The prophecy of Silverberg

The media-politico complex is deeply, deeply concerned about people being provided any reason to trust their own eyes regarding Hillary Clinton’s health, which is why Dr. Drew appears to have some concerns about his own:

Dr. Drew Pinsky is so afraid of Hillary Clinton and her supporters, he won’t blame them for the cancellation of his show on HLN, the sister channel of CNN.

“No, no, no. I just want them to go away!” he told one friend.

“Dr. Drew” was canceled eight days after Pinsky discussed Clinton’s health on a radio show, saying he was “gravely concerned not just about her health, but her health care.”

“CNN is so supportive of Clinton, network honchos acted like the Mafia when confronting Drew,” a source told me. “First, they demanded he retract his comments, but he wouldn’t.”

What followed was a series of nasty phone calls and e-mails. “It was downright scary and creepy,” a source close to Pinsky said.

The Clinton campaign increasingly reminds me of Robert Silverberg’s Majipoor Chronicles, in which it is revealed that the ruler of the massive planet, the Pontifex, is a comatose elderly man whose life is being artificially sustained by technology, while the Coronal, ostensibly his vice-executive, rules publicly in his place.

Seriously, though, what are they going to do for the next four years if Hillary somehow avoids the coming Trumpslide and actually wins the election? They can barely wheel her out in public once every few weeks as it is.
