Ignoring the political ruins of their party, Republican leaders are trying to lend some dignity to the Drumpf campaign but it’s out of control. Showboating artist Spencer Tunick is planning an installation of 100 naked women outside the convention in July. A group of rightwing whackos in India are holding fire rituals to pray for Drumpf’s victory. And still nothing compares to the candidate himself talking about the size of his private parts.

Will the oligarchy ever be able to restore dignity to US elections? Or is burlesque the new norm? In the surreal world of lesser evil politics, Drumpf is shaping up to be just that. Pardon if it’s impossible not to laugh.
