I need to dust off my books on the fall of the Roman Empire.
This is just too closely tracking that spiral: perfumed eunuchs, clowns and doofusii given positions of power. The failure of arms and the besmirching of the institutions of marriage, hearth and home.
I just have not decided if zero is nero or elagabalus...But women own his azz.
I was just reading Chapter 4 of Gibbon last night, the reign of Commodus. He’s really a good fit for O, right down to substituting basketball players and JayZ for gladiators and charioteers.
Great minds and all....I have been thinking that Obama most closely resembles Elagabalus. An effeminate prince from the East who rises to the crown almost by mistake and hardly of his own accord. Completely incompetent and an utter affront to the Roman legions....
