Ohhhh yeah — the debate is on tonight, Jack!
And if you didn’t hear the big news, allow me to shovel it into your ears: Joe Biden’s picked a campaign manager to lead him to electoral victory.
The lucky leader is none other than…Jen O’Malley.
Formerly, Jen crafted the campaign of Beto O’Rourke, who offered things such as this (call the clip a third-party remix):
Additionally, Jen’s a vocal advocate for the confiscation of America’s most popular hunting rifle.
Ya know — a bit of this:
So…take all that, and combine it with the following…
Joe Biden had a “virtual town hall” today.
It went about how you’d expect.

And what do ya got?
I’d say a pretty interesting gift to the world.
Previously, Joe had supported a ban on the AR-15, but not a removal of it from Americans’ homes.
So where is he now on the issue?
He certainly hasn’t moved further to the Right.
Here’s The Washington Free Beacon:
Upon receiving O’Rourke’s endorsement, Biden said the former congressman would lead his administration’s gun-control efforts. The Democratic frontrunner has tacked far to the left on Second Amendment issues as he consolidated support from his former rivals. In September, he told CNN he did not believe it was legal to force Americans to turn in firearms they legally owned.
As noted by the Free Beacon, he also — as you might well know — believes in a bit of the ol’ “You’re full of sh–“:
On Tuesday, when confronted by an autoworker about his embrace of O’Rourke’s mandatory buyback proposal, Biden denied that he supported confiscation and then cursed out the man and threatened to fight him.
This is insane. Beyond telling the guy he’s “full of shit” Biden gets in his face and then says something about “take this outside.” Mainstream media can’t run cover for this much longer.
Anyone know who the man is? Would love to have him on the show.

The confiscation thing, so far as I could tell, didn’t do Beto any favors. Will Joe give it a shot?
I’d say don’t put it past him — he’s kept things fresh, even where getting his own name right is concerned:
They allowed Joe Biden to speak for a whole seven minutes in front of his crowd of about 500 in St Louis today. During that short time he called himself “an Obiden-Bama Democrat” pic.twitter.com/UeZHiNCmEN

What do you think about the enlistment of Jen? #GeniusMove?
Let us all know in the Comments section.
Of course, while it’s anyone’s guess how he’ll treat the AR-15, Biden made one thing clear during his union worker argument: The guy’s definitely down on the AR-14.
