It'll Be Entertaining

Professional Wrestling is entertaining. But when they click off the set, no one runs out and votes for the loudmouth in the leotard...

Overnight [convention] ratings came in. 52 million last night. Who knew if we set our hair on fire and jumped up and down people would actually tune in to watch?

-- Leo McGarry, The West Wing, 2005

Ten years ago it was inconceivable.

Ten years later it was inevitable.

Good evening, Mr. Glass.

Pro wrestling, eh? Does that make Mr. Trump into "The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase...

"Money, money, money, money, mon-ee"

Be seeing you.

Trump is just the natural result of "real" events like the WWE, the rabble-rousing of Hate Radio and Faux News and the general debasing of the media into meaningless infotainment.The GOP "Bread and circuses" ideology inevitably gave rise to Trump and the nihilism that is the current "governing" philosophy in the GOP Congress. No one should be surprised at all. The only question is whether the nation will make the right choice to survive or surrender to nihilism in November. GOTV.
