Rollin' Like Sisyphus

Counting From The Back Of The Shoe

Shit just got real for the Political Consultant class:

A flock of two dozen mad-as-hell supporters of Donald Trump agreed to assemble on Monday night in a political consultant’s office to explain their passion for the Republican frontrunner

Hold on.
Let me get a drink.
Okay. Let’s roll.

“You guys understand how significant this is?” Luntz asked the press breathlessly when he came back into the room behind the glass. “This is real. I’m having trouble processing it. Like, my legs are shaking. I want to put the Republican leadership behind this mirror and let them see. They need to wake up. They don’t realize how the grassroots have abandoned them,” Luntz continued. “Donald Trump is punishment to a Republican elite that wasn’t listening to their grassroots.”

While excellent, this is mostly so for the one simple lesson that only Luntz seems to sense – plainspoken candidates who care nothing for messagecraft and other arts of the milquetoast are to Luntz’ class what automated ordering kiosks at McDonald’s are for the Occupy Wall Street cohort – a grim glimpse into a forsaken future, a most-desvered fate of their own design.
Why?

“We know his goal is to make America great again,” a woman said. “It’s on his hat.”

That surely has to be the moment when Luntz knew the jig was up and his continued existance in occupational terms was superfluous at best, thoroughly exhausted at worst.

    Ahahahahaha! I think, for the moment, if all else lines up, maybe, I am more for Trump than not. Probably. (Putting it in Trump-ese.) But I have zero belief that Trump means to make anything better, save maybe he and his kind’s financial holdings. Punishment, maybe. As I think, among some of us folk who visit hereabouts, there is no saving. There is only surviving. A vote for Trump might just mean that the political and bureaucratic classes get more cut out of the little bit that remains when all is said and done. Billionaires don’t share. Won’t hurt those of us not already being cut in. We lost long ago. Probably won’t even help the billionaires. It will muck up a lot of plans, perhaps, by the ones who sold out for today and more for themselves. That’s all.

    America? Better? That’s up to the people. Politicians can’t do that.
