Jack Shafer: Joe Biden Has Never Made His Peace With Words

From a Jack Shafer Fourth Estate column on politico.com headlined “Okay, President Biden, You’re a Wise Guy”:

Joe Biden has never made his peace with words. His failure has less to do with his stutter, which a New York Times op-ed once posited had given the president the superpower of empathy, and more to do with the way his brain skitters from one topic to another like crushed ice on a hot frying pan before ascending skyward as a vapor.
