    I don’t know exactly what Norm Macdonald meant when he suggested Me Too has “slowed down.” But there’s some truth to his basic observation, and Joe Biden surfaced this week to remind us all why much of the public is less inclined to share the media’s boundless enthusiasm for the movement. Let’s first note that the great champions of women gathered at the Emmys on Monday dared not utter a direct word about Les Moonves (as flagged by Howard Stern). Had the allegations against him made their way into the New Yorker earlier in Me Too’s forceful first year, that...

    Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were both teenagers, is being advised by Democratic operative Ricki Seidman. Seidman, a senior principal at TSD Communications, worked as Joe Biden’s communications director during the 2008 general election campaign, after he was named Barack Obama’s running mate. In 2009, according to her online biography, she helped the White House manage the confirmation of Obama's Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor.

    Forces of intolerance remain determined to undermine and roll back the progress you have made. This time they – not you – have an ally in the White House. They’re a small percentage of the American people, virulent people. Some of them, the dregs of society. Joe Biden—Monica Showalter “Hey, dregs of society! Joe Biden wants your vote” So here I was, trying to decide if I should get a new shirt to replace my rather worn-looking “Irredeemably Deplorable” T-shirt, when along comes Joe Biden to the rescue and hands me a brand-new meme to sport around town. What a...

    In his speech at the annual Human Rights Campaign dinner in Washington, D.C., September 15, 2018, former VP Joe Biden attacked the millions of Americans who support President Trump, calling them "intolerant", “virulent people” and “dregs of society”, and of committing a “crime” of prejudice against LGBTQ people.

    Shortened title. Full title: HUGE! Joe DiGenova: Yates, Rice, Biden, Comey and Obama Met in White House to Discuss Targeting Mike Flynn During the infamous January 5, 2017 White House meeting Sally Yates, Susan Rice, Joe Biden, James Comey and Barack Obama discussed how they would target General Michael Flynn. This is a huge development! 1. Mueller has told close confidants he was handed “a piece of crap on collusion.” But investigated it further with no fruits. 2. DiGenova mentions, “James Baker, former FBI General Counsel, is a cooperating witness in a case against James Comey.” 3. DiGenova says there...

    The Senate's most senior lawmaker said Tuesday he will skip the Israeli prime minister's speech to Congress next month on Iran, calling the invitation by Republicans without White House consultation a "tawdry and high-handed stunt." Related Stories Seven-term Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont joined a half dozen Democrats who have decided to boycott Benjamin Netanyahu's speech, which comes in middle of delicate negotiations involving the United States, Western powers and Iran over its nuclear program. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, invited Netanyahu to address a joint meeting of Congress on March 3. "The unfortunate way that House leaders have unilaterally...

In a short video posted to Youtube by America Rising PAC, Biden looks right at the camera and says, “you’re a real prick.” A woman in a white t-shirt near Biden appears to be trying to cover the tracker’s camera with her hand.

    Shortly after Joe Biden boarded a recent flight from Washington to New York, a string of passengers began stopping at his seat in coach to deliver some version of the same message: Run, Joe, run. "We're with you," one said, according to a Democratic strategist who happened to be on the plane and witnessed the scene. "You've got to do this," said another. Biden himself is more conflicted — but he is listening keenly to the supporters pushing him to run for the White House in 2020. Biden is convinced he can beat President Donald Trump, friends and advisers say,...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden on Monday said that "everything" is at stake for Democrats in the upcoming midterms. “Everything. It’s simple: everything," Biden said in response to a question from a Politico reporter on the importance of November's general election. Biden made the comments as he prepared to march in the Labor Day parade in Pittsburgh. His statement comes just a couple months before a midterm election that Democrats view as a chance to retake control of the House and maybe the Senate. Democrats hold a 6-point edge over Republicans on a generic congressional ballot, according to a poll...

    And then there were the three who spoke on Friday. You had to control your gag reflex watching Vice President Pence, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) extol McCain’s greatness as he was accorded the honor of lying in state. Consider Pence for a moment. He began with a ludicrous declaration that broke all records for disingenuousness: “The president asked me to be here on behalf of a grateful nation, to pay a debt of honor and respect to a man who served our country throughout his life, in uniform and in public...

    Former VP rejects tribal politics. The president embraces it ANALYSIS | Two very different speeches by two very different politicians Thursday — made 1,600 miles apart — provide a possible preview of the next presidential campaign. Former Vice President Joe Biden, a potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, went first by feting his longtime friend Sen. John McCain at a memorial service for the late Arizona Republican in Phoenix. Biden spoke about “values, fairness, honesty, dignity, respect,” and McCain’s belief in “giving hate no safe harbor.” Biden spent much of his eulogy lauding McCain’s willingness to work with Democrats and lamenting...

    Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden are among those touted as serious Democratic presidential contenders in 2020, but three-out-of-four Democrats think their party needs to turn to someone new. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 73% of Likely Democratic Voters believe their party should look for a fresh face to run for president in 2020. Just 16% disagree and think the party should promote a candidate who has already run in the past. Eleven percent (11%) are undecided.

    Joe Biden is leading the Democratic field in some early polls asking voters about the party’s prospective presidential candidates in 2020. But in his old stomping grounds in the U.S. Senate, there are plenty of skeptics who point to the former vice president’s age, his support for the Iraq War and his two failed presidential bids as reasons to doubt he would be successful. “It’s hard to see someone [winning] who voted for the Iraq war. People are looking to turn the page,” one senior Democratic aide said. A second senior Democratic aide said “polls show that voters want someone...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden’s niece avoided jail on Thursday after a Manhattan Criminal Court judge sentenced her to two years’ probation for stealing more than $100,000 in a credit card scam. Caroline Biden, 31, accepted the two-year probation sentence after she pleaded guilty in June 2017 to racking up $110,810 worth of charges on a borrowed credit card as she went on a shopping spree. “I not only acknowledge my conduct and take responsibility but deeply regret the harm caused,” Caroline told Justice Curtis Farber at her Thursday sentencing, according to the New York Post. “I can assure you...

    NY Mag ^ | 7/21/18 | Ed Kilgore
    There’s no question that the story of the Democratic party right now is about the ascending left. There’s a bumper crop of self-consciously progressive candidates running for office this year, while many relatively non-ideological “Establishment Democrats” are embracing policy positions and political messages long associated with party insurgents. The relative strength of various Democratic factions in Congress won’t be possible to reliably measure until after the midterms. But with the 2020 presidential election cycle soon to begin (the first candidate debates will probably be held about this time next year), it’s looking like progressives may have many more viable options...
