L'etat C'est Moi
Too soon, our country will have a president whose name is prominently emblazoned in screaming all-caps on hotels, office buildings, apartment buildings, golf courses, on his private plane, on clothing, wine, bottled water, aftershave, and on yet another season of a shitty reality TV show, The Apprentice. Pretty much everywhere and for purposes having nothing to do with the presidency.
This is unprecedented in U.S. history. It's improper, vulgar, and possibly illegal. The dignity and gravitas previously projected by our nation's highest office will be replaced by a narcissistic publicity stunt.
Where else in the world do you see such omnipresent imagery propping up a political leader?
Oh, yeah. There.
