What kind of dribbling buffoon would be too scared to take a test which is supposedly easy?

Blind partisanship has resulted in this post being completely devoid of any logical thought. Scared? Umm no. That’s a high school level argument.

The American people (rightly or wrongly) believe that of the two candidates, Biden is the more mentally competent to do the job. There are polls out just the other week on that very question. Ergo, there Is no upside to Biden taking this test. If he passes he just proves what the people think they already know.

And, just to complicate matters, Russia and China have their favourite boys too. (Shades of, ”Russia if you are listening”)?

“Russia Continues Interfering in Election to Help Trump, U.S. Intelligence Says

But a new assessment says China would prefer to see the president defeated, though it is less clear how much Beijing is doing to meddle in the 2020 campaign to help Joseph R. Biden Jr.

Those conclusions were included in a statement released by William R. Evanina, the director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center.

But officials briefed on the intelligence said that Russia was the far graver, and more immediate, threat. While China seeks to gain influence in American politics, its leaders have not yet decided to wade directly into the presidential contest, however much they may dislike Mr. Trump, the officials said”.

300 plus million people. You'd have to expect that somewhere amongst them are some really smart, decent, and capable people. But, the entire political system works to ensure they don't get anywhere.

Rest of world...much the same.

This has over 50 million views on Facebook, very creative:
Some might be surprised that I posted that back in April :eek:

Why would decent smart capable and successful people want to subject themselves to the "process" to get appointed and end up mixing and dealing with daily the cohort that are already there? Not much of an incentive.

There’s a sequel that was published last week. Only 114,000 views so far:
As amusing and probably prescient as those clips are, I can't help noting that most of the participants are aging hippy types. Dunno if that reflects those who participated, or some weird skewing by the compilers.

Oh no not the dreaded ageing hippies. 🙃🤣🥱 I remember being lovingly voted one of those once just because I ate salad at work for lunch. 😋

Don’t forget the poo. I think the full quote from my school was nah nah ni poo poos.

Aaah. “The left is demented”. The right is intelligent”. I feel like I’ve been transported back in time to when I was at primary school. All that’s missing is nah-nah nah nah-nah 🤣

Me too 😯. In my case it was when my sister picked me up from the airport after a long overseas trip, no haircut the whole time, no shower after a flight back from London and I’d gotten a nose ring. OK, I made the last bit up, but apparently I had “let myself go like an aging hippie” 😱

DJT is interesting. We all expect politicians to lie. But the difference with DJT is that we expect most politicians lie about what they say they are going to do (i.e “non core promises”!!) DJT, if you believe the mainstream media (exc. Fox) seems to lie about the things he says he has done. But maybe he lies less about what he’s going to do 🤣

I couldn’t care less whether a Democrat or a Republican win the election. Not my country, not my politics. However I can’t stand seeing a pathological liar and someone who has so mismanaged the pandemic carry on for another 4 years. He is in a league all of his own. Interesting to see many Republicans who can no longer tolerate him as well :(

Moderation seems a dirty word in US politics, they have managed a dead heat in the race to the bottom and extremism is their catch cry.
