Contrary to popular belief the still standing candidates for the presidency are not Larry, Curly, and Moe.
Instead, they are stand ins for three characters from modern literature. On the Republican side we have Captain Queeg while the Democrat contenders are Elmer Gantry and Nurse Ratched.
The three stooges would make us laugh and never hurt us. This cannot be said about the candidates we have, and the trick is going to be to decide which of them is likely to do us the least harm.
