It's always interesting to listen to what the experts have to say. Following Donald Trump's win in the presidential elections, May Shroom, Professor of Political Sophistry at Expensive University interrogates Banan A Peel, CEO of Dark Money Think Tank.
May Shroom: Actually Banon, our models showed Trump losing the popular vote, and we were dead on right about that.
BAP: Congratulations. Now that The Donald is President Elect, what insight can you give us into his goals?
MS: The main goal - to get revenge on all those comics who made fun of him - that's been achieved. President Obama and Seth Meyers are probably pretty much regretting those jokes they made now.
But is revenge a clear enough guideline by which to pilot a country in the 21st century?
Certainly. Especially coupled with profit. I'd be surprised if The Donald didn't make some pretty fantastic returns on this investment.
"Revenge and profit" is, by the way, a much easier doctrine to understand than "Monroe" or "Containment".
Trump's just joking about throwing Clinton in jail and silencing the press, isn't he?
Remember that game show, The Price Is Right? The climax was always that moment when the contestant had to decide to risk everything in order to see what was behind the curtain. I think that about sums up the situation today.
Hey Carol Merrill, what's behind door number three! Loved that show! So you're saying that America just voted out of curiosity to see what might be hidden behind the curtain?
A people gets bored. A people gets tired of blenders and sensible shoes. A people wants a little excitement. That's why we skydive and take ecstasy. Which is a pretty good description of what we just did.
But did we do it? What about those who say "it was the Russians wot done it"?
Lenin once said that capitalists would sell you the rope to hang them with. That's why he will make such a great Secretary of State.
I thought Trump named Tillerson?
Right, right. I get them confused. There was also some talk about Carly "The Face" Fiorina.
What is the place of Christianity in this administration? Is Trump as religious as he looks?
Absolutely. Christianity occupies a prime place in the Trump administration, like in Elmer Gantry
Wall Street has greeted the election of Trump with enthusiasm. The Dow has been hitting record highs. Is that because they are convinced he will be a good manager?
Ha ha. That's a good one. They've just blown off the doors and window and there's self driving cars and drones to spirit the stuff away. Ever heard of the ransacking of Rome? Totally small potatoes compared to what is coming.
