    At the G7 Summit, French president Marcon pulls Joe aside for a quick chat about oil production, and Joe doesn't appear to register a single word said to him. In fact, he barely even glances at Marcon and only mumbles once in response, and the rest of time just stares blankly at his handler while Marcon searches Joe's face for a sign of comprehension.

    I think this has obviously become a case of "I can't admit I was wrong, so...."

    And when that perfect pitch came, he knocked it out of the park.

    Yeah, the entire "they lied!" is a putrid load of horse squeeze since SCOTUS nominees make a point of not answering hypothetical questions about how they would respond to a hypothetical case (or even a real one making its way through the courts), which doesn't stop politicians from both sides from asking them anyways.

    Yup - I've seen that contrast highlighted even on our local news.

    By the way -- one of our ABC Affiliates has it's own "fact checking" segment, and last night it was about the claim that 3 of the Justices lied about the way they would (or would not) vote on RvW.

    They laid out the claim, then, to my amazement, declared each of the allegations FALSE --- they did not lie, and it is not proper for them to reveal how they would vote on a hypothetical case not actually before them.

    As a matter of fact, it would have been GREAT to present this as "look at the cheat sheet Reagan had", to see the lefties blow up.

    (Kinda like Jessie Watters sets up the "on the street" interviews where he presents some outrageous statement, then reveals it was a Democrat who said it)

    See that padfolio Biden never seems to be without? It has hand-written notes on it. Maybe additional "YOU do this" instructions, too!

    And, rather than toss it aside, he hung onto it to scribble some notes, because there is no other writing material available in DC.
