AIM's Kincaid Suggests Biden Is Going Senile
Topic: Accuracy in Media

In the midst of whining that the "major media" will purportedly crown Joe Biden the winner of Thursday's debate with Joe Biden and dredging up ancient allegations of plagiarism, Cliff Kincaid turns his Oct. 9 Accuracy in Media column to the subject of whether Biden is going senile:

But don’t expect the major media to remind voters of Biden’s history of plagiarism. They are gearing up to declare him the winner of Thursday’s vice-presidential debate, no matter what happens.

But another taboo subject remains: Does the so-called “Gaffe-O-Matic” Vice President suffer from Alzheimer’s or some form of dementia?

Henry I. Miller has written in Forbes that Biden’s utterances “suggest some sort of dementia.” Biden, who will be 70 in November, “frequently has fumbled and bumbled in his public remarks,” says Miller.

Conservative writer Ben Hart says, “Biden raised eyebrows most recently when he insisted in a speech to a predominantly black audience that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are ‘gonna put y’all back in chains.’ But this is just the latest in an endless catalogue of bizarre statements by Joe Biden, who often doesn’t seem to know where he is or even what century he’s living in. Much of the time, he appears to be confused, addled.”

He adds, “One or two crazy statements here and there would not be so alarming. But Biden is now saying crazy things every time he speaks, every time he opens his mouth. I actually listened to Biden’s entire ‘y’all in chains’ speech, and very little of it made any sense at all.”

Little of what Kincaid makes sense, beyond being an expression of hatred of anything not as far-right as he is. But have we accused him of being senile? No.
