Watch That Bike (See what I did there?)

It’s gonna be a long four-years as our Failed Political Press, addicted to a scandal of the day goes cold turkey:

I don’t think President Handsome Joe Biden even got a honeymoon from the press before they went after the bike and watch.  Meanwhile Tiger Beat on the Potomac’s email thingie (New! Improved! More Gossip!) leads with (checks notes) Boring Joe:

The reviews from the media came in fast and furious: The Biden presidency is orderly, normal, even boring — and it’s so refreshing.

Perhaps this was a genuine expression of relief after a wrenching two-and-a-half-month transition for the country. But who’d like to place odds on how long it lasts before boring-good becomes boring-boring for the media?

First, a quick sampling of the commentary earlier this week exulting over all the normalcy:

“Biden’s inauguration offered what America needs: A ‘return to normalcy,’” read the headline on Max Boot’s WaPo column.

“Mostly, a normal, sane, empathetic presidential voice. FINALLY,” tweeted Jennifer Rubin after Biden’s inauguration speech.

Then there was the much remarked-upon contrast of JEN PSAKI’s studiously polite inaugural press briefing with SEAN SPICER’s “largest audience ever” debut at the White House podium four years ago.

“Instead of a clown show, white house briefings will return to the hallowed american tradition of being completely boring and useless. Inspiring!” noted Business Insider media reporter Steven Perlberg.

JOHN DICKERSON even penned a column in The Atlantic with this lead paragraph: “Joe Biden has a real shot at being a boring president. It will require constant work. Many forces of commerce and human nature are arrayed against him, and countless obstacles stand in his path. But if the country is lucky, entire days will pass without the president’s activities agitating the public mind.”

We could go on.

Please don’t.

We point this out not to argue that the break from four years of mayhem isn’t a much-needed breather, only to offer a bit of a reality check: Boring is the enemy of reporters. For all the talk from the right of liberal media bias, its real bias is for a juicy story.

That scans as true.

If the Biden administration shows some success at being boring, our bet is that the D.C. press corps will do everything in its power to make it not so. A warning to the president’s press shop: The beast may pause to take in its new habitat, but it will soon need to be fed.

And that last paragraph is the one that counts, that’s a warning. It’s not my job to advise the professionals at 1600, but if I were them, I’d be totally transparent about what they found as they took over: all the crime, negligence, incompetence, and pettiness of the previous administration is a good story for the press and will keep Hair Füror’s impeachment in perspective, too. Putting him on trial in the court of public opinion is the best way to apply pressure to the goobers who are going to claim that leading a coup is not impeachable.

    OMG!! 70 something year old Joe Biden takes care of his health and not gorges himself on fast food like some ogre!
    The humanity!
    No, seriously, the humanity of man who wants to take care of himself, and others.

    And he drives a (checks handheld device) Corvette!

    Four hundred and fifty (450) horsepower four hundred twenty seven (427) cubic inch (cid) V-8 engine with three carburetors and dual-fire ignition turning a four (4) speed overdrive General Motors “Turbo” 400 Turbomatic automatic transmission and an eight (8) inch driveline to a 5×12 positrac drive differential, delivering about a hundred and sixty-five (165) horsepower to each of the rear wheels. Goes from F to E as fast as zero (0) to sixty (60).

    Damned elitist.

        I once owned a special order LeMans. Had the Corvette undercarriage before Corvette took it. Hard as heck to buy parts – all the counter guys at the part store would take a look and try to sell me Tempest parts.
        It was a retired taxi from a state capitol.
        Thing drove like a dream. I miss that car.

        LOL ~ I had an Aspen wagon for a while, but a special order on a commercial – Interceptor (cop car), taxi – frame and drivetrain. Smoke startled hot-rodders off the light.

        Had a GTO for a while, pretty much the same as Le Mans, but I put an Olds 442 in it. My only real “hot-rod”, mostly the rest were pickups. I did swap out a 305 Jimmie V-6 for a 500 Cadillac in an old bus I lived in for a long time: dual four-barrel high-rises, custom headers and twenty-two foot straight pipes ending in 12 inch turbos. Can you hear it 😎?

        I’m not jealous at all. From the January 2009 Automobile magazine cover, “Automobile of the Year: Nissan’s GT-R turns the sports car world upside down”.

        I got mine on 29 August 2008, first one delivered from a Dallas suburban dealer, and it’s been a joy to drive ever since. I’m the quickest 80-year-old geezer on northern Dallas roads.

        Back in the 80s Ford had a (relatively) high performance Taurus with the suffix SHO. Yamaha engine and stick shift. After a few years, it only came with an automatic. The latest Corvette doesn’t offer a stick.

        Just more indications of our decline as a Great Power.

    Tiger Beat should beat it. Go live in Miami and mold.
