Favorite political quote

This is from 2016, but still applies, especially Mr. Reynolds' quote at the end.  After all, why vote for the lesser evil?



WE’RE LIVING IN A YEAR WHEN THIS HEADLINE IS PERFECTLY COMPREHENSIBLE: Demon god Cthulhu seen as possible third-party candidate.

    “Cthulhu has been running for the presidency throughout the decades in one form or another. Most Americans think it as a joke,” said Samir al-Azrad, press secretary for Cthulhu for America, in an email interview with the Washington Examiner. “And indeed, in more ‘civilized’ times, humanity has been mostly uninterested in the glory of a Cthulhu-driven apocalypse. But 2016 is turning out to be an excellent year to bring the word of Cthulhu to the masses.”

Honestly, if I were Cthulhu, I’d look at 2016 and stay home.

    I've seen a few bumper stickers to that effect over the years.  Wry, gallows type humor has always been a draw for me and those bumper stickers definitely hit that target. 

    I think if I was living in one of the war zones that used to be a major American city I might be convinced that Cthulhu had won the previous mayoral contest.  No need to imagine Lovecraftian horrors loose upon the land when the daily news coverage is such a rich vein of similar material.  Many years ago the iconic storyteller Ray Bradbury wrote a story titled; " Something Wicked This Way Comes. ".   Indeed.

    Somewhat disconcerting that SMOD lately seems like such an attractive option.

    Yup.  Been a while but I seem to remember it.

    "Maximum Overdrive" revolved around a comet, too, IIRC.

    I seem to remember that one too.  I used to watch a fair amount of late night TV back in the day and Blockbuster was always good for a sackfull of bargains from the B movie section.   And yes, I always rewound them before bringing them back to the store.    :cool
