I saw the second Presidential debate of 2012 and Edward Albee’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” on Broadway on the same week. Here is an excerpt from Act III:
MARTHA: There is no moon now..
GEORGE: …Well, there was a moon.
MARTHA: There couldn’t have been a moon
GEORGE: Well, there was. There is.
MARTHA: There is no moon; the moon went down.
GEORGE: There is a moon; the moon is up
MARTHA: I’m afraid you’re mistaken
GEORGE: No, no
MARTHA: There is no goddamn moon….There is no moon; the moon went down
GEORGE: That may very well be, Chastity; the moon may very well have gone down… but it came back up
MARTHA: The moon does not come back up; when the moon goes down it stays down
GEORGE: You don’t know anything. If the moon went down, then it came back up..
GEORGE: Ignorance. Such ignorance
MARTHA: Watch who you’re calling ignorant.’
Or is it Obama and Romney in Wicked?
