"And Trump has Oprah on the ropes! She's going down for the count! WAIT! What's THIS!?!?! Here comes The Rock! OOOHHH! He just leveled The Donald with 'The People's Elbow!', and kicked Oprah off the stage! The Rock wins the debate! The Rock wins the debate!"

That is until, of course, Liz Warren's shrill, hysterical mom voice forces the rock to cover his bleeding ears and fall to his knees.

There is a great book written a few decades ago by Neil Postman called "Amusing ourselves to Death." https://www.amazon.com/Amusing-Ourse...elves+to+death

He was writing about the advent of television and how its presence would stop critical thinking in lieu of entertainment. He obviously did not foresee the Internet/social media age but, nonetheless, his hypothesis is dead on from a societal standpoint. I highly recommend it as a top read in our current culture.

Read Douglas Adams.

Satire is dead because satire has become reality.

In light of current events, the Hitchhikers Guide trilogy, which is I think 5 books. There was a 6th published posthumously.

"The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy" (first book) covers most of the political satire though.

I definitely don't want to move into an era of celebrity Presidents, but in a way, Teddy Roosevelt got placed on the ticket because he was a national celebrity for charging up San Juan Hill. The concept isn't entirely unprecedented, but at least people back then didn't try to make PT Barnum President.

Excellent reference there!

There is a difference, though. Roosevelt was running 3rd party, to split the vote on the right. It was sort of known he wouldn't win. The Bull Moose Party formed after Roosevelt had lost to Taft in the primaries, and split the vote to get Wilson elected.

It was understood that Roosevelt would not and could not win the main election.

I guess you could make a fair analogy to Trump 2016, though, in that it was assumed Trump could not win in the primaries......by the experts and pundits, anyway. Me....I put $100 on him. Then went double or nothing on him winning the election.

Not the same thing. He was a military figure. There’s a boatload of candidates who parlayed military notoriety to running for office
