Can we all just stop pretending Biden is in charge of this ticket? CNN probably won’t, but for a brief moment in time last night, the liberal network managed to say the quiet part out loud about Harris taking over for Biden. In what was a rather awkward headline, Chris Cillizza’s piece on the VP pick described things this way.

The piece itself is what you’d expect, i.e. slobbering praise for Biden’s. It essentially asserts that Harris was the best pick ever, historical, and offers Trump no lines of attack to open up. How true any of that is will be tested in the near future, as I actually think Harris is wide open for attacks compared to Susan Rice, who would have been a more limited target (i.e. Benghazi, and I don’t think that’s an effective political attack anymore).

Regardless, here’s what you normally don’t do when a VP candidate is chosen for a ticket. You don’t immediately begin to speculate the top of the ticket is so incapable of doing the job that he may not finish out his first term. That’s usually a red flag to not make that person president in the first place.

But we are living in a reality where defeating Trump overtakes all common sense for the left, to the point where the media are salivating at the thought of a senile old man being elected because they can just swap him out for Harris when the time is right.
