The Day the Party Died

Yesterday John Kasich tendered his withdrawal from the Republican Presidential Nomination race. This followed Ted Cruz’s withdrawal on Tuesday in the wake of Donald Trump’s victory in the Indiana primaries. I think the best was to sum up the aftermath of the GOP debacle this year is pictorially, although one particular verse to Don McLean’s classic, American Pie, also springs to mind, albeit with one word changed…

“Oh, and there we were all in one place

A generation lost in space

With no time left to start again

So come on, Jack be nimble, Jack be quick

Jack Flash sat on a candlestick

‘Cause fire is the devil’s only friend

Oh, and as I watched him on the stage

My hands were clenched in fists of rage

No angel born in Hell

Could break that Satan’s spell

And as the flames climbed high into the night

To light the sacrificial rite

I saw Satan laughing with delight

The day the Party died.”
