    Interesting article from Victor Davis Hanson, one of the "Intellectual Dark Web" (God, what a stupid time to be alive, with names such as that for classic liberalism).

    Would President Joe Biden Become 25th Amendment Material?

    Is it actually true that Slow Joe's brother James Biden acquired a $1.5B building contract in Iraq whilst Joe was Veep?

    Season Three of The West Wing: The Trump Years has the best flashback scenes ever.

    Biden isn't even close to becoming the next president yet and you are already beating the drum for stripping him of power... aren't you a bit pessimistic with that?

    On the other hand, your only options currently seem to be having Trump for another term or getting a Democrat. If your plan is to get a Democrat and then stripping him of his position, you still have to get an acceptable vice-president into position... AFAIK there's no new election if that happens, right? Are there any circumstances at all which would lead to a premature election?

    Well, the author is a relatively sophisticated type, so he was using the comparison with Slow Joe to point out how silly the insane partisanship from the Left has become.
    Correct.

    Considering that fascists constitute over half of the Democrat Party, I won't be as unhappy about Trump winning the next four years.

    There's no way in hell that Tulsi Gabbard gets the VP nod, & she's the only one of those who's not more repellent than dog vomit.
    I hear there's some medication for that sort of thing. Or thinking about baseball.

    So if the whole line of successors dies, everybody takes the happy pills, watches baseball and lets old nuns run the country until the next election, right? That seems to be an improvement, considering the current situation.

    A vacuum of power attracts sociopaths, so there will always be someone running to the fore in order to be seen as the parade's leader.

    So better bring a few nuns into position quickly, just in case.

    Apparently there aren't Catholic schools in Germany, if you don't think nuns can be sociopathic.

    My intent was to make SD write a reply because nothing witty came to my mind at that point.

    I think that nuns are among the least problematic candidates of the catholic church. You will surely find examples of terrible nuns, but there are basically terrible examples of everything. I guess if there's porn of something, it's unsuitable for the US presidency. BTW, that's equivalent to saying that whoever is a suitable president, there must be porn of him or her.

    What is NEVER mentioned is that American public school teachers diddle the kiddies at a rate roughly 20 times that of Catholic priests.

    Catholic priests also diddle kiddies at a rate lower than the general populace.

    While nuns are probably doing it among themselves only. Or is that just in pron?

    Seriousy, I wary with respect to that come without an expleanation. Are you comparing the per-capita amounts here?

    I heard that neo-nazi organizations are particularly notorious child molestors. I'm usually wary about assigning the topic to despicable issues of other kinds (it smells of an agenda, even if it would be for a "good" cause), but I'm not suprised about it happening in organizations that draw in psychopaths and the mentally sick.

    Per capita, but obviously numbers matter when considering the volumes involved.

    Doubtless it could also account for your neo-nazi numbers as well, & it certainly accounts for Muslims being culturally affiliated with pedophilia without the affect from their religious & cultural aspects. What's always amusing is to see the ABSOLUTETOTALFREAKOUT!!! from people when you mention Islamist child abuse & inbreeding... the very same people who find calling American "Rednecks" inbred child abusers side-splittingly hilarious.

    Having the experience of going through 12 years of education in Catholic schools when nuns (and brothers) were still the vast majority of the teachers I had, I have hands on experience with them. Some of them were the best teachers I ever had; others were the absolute worst. There didn't seem to be a middle ground.
