Political Theater

I wish I’d thought of this. Pennsylvania Republican congressional candidate Raj Peter Bhakta, demonstrated what a joke border security is by riding an elephant across the Rio Grande — with a mariachi band! (see his Fox News interview here.) Sure it’s a stunt, but stunts matter, like the College Republican affirmative-action bake sales or Horowitz’s “reparations are racist” ads. The Left has been better than us at political theater for a long time; maybe we’re starting to catch up.
