Rick Sets VDB Straight On Married Beer

by Philip Baruth

Plato developed the concept of the “philosopher king” to thread the needle, politically speaking: he wanted someone ruthless enough to rule, while brilliant enough to understand that there were rules to ruling. Smart enough actually to discover the truth, in other words, and domineering enough to then rigidly enforce the results of those philosophical speculations. Someone like, yes: Rick Santorum. This is a man who knows water from beer, and will fight to the death your right to say otherwise. And so VDB sayeth: Rule us, Rick. We await the thousand-year reign of your Clarity.
