Pretty good, although I think Mark Hamil doing the Joker might be better.

abb3w: Pretty good, although I think Mark Hamil doing the Joker might be better.


The Joker would have been a more effective president. He's evil, but he knows what he's doing.

I used to hate and fear Donald Trump. These days I mostly pity him.

It was Fark that changed my mind about that, strangely enough.

Specifically, a comment thread on the subject of a video showing Trump getting lost on the way from his plane to his limo. TFA asked us to point and laugh, of course. The thread actually turned into a serious discussion of senile dementia, with many people who had seen their parents and other loved ones do similar things discussing their experiences, and conjecture (based on experience) that the President could easily require constant care by the end of his term.

I thought physical stress could be his undoing---he's an old man, not in great shape, and he was woefully underprepared for the job---but mental collapse that may have been underway long before the campaign I hadn't thought of.

So, thanks, Farkers. I've learned many things here.

grumpfuff: /and should have been cast as Cable


He'd have been brilliant as Cable, but (speaking of senile dementia) being 67 now would seem less likely to be reliable to the role for the next 15 years of movies.  Marvel Studios these days seem to be about the long game, effectively making annual features as installments on decade-plus serials. That affects casting choices for major characters that they don't plan to kill off any time soon.

Why do people INSIST on this view? If your axes represent competency and morality, what you have above is the LAST quadrant we want to find ourselves in.

Desirability ranking by my judgment:
1. good/competent
2a. good/incompetent
2b. evil/incompetent
4. evil/competent

Agreed. I dislike Trump for all actions before his candidacy but the stuff he's been doing for the past year is clearly the GOP party heads/Trumps cabinet taking advantage of an obviously mentally unwell elderly man. I'm sure there were presidents, monarchs, etc. in the past that were suffering from mental disorders and taken advantage of by the upper class, but i'm not sure any have been televised to this extent. This shiat is like Desert Storm but with national leadership.

Oh his kids and Melania are complicit and bad people. Barron's obviously good and my thoughts on Tiffany are "Well, she doesn't seem to be publicly trying to take advantage of him, so that's good.". Having said that, the kids were raised by Trump so their actions are to be expected (not excused but not shocked the kids of the guy who made a living taking advantage of others are doing it to him).

You pity a man who treats people like garbage, lies at every turn, is doing everything in his power to harm the country he supposedly runs, speaks like a bumbling idiot, uses hate speech, demeans women and behaves like a petulant child when he doesn't get his way?

Had movie-making technology been up to the task before he was so sadly taken away from us, Yul Brynner would've made an even better Xavier. (Stan Lee supposedly had Kirby base Xavier's appearance on Brynner.)

Believe it or not, I felt the same sort of pity for McCain when he was running for President. I've worked in the medical field (down at the very bottom, hands-on, personal care) for 30 years.
His campaign struck me as elder abuse. Even then, he was an old man, not in the best of health, and on medications of the kind that are given to people suffering from senile dementia.
