Wait a second! Was that the President of the United States talking? No, that’s what you thought. In fact, it was Jesus in aviator glasses. What Joe Biden said last night was beautiful, beautiful. It was intimate, grandfatherly, indeed, Rooseveltian. Joe Biden spoke to the soul of America. He connected with people who don’t even deserve to be connected with. Hopeless sinners, redeemed by his voice alone. A voice that is not – and we want to be clear about this – the fading monotone of a 78-year-old man who is losing his grip. No, it’s not. Joe Biden’s voice modulates. It has the capacity to change pitch in a way that is – and we are quoting now – “rather extraordinary,” and so on.
We could keep going with this if we wanted. Cable news is a rich vein, but we will stop and return to reality. A powerful politician gave a speech last night about how he plans to change your life, so we feel obligated to tell you what he said and not simply commit a series of symbolic sex acts upon him.

Robinson was sentenced Wednesday to four years in prison and two years of supervised release, according to a news release from the District of Minnesota's US attorney's office. He was also ordered to pay $12 million in restitution.
Robinson's attorney has not responded to CNN's request for comment.
According to the indictment, Robinson and others allegedly "worked together in furtherance of their common goal of damaging and destroying the Minneapolis Third Precinct building by fire."
Robinson was accused of lighting an incendiary device that was held by another person who threw it toward the precinct "with the intent that it would start a fire or fuel an existing fire," according to the criminal complaint.
Protesters set the Minneapolis police precinct on fire after pushing past a fence that was surrounding it and climbing up the building, CNN reported. The Minneapolis Police Department had evacuated the precinct, the director of the department's Office of Public Information said at the time. There was no police present while the precinct burned, CNN reported.
Three other men, including Branden Michael Wolfe, have also pleaded guilty to one count each of conspiracy to commit arson in connection to the fire at the Minneapolis police department's Third Precinct. They will be sentenced at a later date, the US Attorney's Office for the District of Minnesota said.....
Here’s the deal: No matter how you look at the map, the only way Democrats can hold power is to build on their coalition, and that will have to include more rural white voters from across the country. Democrats are never going to win a majority of these voters. That’s the reality. But the difference between getting beat 80 to 20 and 72 to 28 is all the difference in the world.
