We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Uh-oh. The word is out they are ready to switch to Harris. These are the warning shots. Lord knows I don't want Biden to be president, but the current alternative is worse.
Vlad Putin and other dictators are licking their chops over the possibility of having to deal with Kamala. We had better pray that they get greedy and quickly overplay their hands in their eagerness to take advantage of her.

Well . . . . you know, they don't like to call them lies. These days they're "off base" statements.
White Only or Colored Only drinking fountains is Racist, right?
Can someone explain how 5 Billion (or was it only million? Nope. Billion.) for black farmers is not racist?

Neither impressed nor convinced. It's OK to level attacks on Joe Biden. First of all, he's no Obama - he can't defend himself anymore, and there is no threat that he can even articulate, much less level, to throw off the hyenas.
The real purpose here (my guess) is to prepare the public for Step 2 in the procedure: The coronation of Kamala. She'll be portrayed as level-headed, wise, experienced, and not senile. She's already in the driver's seat for foreign policy, taking all calls. You have to wonder: Why? She has no foreign policy expertise or experience.
So: Within 2 years I reckon. That'll set her up for two full terms plus Biden's remainder for training. Get ready for the female VP pick. We'll start hearing all about her soon, guiding the two paths toward convergence.
I would bet that the idea of Kamala assuming office at 12:15AM on 1/21/2023 has occurred to some Democratic strategists, yes. I hadn't thought of that angle. But I don't think they will have the discipline to pull that off. They are going to need help in 2022, and what shape Biden is in could make a difference. Also, they might get greedy about RIGHT NOW if they can't get what they want done with these bare majorities, especially if their polling tells them it's going away.
