That video is a perfect metaphor for this story:
Susan Sarandon, Olivia Wilde and Edward Norton are among the more than 90 entertainers urging Sen. Elizabeth Warren to throw her hat in the 2016 presidential race.
The group — which also includes Mark Ruffalo, Natasha Lyonne, Julia Stiles, and “The Avengers” director Joss Whedon — penned an open letter this week to the Massachusetts Democrat, pushing her to make a White House bid.
“Senator Warren, we’re ready to show you that you have the support needed to enter this presidential race,” the letter says. “We’re ready to fight with you, Senator Warren. Please, run for President.”
The Hollywood stars are banding together to form a group called “Artists for Warren.” The lawmaker has repeatedly denied she’ll be vying to become President Warren, answering simply, “No,” when Fortune magazine asked last month if she was going to run.
But the celebs don’t appear to be deterred.
“These artists inspire us,” Ready for Warren super-PAC campaign manager Erica Sagrans said in a news release, “and they’re making it clear they’re inspired by Elizabeth Warren — her integrity, her authenticity, and her vision for what our country can be.”
Elizabeth Warren is an older, whiter, female Obama, without the manufactured image of coolness. She makes Joe Biden look good by comparison. She’s almost as old as Hillary, without the accomplishments (and when you really think about it, Hillary hasn’t actually accomplished much worth bragging about).
The problem for the Democrats is they don’t have a farm system anymore. After Hillary, Biden and Warren (who are all old and white) they really don’t have any contenders. They are like a sports team that has traded away all their future prospects and tied itself to long-term contracts with aging players who weren’t even stars in their prime.
Greek voters put their faith in a charismatic politician who made big promises, but they’re going to learn a harsh lesson.
The deck chairs of the Titanic can only be rearranged so many times.
If you don’t take your medicine, you won’t get better.
I gotta go feed The Kittehs.
