Enough with the worrying, former Vice President Joe Biden's brain surgeon says.
As some voters murmur that the gaffe-prone Democratic presidential candidate's age is cause for extra concern this campaign cycle, Dr. Neal Kassell — the man who performed surgery on Biden three decades ago following two brain aneurysms — came out swinging for his former patient.
Kassell dismissed fears about the 76-year-old Biden's mental faculties, noting that he's "as sharp as he was 31 years ago" and assuring people that the hemorrhage and subsequent operations did not result in any brain damage. "I am going to vote for the candidate who I am absolutely certain has a brain that is functioning," Kassell told Politico. "And that narrows it down to exactly one."
Biden's physician, Dr. Kevin O'Connor, backed up Kassell. "Vice President Biden is in excellent physical condition," he said. "He is more than capable of handling the rigors of the campaign and the office for which he is running."
In fact, several experts told Politico that voters are placing too great an emphasis on the age of several candidates, particularly the five septuagenarians who are running, including Democratic candidates Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), 70, and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), 77, as well as 73-year-old President Trump and his lone Republican challenger, former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld, who is 74.
"They have prospects for survival that extend well beyond the four-year term of the office," said Dr. Jay Olshansky, who led an American Federation of Aging Research study last month that sought to determine how likely it is that a candidate would die while in office. "The bottom line is their chronological age does not matter at all." Read more at Politico. Tim O'Donnell
Is the doctor trying to avoid a law suit?
There must be some problem that I’m not aware of with Senile Joe...
Anyone with a history of working on Slow Joe’s brain isn’t, you know, brimming with credibility on the subject of brains.
Good thing he didn’t have prostate surgery.
LOL! That's not much of an endorsement.
The surgeon can claim that Biden’s brain was no worse after the aneurysms, but that is cold comfort given his starting point.
Interesting choice of words. 31 years ago was 1988, Joe Biden was running for President and had to drop out over a plagarism scandal where he didn't even bother to change the speech resulting in him lying about his own family history. And here's the headlines...

Listen to Slojo. Groper has processing issues. Nancy’s are even more obvious.
Fixed the link
Joes brain is functioning as good as it was 31 years ago. Everyone feeling warm and fuzzy now hold up your hand. Aww come on, hold up your hand. Sheesh, what a bunch a worry warts.
Somehow, “as sharp as he was 31 years ago” is not reassuring with Joe Biden.
Well if he doesn’t have Hans Delbruck’s brain he must have Abby somethings brain...
So Joe Biden is as sharp as he was 31 yrs. ago? Guess that doesn’t say too much for 31 yrs. ago.
Someone needs to photoshop Biden’s face on to the
poster for the movie, “The brain that wouldn’t die!”.
Why am I put in mind of Marty Feldman in “Young Frankenstein”?
