As Twitchy reported, President Joe Biden signed into law Tuesday the Democrats’ “climate, health, and tax” bill that a week ago we were all calling the Inflation Reduction Act. We’ve noted a glimmer of hope in the mainstream media lately; CNN’s Kaitlan Collins asked Karine Jean-Pierre how Biden will use his “string of wins” to help Dems win big in November. Politico’s Sam Stein last week remarked on Biden’s “deep, personally fulfilling day” after he authorized funds to help veterans exposed to burn pits. Liberals are finally seeing a turnaround and are praying that Biden can keep the momentum going.

Over at the New York Times, fashion director and critic Vanessa Friedman has noted that “Aviator Joe” has returned after beating COVID (twice) and enjoying a week’s vacation in South Carolina. (She forgot to mention the anniversary of the fall of Afghanistan.)

Friedman writes:

Aviator Joe is back — just in time to take his quasi-victory lap.

Forget the glowing eyes of Dark Brandon. As President Joseph R. Biden Jr. arrives back in Washington, D.C., to enter the White House to sign the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, it is his Ray-Ban 3025s — the dark, wire-rimmed, teardrop-shaped sunglasses he has made his signature — that once again seem the emblem of the man.

Though the aviators and the big grin, public-service-is-cool persona they represent never exactly went away, they receded into the background, relegated mostly to bike rides and similar low-eyeball appearances as the president wrestled with Covid (policy, variants, his own case), the war in Ukraine, inflation and other grim issues. At the G7 outdoors family photo in June, he went tieless (like everyone else) and aviator-less. At the White House Easter Egg Roll, the first since the pandemic, the glasses were similarly gone.

To make sure we’re getting this straight … the New York Times had its fashion director write an article about Biden’s sunglasses.

Remember that video where he never blinked for like, 30 seconds?

When Biden’s sunglasses are on, you know he means business. It’s a ray of hope for the Left.
