"Stout Bermuda high" sounds like an interesting rum drink.

I clicked on mt's link to politico above.  It has one section that puzzles me:

===================================

Earlier this month in an interview, he displayed the sort of jargon aphasia one associates with a stroke victim: “Surplus military equipment for law enforcement—they don’t need that. The last thing you need is an up-armored Humvee coming into a neighborhood, it’s like the military invading. They don’t know anybody. They become the enemy. They’re supposed to be protecting these people.”

===================================

How did Biden's statement "display(ed) the sort of jargon aphasia
one associates with a stroke victim:
"

Whut? Seems pretty lucid to me.

 On CNN about a week ago, I was watching Biden speak with a reporter. Don’t remember her question, but I remember his answer, which struck me as odd.

Biden: I saw that on TV this morning....while I was buttoning my shirt....

 OH MY GOD!!! Biden buttons his shirt while watching TV? Only demented people do that!!!

You are going to die on the hill that says 2+2=5?  I guess the rabbit hole goes pretty deep.  Scary stuff.

 look at the responses.  they're pretty reasonable.  Are you going to die on the hill that the only math is first grade arithmetic problems?

I’m more comfortable with teachers explaining how 2 plus 2 can equal 5 — helping students understand the difference between rational unorthodoxy and the kind of disinformation Orwell meant when he used the equation — than I’d be if they casually conflated a Goering paraphrase with Soviet five-year plan propaganda.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry

 if you're serious, you might want to cry for your own inability to grasp the reasonableness of the responses you got. And cry for your dystopian interpretation of these legitimate answers.

This was primo trolling from the get-go.  The very brilliant and awesome ConceptualJames is a math Ph.D., so he knows there are legit answers in which 2+2 does not equal 4, as sprout has very simply and elegantly demonstrated.  So he threw the chum in the water so that he and others like yourself could come back and accuse the "woke" of being like Nazis or Big Brother when people pointed out this very simple concept.

so congrats on some big-time trolling.

Ok. Granted, he took care of the heat but Max gotta do sumthing about the humidity.

If he does, I will nominate him for Maplewood 
"Citizen of the Year."
