The Political Party at the End of the Universe

The U.S. House of Representatives Majority Leader Eric Cantor, one of the leading forces in the Republican party — and, because of his longevity, one of the most politically powerful — was unexpectedly defeated in his own party’s primary by an unknown Tea Party candidate.

Apparently he was insufficiently zealous in his portrayal of Barack Obama as an evil force intent on nothing less than the total destruction of America and our way of life.

I cannot resist the temptation to misquote Douglas Adams:

“There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Republican Party is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory which states that this has already happened.”

    My lecturer would use the same Douglas Adams misquote when referring to the OpenGL specification.
