Ridin’ with Biden

To recap – Biden won.  But not by a landslide.  Someone please remind me in four years to market myself as a pollster – a job which apparently requires no credentials and has no accountability or expectation of accuracy.  What is still unknown is whether there will be a peaceful transition of power – but never have the words “don’t count on it” been more apt.  As with everything else in this unprecedented year, “unpresidential” is expected.  I was surprised that FOX News called states for Biden before any other network.  Laura Ingraham implying that a Supreme Court ruling could wreak havoc was less surprising.  This idea was also floated by Harmeet Dhillon – who is said to be a legal adviser to El Presidente’s campaign, although I’ve never heard that name before.  “We’re waiting for the United States Supreme Court – of which the president has nominated three justices – to step in and do something.”  Likewise, I’m waiting – just try it.

Meanwhile, Anderson Cooper is kicking himself.  During a live broadcast, he said the following: “This is the President of the United States.  That is the most powerful person in the world, and we see him like an obese turtle on his back, flailing in the hot sun, realizing his time is over.  But he just hasn’t accepted it, and he wants to take everybody down with him…including this country.”  It wasn’t the first time the newsman had let his less-than-impartial views bubble to the surface.  Back in May, he called Trump “a little man, despite his girth and size.”  Cooper later said, “I regret using those words, ‘cause that’s not the person I really want to be.”  And I really want to be mistaken for a fitness model.  But you is what you is.

As all eyes are on Biden, I’m hopeful and cautiously optimistic.  He told the Philadelphia Gay News, “I will make enactment of the Equality Act a top legislative priority during my first 100 days.”  While that sounds peachy, I’m OK with putting that on hold and getting some stimulus and unemployment money out to people who need it.
