Good morning from my office perched between the two stadiums here in Seattle. It is a Saturday morning, I’m wolfing down an omelet while sharing the news that caught my weary eyes this morning.

I’m pretty much focused on the geriatric, Joe Biden this morning fair or not. Real or not.

Do I think that Joe Biden is dangerously incapacitated and unable to serve another four years as the President of the United States?

I honestly don’t know, and I am sure that ninety-nine point nine nine nine percent of you don’t really know either. And the rest of you are only guessing.

But it really doesn’t matter what we ‘think’ we ‘know’, it’s always going to be the perceptions that will carry the day. Right now, the perception is that Joe Biden is about a step away from dabbling in finger-painting with his dookie. Not a great look for an asshat running for POTUS.

The choice between a criminal and a demented old fart isn’t a choice. The “lesser of two evils” is still evil.

The Headlines:

Dr. Jill Biden; his younger sister, Valerie Biden; and 85-year-old Ted Kaufman, the president’s longtime friend and constant adviser — plus a small band of White House advisers — are the only Biden deciders.

Well, if they need my opinion, they know where to find me.

What they’re saying: James Carville — the “Ragin’ Cajun” who masterminded Bill Clinton’s first presidential campaign in 1992, and now is a frequent TV pundit — will be 80 in October. He told us that if he appeared like Biden did during the debate, he’d want to be pulled off the tube.

“I never thought this was a nifty idea,” Carville said of Biden’s run. He said there are few people the president really listens to: “He doesn’t have advisers. He has employees.”

When we pressed Carville on whether he thinks Biden will be off the ticket by Election Day, he said he thinks so. He invoked a famous quote by the late economist Herb Stein, which Carville paraphrased as: “That which can’t continue … won’t.”

James Carville has been right about one out of ten times lately, but I think this is the one where he is 100 percent on point.

As an ‘older fart’, I’m a physical wreck. Right now I am dealing with a knee that is swollen to the size of a small watermelon, and just stepping up or down is a major pain in … the knee, of course. I’m not quite at the age where I need to be concerned about falling and breaking my hip — But I am sure Joe’s right there. So I am not all that concerned about Jill Biden having to ‘guide’ her husband up and down stairs.

But then, I’m not running for president (believe me, nobody is happier than I am about that) so I don’t have to worry about perceptions.

I don’t know if I am ‘reeling’ or not, but don’t you dare call me a ‘Democrat’.

Rare is the politician who serves in the interest of the nation. Most are so high on themselves that they think the nation can’t get along without them.

I’m here to tell them to get over themselves. Ain’t nobody that fucking important.

I sometimes wonder what it would be like if we went for four years without filling the position of president. We could easily install ChatGPT, with all of it’s ‘hallucinations’ in that position and I think we’d be perfectly okay.

I’m not sure that there are very many ‘Hollywood celebrities’ in Hollywood anymore. Most of your TV series actors are now Canadian.

I’m pretty sure this is probably unrelated:

I know the feeling….

On a much happier note…

I have the second beta of my SQL-Server project running on Razor Pages.

I still have a LOT of work left to do…

That’s it for me today. Have a good one.
