Some people say it's foolish to worry about soulless creatures overtaking the earth and devouring our brains.
I say they've already won.
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Chum In The Water
How is it that no one else has noticed the serendipitous announcement of Paul Ryan for Veep with Shark Week?
Here quoteth the Quint: Sometimes that shark he looks right into ya. Right into your eyes. And, you know, the thing about a shark… he’s got lifeless eyes. Black blue eyes. Like a doll’s eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn’t seem to be living… until he bites ya, and those black blue eyes roll over white and then… ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin’. The ocean turns red, and despite all the poundin’ and the hollerin’, they all come in and they… rip you to pieces. Sounds like a House Budget meeting to me.
