Our next president, Joe Biden, “will restore a bunch of norms,” vowed Barack Obama in November. And norms are exactly what America wants back. After boy genius Bill Clinton, blueblood heir to power George W. Bush, visionary hope-and-change merchant Barack Obama and disruptor Donald Trump, Joe Biden promises to be America’s first normie president — a guy whose pitch is, “I’m average.”
On Wednesday, Joe Biden walks into the barroom that is America like the rumpled fat man on the ’80s sitcom and everyone present joyously cries out, “Norm(ie)!” After the convulsions of the World War I era, and a very abnormal presidency held by Woodrow Wilson, the next president, Warren G. Harding, famously promised a Return to Normalcy. Biden is taking over because he represents “Normalcy 2: The Re-Normening.”
Amazing how quickly the government can build a wall when it's our ruling class being threatened as opposed to small towns on the southern border t.co/aA3p0ZvAWv

AFP reported Saturday that Biden has appointed Wendy Sherman, whose chief claim to fame is negotiating the notorious Iran nuclear deal, to be deputy secretary of state. It’s a classic example of failing up.
Biden said of Sherman and anti-Russia career diplomat Victoria Nuland, whom he named undersecretary for political affairs, that they “have secured some of the most defining national security and diplomatic achievements in recent memory. I am confident that they will use their diplomatic experience and skill to restore America’s global and moral leadership. America is back.”
