The Game Is Afoot

The Main Event

The Main Event

THE CANDIDATES HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED, THE BATTLE-LINES DRAWN and, as Conan Doyle would say, “The game is afoot.”  Perhaps Michael Buffer’s “Let’s get ready to rumble!” is more apt.  


             The Main Event—Trump/Pence V Biden/Harris

In the Red trunks, weighing in at 110kg with a net worth of $2.1 billion and defending his highly disputed 2016 victory is Dissin’ Donnie Trump.  His opponent in the Blue trunks, at 72kg with a net worth of $1.5 million is the challenger, 77 year old former vice president, Sleepy Joe Biden.  There will be no official referee, although the Supreme Court and perhaps the military may select the winner.  Biting, head-butting, chair-bashing and hitting below the belt are both expected and encouraged.  The winner will be the last man standing—any decision by the judges has already been deemed “rigged.”  For those scoring the fight at home, don’t bother.  Officials are making very effort to ensure that your opinion—formerly referred to as a VOTE—will not matter.


This election isn’t a matter of Life and Death.  It’s much, much more important than that!
