I can only speculate that the “permanent political class” (Thanks, Sarah) are comfortable enough personally in their wealth and connections that they do not sense the disenfranchisement the middle class and below is experiencing.
Rocking the boat may serve us, but not them and they run the Repub machine.
Drinking single malt Scotch and expensive wine while the Titanic takes a list, they are oblivious to the tipping point.
Here in steerage we have a different view.
We’re the ones going to drown when we run aground
The permanent political class and the media believe that they will never be touched by the mess they have created.
Are they going to be surprised.
