“Stupid, it’s the economy.”
That was conventional political wisdom during the Clinton administration. However, a new president has been elected, and it is time to adopt a new campaign slogan for the midterm elections.
“Senile, it’s the economy.”
Democrats have fantasies about winning in November by embracing abortion. Of course, they have also been advocating for transgender rights, the grooming of young children, an influx of criminal immigrants, affordable fentanyl, critical race theory, the deindustrialization of America, etc.
Dreams of Democrats, nightmares of Americans.

Democrats once referred to themselves as the working class party. They currently solely speak for the non-working classes. What does inflation matter if you have a trust fund or are receiving welfare, and most Democrats fall into one of those categories.
The cost of food assistance increased by 21% about a year ago. Not so much with Social Security. The difference is that recipients of food benefits frequently have poor credit—illegals, drug addicts, and the unemployed, or Brandon voters.
To update Woody Guthrie, Brandon World is an utopia for welfare-dependent Americans to live in or visit, but—believe it or not—if you don’t have the EBT, you won’t find it nearly as appealing.

Under Dementia Joe Biden, things were not going to be run the way the government had promised. A return to normalcy was promised by the press-pass-carrying travelling companions with cards. Their concept of normalcy appears to be the Jimmy Carter error, er, era on steroids.
One of my listeners signs up for Stephen Moore’s free daily email. Moore shared a link to Paul Krugman’s lunatic leftist trustafarian column from November 2020. The headline read:
Taking Full Advantage of the Upcoming Biden Boom
This is the same person who prophesied that the election of Donald Trump will cause a depression in 2016. Go long on what Krugman predicts will happen and short on what he thinks won’t if you want to earn money.
Let’s finish with another adage from the political world, one that Donald J. Trump frequently echoed at rallies while he was serving as president.
Have you become weary of winning yet?
During the calamity that is dementia, Joe Biden, you simply need to alter one word in that question:
