Those of you who were around for the old forum know that my father died about four years ago, suffering from dementia.
Since the early days of the 020 campaign when Joe referred, in a town hall meeting, to a potential female voter as, "dogfaced " I began to compare candidate Bidenís behavior to that of my dad as he drifted farther and farther into dementia.
President Bidenís ejaculation, during his major speech on the Ukraine/Russia conflict, "For God's sake, this man cannot remain in power," is precisely the sort of thing dad said many times as his brain faded away.
People suffering from dementia lose the ability to understand that there are things a person who can function acceptably in society can think but, absolutely, cannot say.
Yikes, can I tell stories! We loved dad and we still retell the stories with laughter and affection.
Only one example:
Mom had an appointment with a new doctor. Dad was so far gone that he couldn't be left alone at home so we took him along to mom's appointment.
The doctor entered the examination room, closed the door and, immediately, dad shouted, "Man, does he have big feet!"
No one had to explain to the doctor that dad's not in his right mind.
That's Joe Biden today. Joe punctuated a reasonably good State of the Union address shouting, "Go get em!"
Now, as Biden neared the end of a very well written, JFKesque speech, many of us very likely were thinking, "For God's sake, this man cannot remain in power."
The problem with people suffering from dementia is that, when they're in front of people, you can think, "Man, does he have big feet," but you can't say it out loud.
And, if you are the President of the United States, and you're giving a speech being broadcast across the world, you can think, "For God's sake, this man cannot remain in power," but you can't say it for all the world to hear.
I've been saying that the guy who described that unsuspecting female voter "dogfaced" is behaving in the way people with dementia behave.
Without doubt, the guy who just said, "For God's sake, this man cannot remain in power," has a brain that ain't right.
