Has the Left Demoted Joe Biden from “Useful Idiot” to Just Plain “Idiot”?

A couple of days ago I theorized that the reason you are seeing all this document stuff is that it’s a way to push Biden aside without implicating anyone else in the administration or the party.

The media’s sudden interest in the story suggests I wasn’t just whistling dixie. Ed Morrissey:

 the coverage of Joe Biden’s classified-documents scandal has shifted in tone — noticeably. Until yesterday’s appointment of a special counsel by Merrick Garland, every major media outlet treated this scandal as a cynical GOP-generated distraction from Donald Trump’s legal fight over classified material held at Mar-a-Lago.

At CNN this morning, however, Don Lemon — Don Frickin’ Lemon! — scolded Chuck Schumer for trying to blow off serious questions about Biden’s behavior

Surely you jest but there’s more

Let’s take a look at the coverage on CBS News this morning, where the hosts expressed considerable frustration with the White House and especially  press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre. “For the second straight day,” anchor Errol Barnett notes, “[s]he has not answered a single question, outside of a prewritten statement by the president’s lawyers.”

And that was before still more classified documents were found in his home (hopefully he keeps it locked too)

Our side has had a real field day with this stuff:

The Biden classified documents scandal is not a serious scandal. The botched withdrawal from Afghanistan is a serious scandal. Biden’s refusal to faithfully execute his duties as president of the United States by securing the southern border is a serious scandal. The Biden family pay-to-play escapades are a serious scandal. And the weaponization of the FBI and the intelligence community to interfere in the 2020 election and hand Biden the presidency is a serious scandal. This is not.

Laughable. Delicious. Outrageous. It is all those things and becomes more so by the day, with news that more classified documents are reposed in a residential garage, in addition to the closet at a D.C. think tank. And the story just becomes funnier the more the corrupt press tries to distinguish Biden’s possession of classified documents from Trump’s because Biden himself on video declared the possession of classified documents in Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home to be “just totally irresponsible.”

Newsweek smells a rat:

But the timing of the leak from various federal law enforcement actors now, just as Biden is beginning the second half of his term, suggests there is real internal turmoil over at the Democratic National Committee (DNC). Perhaps someone at the DNC instructed Deep State spooks that now would be a particularly propitious time to leak sordid details to the media. Perhaps someone at the DNC thought that Joe Biden did his job by shepherding his party through the midterms without succumbing to the much-feared “red wave,” but that he is now disposable and should be replaced at the ballot in 2024 by Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA). Loath though I am to speculate, it is difficult to think of a sounder explanation as to why, only now, all of this is coming out.

Biden was useful in his time but in the end the marxist left is a group who believes in utility. As soon as a useful idiot is no longer useful they are discarded (see Cheney Liz). The only thing Joe Biden is really skilled at besides collecting his 10% is going after his enemies so if you are the left and want Biden to go quietly into the sunset you need something like this to get it done.

It’s a sad thing to watch a useful idiot be demoted to just plain idiot but nobody deserves it more than Joe Biden.
