The Morning Rant

As ace reported the other day, the New York Times announced that Tara Reade's rape allegations against Joe Biden should not be "investigated or adjudicated" by the media. Thus the Times jettisoned their long tradition of investigative reporting, i.e. journalism.

I have sources that have told me that, accordingly, the DNC has put together a blue-ribbon panel of hands-on experts who are very much in touch with latest criteria to conduct a full and thorough investigation of Tara Reade's accusations that have been festering on the rump of the Joe Biden campaign like a pus-filled sore.

The following outstanding, upright individuals have been selected for the committee:

Bill Clinton
Harvey Weinstein
Roman Polanski
Woody Allen
Eliot Spitzer
Bob 'Filthy' Filner
John Edwards
Anthony Weiner

Each of these men were selected for their firm grasp of the issues involved. They are not in the least squeamish about probing deep into the heart of the matter. The Committee will meet every Saturday night down at the Pink Pussycat Gentlemen's Club in Washington DC. Committee Chair Bill Clinton will present each member with select cigars from his exclusive collection.

And on another note, there has been much speculation about who the Democrats are going to chose to replace the senile half-wit Joe Biden when everyone comes to the conclusion that he has just got to go. My prediction is: they won't. And the NY Times editorial confirms it. The editorial would have thrown Biden overboard if the plan was to replace him. The Democratic Party leadership and deep-pocket donors are all 100% behind Stinkyfingers. There are Democrats who loudly insist "There is NOTHING wrong with Joe Biden. He may stutter a bit, but he's PERFECTLY FINE!" The only prominent Democrat who wants Joe to step aside is Peter Daou, but his lips are permanently glued to Hillary's butt, so you know who he wants as a replacement.

Monday's celebs: The back-in-the-day babelicious Dyan Cannon, who was briefly married to Cary Grant, nominated a Best Supporting Oscar (her co-star Elliott Gould was also nominated) for her role in the 1969 film Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, which I've never seen, but I remember when it first came out. It got a lot of attention in popular culture magazines. I think it was about adultery, or wife-swapping, or group sex or some such. It was considered all "hip" and "edgy" at the time, but today it wouldn't even make it out of the preliminary rounds of the Stunning and Brave Olympics. Because everybody is white, everybody is heterosexual, everybody is the gender they were born as, and everybody is married. So, boring. I think it's one of those movies that you almost can't watch because it's just so painfully dated. In fact, B&C&T&A was probably already dated when it was first released.
