When you're at the top of your game, you know it's only a matter of time as pretenders to the throne come to unseat you. Knock, knock, knock. Hear that, GOP stalwarts? The insane asylum has been breached. The inmates have left the building. What to do, what to do?
Rachel Maddow has recently highlighted some of the gilded cagers of the Republican party. Their stalwarts. Their front runners. Their majordomos. Now it's time to add some new names, some old, but all familiar. Not unlike other famous politicos of the past, they share a common outcome with The Titanic, The Hindenburg, The Lusitania and the Doña Paz (I just threw that one in to see if you knew your maritime history, 1987).
In the Republican circles these rising stars are known as Donald Trump, Steve King, Steve Lunergan, and Art Robinson. Front liners, all. But just like movie trailers or coming attractions, they help tease you into coming back and seeing the whole film. With republicans like these, you can see the future. It's going to be standing room only as the orchestra strikes up, "Send In The Clowns."
I'm nothing short of amazed that the party has lasted this long. After having seen this insanity, the RNC has begun sending out a special video and anouncement for the 2016 presidential election. Having a spy on the inside, I was able to get a copy. Here's the message that goes along with the clip below. The announcement reads: "We're temporarily closed for business. Please enjoy this musical interlude while we wait for a new bunch of coconuts to be delivered. Reince Priebus."
