''Rip Van Trumpsickle awoke from a sleep that had begun before the Reagan Revolution and had lasted so many years. When Rip entered his old village, he immediately felt lost. The buildings, the faces, the names were all strange and incomprehensible. 'The very village was altered -- it was larger and more populous,' and idleness, except among the aged, was no longer tolerated. 'The very character of the people seemed changed. There was a busy, bustling disputatious tone about it, instead of the accustomed phlegm and drowsy tranquility' -- a terrifying situation for Rip, who had had 'an insuperable aversion to all kinds of profitable labour.' Even the language was strange -- 'rights of citizens -- 'Dump Trumpsickle!"-- "Chill with Hill!" -- elections -- members of Congress -- liberty ... and other words which were a perfect babylonish jargon to the bewildered Van Trumpsickle.' When people asked him 'on which side he voted' and 'whether he was Republican or a Democrat,' Rip could only stare 'in vacant stupidity.'
