Joe Biden's ratings are so low that analysts are wearing miner's hats to get down to the point on the graph where people "approve" his leadership. Perhaps the vast, "disapproving" majority don't like $3.50 a gallon gas and paying four bucks for a can of Spam.
Maybe it's the empty shelves, drag queens in uniform and unconstitutional COVID shot mandates, now being primed for six-month-old babies. Maybe it's the homicidal crime wave in Democrat-run cities where Mr. Biden's pal George Soros bought prosecutors who prefer criminals over the police. Maybe it's homeless tents taking over huge areas in the same cities, spawning crime and hazardous health conditions.
Maybe it's seeing drug dealers and violent criminals pour over our southern border while taxpayers fund secret flights of thousands of illegal aliens all over the country. This, while Mr. Biden is sending U.S. troops to defend Ukraine's border – not ours.
No matter where you look, the Democrat elites are being exposed as rank hypocrites, grifters and in some cases, not-so closeted Marxists.
Peter Schweizer's new book "Red Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win," reveals the Biden family's extensive business dealings with Chinese communist companies. How can Mr. Biden hold China accountable for anything?
At the Supreme Court, Democrats are assailing Clarence Thomas's wife Ginni's conservative activism as a "conflict of interest." They saw no conflict when Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan failed to recuse themselves from the Obergefell same-sex marriage case even though both justices had themselves officiated same-sex "marriage" rites.
Meanwhile, longtime liberal Stephen Breyer has been forced to retire so Mr. Biden can appoint a younger leftist. Mr. Biden's vow that no one but a black woman will be nominated would have gotten any business or college hauled into court.
Mr. Biden wants the Senate to get rid of the filibuster. In 2005, Sen. Biden defended the filibuster, warning the GOP not to end it. For two years, he filibustered the nomination of California Supreme Court Justice Janice Rogers Brown, an eminently qualified conservative black woman, to a federal appeals court and voted against her three times. Think the New York Times or CNN find that newsworthy?
"It seems that every day we see people on the left commit crimes, get caught in utter hypocrisy and outright scandal, and never pay any penalty for it. The double standard is unbelievable. But it's catching up with some in the media, especially at CNN." (Robert Knight, in an interview with AFN)
Speaking of CNN, the Democrat network's ratings have cratered, and its hard-left boss Jeff Zucker has resigned in disgrace. The network is engulfed in sexual misconduct. Legal correspondent Jeffrey Toobin was caught, uh, pleasuring himself in view of female co-workers during a Zoom meeting. Naturally, he was rehired after a cooling-off period.
Zucker, who turned CNN from a liberal mouthpiece into full-blown government propaganda, said he resigned over his longtime affair with Allison Gollust, a top aide to former New York Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo while Zucker and she were married to other people.
Mr. Cuomo, whose COVID-19 nursing home policy killed thousands, also resigned in disgrace, accused of sexual harassment. Andrew's brother Chris Cuomo, a CNN star, was fired by Mr. Zucker over allegations that Chris helped cover up his brother's alleged lechery. In December, Cuomo's producer was indicted on charges of luring young girls for "sexual subservience" training. Days later, Project Veritas released a video implicating yet another CNN producer who is under investigation for allegedly eliciting explicit photos of an underage girl and fantasizing about his fiancé's underage daughter. Is there anyone left at CNN who isn't a pervert?
Over on ABC's woke Democrat hen fest "The View," Whoopi Goldberg was placed on two weeks' suspension for insisting that the Holocaust, in which six million Jews were executed, was not about "race." Ms. Goldberg's breaking the left's cardinal rule that Everything Is About Race is beyond satire.
Or not. Here's the Babylon Bee, dateline Hades:
"Reports are coming out from the fiery underworld that even Adolph Hitler … was caught by surprise when he heard Whoopi Goldberg's comments that the holocaust he started was 'not about race.'
"'I compared the Jews to rats and to germs! I appealed to social Darwinism and eugenics on a constant basis to justify everything I did for the master Aryan race! How could this Whoopi Goldberg not pick up what I was laying down!?' the mustachioed psychopath was overheard shouting in a thick German accent."
The Bee adds that Hitler couldn't miss Whoopi's comments since, "no matter what channel or streaming service one flips to in Hell, the only program that comes through on every channel is The View."
To which we might add: "Or CNN."
Democrats must be thanking their deity du jour that the election is still ten months away.
