Wag the Dog

 

In wrapping up the worst week of Biden’s Titanic-like voyage into infamy, the White House offered that Joe wasn’t making a “human” comparison by labeling all Republicans 21st century Bull Connors; he was using a historical comparison to… history or something.

Jen Psaki said:

“I think everybody listening to that speech who’s speaking on the level, as my mother would say, would note that he was not comparing them as humans, he was comparing the choice to those figures in history and where they’re going to position themselves as they determine whether they’re going to support the fundamental right to vote or not,”

It’s not on a Kamala Harris-level of nonsense. Kamala Harris murder words like no other. But Psaki’s effort today was a solid effort. Her problem remains that she’s constantly cleaning up after Joe soils his shorts.

This week concludes with:

  • Screaming “racists!!” didn’t work.
  • J6 fell off the map.
  • Sinema and Manchin threw wrenches into Biden’s face.
  • The Supreme Court stomped on his mandate, and his poll numbers show him racing COVID for unpopularity.

So, what next to expect? A shiny object. Something to distract. Ukraine, maybe?

Wag the Dog.
