Le mots juste

Precision, people. In language, as in all things.

When You Think of Joe Biden Is ‘Swagger’ Really the First Word That Comes to Mind?

Not hardly. Not first, nor last, nor anyplace betwixt. I doubt I could ever GET that sloppy drunk, honestly, even back in my heyday for such things. Not for lack of capacity or will, mind; the spirit(s) is willing, though the flesh be weak. It’s just that there ain’t that much liquor on the entire planet.

We went four years without glossy magazine covers trying to puff up the image of the sitting president. And no magazine ever featured our former first lady, an actual fashion model, either. The Bidens have now graced several, but this may be the most absurd. GQ Hype in the U.K. gave President Biden a fashion spread that is just….gag-worthy. The cover reads “Joe Biden, Swagger-in-Chief!” with a picture of the president LARPing Garth Brooks sitting on the tailgate of a vintage pick-up truck, complete with a few bottles of Budweiser at his side:

This magazine is trying to turn a septuagenarian from Delaware with cognitive issues into a heartthrob. Really? Swagger?

Stagger is a lot more like it. They were closer than you might think, actually; they only flubbed it by the one letter. In a sense, though, this embarrassing rumpswabbery is an entirely fitting thing. The fluffer-girls at GQ stitched up a phony image promoting one of the biggest phonies ever to occupy space actual humans might require for other, more useful purposes. They’re propping up a prop, creating a character for a man bereft of any. You don’t get more fitting than that.

Additionally, there’s GQ Hype itself to consider. I mean, could there possibly BE a magazine more appropriately named? C’MON, MAN!!!

Hope they put Dress-Up Joe into a Spiderman costume next. Or maybe do Gene Simmons, of KISS. I think that would be pretty cool.

As nausea-inducingly cringeworthy as this hype is, just imagine how bad it is going to be once Harris is coronated.

How much worse do you think it can get? Biden will sign any piece of paper pushed across his desk by the puppeteers. Harris is the backup, in case the demented bastard kicks the bucket or slips into full dementia.

HazHap

I was referring to the media hype trying to portray dementia Joe as cool and “swaggering.” Harris can’t be any more of a puppet, but I expect the media to be even more fawning and obsequious about how “glorious” and “historic” her time in the White House will be. Combine that with the inevitable fashion mag covers and gushing about how she is supposedly one of the world’s most beautiful women that is going to occur (if they tried it with the mooch, they will certainly do it with Harris), and it is going to take tedious and revolting to a whole new level.

Barry

Gotcha. So many people have stated and believe that hidenBiden is just a placeholder until they replace him with Kommiela that I assume that’s what you ment by coronation.

That thought might be correct of course. OTOH, I have said from early on, before the SC primary, that dopeyJoe was the chosen one. I don’t know why they* “need” anyone else, unless they just want to rub our faces in “black woman president”, and that because the commie racist bastards think we care about the sex or color of the president.

*they being the corrupt commie cabal of puppeteers running the show. I don’t know with any certainty who they is.

HazHap

We don’t care about the sex or color of the president, but they most certainly do. Keeping their coalition of hate together is difficult enough when they can go full identity politics. Trying to manage their internal divisions whith a white guy at the top — a straight white guy who does not even pretend to be “questioning” his hetero-normativity, no less! — makes it even worse.

Dementia Joe was a compromise for the election, to help fool the rubes that the Democrat party is “moderate” and does not hate all white working people. His usefulness is now over, he has a ton of baggage from decades of corruption, and his mental state is increasingly difficult to conceal. He will not be kept around for long.

The infighting over who gets to become Harris’ veep should be fun to watch. A lot of people seem to think it is automatically Pelosi, but that is not necessarily the case. Anyone can be appointed to that slot, if they can get congressional confirmation. The political horse-trading should be quite a show.

Barry

“Dementia Joe was a compromise…”

Maybe. I can’t definitely say that is wrong.
It is my opinion that he was a compromise , but not as “electable”. The plan to steal the election was already well underway, they were not worried about electability*.
I think old slow corrupt joe was the compromise internally, the one everyone could agree would do what everyone wanted, because he wouldn’t even know what he was doing.

*of course they fucked up, not understanding what the massive turnout for Trump would be, and so we got the middle of the night in your face outright theft.

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards." – Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." — Daniel Webster

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” – Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.” - John Adams

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged." - GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free." - Donald Surber

"The only way to live free is to live unobserved." - Etienne de la Boiete

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid." — Dwight D. Eisenhower

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.” - Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it." - NC Reed, from Parno's Peril
