1. Shoveling dirt on Biden.

Talking about some plagiarism from a speed in the late 80's. I'm too young to have known about it then, but you can be dollars to donuts that the R's will bring this to light.

2. Bring what "to light"? What 'dirt' needs illumination on Biden? That he is a compassionate man?

Nothing from nothing leaves nothing.

3. He was running for President in 1988.

 

Then allegations surfaced of plagiarism, and he withdrew. I recall it, and thought at the time he was seriously and permanently tainted. He had a very low profile for the next twenty years, until he became VP.

And yes, if he tries to mount a serious run, it will be used by the Republicans.

4. Like I said, nothing from the nothing GOP spreading nothing means nothing.

5. Not sure what exactly you mean there.

 

The problem is, the plagiarism did happen, and was a very black mark on Biden. It happened long enough ago, that I don't especially care -- although it apparently happened more than once.

8. Do you guys not know of Biden's unfortunate role in the Clarence Thomas SCOTUS hearings in the 90s?

He was the one who would not let three other women, even though they had traveled to DC and were ready and willing, to testify about Thomas' sexual harassment of them that would have bolstered Anita Hill's testimony of being sexually harassed by him.

If Biden runs that will definitely come out. As a matter of fact, an Anita Hill movie will be coming out soon that probably will rehash that whole sorry episode.

He's been a good, loyal VP but because of that and the plagiarism incident, I don't expect Biden to run.

9. Kornacki failed to mention this when he was listing Biden's accomplishment

during the 20 years between his first and 2nd attempted runs.

Actually, near the end, Kornacki was talking about how again, Dowd, was involved in a Biden story ....it sounded like he was trying to insuate something....Dukakis fired 2 aides for getting the video of the Kinnock plagiarism....personally, I think it was fair game...

6. Where is Rachel?

And why is she absent so often?

I miss her when she has a sub, which happens far too often.

7. She's probably not too happy with the network's rightward swing.
