Tuesday was Election Day in a handful of states, and Joe Biden went to Delaware to vote in person. That is, an American president voted in person, on Election Day, in his home state. You’re probably wondering why I am even writing about such a mundane thing.
I would be wondering too if I hadn’t seen all the hot takes on Wednesday. The same deplorables who were fine with TFG charging the US taxpayers for golf carts for Secret Service agents at his own golf courses were suddenly apoplectic over this:
Joe Biden flew on Air Force One to vote in Delaware’s primary today.
Why didn't he mail in his ballot?

Biden flew Air Force One to Delaware to vote in person yesterday for a state auditor race. He could have voted in person when he was there on Saturday but didn’t. He could have gotten an absentee ballot but didn’t. He chose to spend thousands of tax dollars instead this way

I have to say though that I am glad to see that the GOP is reconsidering its opposition to voting by mail.
Naturally the worst reporters took their cues from these GOP deplorables:
Joe Biden took Air Force 1 and the accompanying security detail for a few hours trip to Delaware to vote.

In case you are puzzled as to why you are supposed to be OUTRAGED!!! over that, here’s a more detailed explanation:
Biden didn’t answer when asked why he hadn’t simply requested and returned an absentee ballot. Delaware also offered in-person early voting on Saturday, when Biden was at his home in Wilmington.

I like how his refusal to answer their stupid questions is portrayed as something sinister:

WHAT IS JOE BIDEN HIDING!!?
Ooh ooh, what about this one?

That’s a sick burn that Joe will probably never recover from.
The press is failing us in matters both large and small.
The great k.d. lang can sing us out:

OK, wingers, be glad he’s not from Alaska.
GOP being hypocritical and dumb and the MSM eagerly aping the trope? Oh, its Tuesday.
