Biden Calls It Quits for the Day -- at 9:26am

Biden has called a lid for the day.
9:26 AM · Sep 24, 2020

Charles C.W. Cooke considers a theory that a friend of mine had suggested -- that Biden's events are suspiciously small and unpublicized to make it very easy for him to cancel them if his brain is having a not-so-fresh feeling.

As of late, Biden's team has regularly put a "lid" on his day by noon -- or even earlier. And, when it does not, the events that Biden attends seem to have been designed to be either easily cancelable or easily replaceable. Were President Trump to cancel a rally, he would be unable to hide it. This is not true of the events on Biden's schedule, which, the New York Times's Mark Leibovich observes, are "quiet, eerie and almost entirely fan-free."
There is scant physical evidence that the former vice president and Democratic nominee is in town. His visits are scarcely publicized beforehand, logistical details are closely held and his event venues serve as much as video studios as places of gathering. Barely anyone is allowed near the candidate.

Those with suspicious minds have started to wonder if there is something wrong with Biden. Perhaps he is unable to work every day? Perhaps his schedule needs to be set up in such a way as it can be amended without notice?

I already thought my friend's theory was plausible, but now there's proof that key prerequisites for his theory (that the events are kept secret, so that if he cancels them, no one's the wiser) is true.

So: Did Biden actually have an event planned for later, but sundowned, so he cancelled it?

Biden can disprove this "conspiracy theory" rather simply: He can begin announcing his schedule of appearances days in advance, so we can see if he's actually making the appearances he plans, or if he's cancelling some and suddenly deciding to have others when he's having a "good day."

But I bet you: He won't.

Because it's true.

Even Baseball C#ck can see this is a sign of dementia:

When my dad was in a home for dementia, he didn't have this many bad days before noon.

Other NeverTrumpers are busy tweet tweet tweeting that it's completely normal for a presidential candidate to routinely call "lids" before 10 am and take many days completely off -- in September, with 40 days remaining until the election.

This is outrageous. Biden's "lids" should lead every newscast. He is clearly not fit for office.

That is lisped sarcastically.

Andrew McCarthy also lisps that this is just some fine strategery by Biden, capitalizing on the statement Trump made about a contested election, which all the neocons/neoliberals are having their 100th coordinated group Twitter freakout about:

I don't get why this is mystifying. Trump says crazy stuff that can't be defended other than to dismiss as 'he didn't mean it the way it sounded'; media spends day talking about a coup; Biden decides to lay low, keep quiet, and reap the benefit. Moral: Don't say crazy stuff.

Biden decides to make his constant absences, and constant "lid" calling before 10 am, the story? Yes, that's probably the strategery he's going for, Andy.

Oh, and tell me more about the Incorruptibles of the Justice Department while you're at it.

Apparently Biden has announced that he's starting debate prep today, and is floating the spin that he's taking the day off for debate prep -- isn't the debate on Tuesday?

And does that explain him taking off one third of all days in September? When he just announced he was starting debate prep today?

No, it doesn't.

But that's the "explanation" being floated by Biden's puppethandlers, and all of the leftwing and NeverTrump media types (but I repeat myself, as usual) are dutifully claiming this to be a plausible excuse for being consistently unable, as Julie Kelly put it, "for more than seven hours per week."

Look, there's not a single Democrat campaign staffer who'd prefer their candidate taking many days off right now. They'd rather have him out there. Any other excuses are just excuses for Biden's deteriorating mental state.

Nah Dave, it's all Crafty Strategery by a brilliant man clearly in full possession of his faculties.
