Turn out the lights …” ?

 

Well, it was fun while it lasted, which was about 225 years, give or take. I’m talking about the great American experiment, which seems on the verge of collapse. The implosion no longer seems like a question of “if,” but rather a question of “how soon.”

 

Trump has the toughness to stem the decline, but he lacks the moral authority. Biden has neither toughness nor moral authority. He barely has a functioning brain.

And so it will be left to Millennials to preside over the likely demise of the U.S.A.

 

It’s tempting to blame the Millennials for all of this, because they are such clueless snowflakes. But they were spoiled by their parents, the Baby Boomers.

It’s tempting, in turn, to blame the Boomers, but they were spoiled by their parents, the so-called Greatest Generation.

As far as I can tell, no one spoiled the Greatest Generation. Since they started this destructive chain of pampered children, should we start calling them the Worst Generation?

Just kidding.

I think.

Maybe we’ll all come to our senses and everything will turn out just fine. My pessimism might be misguided. I have been wrong many times before.

But still, I can’t shake off the sound of Dandy Don Meredith crooning his famous game-closer: “Turn out the lights, the party’s over.”

Thanks, Seattle. You’re making my city, Minneapolis, look like the second-dumbest metropolis in the country.

I’m going to go ahead and thank Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender on behalf of Mayor Jacob Frey, for supplanting him as the dumbest politician in Minnesota.
