I’m the child of two Ph.D. professors, so I learned early on that, while they might use their titles in academia when teaching, they generally didn’t use it in any other aspect of their lives. It was commonly understood that it wasn’t done.

So we come to Jill Biden, who insists on being called “Doctor” outside of her community college, even with the lesser Ed.D degree. Most in academia would giggle at how pretentious that is (if it wasn’t Jill Biden). Her ‘position paper’ for her degree was also not exactly a sterling piece of work.

It’s sad, really. As Joe Biden explained it, she wanted the credential for its sake alone.

From Yahoo:

President-elect Joe Biden once explained that his wife sought the degree purely for status reasons: “She said, ‘I was so sick of the mail coming to Sen. and Mrs. Biden. I wanted to get mail addressed to Dr. and Sen. Biden.’ That’s the real reason she got her doctorate,” Joe Biden has said.

Now, in general, prior to Jill Biden, liberal media like the New York Times style guide wouldn’t use the term “Doctor” for non-physicians – their guide explained that the “Doctor” title is used for non-physicians “only if it is germane to the holder’s primary current occupation (academic, for example, or laboratory research).”

But yet here we are with liberal media now violating that general understanding because it’s Jill Biden.

So I wonder what they would think of this picture, about which I definitely have some thoughts.

I’m having Edith Wilson thoughts and pretensions to the office about this one. Edith Wilson is widely understood to have taken over to some degree after her husband President Woodrow Wilson had a stroke and she misled people as to his capacity, making decisions in his place.

This appears to have been taken at the presidential desk aboard Air Force One. You can see Joe Biden’s Air Force One jacket on the chair.

That’s the presidential desk on Air Force One
