Biden is So Incredibly Incapable of Putting Brain in Gear Before Opening Mouth

8/9/19 New York Post:
Gaffe-prone presidential hopeful Joe Biden put his foot in his mouth during an Iowa campaign stop on Thursday when he told a group of predominately Asian and Hispanic voters that “poor kids are just as bright, just as talented, as white kids.”
I ran into this when I was applying for college in 1974.  Almost by definition at the time, there were no poor white kids.

More reason to hope he gets the nomination?

And yet...he is a, if not the, frontrunner for Dem nomination.

I think the primaries are a beauty contest that the media uses to decide who should go up against in this case, the Republican candidate, but the last three elections were to decide who was scary enough to get out the Democrat vote, but not so attractive as to draw votes from the Democrat candidate. A fixed fight, in other words. Barak Obama vs the old white guy, Barak Obama vs the old white guy who couldn't beat the previous old white guy; in 2016 the Republican field was there to decide which one was unpopular enough to be beaten by Hilary. In 2000, Gore was beaten by a guy who the media made look like he couldn't speak well enough to order at a drive thru. Gore was a smooth talker, even with his odd delivery. in 2004 it was John Edwards, the Breck shampoo candidate.

The Omerta of the media will have to be strong for this one.
