    Surely the Dems will replace him as the nominee. His clearly not well.

  2. mh

    He’s convinced me.

    Convinced me to put some more on Trump. $$$

  3. Karabar

    I’m ashamed to admit that I laughed.
    It’s not funny. Poor old bastard belongs somewhere that people can care for him.

  4. H B Bear

    Is he going to make it to the Election Day?

  5. pete m

    Lol “when you think about it”
    You realise how dumb the folks are who keep pushing him out on stage
    And no q/a session

  6. calli

    Making the case for immediate replacement.

    Some “October Surprise”. Will it be Comma-La* or will they parachute in another wymmynses?

    * have to laugh. Sounds like a TeleTubbie

  7. feelthebern

    Where’s my pudding !

  8. Penguinite

    Bet we’ll never see him in an OP Nursing home. Leastwise not in Melbourne!

  9. Matt

    It’s sad to see someone in cognitive decline. I’m guessing if he wins he will then retire in favour of Harris.

  10. Scott Osmond

    Harris is the real candidate. Even her own party didn’t want her. Biden won’t show up for the debates. Excuses will be made and the media will once again carry water for the DemoncRats. Everyone in clown world will be shocked and horrified when Trump is re-elected.

  11. I mean, think about it; here’s the thing, aw, c’mon, man.

  12. Captain Bastard

    He has been looking intermittently “puffy” for the last year. I wonder if he actually has a brain tumour and they are dosing him up with steroids to alleviate the worst of the symptoms for short periods when he has to be seen in public. If so then (as you would expect) then it is becoming less and less effective.

    Elder abuse.

    Agreed

  14. Walter Plinge

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Biden doesn’t mysteriously come down with the China flu about debate time. How convenient.

    Is America ready for Kamala?

  16. mem

    Is America ready for Kamala?

    Only if you don’t believe a word she says publicly. But will it matter as the Democrats seem to go from one lie to another anyway?

  17. areff

    Harris is around 68-1 in the betting. Worth a small investment just in case Doddering Joe is retired before Nov 3 and she carries the flag into Election Day.

  18. Epidermis

    Surely he needs help/committal/furlough or a VP candidate committed to put the knife into his back.

  19. Dr Faustus

    Steroids, risperidone, amphetamines, whatever, Biden will be kept upright until the election – participating if at all possible.

    The alternative for the Democrats is to bump someone other than Unelectable Bernie into top spot – and reap the storm from the substantial left of the party. In the Dem primaries, Sanders was second (25% popular) with daylight to Warren/Bloomberg. Harris withdrew before voting.

    Bums will be twitching.

    Hey it worked with JFK.

  21. Nob

    Are the comedians doing the hilarious lipsync thing with Biden speeches like they’ve done with Trump?

    I don’t keep up with Twitter and TikTok and Instagram (that’s still a thing, right?) so maybe I missed it.

  22. Roger

    Is America ready for Kamala?

    Pass the cornpop, will you.

    Do they need to?

  24. Up The Workers!

    Is senile dementia and recidivist kiddy-sniffing something that comes from a lifetime of vigorous Leftardism, or is it a mere stage that one passes through before qualifying as a virulent Leftard?

  25. Up The Workers!

    To: Feel The Bern at 9.56 a.m.:

    You forgot “Formaldehyde” – it is often used in the preservation of antique anatomical specimens and assorted museum-pieces such as Creepy Old Joe Bidet of the Dementiacrats.

  26. Up The Workers!

    Wow!

    What an inspiring speech by Old Dementia Joe – the Einstein of the Left.

    If he keeps this up, AnAl the Brothel-Hopper may sack Sarah Halfwit-Bung and Adam Bandt as the contracted Chief Intellectuals and Policy-Makers for the Australian Liars Party and appoint Creepy Old Joe-of-the-Dead instead.

  27. Speedbox

    That was funny. Actually laughed out loud.

  28. AC

    Colbert is such a wanker!!!

    No hard questions just verbal masturbation!!

  29. Dinky

    You mean I wasn’t watching Weekend at Bernie’s?

  30. For those who are expressing sympathy and calling Biden’s situation “elder abuse” you do realise he is a terrible person right?
    Maybe not quite evil like The Kenyan and Crooked or Rapey Bill, but a terrible person none the less.

    I for one am hoping he suffers right up until election day and the surprise of being thrashed in a landslide brings on his condition stat.

    I am no longer giving those on the prominent left the benefit of doubt. My default position is that they are evil people who couldn’t care less how many lives they destroy so long as they get their way.

  31. The BigBlueCat

    Biden is unelectable. But should it happen, it won’t be long and we’ll see Harris replace Biden via the 25th amendment.

    Trump needs to focus on both Biden and Harris and openly attack the extreme leftist positions both of them hold. And exploit their own contempt for each other.

    Frankly, I casn’t see middle America voting for the Democrats, but alas the Dems will make good on their threats to see a violent and divided USA for Trump’s next term.

  32. Terry

    ‘right up until election day and the surprise of being thrashed in a landslide’

    Relax. He won’t know. Come election night you will see all of his surrogates admonishing the American people for voting for the Trump landslide (those stupid voters), and calling for impeachment (again), a coup d’etat (again), increasing weaponisation of the Deep State (again), more violence in the streets (again), and civil war – all to appease their chronic TDS and their inability to deal with reality. They are insane.

    Then the entertainment will really start, as the Trump apparatus ramps-up (2nd term-style) to come after each of the traitors, one by one, and begins the process of holding them to account for their treason.
    Methinks a rapid expansion of Guantanamo Bay will be in order.

  33. Steve

    Strokes are mongrel things…I dont like the Dems, but no one deserves to experience a stroke….poor old Biden

  34. RJH

    Yeh Up the Workers – I have fond memories of that photo, I think taken by one of the local media of Albo emerging from the Marrickville Thai rub & tug shop. The look on his face was absolutely priceless, according to his minders, he was just fulfilling his parliamentary duties by visiting his constituents?

  35. Terry

    but no one deserves to experience a stroke

    No one? Not even ol’ Adolf, Joseph, or Mao?

    How about Pol Pot, Saddam, or Idi Amin?

  36. nb

    Dem-inspired disarray after election = China does the Taiwan thing.
    Dems deliberately create weak period in USA for China.
    What does China want for the money it pays the Bidens?
    Huge reward to main Dem players for China’s success, whether Dems win or lose.

  37. Damon

    I can’t believe the Dems would get away with pulling Biden in favour of Harris when she was so comprehensively thrashed in the primaries. Nobody, but nobody, likes her.

  38. Infidel Tiger King

    It’s inspiring to see a man this damaged and beaten refusing to give up.

  39. Megan

    How in the name of everything holy could anyone still capable of clear thinking consider this person a fully functioning human being with the clear capacity to serve as President?

    Speaks volumes without a coherent word being uttered.

  40. John64

    The look on his face was absolutely priceless, according to his minders, he was just fulfilling his parliamentary duties by visiting his constituents?

    The official line was that Albo attended for a therapeutic massage to relieve a stiff neck; sustained from too much business class flying fulfilling his duties as Minister for Transport and Infrastructure.

  41. Exit Stage Right

    Speaking of thrashings, Jill Biden the devoted wife deserves a good thrashing for propping up this farcical contender, a potential POTUS who has clearly lost his marbles.

  42. Derp

    Spare a thought for the poor ASL signer trying to make sense of that gibberish.
    Sound on… for the toughest job ever

  43. Archivist

    Here are pictures of the crowd he’s speaking to when he’s giving that speech.
    You have to see this to believe it. I’m not being sarcastic.

    pic 1
    and just in case you thought that was fake, or a joke of some kind… here it is from another angle.
    pic 2 (scroll down through the article for the photo halfway down)

  44. Tim Neilson

    The look on his face was absolutely priceless, according to his minders, he was just fulfilling his parliamentary duties by visiting his constituents?

    “I rub you wrong time”?

  45. Bear Necessities

    I think the Dems may try a ‘Dallas’ reset. One morning the US will wake up turn on the TV and there is Hillary. She will go “Don’t be stupid, I’ve always been the Democratic nominee!”.

  46. Bushkid

    While is abhor elder abuse, or seeing anyone like that being taken advantage of, the Dems have put Biden forward, and he’s going along with it.

    Whether he understands what’s going on or not, he’s the man they want in the White House as POTUS, unless of course the plan is still to do the switch before the election and parachute in someone who’s not in senile decline.

    I doubt they’d push Harris up to the top of the bill, she’s too unpopular and her recent remarks about demonstrations and riots needing to continue, even if the Dems win, won’t wear well with undecided voters.

    I think Americans generally are pretty well fed up with the constant rioting, burning and looting. It’s only the rabid Dems, lefties and anarchists who would be cheering for more of that. Eventually, all that destruction comes too close to home for the average punter, especially with the Antifa and BLM loonies saying they’re going to come for the suburbs next.

  47. Daily llama

    I don’t think the outcome of the election matters all that much, because whoever wins, the US is heading for civil war, and Putana and Emperor Xi are rubbing their hands with glee. We’ll all be glowing in the dark in a year or two. But to be fair, I just read the entire transcript of Sleepy Joe’s speech and he really only fluffed those couple of lines. Compared with thousands of inane ravings by the ranga in the last four years. Even Fox doesn’t seem to find it a big deal. Catallaxy has gone downhill of late, and that’s a shame

  48. Lee

    While is abhor elder abuse, or seeing anyone like that being taken advantage of, the Dems have put Biden forward, and he’s going along with it.

    I can’t abide those who say you can’t criticise Biden because of “elder abuse” (PDT isn’t that much younger, but apparently all the normal rules and conventions don’t apply to him), or because his mental faculties aren’t up to scratch.
    If all that is true, Biden shouldn’t even be in the running, if he and the Dems can’t cop the criticism.
    He, the Democrats and their supporters can’t have it both ways.

  49. Rex Anger

    Catallaxy has gone downhill of late, and that’s a shame

    Lolwut? You’ve been here barely a month and a half, flamed out spectacularly in your first proper anti-Cat, OrangeManBad troll rant and disappeared again. And you’ve the temerity to complain on yur reappearance that the quality of the Cat has dropped?!

    Well done, that man! That chuckle of disbelief you induced was worthy of a virtual beer…

  50. Professor Fred Lenin

    Biden is the decromats choice because he is the most harmless asshole they have . Forty some years in politics andnever actually did anything except take bribes and enriching his family,that what passes for a clean record in the decromat cesspit known as the DNC. So if Paedo Joe is the best just imagine what the restvare like ,think of it ,but not in front of the kids , the criminal Clintons ,,the first muslim half black president er ?wossisname Hussain ,botox pelosi ,noneckthe Liar ,nadler narxist, bernie the bolshevik etc ,looks like a jail roll call ,the left are the scum of the cesspit .

  51. C.L.

    But to be fair, I just read the entire transcript of Sleepy Joe’s speech and he really only fluffed those couple of lines.

    If you read the transcript of John Hewson’s chat with Mike Willesee, you’ll see the wedding cake was only a small part of the interview too.

    The trouble is, it was the one moment that encapsulated the candidate’s fundamental flaw. In Hewson’s case, it was a robotic economist’s aloofness from the real world.

    In Biden’s case, every verbal gaffe illustrates his fundamental flaw: he is a script-written geriatric asshole who has no idea what’s going on around him.

  52. Daily llama

    I rest my case, Rex. I’ve been here for years, sunshine. And I enjoy reading vigorous debates, unlike you and other dolts like Tim N, who seem to see abuse as a function of intelligence. Those that can, do- those that can’t, criticise. Silly little boys, didn’t mummy teach you any manners?

  53. C.L.

    Catallaxy has gone downhill of late, and that’s a shame

    I can literally remember people saying that in the early 2000s.
    Catallaxy has risen in standards in recent years. It used to be a total toilet.

  54. Daily llama

    Goddammit CL! I’m 63- at what age does geriatricity (I know, I just made it up) kick in? It’s a worry!

  55. Lee

    Catallaxy has gone downhill of late, and that’s a shame

    Not far enough to the Left for you?
    CL summed up Biden perfectly.

  56. Rex Anger

    And I enjoy reading vigorous debates, unlike you and other dolts like Tim N, who seem to see abuse as a function of intelligence

    The presence of flak merely indicates I am over the target, chump…

    .Silly little boys, didn’t mummy teach you any manners?

    If it gets thicker, my drop was bang-on.

  57. Rex Anger

    Oh darling, that’s about as insipid a response as one can get.

    Come on, insult me. I’ve been looking for a properly (and thoroughly enjoyable) escalating duel of absurdity since I discovered IamPeter’s range is limited to No, U!

    If not you, then whom? If I am as doltish as you declare, the surely your superior wit can best me?

  58. Daily llama

    You’ll have to wait, I’m a closet axe murderer and I’m looking for pinko victims…

    Me neither- a lifelong political parasite. A very nasty piece of work.

  60. Rex Anger

    How pinko? Rare-o? Steak tartare-o? E.coli-o? E-I-E-I-O?

    That’s just terrible. Bugger off while I read Pravda

    You’re a youngster, llama. 😉
    Most importantly, young at heart.

    Biden is actually a very nasty individual.

  67. Zatara

    Surely the Dems will replace him as the nominee. His clearly not well.

    There is no mechanism for replacing him other than reconvening the Dem National Convention and re-voting.

    But considering they never really convened the first time…

  68. Perfidious Albino

    I still think there’s a fair chance ‘something’ will happen with Biden in the next month, the ‘shocked’ Dems will drop either Hilary or Michelle Obama (Sanders an outside chance) in to ‘courageously’ carry the baton to the finish line ‘Joe would have wanted this’ style. If they have to convene an ‘emergency’ virtual convention to confirm the nomination they will. If the Dems reckon they are hosed regardless, they’ll keep Biden in place and then bring in a new VP to position as the candidate for the next election – probably Obama.

    Alternatively, if the election is still inconclusive into January due to a postal voting debacle, Pelosi will also be waiting in the wings to step in temporarily, with her pen ready to start signing executive orders.

  69. stackja

    USA Democrats have many voters fooled. FDR created the model.
    Ike upset things. Then JFK/LBJ resumed normal business. Followed later by Bill then later still later BO.
    MSM are the publicity branch of the Democrats.

  70. Zatara

    Alternatively, if the election is still inconclusive into January due to a postal voting debacle, Pelosi will also be waiting in the wings to step in temporarily, with her pen ready to start signing executive orders.

    The Speaker of the House stepping in only happens if the election isn’t held, not if it is under contention.

    The election will be held and by the first week of January that Congress will have certified the results.

    If no winner can be certified the Congress executes a ‘Contingent election‘ in which the House of Representatives elects a President. Who gets elected is therefor dependent on who wins the House in the Nov election.

  71. David Brewer

    But to be fair, I just read the entire transcript of Sleepy Joe’s speech and he really only fluffed those couple of lines.

    I don’t know how you can tell which lines he fluffed just from reading the transcript. A video of the speech as delivered is here. As the article around it points out, it contains quite a few fluffs for a relatively short speech, off a teleprompter, in a quiet, virtually TV-studio environment.

    But it’s the content that is really bad. Even Joe’s so-called condemnation of violence is evasive and mendacious, trying to make it all about Trump, white nationalists and the police, while never mentioning Antifa, Black Lives Matter, or any left-wing group by name:

    That’s why I’m speaking to you today. The incumbent President is incapable of telling us the truth, incapable of facing the facts, and incapable of healing. He doesn’t want to shed light, he wants to generate heat, and he’s stroking [sic] violence in our cities. You know this is a tragic fact of the matter, that, about his perilous hour, that how he’s dealing with this perilous hour in our nation [sic]. And now, we have to stand against violence, in every form it takes. Violence we’ve seen again and again and again, of unwarranted police shooting, excessive force, seven bullets in the back of Jacob Blake, knee in the neck of George Floyd, killing of Breonna Taylor in her own apartment. Violence of extremists and opportunists, right-wing militias, white supremacists, vigilantes, you know, who infiltrate protests, carrying weapons of war, hoping to wreak havoc and to derail any hope and support for progress. The senseless violence of looting and burning and destruction of property. I want to make it absolutely clear, so I’m going to be very clear about all of this: rioting is not protesting, looting is not protesting, setting fires is not protesting. None of this is protesting. It’s lawlessness, plain and simple. And those who do it should be prosecuted. Violence will not bring change, it will only bring destruction. It’s wrong in every way. It divides instead of unites. Destroys businesses, only hurts the working families that serve the community, makes things worse across the board, not better. No it’s not what Dr King or John Lewis taught, and it must end. Fires are burning and we have a President who fans the flames, rather than fighting the flames. But, we must not burn. We have to build. This President, long ago, forfeited any moral leadership in this country. He can’t stop the violence, because for years he’s fomented it. You know, he may believe mouthing the words “Law and Order” makes him strong, but his failure to call on his own supporters to stop acting as an armed militia in this country shows how weak he is.

    …and so on and on about Trump, “unwarranted police violence” and “emboldended white nationalists”.

    There is only one admission in all Joe’s palaver that the violence, looting and arson are coming from his own side. Did you spot it?

    But, we must not burn. We have to build.

    “We.” Yes, that’s right Joe. It’s your lot that’s been laying waste to inner cities across your country for months on end, without you raising a peep against them until now. You sure do have a hide accusing Trump of a “failure to call on his own supporters to stop acting as an armed militia in this country”!
