Things really are in chaos in DC.
I think we all forgot that a community organizer’s #1 skill is reminding people that they’re mad at other people who hold power. So when the organizer is supporting disenfranchised people, they can force consensus by helping disenfranchised people to be noisy.
But when a community organizer is in power … shoot, what to do? Ask everyone to yell at their Congressman?? It’s working … Everyone’s yelling at their Congressmen and Congresswomen and Senators. And so they’re voting on weird procrastinatory diversions of legislation, just hoping they won’t have the face the music for one more day.
God help us all!
