The Ham has given his vital endorsement! Sean Penn has always been a… progressive, I guess. Sort of progressive with an anarchist leaning? He’s a white dude and a contrarian, so I guess I sort of thought he was a Bernie-or-Buster or something like that. But the Ham has gotten more pragmatic as he’s aged. Weird. Anyway, literally no one was waiting for Sean Penn’s presidential endorsement, but he gave it all the same. It turns out his political ambivalence changed to passion when he discovered Joe Biden’s coronavirus-response plan:
Just heard Biden on Covid strategy. He’s dead-on. I’ve been working test sites since day one. Talking to Fauci & all the top scientists. It’s EVERYTHING that will get America back to work and FLOURISHING. I’d been ambivalent about Biden. My ambivalence is gone. Biden for America.

Biden’s coronavirus strategy is not some new plan – Biden has had a verbal and written plan for months that we need free widespread testing, mask mandates and a huge economic stimulus to protect jobs and businesses. The GOP’s coronavirus plan is the legislative equivalent of a sad clown noise.
Anyway, it just reminds me that “Democrats fall in love, Republicans fall in line.” You don’t actually have to convince yourself that Joe Biden is the best, the most, the greatest. You can just say that he’s a good guy and he’ll be a better president than Fascist Baby Fists. In case you do need to “fall in love,” basically the worst thing Republicans can say about him is that he’s buried two children and he loves and adores his living son who has substance abuse issues. And he’s the kind of man who will do this:

Oh, and Brad Pitt did a voiceover for a new Biden ad.
