Read it. I don’t have anything to say.
His Majesty has been somewhat sullen at breakfast lately. Part of it was the widespread perception in the media that Cthulu did better than His Majesty in the last debate. Part of it was the season of the year: I think His Majesty suffers from a touch of SAD (Sith Affective Disorder), which flares up around this time of year, but usually passes around early January. And I figured part of it was that the Imperial tummy has been unhappy. For several days, His Majesty could hardly choke down his meals, which left him feeling bloated and suffering with heartburn for hours afterwards. He convinced himself that it was gastroparesis, which he knows has been making life miserable for a young friend of mine.
MSCNN welcomes you all to our analysis of the third-tier Republican debate, which featured Palpatine, Cthulu, and The Sweet Meteor Of Death. Tom, give us your quick take on the debate.
Democracy that really listened to all the people would be an authoritarian nightmare.
Thus Brian Caplan
I cannot accept your canon that we are to judge Pope and King unlike other men, with a favourable presumption that they did no wrong. If there is any presumption it is the other way, against the holders of power, increasing as the power increases. Historic responsibility has to make up for the want of legal responsibility. Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority, still more when you superadd the tendency or the certainty of corruption by authority. There is no worse heresy than that the office sanctifies the holder of it.
I woke to the sound of His Majesty cackling happily. He was up early and feeding nips to the cats.
I thought Clinton versus Bush (round 2) was horrifying enough. But now it’s looking like Biden versus Trump.
One hopes sanity will yet prevail. But, if not, and this nightmare scenario comes to pass, I will write in Romney’s name in 2016.
His Majesty: “I’m writing in Cthulu. Why settle for the lesser evil?”
Actually, I think His Majesty has even worse in mind. Hold on to your hats.
George H. W. Bush did not need to be president, and Bill Clinton needed it worse than any normal human being can imagine.
His Majesty has been awfully quiet lately, but I could feeeeel the sourness swelling within him.
