With so many Trump Age Republican no-shows at town hall meetings around the country, is it fair to assume that they are busy rehearsing for a revival of The Shadow, the old radio series with a remarkable detective who could cloud people’s minds without being seen? OK, for skeptics, it’s true that they already have plenty of experience doing that from their perches on Capitol Hill!
As a kid, I was forever enthralled by The Shadow, who knew what “evil lurked in the hearts of men” and set about to expose it. ( Heh. heh. heh…} Thanks to special powers that he learned in the Orient, he could be invisible to others, but in our midst anyway. In modern terms, he is gifted with a creepy power from Steve Bannon. (Heh. .heh. heh….) You wouldn’t dare doubt his mystical presence. After all, The Shadow knew and could never be denied! Spooky. Right Like congressional phantom Republicans, right?
