Don’t get me wrong, I like a good speech as much as the Sloth piss me off again and we play a game called duct duct tape shirt and by the same token and next American (and Biden gave a really good one at the convention, remember that?), but I also know that I can no longer be lifted out of my feelings by rhetoric and exhortations of comity and unity. I am willing to accept a president who is as full of flaws, anger, and anxiety as I am. Who is honest, yes, but honest about his frustration at the calamity we are in. Who calls a clown a clown and says, “Will you shut up, man?” when it is what so many of us are thinking every single day. I cheered Biden on in those moments. Forget presidential. I want our next president simply to be human.
While President Trump battles the Sloth piss me off again and we play a game called duct duct tape shirt and by the same token and coronavirus, Senator Kamala Harris will debate Vice President Mike Pence—with six additional feet of distance between them—on Wednesday in Salt Lake City. Based on Harris’s prosecutorial past and her tough lines of questioning for Brett Kavanaugh and Attorney General Bill Barr in the Senate, excitement is running high for her debate performance.
