SEND IN THE CLOWNS!

Sometimes the best description of what is going on today has already been written, long ago, for a different reason.

“SEND IN THE CLOWNS.”  SONDHEIM ON SONDHEIM – SEND IN THE CLOWNS LYRICS (songlyrics.com)

Isn’t it rich?
Are we a pair?
Me here at last on the ground,
You in mid-air.
Send in the clowns.

Isn’t it bliss?
Don’t you approve?
One who keeps tearing around,
One who can’t move.
Where are the clowns?
Send in the clowns.

Just when I’d stopped
Opening doors,
Finally knowing
The one that I wanted was yours,
Making my entrance again
With my usual flair,
Sure of my lines,
No one is there.

Don’t you love farce?
My fault, I fear.
I thought that you’d want what I want –
Sorry, my dear.
But where are the clowns?
There ought to be clowns.
Quick, send in the clowns.

What a surprise.
Who could foresee
I’d come to feel about you
What you’d felt about me?
Why only now when I see
That you’d drifted away?
What a surprise.
What a cliché.

Isn’t it rich?
Isn’t it queer?
Losing my timing this late
In my career?
And where are the clowns?
Quick, send in the clowns.
Don’t bother – they’re here.

There have been many people who speculated, incorrectly, about the true meaning of these lyrics. We don’t have to guess. The person who wrote the song, Stephen Sondheim explained this in a 1990 interview:

 “It’s a theater reference meaning ‘if the show isn’t going well, let send in the clowns’, in other words, “let’s do the jokes.” Then he ends with explaining the last line: “Don’t bother, they’re here, which means ‘we are the fools.’”

It is only a matter of time before the clowns in the MSM are confronted with the reality that they, indeed, are the fools. They have been putting on quite a show, lying about anything and everything for far too long. But all the lies are being exposed, one by one. The latest fiasco, the Democratic Primary in NYC is just one of many examples. It turns out the people running this input 135,000 “test ballots” into the voting machines, to make sure they worked. But they forgot to remove them. Oops. When they ran the real ballots, they forgot about the test ballots so included them in the results. When the error was discovered, they tried desperately to claw back initial reports. Now no one knows who is actually in the lead. By the way, it may take days, if not weeks to sort this out, and no matter what the result, few will believe it.

The impact of this will reach far beyond New York. Just when the self-righteous anchors on the MSM were lecturing us about daring to question the results of the best run election in American History, New York City just put on a public demonstration of how easy it is to muck up an election.

Combine that with the Arizona election audit report which is getting ready to drop and there it is, the perfect storm. The people running the audit clearly know how to maintain security because there have been zero leaks. We can be sure if there was any evidence supporting the claim that it was Trump telling the big lie about election results, we would already know that. Anything negative about Trump ALWAYS leaks. Numerous delegations from other states have visited and all reported being impressed by the process. Now we are either going to see a lot of Republicans, standing in a circle, desperately trying, and failing to wipe the collective egg off their faces, or they have the evidence. We will soon know the answer to that.

I think the Democrat narrative is about to come crashing down faster than that condominium tower in Florida. The MSM will desperately try to send in the clowns, to distract. But they’ve been warned:

 “Quick, send in the clowns, don’t bother – they’re here.”  The clowns are already here, they’ve always been here, they have just been exposed. They are the fools and soon everyone will know that.
