        Got some big Faygo Moon Mist/Fresca energy going on…

        Like, you might get it by the 3L at a corner store, or a 12 pack from Costco, but it’s still the same thing.

        At least the Faygo drinkers don’t hide that theyre clowns.

    Joe Biden doesn’t need to be perfect in order to protect American democracy.

    If you want someone to replace him, I implore you to reconsider your position and support ranked choice voting.

        When it comes to vigorously campaigning instead of acting like a half-dead pushover, yes, I do want Biden to act more like Trump!

        (Frankly, at this point I also want him use the new power granted by the Presidential immunity decision to ruthlessly eliminate the offending Supreme Court judges the same way Trump would not hesitate to do, but in that case the motivations for such an act would need to be entirely different.)

          Unfortunately the best he could do was a case of self tan that fell off a truck in NJ…

      I don’t WANT someone to replace him (speaking as a matter of electoral calculus from a blank slate), but things may be too far in motion to recover from.

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    NEW YORK (AP) — He’s calling in to his favorite morning cable news show, bashing the “elites” of his party and dismissing unfavorable polls.

    Trump has weathered a seemingly never-ending list of controversies, from the Access Hollywood tape that threatened to derail his candidacy weeks before the 2016 election, to his two impeachments, four indictments and conviction on 34 felony charges for falsifying business records.

    Many congressional Democrats, worried about his prospects and their own in November, have declined to give him a full vote of confidence, including former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in an interview Wednesday.

    She argues that Biden, in trying to hold onto the nomination, is “employing Trump-like tactics” with combative responses, cable news call-ins, pressure on lawmakers and an ‘I alone can fix it’ attitude.

    This week began with Biden calling in to “Morning Joe,” a favorite cable news show, where he railed against his naysayers and insisted he will be his party’s nominee.

    He dared those who doubt him to challenge him at the convention and dismissed those who have called for him to step aside as out of touch with rank-and-file voters, despite recent polling that shows widespread concerns about his age.

      Pelosi the insider trader has no right to criticize the man who stood with the working class by being the first sitting us president to join the picket line. She has no shame.

        If we’re using actions of his administration, how about calling him the man that could have single handedly stopped a genocide but didn’t?

        Or the man that followed through on Trump trying to destroy journalism?

    “I’m getting so frustrated … by the elites in the party,” he said, mocking, in a sing-song voice, the assumption that “they know so much more.”

    I thought he was just lying, but with Clooney coming out I think a lot of the big names may be trying to get him to drop privately, and will start going public as they give up.

    Then again, he really is acting more and more like trump every day. So maybe he’s just rambling?
