Near-Octogenarian Joe Biden Snags Nearly Two Dozen Endorsements in Florida

Sure, it’s low-hanging fruit, but there’s a pretty solid punchline in here.

With the 2020 election running us down like a weeks-hungry jackal, many Americans are having a hard time finding the humor in all of it.

To be fair, it can be tough at times.  This world is growing increasingly turbulent, and, as we age, we naturally find ourselves growing wiser than many who are making much larger decisions than we are.

We also discover that someone’s age might matter, especially when we are talking about taking the weight of the world on their shoulders.  President Donald Trump, for instance, is 72 years of age – a number that people in presidential politics don’t really bat an eye at.

But Joe Biden, who’s 78 years old, is facing some scrutiny about his age, (as well as a litany of other issues), with the President himself getting a jab in every now and then with his “Sleepy Joe” sentiments.

Now, in a punchline fit for one of the better seasons of The Simpsons, near-octogenarian Biden has picked up a boatload of endorsements in the national retirement hub of Florida.

Twenty-three Democrat legislators endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden on Friday in a political power move that rang loud and clear.

“It’s a diverse list of supporters that without question shows his support here,” Broward County Rep. Joe Geller, who led the endorsements, told Politico. “Not only do I think he can win, but I think he can unite the factions of the Democratic Party.”

Geller has reportedly been preparing the move weeks in advance of Biden’s 2020 campaign announcement. Already, the Obama vice president has rocketed to the top of a long list of would-be challengers to President Donald Trump, leading even the popular Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in the polls — by dozens of points.

Now let’s just wait and see if The Daily Show steals my joke on Monday.

Biden is leading the 2020 democratic pack after a delayed entrance and accusations of inappropriate intimate contact by seven women.
