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.
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.
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.
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.
“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.
