We Have Seen This Before, In Literature

For John, BLUFYes, I think "snatch the presidency from its rightful owner, H Clinton" captures the mindset of many.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

This is by Mr roger Kimbal, from the web presence American Greatness this 16th of July 2017.

Here is how it starts out:

Not the Pope, Francis the anti-American environmentalist Jesuit.  No, I mean Alex, the 18th-century English poet.

Here’s my question:  Is the whole Russia-meddled-in-U.S.-election/Donald-Trump-colluded-with-Putin-to-snatch-the-presidency-from-its-rightful-owner,-H.-Clinton narrative an example of what Pope talked about at the beginning of The Rape of the Lock?

What dire Offence from am’rous Causes springs,
What mighty Quarrels rise from trivial Things . . .
Or is Kafka’s book The Trial a better entrée into the fevered and surreal swamp that has Democratic, and not a few Republican, heads exploding with conspiratorial visions?
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
