We should all hope that The Donald follows the example of John McCain and selects a woman for his running mate to counter Hillary. One of the callipygian Kardashians would be an appropriate choice to demonstrate to the world looking on bemused at our political folderol as a demonstration of our sophisticated and acute understanding of realpolitik. An administration of celebrities, those semi-divine creatures America worships unceasingly; wouldn’t that be great?
No more boring politicians, no more pseudo-serious discussions with talking heads but instead a White House in touch with the majority who want distraction from their daily worries.
And yet we hunger for something beyond them. So we turn to celebrities, toxic mimics of mythic archetypes. That’s why we just might elect a Donald-Kardashian ticket, as unlikely as that seems.
