For John, BLUF: It seems Vice President Biden has glided through life, as if half conscious, and it may have finally caught up with him. Nothing to see here; just move along.

Here is the lede plus one:
Pundits are beginning to agree that Joe Biden's campaign is in a death spiral.My wife called it months ago. Impeachment was an "in kind" contribution by Speaker Pelosi to the Trump re-election campaign.
"Biden’s campaign is running on fumes," writes The Daily Beast's Sam Stein. "A candidate with all the trappings of a traditional frontrunner—the long résumé, party backing, relevant experience, and steady poll numbers—suddenly is on electoral life support."
So what happened? Should Biden's campaign crash and burn there will be much speculation over what went wrong. How did the frontrunner go from smooth sailing to the nomination to an epic disaster?
Well, I think the answer is already clear.
When you look at the Real Clear Politics tracking in the early states of Iowa and New Hampshire, you will notice a pattern: Biden starts losing support, or some other candidate starts to rise, around mid-September 2019.
Mid-September happens to be the same time the whistleblower complaint that launched Trump's impeachment became public.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
