his decision to withdraw from Afghanistan, to (amazingly) a defense of how we got out of Afghanistan (there was no other way to get out), to a slap at Trump (who apparently lives in his head, granted there is a lot of empty room).

The man said “anyway” SEVEN TIMES. This is a common verbal tick of someone (usually elderly) whose mind wanders, and subconsciously knows his/her mind has wandered. Like Grandpa Simpson:

“You see, back in those days, rich men would ride around in zeppelins, dropping coins on people. And one day, I seen J. D. Rockefeller flyin’ by– so I run out of the house with a big washtub, and—Anyway, about my washtub. I just used it that morning to wash my turkey, which in those days was known as a “walking bird”. We’d always have walking bird on Thanksgiving with all the trimmings: cranberries, Injun eyes, yams stuffed with gunpowder. Then we’d all watch football, which in those days was called “baseball.”

So, anyway, I’m going to do my thing.    

That last was Joe Biden, not Grandpa Simpson. And Judas Priest. “I’m going to do my thing.” That’s exactly what we’re petrified about. We’ve seen the thing. And we’re afraid. Very afraid.

Really. You have to read the whole thing to get the full effect.

Apparently Gabby’s puppeteers have never heard the aphorism: “Better to remain silent and be thought an idiot, rather than to speak and remove all doubt.”

If you had any doubt, you shouldn’t now. And if you do, I have no doubts about your mental state.

Not only was this Journey Into Joe’s Mind disturbingly revealing about his lack of a functioning mind, it was wildly inappropriate for an extremely somber occasion like yesterday’s remembrance of a shattering episode in American history. It had nothing to do with him, his political agenda, or his performance as president. But this makes it plain: narcissism will win out. Always.

Why do I call him Gabby? Reading his remarks reminded me of Blazing Saddles, and Gabby Johnson’s genuine frontier gibberish.

There were other awful moments from yesterday. Like Biden giving a shoutout to someone at Ground Zero–while Obama looked on in horror.

Insert “WTF Joe” word bubble over Obama’s head.

Or when Biden geriatrically shuffled over to someone pointed out to him by security, and the crowd heckled him–including saying “don’t sniff ’em”–a reference to Creepy Joe’s predilection for inappropriate gropes and sniffs of underaged girls (though not just girls)

This on a day where raucous college football crowds around the country (for the second consecutive weekend) erupted into “Fuck Joe Biden” chants:

This is not sustainable. The problem is that the alternatives are as bad or worse. Look at the line of succession. Kamala. Pelosi. Leahy.

We are truly putting Adam Smith to the test. Yes, there is much ruin in a country. But not infinite ruin.

  1. “Mr. President, what is going through your mind today, sir?”

    How odd that “they” had not drafted a reply for this rather obvious question. Or maybe they had and he couldn’t remember even the thrust of it. Or maybe they have given up drafting anything that makes demands on his short-term memory.

    P.S. Have a care, Prof: I’m rather fond of “anyway”myself.

  2. Thoughts cross his mind because there’s nothing there to stop them.

  3. To have the gibbering old fool visit three different sites in one day was surely an unwise decision, unless it’s part of the preparation for getting rid of him.

    On a different tack: I do hope Trump’s life is properly protected. I can imagine that ‘they’ might try to assassinate him.

  6. Joe was the quintessential “generic D”. He beat Trump. Or, at least, it appears he beat Trump. If he committed fraud to do it, we have yet to prove it. Sort of like OJ Simpson. He killed his wife, but you can’t prove it in court.

  7. I can remember a British politician saying on TV that everybody knew two things about the OJ Simpson case. (i) He did it. (ii) He’ll get off.

    I suppose that sums up the Biden victory.

  8. “The notion that might somehow be an objective commentator on Putin’s Russia is perhaps the most laughably absurd statement that can be made about that benighted country”.(с)
    This barbaric country (“benighted country”) – Russia – has opened Space to mankind. It was the “Russian barbarians” who smashed the entire fascist Europe and hoisted their flag on the defeated Reichstag. “True Aryans” shamefully and cowardly surrendered.

  9. So Craig, how has the EU’s insistence on ditching long term natural gas supply contracts pegged to the price of oil been working out for ‘em lately?
