The elephant in the room is … (phew) … dead.

52801Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor under Bill Clinton, recently has noticed something: The elephant isn’t moving and smells, um, ripe. In other words, it appears to be dead.

“I’m writing to you today to announce the death of the Republican Party. It is no longer a living, vital, animate organization. It died in 2016. RIP. It has been replaced by warring tribes,”

he says. It sure looks (and smells) that way to me, too. There’s the billionaire tribe, the Wall Street tribe, the corporate tribe, the evangelical tribe, the libertarian tribe, the displaced blue-collar worker tribe — the list goes on. And the GOP itself resembles, well, Somalia. Read the story here.
