“Now What?”

 The One Sentence That Explains Washington Dysfunction.  The political class never expected Donald Trump to become president.

…from June 16, 2015, to November 8, 2016, the feeling among the elected officials, party functionaries, consultants, strategists, and journalists in our nation's capital was that Donald J. Trump stood no chance of becoming president of the United States. And because the political elite held this view with such self-assurance, with all the egotism and snobbery and moral puffery and snarkiness that distinguishes itself as a class, it did not spend more than a second, if that, thinking through the possible consequences of a Trump victory.

Among those consequences: The expectation that Republicans might actually try to keep the promises they've made to voters over the last eight years.

That’s right, your team won; but instead of having a trip to Disney World planned you went to see a Disney movie: Finding Nemo. Of course there is a cult following that firmly believes in the conspiracy theory that Nemo is only an illusion and the movie is really about Marlin coming to terms with his loss.

No wonder they call it the stupid party.

Now what, indeed.
