Talk about your Manchurian candidate

· Republicans

Wouldn’t it be strange if left-wing sleeper agents infiltrated the Republican party like the Russians posing as Americans in that Charles Bronson film and under the guise of a “new” form of conservatism, introduced a bizarre almost Trotskyist foreign policy and will to power that succeeded in duping America’s foremost right-wing party into self-destructing?
It would be just like the left to put our nation at risk by trying to heighten the contradictions to such a drastic degree.
Good thing we’re not living in some strange kind of Philip K. Dick type universe in which, say, one of the characters in the novel is played by a movie actor who marries into the anti-Nixon political dynasty and goes on to be the governor of the state in a time of heightened security alerts and competing versions of reality.
