Will America Jump the Shark in 2016

2 Sep

With Donald Trump atop the polls in the Republican presidential race so far, it makes one wonder (at least me) if America is about ready to “jump the shark” which is entertainment parlance used to describe “the moment in the evolution of a television show when it begins a decline in quality, signaled by a particular scene, episode, or aspect of a show in which the writers use some type of gimmick in an attempt to keep viewers’ interest.”

With all of the craziness going on in the United States these days with the endless wars on terror, poverty and drugs and the seemingly endless shooting wars in the Middle East along with the declaration of money as speech and corporations as people, and with bank for-closings and banking shenanigans and “too big to fail” and the stock market rising and failing like a roller coaster every few years…and on and on and on…

Have we Americans run out of ideas? Is our quality waning? Are we just too tired to keep on keeping on and suddenly willing to say, “Ah what the heck. Let’s do it. Let’s give ‘the Donald’ a try and see what he can do?!”

And why not? We do love entertainment. We are the TV generation or all descendants thereof. We do love a good show… and this is sure shaping up to be one hell of a reality show…and what better host than Donald Trump himself?

It’s almost too good to pass up isn’t it? 4 years of…the greatest country in the world putting on the greatest show on earth? I don’t know if we Americans can pass up such an opportunity to entertain, astound and scare the crap out of the world…or will cooler and more intelligent minds prevail?

What do you think? In any event, I’m pretty sure we’re all going to at least stay tuned…
