The 47% Video and Coleridge’s “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner”

__________

I can’t help but think the 47% video will sink Mitt Romney’s presidential bid, and it recalls for me these lines from “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner”:

Under the water it rumbled on,

Still louder and more dread:

It reached the ship, it split the bay;

The ship went down like lead.
