The Play’s the … You Know … the Thing
Perhaps the Dems are pushing a doddering and forgetful white man with a young female heir because they are trying to tell a story; the party is pathetic and a little crazy as it wanders in the wilderness, cast out by an ungrateful public. It is also ancient, white and white-haired. It will be rescued by the loyal young female who takes the old white guy in but is the actual ruler.
It’s King Lear for millennials and a psychodrama that appeals to people who still love the old white guy and to those who can’t wait to see him leave the stage both because you’ve elected the story to play out in real-time.Published in General
If we’re living in a narrative, we ought to credit Pynchon as much as Shakespeare. 2020 is Gravity’s Rainbow, and we’re almost past the zero.
To be King Lear, he needs two more daughters to plot against him, and a fool.
AOC, Ilhan Omar, and for the fool … whoa, there are so many to choose from.
They can’t cast Hillary as her turn as Lady MacBeth was indelible.
That, plus she’s older than dirt.
Aaand, she has no problem with dirty hands since she licked them clean.
P.S. Hillary Clinton will never be President of the United States.
Liking…… just to see this repeated again.
Someone on a skateboard.
It’s a lot harder when you realize the fool has to be wise.
And is loyal to Lear, as is Cordelia.
Do you suppose Joe even has two friends?
For some reason this reminded me of my hero Ambrose Bierce’s definition of a queen: The person who rules the kingdom when there is a king, and through whom the kingdom is ruled when there isn’t a king.
I forget – which Shakespeare play is it where all of the King’s children are corrupt and taking money from enemy countries?

Wonder if NYT or WaPo will cover the story?
See, that’s what I mean. Tragic figures in Shakespeare have elegant flaws, instead we get the white trash Biden Clan. Look, I watched Othello, and Joe Biden is no Othello.
Are you saying he ain’t black? then who in the sam-hill is he going to vote for?
