    Default How About A Contest For Who Can Stay Awake The Longest?



    Jack Palance won the Academy Award:




    Biden cannot stay awake long enough to win the nomination:

    Presidential candidate Joe Biden said he would challenge President Trump to a push-up contest on-air if the commander-in-chief questions his physical or mental faculties on the 2020 debate stage.

    Biden appeared on "Morning Joe" for a Tuesday interview with co-host Mika Brzezinski and said he would immediately retaliate if Trump started poking fun at his behavior.

    "I would say, come on Donald, come on, man. How many push-ups do you want to do here, pal? I mean jokingly," Biden said.

    Incidentally, months before the 2016 election I speculated on the odds against the next president surviving in office:

    William Henry Harrison [1841] Died in office

    Zachary Taylor [1849-1850] 9 years after Harrison

    Abraham Lincoln [1861-1865] 15 years after Taylor

    James A. Garfield [1881] 16 years after Lincoln

    William McKinley [1897-1901] 20 years after Garfield

    Warren G. Harding [1921-1923] 22 years after McKinley

    Franklin D. Roosevelt [1933-1945] 22 years after Harding

    John F. Kennedy [1961-1963] 18 years after FDR

    Starting with Taylor in 1850 and ending with JFK in 1963 you get an average of 17.4 years between presidents dying in office.

    NOTE: Ronald Reagan beat the odds when he survived an assassination attempt in 1981. That was 18 years after JFK died in office.

    Trump took office 53 years after JFK.

    Biden was born in 1942. That means he will take office 57 years after JFK. Bottom line: The odds against Sleepy Joe surviving in office are getting longer should he somehow defeat President Trump in 2020. Assuming Biden is not full-bore senile before 2024 the odds against him surviving in office a second term are prohibitive.

    On the plus side, Sleepy Joe’s advancing age make him assassination proof. Think about it!
