Is there a type of neurosurgery that allows doctors to insert a filter between the part of the brain that forms thoughts and the mouth that expresses them? Asking for a president.

On Monday, Joe Biden addressed the International Association of Fire Fighters Legislative Conference in Washington. There was a gaffe, because of course there was; this was a day ending in “y,” after all — the ones where the putative leader of the free world will invariably say something regrettable.

What made Monday special was that it was a meta-gaffe. It was Biden giving us a window into a potential “why” for the slurred words, bizarre lies and non-sequiturs that have marked his rhetoric as president — and, going into the 2024 campaign cycle, that presents serious trouble.

“But, folks, it’s been part of my career my whole life,” Biden said. “And I’m not going to go through it all, but you literally — my fire company at home saved my life. I came back from a trip, after being away for a couple of days, and — I had these terrible headaches. I was diagnosed with having a — well, anyway.
