Today’s Trumpery  
50 years ago Lenny Bruce came up with the ultimate minimal political slogan: “Vote for me; I don’t wet the bed.” I keep being reminded of it and will no doubt be reminded even more in the coming days. The latest dry-sheets announcement from Mr. Trump is his Diversity Moment: two female appointees, one of whom has not expressed more enthusiasm for child labor than for public schools, and Ben Carson. Since Dr. Carson has already said he doesn’t want a Cabinet appointment, Mr. Trump may be forced to get to know a second Black person.

The Lenny Bruce political slogan is good. I see that it fits pretty well. I, on the other hand, cannot get Orwell out of my mind.

"War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength"

Or the World State's official motto in Aldous Huxley's much more subtle and scary Brave New World: Community, Identity, Stability.

Who wouldn't want that?
