The Atlantic has an article
wondering why old men run America, and why, in particular, a geezer who cannot tell his wife from his sister is the likely Democratic candidate. The writer--a dopey geek with messy hair and an uncertain grasp of English, logic, and just about everything else worth learning--is puzzled, but anyone over 50 will hit upon an answer that would not please the "writer." And--here it is, let the trumpets bray--because Joe Biden, a lying corrupt politician who could not even tell his own lies about his life but had to plagiarize a British socialist, is several steps ahead of the youth today. The best part is that the kid (one Derek Thompson) hasn't the faintest clue. But not to worry, Derek, some day illiterate kids 55 years old and older will be running the country without fear of being outclassed by a crook with Alzhiemers.
