Ratlines on the American Left

Once upon a time, ratlines were horizontal ropes in a ship’s rigging that allowed a sailor to scale the lines or climb a ship’s mast. On a sinking ship, rat lines were the last refuge for rodents and unlucky tars that couldn’t swim or didn’t make it into a lifeboat. Today, rat lines are thought to be euphemisms for any desperate avenue of escape or last ditch tactics.

Ratline politics these days is trending on the American Left. If recent electoral results provide any clues, the Democrat Party has all the symptoms of a ship in peril. Liberal rats are headed for the lines.

      When Leonardo DiCaprio met with Bill Clinton in the White House, Jay Leno said, “DiCaprio went down on the Titanic. The Titanic went down on Clinton.”

    Time for a name change: The Anti-American Party is more accurate than the Democrat Party.
