62 Days Until the Big Show Begins
November 18, 2016
Ah, ten days since that election and the auditions for the White House Reality Show have been pretty exciting. Players of all kinds have been responding in droves to last week’s casting call. While the Trump Transition Team has a deep pool of talent to choose from, it’s not all unicorns and rainbows. I mean, just how does one decide between John Bolton and Rudy Giuliani for the secretary of state role? Each would bring a unique flare to the part. The choice between bravado and uninformed bravado is never easy.
Hey, how about that casting of Putin in the Lord Voldemort role? Talk about a coup! His show stopping performances in both the Crimean and Syrian theaters hold promise of great things to come. Let’s face it; he’s a natural.
With talent like Jeff Sessions, Mike Flynn, Stephen Bannon, Rick Scott and (we can only hope) Sarah Palin we can expect the whitest Executive branch ever. It’s going to be huge.
Can we expect drama? Are you kidding? The show doesn’t actually start until the twentieth of January, but we already have seen an internal purge and FBI collusion.
Can we expect comedy? You bet! Have you seen that look on Paul Ryan’s face? What could be funnier? He looks like Jerry Mahoney (look it up) in a mattress fire. I look forward to enjoying both Speaker Ryan and Leader Mitch McConnell (a dead ringer for Knucklehead Smiff) playing the roles they deserve.
My one concern is the consideration of Mitt Romney for a the cabinet dwarf role. Frankly, Mitt is neither a performer or a government hater so I’m unsure how he would fit in. After all, the most important ingredient for a great show is cast chemistry, you know, the esprit de corps. I don’t think Mitt’s got it. But, we shall see. I’m sure whatever the Donald decides will be, well, great.
Can’t wait for the real show to start!
(We are so screwed.)
That’s all I got today. Take care of yourselves and each other,
