Daniel Foster of National Review Online and Greg Corombos of Radio America are still searching for those elusive good martinis. Today, they wonder why Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is suddenly insisting the Senate “can’t fail to pass” gun-related legislation in an effort to stop mass shootings. They also see the news former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper may soon jump from the presidential race to his state’s 2020 U.S. Senate race as bad for both campaigns. And they take a deeper look at the latest Joe Biden stumble on the campaign trail and what it tells us about his bid for the White House.

    What about Joe Biden’s brain damage? Doesnt that matter?

    At the time of Biden’s brush with death in 1988, his wife, Jill Biden, feared that he would never be the same. In a forthcoming autobiography, “Where the Light Enters,” Jill recounts Joe’s doctor telling the family that there was a significant chance he’d have permanent neurological damage, particularly after he suffered a second aneurysm, a condition in which an artery becomes weak and bulges out.

    “Our doctor told us there was a 50-50 chance Joe wouldn’t survive surgery,” she wrote. “He also said that it was even more likely that Joe would have permanent brain damage if he survived. And if any part of his brain would be adversely affected, it would be the area that governed speech.”

    What explains how he was before 1988?

    Well lets face it, he scraped through at the bottom of his class at a lowly ranked law school. I just add it up and conclude that he wasn’t very bright to begin with.

    This is why its especially concerning that a man with limited capacities to begin with, may also be medically impaired.

    Yes, hopefully the glad-handing and back-slapping – while ignoring the hair-sniffing etc – doesn’t get him all the way to the White House.

    It also reminds me of a bit from the TV show ER.

    “What do you call the guy who graduates last in his class from medical school?”

    “Doctor.”
