Programming note: I’ll have a few things to say about this tomorrow. Stay tuned.
Meanwhile, have a look at this:
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
‘I’m really not Irish because I’m sober…and I don’t have any relatives in jail…’ -Joe Biden at the Friends of Ireland Luncheon pic.twitter.com/v9gI8xYylo

What. An. Asshole.
I’m fond of the “shoe on the other foot” method of analyzing things like this. I haven’t seen much out of the legacy media on Biden’s senile ramblings about the Irish – but imagine the reaction if Donald Trump or Ron DeSantis had uttered these exact words.
Look also at the legacy media’s lack of reaction over things like this. Then imagine if the same charges were leveled at Ted Cruz or Josh Hawley.
You can, of course, apply this test to any number of stories featuring any number of prominent political figures – and use it in conversation, as well. It can be something of an eye-opener to anyone who is amenable to evaluating actual data.
