    I’ve been watching the trailer every day for the last eighteen months — I don’t feel like I actually need to go to this one.

    Rat has a little bit of Will Rogers DNA hidden under that hat.

    Except that there’s no happy ending.

    Just suppose, Rat, that a majority of the voters did vote for you. Then what?‘Course, it couldn’t get much worse than with the other candidates….

    Rat just may be a viable candidate.

    And the quality of the offerings seems to get worse as time goes on.

    Add outlandish costumes to Rat’s description and you’ve got Professional Wrestling …or Grand Opera …or Superhero Comics. Come to think, Trump’s one-size-fits-no-one “hat” probably qualifies as outlandish costuming.

    I was thinking the same thing. Hope that cuts them all off at the pass.

    Hollywood’s making so many franchises/reboots/sequels these days it’s showing that they’re just in it for the money, rather than making a quality film. There are exceptions of course…

    Also, there’s an over-reliance on comic book characters these days.

    Australia solves this problem – fining people who don’t vote.

    So apathetic people vote too (because apathetic or not, $20 is $20).

    Wait . . .

    Woman: "Wait a minute, you’re not making any sense. Why should I vote for you, anyway? I mean, what’s it all about?”Rat: “Easy. It’s all about me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me,…”(SLAM!)Rat: “Oh, well. There’s lots of other houses in town.”

    I really hope The Rump doesn’t win; we don’t need another remake of The Blob.

    “Oh and their both filled with ridiculous fantasies.”

    Sad but true, Rat. Sad but true. And whoever gets the most people to believe their fantasies tends to be the one who wins.

    She will never be indicted. She knows where the bodies are buried. Besides, if she were and convicted then the last act of the outgoing president would be to pardon her.And sorry to say, that game would be played were it a Republican. They are two sides of the same coin. Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    I am amused/confounded by the frequent assertion that neither of these two candidates is better than the other. One is accused of much, suspected of more and worse, but has never been legally sanctioned… because, ya know, no actual evidence… much less proof. The other can’t get through a day, or even a speech, without betraying (a dozen times) the inclination to use all available means to crush enemies and exert power with idiosyncratic abandon.
