    His judgment has been warped for many years. Nothing surprising here. It's pathetic and repugnant at the same time.

    •  "He used to be somebody" -- Like Ed Koch ... (0+ / 0-)

      I think it's called "Senior Disinhibition"  ... as plaque builds up in the brain and (perhaps) minor blood vessels rupture and bleed,  people of a certain age and temperament start saying "the first thing that comes to mind" -- where at an early stage of life their brains would have executed a rapid and complex set of calculations as to how their remarks might be received.

      Inside a warm and loving family tolerance and forbearance are called for.  But when the Old Fool has a national microphone ... pity and condescension are probably the best reaction to let show.

      •  Can't rec at this late stage. (0+ / 0-)

        But I would. I suspect you're right, and, as a resident of south Florida with some experience with the very old, I suspect that he also should no longer be driving.
