Go read my husband Cedric and Wally's joint-post:
They do humor posts. They build them on real events. The real event here is a young woman (18 years old) attends a Joe Biden event and asks him a question about climate control and he insults and demeans her.
Why is he still in the race?
And where's Alyssa Milano? Oh that's right,s he's hosting a fundraiser for the pig.
Let's stop pretending she gives a damn about women because she doesn't.
This is C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
Monday, November 4, 2019. War Hawk Joe Biden continues to struggle, protests continue in Iraq and where is journalist Saba Almahdawi?
Let's note this at the top.
Let's note this at the top.
Where is she? And is this like when Nouri al-Maliki was prime minister, how, in his second term, he began kidnapping and targeting reporters?
We should all be asking where Saba Almahdawy is. Hahdi al-Mahdi was murdered and many of us believe that was on Nouri's orders. We should all be asking, right now, while it matters, were is Saba Almahdawy.
Moving to the US where the race for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination continues. The race continues but with one less candidate.
More of a media creation than an actual sensation, Beto ran because . . . If he had been able to articulate it, he'd still be in the race.
The media cheered him on . . . until he started talking about the wars. Then they went after him -- starting with the 'fact check' provided by THE WASHINGTON POST. They repeatedly undermined him.
After the national support he got from the press when he ran for the Senate, it must have been confusing for him to see the same press turn on him.
War Hawk Joe Biden hasn't dropped out. However, his campaign is still reeling from Friday's revelation that he's polling fourth in Iowa. Fourth.
Alexander Burns (NEW YORK TIMES) reported:
Ms. Warren appears to have solidified her gains in the first voting state while Mr. Buttigieg has climbed quickly to catch up with Mr. Sanders and overtake Mr. Biden, the onetime front-runner. Ms. Warren is drawing support from 22 percent of likely caucusgoers, while Mr. Sanders is at 19 percent, followed by Mr. Buttigieg at 18 percent and Mr. Biden at 17 percent.
The survey is full of alarming signs for Mr. Biden, who entered the race in April at the top of the polls in Iowa and nationally. He is still in the lead in most national polls, but his comparatively weak position in the earliest primary and caucus states now presents a serious threat to his candidacy. And Mr. Biden’s unsteadiness appears to have opened a path in the race for other Democrats closer to the political middle, particularly Mr. Buttigieg.
Natasha Korecki (POLITICO) adds:
Biden’s campaign, meanwhile, has been forced to scale down expectations of his performance here. He has already seen Warren overtake him in the polls and is also battling the grassroots energy behind Sanders.
“You might expect that a frontrunner is going to lose some ground as other candidates become more visible,” said Selzer. “It’s not just that there’s not enough numbers to go around. It’s that he’s not wearing well. It’s the trend, it’s the decline.”
Poor Joe. Turns out "more of the same" is not a rallying cry in an election.
If Biden comes in fourth in Iowa, it's very hard for him to come in first in South Carolina. The argument for Joe is that he's electable. Joe's campaign has been preparing the press for the likely reality that he loses Iowa and then New Hampshire. They're trying to say that doesn't matter because he will win South Carolina. Not likely if he loses Iowa and New Hampshire. The two early losses would force many voters in South Carolina to reconsider the claim that Joe is most electable. That's what's driven and sad and pathetic campaign. It's protected him from his problematic behavior with women, it's protected him from his estranged relationship with the truth. If he loses Iowa and New Hampshire, he's just another failed candidate.
Kyle Balluck (THE HILL) mangles a new poll:
Front-runner Joe Biden’s support held steady in a new poll of the 2020 Democratic presidential race that saw Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg make gains.
The poll from ABC News and The Washington Post released early Sunday found Biden with 27 percent support from Democrats and independents who lean toward the party, unchanged from a similar survey in early September.
Warren, however, gained 4 percentage points, climbing from 17 percent to 21 percent. The results mark a new high in the poll for the senator, ABC News noted.
Buttigieg, who is now at 7 percent, added 3 points since early September.
According to the survey, support for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) was also constant, holding at 19 percent.
So the actual news would be that Elizabeth Warren and Pete Buttigieg increased their numbers, while Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders -- and Bernie Sanders -- remained steady.
Three new national polls: Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders lead Democrats cnn.it/329VdAg
See, even in the headline, CNN gets it accurate while THE HILL tries to treat Pete's distant fourth place as the equivalent of Sanders, Warren and Biden -- all of whom have double digits while Pete remains in the single digits.
This as Joe's gaffes just continue to multiply.
Joe Biden might be the first president primary candidate to s**t his pants on stage.
Many are disputing Collin's claim. Many who were present. But if that's what went out on TV, yes, Joe looks ridiculous. When there was the big mistake at the Academy Awards, I was very clear on what I saw from my seat and very clear that it might have looked different on TV -- I don't know where the cameras were. For those of us present, we saw Warren immediately attempt to call a pause and correct what he rightly saw as an error. Those watching at home may have seen something different due to where the camera focused.
In Iraq, the protests continue.
