"To the cynical and darkly clever people who run the Democratic Party, Biden's fading intellect is not a handicap. It's an opportunity," Carlson said during the opening monologue of his Fox News show. "Joe Biden is weak, and he’s getting weaker. Ask anyone who knows him, or who’s watched him carefully over the past 50 years. Biden is noticeably more confused now than he was even last spring, when he entered the race."

"Why is this good news for the Democratic establishment in Washington?" Carlson asked. "Because it means they can control him. That’s one reason the other candidates were so eager to swing in behind Biden the instant he won a state."

"All of these people are happy for the same reason: Joe Biden is fading and uncertain," Carlson said. "Weak leaders are vessels for the stronger forces around him. And no force in American politics is stronger — more aggressive or better organized — than the narrow little interest groups that comprise the Democratic coalition."

"With [former New York City Mayor Michael] Bloomberg out and [Sen. Elizabeth] Warren humiliated, there is nothing left in American politics to stop Joe Biden's ascent to the Democratic nomination and domination of the party," Carlson said. "So get ready for Joe Biden. He's more threatening than he looks."

Biden took surprise Super Tuesday victories in Texas, Maine, Minnesota and Massachusetts, while also winning decisively in Virginia, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee and Alabama. Sen.
