[Ed. – Right: genuinely addled]
Ed Rendell, former Pennsylvania governor and DNC chairman, defended Joe Biden against the negative attention the 2020 Democratic front-runner has been getting for his many recent misstatements, and argued that the average American is unfazed by gaffes from politicians.
Conceding that he is a Biden supporter, Rendell wrote, “I believe that the former vice president is a decent, honorable man who possesses the right values for America and cares deeply about all people,” and would “restore rationality and decency to the American presidency.” …
Rendell said that members of the media and political junkies keep close track of every misstep from presidential candidates; but the average voter, he went on, are not paying such close attention. “Average Americans don’t think that what we insiders consider a gaffe truly is a gaffe — or they really don’t care whether candidates are prone to gaffes,” he wrote.
