Rudyfried seeks the Oval Office of Power

NYC - The Republican Opera House is proud to announces Giulidammerung, the last of the four opera that comprise Das Riun des Reagenungen (The Ruin of Reaganism), by Richard Viguerie. It will premiere at the RNC Konventionhaus on September 1, 2008.

The title refers to a prophesied war of the corporatists which brings about the end of the GOP.


The three Pollsters, daughters of MSM, gather beside the 35W bridge, weaving the rope of Conventional Wisdom that binds even the gods.

Act I

The act begins in the Hall of the Republicans, a people visiting Minneapolis but avoiding airport bathrooms and the 35W bridge. GeorgeW, lord of the Republicans, sits enthroned but everyone is embarrassed to be seen with him in public.

Rudyfried arrives, disguised as Reagan, and claims the nomination for the Oval Office of Power.

Act II

Norquist, waiting by the bank of the Mississippi, is visited in his sleep by his spiritual father, Reagan. He swears that no New York, pro-abortion, anti-gun flip-flopping liberal shall have the Oval.


In the cemetery at Arlington, the Rheinwidows mourn their lost troops. Rudyfried happens by; they urge him to bring the troops home and avoid the curse of Iraq, but he ignores their tidings of doom.

They swim away, predicting that Rudyfried will fail and that his heir, a lady, will treat them more fairly.

The cemetery overflows its banks, engulfing Rudyfried as the GOP bursts into flames.

The curtain falls.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
