So NBC is reporting that Joe Biden’s finally going to announce he’s running or not running for president within the next 48 hours.

Yeah, it’s about time the word came from the vice president rather than the shadowy army of retainers and “close friends” and wannabe friends and Hillary-haters and Republicans and all the journalists who listen to all these people, who have been pushing the Biden “story” along for months now.

If nothing happens in the next 48 hours, I think we’re justified in entirely ignoring the next blare of sirens on this front of the invisible primary.
