NOVEMBER 2022–The dismal results pour in, adding to the dismay of the beleaguered conservatives. After Nancy Pelosi regained the Speaker’s gavel in 2016, she had had the power to ram through a rule for seniority in the House of Representatives to be hereditary, paving the way for her daughter, Christine to take the Pelosi seat in 2018. Harry Reid, who never saw a bad idea he could not embrace, adopted this for the Senate, allowing Rory Reid to carry on the family tradition of cretinism.
Also reporting for duty in January 2023 will be Pat Moran, who, despite a lengthy trail of female wreckage that some feminists were beginning to label ‘worrisome’, carried his district by the usual 2:1 margin. The Feminist bleatings were really about inoculating Moran, now that he was assuming office. The voters in Virginia’s 8th district had no affection whatsoever for the fop, but the Constitutional order was so demolished that, even were a resurrected George Washington to emerge from his crypt at Mount Vernon, he’d have fared no better at the ballot box than Tevin Kranor, the Republican candidate.
Truly, the fundamental change begun under Barack Obama had resulted in the final collapse into a single, United State was complete. Yet the country was only halfway through Michelle Obama’s second term. The two chambers of Congress chiefly differed on their election frequency, but the idea of hereditary positions in government was sufficiently ingrained that Sacha Obama was testing well in the focus groups to relieve her mother.
Orwell had nearly been correct. The point was not to control the past; plenty of valid history books remained to be purged. The more attainable goal was to bury the signal in noise.
