The golden haired despot drove the cart erratically down the dire, blessed fairway, threatening all who disagreed -- with the anointed spiky putter or jagged three iron; Mexicans, bookreaders and those of the desert ran before him like turkey in late October.

Bernie needs to get out the surrogates.
