Chait's right. It's the idiocracy. It isn't just a movie anymore, and it isn't just fantasy. It's the Republican Party:
As low as my estimation of the intelligence of the Republican electorate may be, I did not think enough of them would be dumb enough to buy his act. And, yes, I do believe that to watch Donald Trump and see a qualified and plausible president, you probably have some kind of mental shortcoming. As many fellow Republicans have pointed out, Donald Trump is a con man. What I failed to realize — and, I believe, what so many others failed to realize, though they have reasons not to say so — is just how easily so many Republicans are duped.
Those great Enlightenment thinkers and politicians, the sanctified "Founders" of this troubled republic, would not be amused.
The Establishment: Playing the man card.
Infidel753: Erasing lesbianism.
Occasional Planet: Feeling the Blunt.
And for your progressive music pleasure, how about "Something About England" by The Clash?
