This ought to put a smile on your face, and God knows we need some smiles. If we're to overcome the onslaught of narcissistic sociopathy, exemplified by the ebony and ivory of Donald Trump and Tea Party favorites, Allen West and Herman Cain, and the rest of the followers of Ayn Rand's serial killer inspired ideology, we need to generate some positive emotional energy. Never forget that Ayn Rand's hero was the serial killer, William Edward Hickman, who's imfamous motto she bilked: "What's good for me is right." That motto is the "principle" upon which all right-wing policy and philosophy revolve. As Emile Durkheim, one of the founders of sociology wrote, we need doses of collectively generated emotional energy, what he called "collective effervescence," not only to maintain our health and sanity, but to fuel our political struggle against evil. And the Prez and Seth Meyers supply this energy in the form of humor at last nights Correspondent's Dinner (see vid below).
That's why I've been advocating that progressives drop the useless and inaccurate leftwing metaphor of "the lesser of two evils," to describe the two party electoral system and recognize that we are literally dealing with just one evil - and it's represented by the narcissistic sociopaths and extremists who've become synonymous with the present day right-wing movement. So sit back and enjoy this episode of: "Hey Trump, You Just got Thumped, Chumped, Dumped and Trumped!"
