Back in 2012, I asked a relatively simple question about the presidential race:
The way Republicans are talking about their presidential candidates, it seems there are two questions to ask about the likely outcome of the campaign.
1) Will they charge ahead full speed and drive that bus off the cliff?
2) Will they charge ahead full speed and drive that bus of the cliff and into a river of hungry crocodiles?
Later in the campaign, when things were getting worse, I mulled the situation further:
The Republicans were going to … (here I go again) … drive that bus off the cliff and into a river of hungry crocodiles next to a nuclear plant during an earthquake just as the tsunami wave reaches 50 meters carrying a school of piranhas being chased by great white sharks with al-Qaeda tatooed on their dorsal fins and plutonium bombs between their teeth.
And here we are now in 2016:
Hey, Thelma! Hello, Louise. See you at the bottom.
Isn’t it ironic the Susan Sarandon is the driver?
