Joe Biden has a reputation for being both touchy and feely:
Will this be a problem for his Presidential aspirations? Probably not:
Biden is a formidable opponent, being a rather more folksy creep than the President. His base is very much the same as the President’s, indeed many of Trump’s supporters switched parties because the Dems abandoned the middle class. They are Biden’s natural constituency.
In a battle of the creeps, Biden’s above referenced lack of respect for personal space is being touted by many on the right as disqualifying. This analysis, to be charitable, represents a Brobdingnagian level of stupidity. Witness the fact that so many of us held our noses and voted for Pussygrabber McPottymouth over the Evita Peron von Pantsuit in the last election. Much is being made of the notion that today’s inter-sectional Dems won’t put up with him, but given the choice between placating their snowflakes and gaining power over the rest of us, one can be reasonably certain that the super-delegates will be as loyal to the Democrat activists as they were in 2016.
Indeed. A non-binary person of color may score three Intersectionality Pikachu Points, but so far, has only one vote.
