Kos himself on Biden

Never thought I would comment on a post by Markos but he calls Biden a sack of sh**

I go to TOP/GOS to get a sense of the establishment dems who seem to be all out for Biden so was a shock to see

But Biden is stuck in 1992 (or even earlier!): From his love of Dick Cheney, to his unrepentant opposition to school busing during desegregation, to unfunny jokes about creeping on women, he’s a creature out of touch with the modern zeitgeist.

So are we really to believe that two days ago, he was so supportive of the Hyde Amendment that he had to issue a correction when he accidentally said he opposed it, and yet today, merely 48 hours later, he’s legitimately opposed to it?

Sometimes people change because they truly do evolve. Sometimes they can “change” publicly because the world is a safer place for them to do so. And sometimes, they do so because it’s the politically expedient thing.

It’s obvious which one currently applies to Biden.

Joe Biden’s abortion flip isn’t just flip-flopping—it’s craven politics at its worst

I imagine that his cred relies on supporting a woman again, preferably a WOC.

Five Democratic senators, including the party’s deputy leader in the chamber and two leading presidential candidates, introduced a resolution decrying any Israeli plan to annex West Bank territory, an apparent shot across the bow at Benjamin Netanyahu’s recent election pledge.

“Unilateral annexation of portions of the West Bank would jeopardize prospects for a two-state solution, harm Israel’s relationship with its Arab neighbors, threaten Israel’s Jewish and democratic identity, and undermine Israel’s security,” says the non-binding resolution introduced Thursday.

It says the “the policy of the United States should be to preserve conditions conducive to a negotiated two4 state solution.”

The resolution was introduced by Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Wash., joined by Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, the deputy minority leader, Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill. and Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.

Too much money (and too few places to invest it)

Though I am still missing the point of some of these, they are good for a Friday chuckle or two or ….
