The Morning Rant

"It's interesting how a bunch of stories have hit the media within the last couple of weeks about the creepiness of Joe Biden and his touchy, feely hands and hair-sniffing. Witnesses have come forward, so many, in fact, that you'd think the Republicans had nominated him for the Supreme Court. The media didn't have to run these stories. They could have spiked them as they have for other Democrats. They're not doing this out of the goodness of their hearts, or because they think this is an objectively newsworthy story. No, something else is going on. The media is having these stories fed to them by some other Democrat. Whoever it is wants to take creepy Joe out early. I'm convinced of this. It might be blotto O'Rourke. It might be Fauxahontas. Probably not criminal Avenatti. Probably not crazy Yang. Could be Buttplug, I suppose. Didn't he raise a record amount of money within the last few days? Perhaps commie Sanders learned his lesson from being schlonged last time and is learning to play hardball. Or, it might even be, get this, crooked Hillary. Yep, I don't count her out yet. I think she's still bitter about losing an election she should have won. Like Sauron trying to seize the One Ring, the presidency was within her grasp, so close that she could taste it, and then it just slipped through her fingers. And it's eating her alive, torturing her soul. I don't care what she's said, I think she wants another shot at it. I can well imagine the creepy Joe campaign crashing and burning because of all the creepy Joe stories and then, surprise, Hillary comes riding in on a white horse announcing her candidacy with all the power of the media, all of the big Democrat donors and bitter clinger NeverTrumpers behind her. I think she, out of all the potential Dem candidates, has the clout and the media contacts to pull a stunt like this."

No, not a PhotoShop. The story from 2012 is here. Your exercise for today is to try to imagine all of the hissy fits that would be erupting in the hair-on-fire media if this were an old pic of PDT.

Here is another prayer if you have trouble coming up with words:

Stay with me, Lord, for it is necessary to have you present so that I do not forget you. You know how easily I abandon you.
Stay with me, Lord, because I am weak, and I need your strength, so that I may not fall so often.
Stay with me, Lord, for you are my life, and without you, I am without fervor.
Stay with me, Lord, for you are my light, and without you, I am in darkness.
Stay with me, Lord, to show me your will.
Stay with me, Lord, so that I hear your voice and follow you.
Stay with me, Lord, for I desire to love you very much, and always be in your company.
Stay with me, Lord, if you wish me to be faithful to you.
Stay with me, Lord, for as poor as my soul is, I want it to be a place of consolation for you, a nest of love. Amen.
