I shall follow your future lack of a career with much interest.
Billionaire and presidential candidate Mitty stood erect at the center lectern on the Ames, Iowa debate stage. Chris Wallace asked his question. In the long contemptuous silence that followed, the audience rustled in their seats. Chris nervously started to speak again.
Mitty cut him off with one savage gesture. Something flashed in his burning eyes. “I am ashamed to hear a grown man ask that question, Chris. Your interrogatory is unworthy of this great country and my candidacy. I am ashamed to be on the same platform with my inexperienced, shifty, and hapless opponents. They disgrace the nation. I am ashamed to appear before an audience that has actually applauded the broken platitudes my opponents mutter. God save the Republic.”
Mitty strode contemptuously from the stage. Behind him the chant came louder and louder, “Mitty! Mitty! Mitty!”
. . .
Oh, no, dear, I just said “God save the Republic.” I’m watching the Fox News debate.
