About LaptopGate

  1. Without any implicating correspondence from Joe himself, I view this as a “meh” matter. In politics, trading on names and positions is common practice. I understand that there are those who believe that Presidents should be free from any and all appearances of corruption, but that seems like kind of a fantasy dream in the Age of Trump. So, claims from the right that this is some sort of “proof” that Biden is an Evil Creature fall flat.
  2. On the other hand, the left seems indignant at the mere suggestion that Joe Biden is anything other than a male version of Mother Theresa, which is odd because of Joe’s long history of prevarication. Honestly, if there were no allegations at all, over nearly 50 years in public life, that Biden traded on name recognition or power at all…. well, THAT would be more shocking than what’s on the laptop.
  1. Watergate. Nixon would have finished his term without issue.
