With all that happened last week in politics one thing sticks in my head. Nancy ripping her copy of the State Of The Union speech. Of course it was symbolic, but symbolic of what?
Yes she doesn’t like Trump, or his speech. That is her stated reason for ripping the speech. I suppose it’s her copy, and she can do what she wants with it. Yet, the job is not done till the paperwork is done. Paperwork no longer matters? I am no fan of paperwork, and oddly find it satisfying to just rip up something that you don’t like, yet I never do it. Consequences you know.
So what will be the consequences, nothing? It was Nancy’s copy, she can do with it what she pleases. The symbolism of defiance is well worth the value of a signed copy.
Or, is it the emblematic end of the party, the party? Check Mate by Trump.
Defiance or defeat. The story is not finished yet, the conclusion has not played out. Yet the moment was there. Next the great scramble for the spoils.
Money, Unions, Media, they are now on their own. Some unable to adapt, will twitch till their demise. Some will reinvent themselves, evolving with the times. However the traditional Democrat Party is dead. Bloomberg is buying up the remains, motives unclear.
The king is dead, long live the king.
