That's what Joe Biden's handlers have told him to do with his campaigning:
With nine days left before the 2020 election, former Vice President Joe Biden is off the campaign trail without any in-person events scheduled.
On Sunday, Biden’s campaign called a “lid” on in-person campaigning for the day. A “lid” usually also means the campaign will not conduct press conferences or dispense press releases the remainder of the day. Biden’s campaign clarified that this was not a “full lid” since the former vice president would speak to supporters late-Sunday evening at a virtual “I will vote” concert.
Was the lid called because of a few recent, and very tentative, attempts by MSM types to ask about the Biden Inc. scandal? Or was it precipitated by Biden recently confusing Donald Trump with George W. Bush--or was that the first Bush, or even George Washington? Slow Joe's not telling, and may not even be sure:
The amazing part of the video is that Jill doesn't even bat an eyelash as Joe babbles on. It's almost preternatural.
Then again, maybe the lid is part of the Dem strategy to use Covid to scare people out of voting in person--presumably Republicans, who are overwhelmingly the people who vote in person. Meanwhile, the strategy supposes that Dems will vote by mail, swamping those few unafraid GOPers who show up in person.
Two problems with that.
The first is that all the polls show that the vast majority of GOPers simply aren't afraid of showing up in public--but Dems are.
The second is that this strategy presumes that, despite the well documented lack of Dem enthusiasm for Biden, Dems will somehow summon the energy to get off the couch, purchase a stamp, locate a site to mail their ballot, and fill out the ballot correctly. A tall order!
Meanwhile Trump is crisscrossing the country with his high energy campaigning.
