Ok, so it looks like there is a new, big pile of evidence that Joe Biden is corrupt, and has been for years. Biden and his family are all Democrats, so I don’t think anyone expects any of them to go to prison. The question is, will this affect the election in a couple of weeks? I can’t believe that any Democrat or Republican voter had previously thought that perhaps Joe Biden was not corrupt. But perhaps this latest pile of evidence makes that open secret more difficult to ignore. I guess. But we’ve been ignoring even worse behavior by this guy for years. So honestly, how could this new evidence change anyone’s opinion of him?
So I don’t think it will change the election, because I don’t think anybody is voting for Joe Biden (or Kamala Harris, if they’re honest). I think some people are voting for Donald Trump, and others are voting against Donald Trump. But nobody is voting for Joe Biden. Trump is a big personality – you love him or you hate him. Biden is, well, the other guy. Whatever. So I think Biden will win about half the vote, like other Democrats. And I can’t imagine anything that could possibly change that. What do you think? Will this corruption scandal have any impact on the upcoming election?
One last thought. Let’s presume that Biden wins about half the vote. Ok.
Now, try to imagine who the Democrats could possibly nominate who would not get about half the vote. Who on earth would that person be? Heck – that paragon of virtue, achievement, and personal warmth named Hillary Clinton won about half the vote!
Who could do worse? Maybe Harvey Weinstein with Vladimir Putin for Veep? I really think even he would win at least 45 percent. The Democrat nominee will win about half the vote. Every time.
It doesn’t matter what Joe Biden did.
In my opinion. What do you think?Published in
