Now, let’s ask what should be an obvious question: What are the odds that a guy opens fire at a mass gathering and all three of the people he shoots turn out to have criminal records? Doesn’t this tell you something about who is engaging in these “mostly peaceful” protests?

Althouse features two posts today about the last presidential team - and their lack of quick decision making.
Joe Biden is still working on his vice presidential pick - after first saying it would be announced August 1.
Why the delay?
This kind of approach — being openly meditative about the issue at hand, with a penchant for missing his own deadlines as he mulls his options — is in line with how Mr. Biden has made other big political choices throughout his career. Those who have worked with him over the years describe nonlinear decision-making processes with input from allies and family members, a barrage of questions from Mr. Biden, and a habit of extending deadlines in a way that leaves some Democrats anxious and annoyed, while others say it brings him to a well-considered decision, eventually.
But Biden is a speed demon compared to Barack Obama - still working on his memoir about his eight-year term. It might take eight years for him to write.
If you're looking for decisive leadership, it's not on the Democratic side.
