Sometimes the best commentary on what is happening today was written years ago. The following skit by Abbott and Costello is a perfect description of the Biden-Harris Administration. We are literally a country without a leader. Joe Biden is obviously not in charge. Yet no one is discussing the 25th Amendment because Kamala Harris would be even worse.
The following perfectly describes the COVID 19 relief bill:
Costello: Look, when you pay off the first baseman every month, who do you pay the money to?
Abbott: Every dollar of it.
Costello: Yeah. Look, you gotta pay the money to somebody on first base, don’t you?
Costello: Does he give you a receipt?
Costello: How does he sign the receipt?
Costello: The guy that you give the money to.
Costello: The guy you give the money to.
Abbott: That’s how he signs it.
Costello: That’s how who signs it?
Costello: Well go ahead and tell me!? Abbott: That’s it.
Costello: That’s who?
Costello: When you give the guy the money, doesn’t he have to sign the receipt?
Abbott: He does!
Costello: Well, how does he sign his name?
Costello: The guy you give the money to.
Abbott: That’s how he signs it!
Costello: You! You! You just don’t give money to someone without having them sign the receipt!
Sadly, although this administration is a joke, there is nothing funny about it. For four years the MSM desperately tried to portray Donald Trump as an inept and irresponsible leader. But the rest of the world knew that he was actually a very serious man and they respected him. They also respected and feared the United States. Now the opposite is true. The MSM is still pretending that Joe Biden is secretly a great President. The rest of the world knows better. They view Biden as a sick joke. His face plant going up the steps to Air Force One just confirmed the obvious. Unfortunately, when you disrespect the President of the United States, you disrespect the United States.
What makes this worse is that there is no plan B. Kamala Harris has zero support from anyone, including the Democratic establishment. If (when) she becomes President, she will never be accepted as the President of the United States.
Costello: I said, I don’t give a darn!
Abbott: Oh, that’s our shortstop!
Instead, she will be just a token, ignored by almost everyone. The United States Government will be run by an unelected and often invisible secret committee. Actually, by several double secret committees frequently working at cross purposes with each other. It is a recipe for total chaos.
The only good news here is that this is becoming obvious to everyone. While things are truly bad and getting worse, ironically, they are also getting better. When a team performs this poorly, everyone gets fired. The General Manager, the Coach, the Players and sometimes even the owner. The only thing certain is that people will be demanding and voting for change. As John Kennedy once said: “defeat is an orphan!”
I also believe that Donald Trump is in for a rough ride. Not because he is criticized by someone like George W. Bush, who has become an embarrassment to the Republican Party. His problem is quite simply that, as he admitted, he lost to the worst candidate in American History. Even if the election was stolen, which it was, it still reflects poorly on Trump. Everyone knew what the Democrats were going to do, yet no one did anything about it. Losing to a poor team is still losing, and people are going to be looking for a winner. The movement Trump started will continue, but people are already looking for new leaders.
We live in interesting times. The only safe prediction is uncertainty and change. Change that comes faster than anyone can even imagine.
This reminds me of when I played a round of golf at Oakland Hills Country, just before the U.S. open. The greens were like glass. I stupidly hit my shot about 60 feet above the hole. I asked the caddy what to do. He said just touch the ball and grab your ankles. Once that ball starts moving down hill it is not going to stop anywhere on this green. I touched the ball the ball, and then walked back to my bag. I was literally walking faster than the ball was moving. I put my putter in the bag and pulled out a wedge. I turned around was watched the ball accidently go into the cup.
Sometimes the best option is to just watch and grab your ankles.
