Re: Great Editorial, and Great Minds

Jonah, not only did NRO’s editors take the Revelations-metaphor route a day before your column appeared, but they went the full Ghostbusters: 

In remarks on Tuesday, Obama warned of “arbitrary” and “brutal” cuts liable to “eviscerate job-creating investments in education and energy and medical research.” Then, in front of a wall of human props dressed as firemen, he foretold a litany of impending disasters: emergency responders and federal agents kneecapped by budget cuts and furloughs, prosecutors forced to let criminals walk, unmanned air-traffic-control towers, roving bands of laid-off teachers, hordes of children robbed of health care, unvaccinated millions spreading disease through the population. The president stopped short of predicting human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together, and mass hysteria. But the gist was similar.

Dr. Peter Venkman, for the win.
