I skipped it

I skipped it

If you’re wondering why I didn’t write about Joe Biden’s Address Before a Near Empty Chamber, it’s because I skipped it.

I imagine I’m not the only one who skipped it. You probably skipped it too.

And who can blame us?

Not even the nervous anticipation of waiting for Biden to say something idiotic could inspire me to sit through it.

I binge-watched Game of Thrones instead. Way I see it, if you’re going to spend the evening with an army of walking dead, at least choose the ones that are entertaining.

Besides, who wants to sit and stare at old Joe, Kamala Harris and Nancy Pelosi for over an hour. During President Trump’s State of the Union speeches in 2019 and 2020 I put a Post-it Note over Nancy. This year my choices were completely cover my computer monitor with a blanket or just skip the damn thing.

So I skipped it.

Joe Biden is a non-entity. He isn’t the President. He’s just the empty vessel propped on stage to burp out the words others want him to say. I no more want to sit through that than I would want to sit through a junior high school production of “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolf?”

The only reason Joe Biden delivered this speech at all is so the news media could sing his praises on his “100 Days in Office.”

And they are, aren’t they? They’re being downright cloying in their praise. Then again, journalists are like hookers; they make a living pretending to be impressed.

Well, I’m not impressed.

And suffering through an evening of Joe Biden reading off a teleprompter while Cersei Lannister Harris fantasizes about the moment she gets to stab him in the back isn’t my idea of must-see TV.


I wasn’t the only one.

Nielsen released their final estimate Thursday night that put total viewership for Joe’s speech at 26.94 million. So I’m not sure where the original 11.6M number people were sharing came from. It’s possible that 11.6M was just the initial tally. But still, even at 26.94M Biden is well below not only Trump, but Obama, Bush and Clinton as well.

    Ahh Dianny, You are just too kind… I haven’t seen any of the viewership numbers, or the Likes/Dislikes tallies, not sure that I absolutely need to. It was NOT Watched by a majority of his claimed 80 million voters for sure. I would be somewhat surprised if the numbers of viewers broke 100,000, definitely surprised if there were more than 500,000, and outright suspicious if the numbers are greater than a million. I would bet good money that the number of dislikes is at least 100X larger than the number of likes… As always, It’s a Pleasure visiting your site, Thank You again. Cheers

      It had a POTENTIAL viewership of millions due to it being on the screens of thousands of TV in hotel lobbies, airports, restaurants, and other public venues.

    If only we had JOURNALISTS to track down the string-pullers of those supercilious, evil clowns. Is it a domestic operation? Is it run out of Beijing or Zurich or Turks and Caicos? Underground somewhere in Utah? Americans want to know!

    What sort of drugs do they pump into Biden to keep him awake and lucid for twenty minutes? Asking for a friend…

    Ditto on the tune out ….
    We did tape the Tim Scott response.
    Makes you want to despise Twitter – leaving the Uncle Tim comment up for 11 hours.
    The Democrats wouldn’t no class if you loaded them up with an epidural full of it .

    Gee I missed it!

    Will it be a Summer rerun?

    I read my book instead. I’d rather put a hot poker in my eye than watch Oatmeal Joe blubbering like the buffoon that he is.
