Idiocracy: it seems fiction has become reality.
It can't be all bad.

Look, if we take this idiocracy to its extreme, we might be able to avert wars in the future by holding head of state pay per view cage matches. In which case, again, the Rock 2020!
Hillary would kick his ass. She is a very resourceful woman.

No thanks. If the Clintons have any decency, they will not impose themselves on the country again and just retire to Chapaqua so I can limit my exposure to running into them at the Stone Barns farmer's market.
Those who, even with distracted minds,
Entered a stupa compound
And chanted but once, “Namo Buddhaya!”
Have certainly attained the path of the buddhas.

Ummmm but she can beat Trump and the Rock in a cage match. Therefore she deserves to be president. Regardless of Clinton-ness or lack thereof.
歸命本覺心法身常住妙法心蓮臺本來莊嚴三身徳三十七尊住心
城遠離因果法然具普門塵數諸三昧無邊徳海本圓滿還我頂禮心諸佛

In reverence for the root gnosis of the heart, the dharmakāya,
for the ever present good law of the heart, the lotus terrace,
for the inborn adornment of the trikāya, the thirty-seven sages dwelling in the heart,
for the that which is removed from seed and fruit, the upright key to the universal gate,
for all boundless concentrations, the sea of virtue, the root perfection,
I prostrate, bowing to the hearts of all Buddhas.

You win. I tap out.

The next level was having you fight Hillary in a cage match.

Don't underestimate her. She knows krav maga. You can't prove she doesn't.

I vote for Emma Watson.

If we are going to have entertainers running for the job, personally, I believe Ernest Borgnine should be president of the U$. I reckon he can do a better job as a rotting corpse in a grave, than Trump or Clinton could ever do.
