The real meaning of family politics.

As you might have guessed, I think that one of the telling moments in the lead-up to the Settlepocalypse was when Elly told Connie that her primary reason for preferring Clarice Caine to Mira Sobinski is that unlike a certain domineering monster who wants to enslave the Pattersons with her family politics, Anthony's mother has the decency to be cowed by the Sainted Martyr Flapandhonk.

What this tells me is that when Elly and the others make their asinine comments about family politics, it's obvious as anything that Elly is still burning with resentment because Mira behaved as if she were somehow or other able to tell them all what to do. This is a no-no when interacting with Patterswine because they hate the idea of not being given final say over how does what, cultural norms be damned. It doesn't matter to Elly that the mother of the bride is generally recognized as being the ones calling the shots because she can't take being told what to do by anyone. It's a reminder that she doesn't have a clue what to do and she hates the reminder that she's a dithering imbecile.
