When your ticket is a man in the early stages of dementia and a woman who couldn’t make it to the first primary despite having every built-in advantage, getting people excited to come out and see you is a bit like hyping up a trip to the dentist. I mean, yeah, you’ve got some freaks who enjoy having their teeth prodded, but it’s not many.
Enter this “parade” that Jill Biden’s press secretary was promoting yesterday. Watch the video closely.
If you watched the video, you probably just witnessed the most pathetic parade in political history. It totaled an entire three cars. The press quickly ran into the road after the last car passed so as to confirm there were no more coming.
The roasting began in short order.
Comedic value aside, I didn’t write on this just to make fun of there only being three cars, though that’s a worthy cause all by itself. I actually think this stuff matters.
The Biden campaign is running on auto-pilot right now and they haven’t even loaded an approach yet. What I mean by that is that they are just cruising. They aren’t knocking on doors, they aren’t holding rallies, and they aren’t preparing to get out the vote. Sure, they are doing mailers and plastering the airwaves with ads, but those things have been shown to be less and less effective over the last several election cycles. If TV ads mattered all that much, Donald Trump wouldn’t be President, as Hillary Clinton swamped him in that arena in 2016.
