Uncle Joe--Biden, not Stalin--has joined the 2020 Democratic race for president. Whether he can overcome the testosterone-laden stench of maleness, or the scintillating glare of his whiteness to win the nomination is an open question. But, probably not. In any event, the Dems are putting together quite a weird list of policy proposals, though they may appeal to the murderers in jail who would presumably vote for them. The American media sucks. Even the Brits do better "Florida Man" stories than the US media. Things in Asia are getting interesting. While American politicans treat Russia as a world-spanning global opponent (they aren't), China is calmly, quietly building a blue-water navy, and going around poking stuff with a stick to see how we might respond.
