Advice to Biden: don’t pre-empt Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy

Posted 18 January 2021 at 9:15 am


Oh, no, what cataclysmic event is pre-empting the tail end of Wheel of Fortune I wondered last week? Why, there’s a very, very familiar political face (three decades).

He’s without an official office (I checked the U.S. Constitution) and already he believes he is more important than Jeopardy!? This has got to be super important.

I unmuted and in less than a sentence, he made it clear to me that he had absolutely nothing important to say. The same as his entire political career. After blathering on for over half an hour (re-muted and left the room) it amounted to less than a paragraph long press release from the DNC that was in the news cycle for about 15 minutes.

What was CBS thinking? Are they trying to push to the head of the line for “exclusive” interviews with the incoming regime? (Old stuff, most of them; clearly Obama re-treads). Joe… you need a new Communications Director. Suggestion: get one in the Jeopardy demographic.

The only saving grace was that it wasn’t Chuck Schumer. Yet.

It’s going to be a long four years.
