The lazy, shallow arguments from the right for Joe Biden's supposed moral superiority-
Last night, Joe Biden read a speech off a teleprompter. While no one has ever really denied his ability to read verbatim for a few minutes, this was treated as one of the greatest acts in political history. Many on the right proclaimed it a “home run” and said that he “far exceeded expectations.” This is, of course, misleading, as the claims about Biden’s mental prowess center on his abilities when he’s not being guided along by a speechwriter.
Past that, there were other claims from those ostensibly on the right that simply don’t begin to pass muster. In fact, it reveals a lot about how shallow conservative politics has been for so long.
