Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Breaking News: Something Normal Happened

 

It is said that gaffes occur when a politician accidentally tells the truth, but how does that explain Joe Biden?

Joe Biden’s gaffes are not the normal kind, defined as a politician accidentally telling the truth. That is something the former Vice President doesn’t do — accidentally or otherwise. Most of his gaffes are whoppers, easily debunked but reported as gospel by a fawning press.

But Biden has told the truth twice recently. Once deliberately and once accidentally; the first one about the oil industry.

But Biden’s latest gaffe is the traditional kind – an accidental telling of the truth. That is what we used to know as normal, but in 2020 is a man-bites-dog story.

Is this an early sign that 2020 is almost over?

    Nope, six more years to go in 2020.

    The Democratic Party voter fraud operation gets better ever year. There is a reason they won’t agree to voter ID.

    The Democrats’ excuse for that is their belief that people from ethnic minority groups don’t have driver’s licenses. Not that the Democrats are racist or anything.

    Wasn’t there a proposal to have a voter card? Either way, they have non-driver’s ID cards here in NYC, where they suffice for identification.

    Yes. The only reason anyone would be against a Voter ID requirement is to enable voter fraud, unless they are stupid enough to fall for the disenfranchisement argument.

    Back around 2012 Adam Carolla interviewed Gavin Newsom on this subject, it’s a hilarious listen as Newsom twists himself in knots trying to explain why they can’t get ID with Carolla asking ‘Why ,what’s wrong with them?’ ‘Can Armenians get ID?’ How about Jews?’ Etc

    BastiatJunior: politician accidentally tells the truth

    For brief moments what is truth inside Joe’s brain is a mixup of his past memories. George W. was president once. In general, Joe is a shameless liar. I guess that is his superpower.

    My father was a chronic liar similar to Biden. The issue is that truth is easy, keeping all your different lies ordered is hard. When these types get older it is hard for them to keep their lies straight, by the time they get Biden’s age they may no longer know which things are lies and which things is the truth. When they get a bit confused they tend to reach for the easy lie, the one that is the truth.

    Adam cuts cleanly to the chase in interviews like that. It was epic.

    no wonder there is a lid, almost every time he opens his mouth, another gaffe

    how did he get pushed into this lamentable display of elder abuse?
