The goose, the boat, and the apple cart

Trump and Cruz are awful in every way, but - from the perspective of the establishment (both the Democratic establishment and the Republican establishment) - Hillary is a safe bet. She will not kill their golden goose, won't rock the boat, will not even upset their apple cart (or mix their metaphors).

Trump is a bigot and a demagogue, and - more important to the establishment - he is promising change, and the establishment has no reason to doubt that a Trump presidency would definitely kill geese, rock boats, and spill apples.

Cruz is a corrosively ambitious, sneaky conniving, back-stabber, and the establishment knows that Cruz will throw anyone under the bus who gets in his way, and so Cruz cannot be trusted to protect the geese, boats, and apples.

Sanders - why even mention Sanders? - he's a non-starter for the establishment because he has promised to nationalize the boat and serve apple-stuffed cooked goose to the poor.

If you look at the four candidates from the perspective of those Republicans as well as those Democrats who have a vested interest in protecting the status quo of the establishment's rigged economy, Hillary is an easy choice.

1. Hillary is the easy choice because other than Bernie there are no alternatives being offered.

Hopefully what Bernie did now will resonate and a new Bernie will be born in the Senate or House and will lead the young away from our crap ways.
