No Minister

Who’s on First? (What’s on second?)

By mid-2020 some people began to speculate that Joe Biden’s wife, Jill Biden, was making a run for the title of Edith Wilson 2.0.

Edith was the wife of Democrat President Woodrow Wilson (1913-1921), an all-round POS who was a hard-core racist and segregationist who also took advantage of WWI to execute his wet dream of a command-and-control USA run by genius technocrats like himself. He also managed to fuck up the peace negotiations and US entry into his dream of The League of Nations, the forerunner of the United Nations.

Luckily he only got about three years to do all this before the GOP won landslide victories in 1920 and reversed almost all of his plans. Good luck also meant his actual efforts were further limited to just two years as the bastard was felled by a stroke in late 1919 that left him severely incapacitated, so much so that he really could not do his job:

“disorders of emotion, impaired impulse control, and defective judgment.”

Dude! I’m getting goosebumps!

Unluckily, Franklin Roosevelt was Wilson’s Secretary of the Navy and in the way of detached, rich men who merely inherit wealth he thought a command-and-control economy was a great idea, although it would take another thirteen years and an economic crisis before he could act on that plan.

Also unluckily it turned out that Edith Wilson was a very competent woman:

Anxious to help the president recover, Tumulty, Grayson, and the First Lady determined what documents the president read and who was allowed to communicate with him. For her influence in the administration, some have described Edith Wilson as “the first female President of the United States.

An accurate observation of that history.

In our time there have been various incidents over the last two years that have steadily reinforced the notion that Joe Biden is just not all there. During his campaign he was kept hidden away as much as possible with frequent “lids” called on activities early in the day to allow him to rest. As President there have been some plaintive public happenings:

“I’d be happy to take questions if that’s what I’m supposed to do, Nance. Whatever you want me to do,”

The live video feed on that was abruptly cut – and that was just questions from Democrat House members.

There have been countless occasions where he’s not even been able to read the teleprompter properly, mangling what he was supposed to say, to things like Jill literally cutting in over the “President” as he stumbled in answering a question about border detention centres.

But it was this photo, an official one from the Whitehouse, that really set people talking. Even in her wildest fever dreams of ambition and tone deaf political skills, Hillary Clinton would never have let a photo like this get out, and Bill’s staff would have doubled down on that.

That’s the President’s chair on Air Force One. I’ve no doubt she has to prep for the G7 given all the nap time the President needs. She’s never far from his side and all that studying shows as she does the speech to the troops and with her “Joe! Pay attention” command keeps the President from being distracted by hot-looking 12 year olds in the audience (“Looks like she’s 19”). Ewwww, but remember folks: “disorders of emotion, impaired impulse control, and defective judgment” emerge not just from stroke victims but senile old men.

Still, I’ll bet the MSM will be all over this, as they would be with any GOP president.

Oh! Right.

To be fair I can see how the Jill Biden thing could be argued as not being a story.

First of all, does anyone really think that Joe Biden, a man who in the prime of his life had all the intellectual power of a root vegetable, is really running things?

Second, it’s not just Jill running him but his Chief of Staff, Ron Klain, plus other members of his team, likely the advisors more than his Cabinet. The COS is a key figure in any Administration and Klain is a connected, savvy guy. We’re basically looking at President Klain.

Somehow I feel comforted knowing that Jill Biden and Klain are on the job.

Of course there are still people who worship the MSM. These are people who are often surprised by real life.

It is correct you moron, and it’s going to get worse. It must in order to deal with the Climate Change Crisis Emergency. But you’ll always have, NO MEAN TWEETS.

Incidentally the title of this post comes from one of the most famous comedy sketches, courtesy of Abbot and Costello, because laughter is the best medicine.

  1. Dr Jill Biden does at least have an official role, unlike Princess Ivanka who was let run amok at the G20 and and Little Rocket Man meetings, nepotism at its finest.

    Teresa May “As soon as you charge them with that economic aspect of it, a lot of people start listening who otherwise wouldn’t listen.”

    Princess Ivanka “And the same with the defence side of it, in terms of the whole business that’s been, sort of, male-dominated.”

    Easy to tell who the adult in the room was.

    • Hey Little Dipshit, Jill Biden has no official role. Ivanka did have an official role as an employee of the .Whitehouse administration. It is all entirely legitimate, flagrant nepotism and all.

      Will you ever get anything right?

  2. Are you really going to try on a pissing contest between Theresa May and Ivanka Trump? May was possibly Britain’s worst and most incompetent Prime Minister since Ted Heath. Her premiership ended in utter failure. Ivanka has been a roaring success by comparison.

    And Doctor Biden does not have any official role at all. The First Lady is not a Federal office, any more than what Ivanka did.

      “Little Dorrit” has no counter arguments, so in the true tradition of trolling shit posters it’s simply thrown whatever it can against the wall.
