Insanity Wrap #212: Biden's Radical Agenda Might Just Be DOA

Insanity Wrap needs to know: What’s better than reading a CNN progressive tacitly admit that Biden can’t get much of anything through the Senate?
Answer: Reading it with your feet up and a cocktail.

Before we get to the sordid details, a quick preview of today’s Wrap.

  • “Death to Jews” is Twitter policy, apparently
  • Masks are the new awareness ribbons
  • Mostly peaceful protesting expanded to include coolers full of poop

And so much more.

Shall we begin?

Biden’s ’70s Show

Insanity Wrap Does Not Like the Penis Flattener

Biden’s big bipartisan-unity hope was … expanding the IRS?

Insanity Wrap will have more on Presidentish Joe Biden’s flailing agenda further down in today’s report, but first this from our Townhall colleague Ed Morrissey:

Joe Biden could hardly have picked a worse strategy for bipartisanship than a massive expansion of the same agency that targeted Republicans and grassroots organization less than a decade ago while Biden served as VP. Politico casts this as a “conservatives pounce” piece, but the real story here is political cluelessness so vast that it’s almost impossible to fathom entirely.

Plus: “You’d have to be deluded to think Republicans would be fans of heightened intrusiveness by IRS agents in the first place. That’s even more true after the Lois Lerner Follies, especially when Biden himself was among the potential beneficiaries.”

Allow Insanity Wrap to add an additional thought.

The tone-deafness of this administration is extreme but not shocking.

Biden is a Beltway creature through and through, for nearly as long as Insanity Wrap is old (we’re in our low 50s).

Compounding Porchlight’s inside-the-beltway thinking — if you’ll allow us to stretch the word “thinking” thin enough to cover whatever it is that Biden does with that brain — is that he’s surrounded himself with progressive radicals who do not give a single damn about what you or anyone else thinks, outside their statist clique.

So, no, Insanity Wrap is not at all surprised that the Biden White House thought they could find broad support for “growing” the IRS.

The Craziest Person in the World (Today)

Today’s craziest person in the world is anyone with a glimmer of hope that Twitter would equally apply its “safe space” rules and insist that the Ayatollah delete this tweet or lose his account.

Insanity Wrap is not holding our breath.

Wearing Mask in Car

Masks, Theater, and the New Awareness Ribbons

Insanity Wrap has always had a soft spot for theater of the absurd, but theater for the absurd is driving us nuts:

Awareness ribbons are so yesterday. Today it’s the mask that demonstrates caring, scientific acumen, and virtue. It also represents the political left. Forget driving around with a Biden/Harris bumper sticker on your car. Just wear a mask while driving alone and everyone will know who you voted for.

Words of wisdom from Dr. (Actual Medical Doctor) Brian C Joondeph, who also notes:

In just over a year, we’ve gone from none to two back to one mask. Now the CDC, playing the movie’s McGuffin, says ditch the masks, “Fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing.”

So why are people wearing masks in their cars while driving alone?

The answer is simple: People can see into cars almost as well as drivers can see out of them.

Insanity Wrap would wager that the number of overly-committed mask-wearers with tinted windows who still wear masks while driving approaches zero.

Your Daily Dose of Mostly Peaceful Protest

Much like anti-Asian violence, anti-Semitism in this country is almost entirely a product of the Left.

By “almost entirely,” Insanity Wrap of course means “entirely.”

Your Daily Dose of Mandated Unity

Patrisse Cullors Marxist
BLM Founder Says ‘Revolution’ Will Not Be Through Ballot Box, Calls U.S. Flag ‘Symbol Of Hate’

America has made Patrisse Cullors rich and, among a certain breed of idiots and/or liberty-haters, beloved.

A simple “Thank you for these many opportunities” would be sufficient, but instead, Cullors wants to tear down the country that afforded her such blessings.

Insanity Wrap posits that this is because the only thing Patrisse Cullors loathes more than America is herself.

Right back at ya, babe.

And Now For a Brief Moment of Sanity

Joe Biden faces crunch moment in his presidency

If you’re anything like Insanity Wrap — and may the Lord help you if you are — then you’re going to love/hate today’s brief moment of sanity.

Stephen Collinson writes today for CNN:

A crucial phase is now unfolding with President Joe Biden’s plans to redefine the concept of infrastructure, with huge government social spending, slowed by stumbling bipartisan talks with the GOP. Hopes of a sweeping voting reform law to counter Republican efforts in the states to restrict access to the ballot have no clear path forward in the Senate. A bipartisan drive for a relatively modest tightening of background checks for some gun buyers is at risk of fizzling. The best chance for a headline-grabbing win may be intense talks on police reform between Republican Sen. Tim Scott and two top Democrats. But hopes that a deal could happen before the anniversary of George Floyd’s death this week have faded. And the President is yet to unveil expected efforts to tackle immigration reform and climate change — two highly divisive policy areas.

To call Collinson supportive of Presidentish Biden’s statist agenda would be to call Insanity Wrap somewhat intrigued by the idea of a second Bloody Mary this morning.

But one doesn’t even need to read between the lines to see that Collinson has pretty much declared “Game Over” barely more than four months into Porchlight’s regime.

Insanity Wrap knows what you’re thinking: “I love that! What’s to hate?”

DOA agenda or not, we’re stuck with Porchlight or his successor for another 44 months.

That second Bloody Mary sounds better than ever.
