But That Trick Never Works!
The collection of portrayals of Republicans in clown makeup (seen via Boing Boing) reminded me a Circus World by Barry Longyear. On Circus World, the clowns, led by the Great Kamera, tried for a government shutdown before it started. They opposed the pro-government magician faction. I assume that a series portraying Democrats as magicians will be next.
Obama's next speech will no doubt be: “Hey, Rocky! Watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat!”
