Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, April 09, 2019

Joe Biden has become problematic. Yes, him too. In a convergence of the tribalistic crazy that has infected our politics, the former vice president has managed to find himself a target of hungry, outraged opportunists across the spectrum who have had just about enough of his hair sniffing. Defenders of an unapologetic serial sexual assaulter, and the pussy-grabber-in-chief himself, spent last week gleefully pretending that they thought Biden was the real creep. And certain socialist-curious Democrats were quick to call the Cancel Cops, obviously hoping that the fallout would knock Biden off his perch atop the Democratic primary polls. But here's the thing about these critics, left and right: Vanishingly few of them seem to sincerely believe that Biden's enthusiastic shoulder rubbing would inhibit him from being a successful president.

Their real complaints with him are along much different vectors: That he is a "neoliberal capitalist" (the Bernie bros); or that there are women or people of color who are better options (intersectional progressives); or that he's a liberal who needs to be owned (Trump supporters).

Maybe we don't need to turn everything into kabuki theater.

If you want to oppose Joe Biden because he's too centrist, or too socialist, or too old school for your taste -- that's fine.

But let's stop trying to turn Joe Biden into something he isn't and show a little grace. He deserves better. But more importantly, so does our politics.

I agree 100%.

But the Dems seem hell bent on keeping the grenade between their teeth and throwing the pin, so there is that.

The world doesn't appreciate a hands-on guy anymore. Oh, and one that also sniffs your hair and gives you angel kisses on the top of your head, either. (shuuddderr!)

I agree Gal, he should have gone for higher class women. When you're in the Illuminati (or trying to get in it) nothing is really too creepy.

I think it's wrong to feel that women are adorable and enjoy their sensual presence. Rape is a crime of violence.

He is a creepy plagiarist who has used his government position to enrich his family. No he doesn't deserve better.

Biden's Bankruptcy Bill gift to student debtors convinces me he doesn't deserve the presidency. The entire cast of mentally antiquated cretins need to be removed.
