So is Virginia Heffernan really making the case that Joe Biden is an ok guy to be president because he’s a hot mess and that somehow ties into Catholic theology?
An idea from progressive Catholic theology might be useful for understanding Joe Biden and why we need him: pater patitur — the father suffers.
Biden, unlike Trump, doesn’t inflict suffering. But nor does he suffer “for” us.
He suffers *with* us. https://t.co/9UKMzqYecT
