I’m Surprised Moe Lane Has Not Picked This Up Yet…

… he usually jumps at the chance to blog about Cthulhu.

Smitty announces Harry Reid’s latest endorsement: Cthulhu!

I dig the video he posted for the uninitiated (like me):

The blurb Smitty pulled out does not quite make the point. You have to look at it in context:

R’LYEH, PACIFIC OCEAN – Great Old One Cthulhu leans toward a public option in the ongoing healthcare debate. “Though in no way human, I believe it’s a basic human right for people to have good-quality, medical coverage.” Pausing to crush a small vessel filled with screaming sailors, the colossal entity continued, “And to make that happen, you need a large entity like the government to wade in. Of course, there will be many new taxes, plus rationing to hold down costs.” Cthulhu paused, staring off into the distance, sending out thought waves that would drive artists and sensitive folk mad on a half-dozen continents. “But that’s the price a civilized nation pays for universal care.” Leaning back against the wall of a strange, titanic temple constructed using non-Euclidean geometry, Cthulhu tugged thoughtfully at his facial tentacles. “But without getting all high and mighty, the healthcare argument doesn’t really interest me. Once the stars align and we [Great Old Ones] return to rule earth, we’re gonna crush everything and eat everybody, so get the government involved…or not. I roll either way.”

All this, of course, makes perfect sense in the Lovecraftian sort of way. Cthulhu and the other “great old ones” are all about driving humanity mad (apparently, madness, not tears, is the sweetest sauce). What is more maddening than having to sit though hours of line to have a “bureaucrat” deem you not useful enough to treat your cancer. Bureaucrat, of course, being code for a non-corporeal being that will feast on your soul afterwards.

Also, of course, Frank Lloyd Wright is behind all this. Cthulhu has nothing on the dark architectural arts.
