In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Bipartisanship breaks out Part Two: Democrats skip Biden speech

Now here’s something Democrats and Republicans can also agree on. Listening to Joe Biden just isn’t something anyone wants to do.

Democrats were supposed to be hearing him out during a retreat in Baltimore. But some decided they wanted to hear something more listenable, even if it – like Biden – is from another era.

According to Punchbowl:

A healthy contingent of House Democrats hung back in D.C. last night and skipped Biden’s speech. They went instead to the Gershwin Awards’ Joni Mitchell concert at D.A.R. Concert Hall. Reps. Maxwell Frost (Fla.), Earl Blumenauer (Ore.), Steve Cohen (Tenn.), Dan Kildee (Mich.), Mark Takano (Calif.), Andy Kim (N.J.), Katie Porter (Calif.), Pramila Jayapal (Wash.), Lloyd Doggett (Texas), Hillary Scholten (Mich.) and Greg Casar (Texas) were all at the concert.

  1. Back in the late 70s there was a fine bluegrass LP album produced by Peter Rowan, Vassar Clements, Jerry Garcia, David Grisman, It was truly a masterpiece and I am not a big bluegrass guy. The title was great: “Old and in the Way”.

    I cannot help think of Biden and his band of decrepit souls when I hear him speak.
    With due respect to all those fine seniors out there.
