…found here. BigGator5 represented Sweet Meteor of Death 2016; @thekytikat moderated. I feel that I acquitted myself reasonably well, although I probably should have talked more about The King In Yellow.
Cthulhu reference. Also, SMoD. And, well, this:
Cruz is great. Rand Paul is great. Scott Walker is great. Bobby Jindal is great. Rick by-God Perry is great. Jeb Bush . . . was a really, really fine governor. We have primary elections for a reason, and these are some big boys (and girls? What says Governor Martinez? Governor Fallin? Governor Haley? Governor . . . ?) who are more than capable of inflicting upon themselves whatever savage and perverse ritual combat Republican-primary voters demand, with the last man standing demanding of the conclave in Cleveland: “Are you not entertained?”
Should be a hoot.
Personally, I recommend staying frosty when it comes to the primary. After all, every Republican candidate except one will end up losing it; their supporters should probably be prepared for that to happen. Or, conversely: if they’re planning to take their ball and go home if their candidate loses… then they should probably do it now, and avoid the rush.
That’s from the meteor that hit over in the Urals; didn’t kill anybody – but that’s thanks to the laws of physics, and possibly your benevolent supernatural entity or entities of choice. It’s for damned sure we couldn’t have stopped the sucker if it had happened to be on an intercept course with, say, Kiev.
PS: The universe is full of rocks that could wreck our whole day. We are ‘safe’ largely because of the laws of probability… which is to say, we’re not safe at all.
