It feels like this country is losing control of inflation. It feels like it's getting worse. In Dallas over the weekend, a bottle of water was going for $8. That's water, which we used to get for free from the sky. Now it's $8, and people are paying it, too. If you were thirsty in downtown Dallas on Saturday morning, you didn't really have a choice. This is not a small development. Inflation will make this country poor and it will do it faster than anything else will. Anyone who doesn't understand that intuitively is an idiot or is irresponsible or both. If you think COVID or climate change or police brutality or Iran is a bigger threat to the United States than the devaluation of the U.S. dollar, then you, by definition, should not be making meaningful decisions. You're a moron.
So with that standard mind, let's check in with our friends over at CNN to see what they're covering today on their news channel. Oh, it looks like they're planning a palace coup at the White House. Just another day in Washington. Turns out, CNN's researchers have discovered that Joe Biden is elderly and unpopular. Breaking news. And therefore he's probably not the best vehicle for the ambitions of the Democratic Party going forward. Obviously, Biden isn't going to serve two terms, so as a public service, CNN has assembled a list of people who should replace Joe Biden.
It's all pretty amusing when you think about it. Apparently, somebody in CNN's math department finally finished the complicated calculations and concluded that Joe Biden, who's already had two cerebral aneurysms, will be 86 years old by the end of his second term. Wait, what? Eighty-six years old? CNN had no idea Joe Biden was that old. Didn't tell us about it, either. Clearly, this is not going to work. Time for someone new. That's what they're saying.
