“A Paragon of Party Discipline And Unity” – The Democratic Party

July 25, 2016

This is what was promised according the New York Times, “a paragon of party discipline and unity”. After viewing the Republican convention in Cleveland last week, especially the first day when there was a lot of dissension on the floor over RNC rules Mrs. Clinton (Hildebeast) promised her supporters:

“I can tell you we’re going to have a very different kind of convention.”

Unfortunately for Mrs. Clinton, the Bernie apparatchiks refused to fall in line. never vote for hillary



Bernie or bustIt all came apart with the WikiLeaks release of 20,000 Democratic National Committee emails days before the convention spotlighting concerted effort by party leaders, most especially Debbie Wasserman Schultz (DWS), head of the DNC and Representative from the State of Florida, to undermine Bernie Sanders. She’s supposed to be neutral after all, but WikiLeaks had the goods on her and many others.

WikiLeaks also revealed that the Democratic Party and Politico have a special relationship where party operatives get to review and offer comment on stories Politico will publish. How nice for them that they get to shape the narrative right out the gate.

There are plenty of Bernie supporters who are still feeling slighted regarding the power the super delegates have over actual voters and the WikiLeaks release of the emails sent the boat over the falls. DWS realizing she was not going to survive this agreed to step down after the convention and the DNC stripped her of her speaking slot. Then she was booed at the opening day breakfast and had to whisked off the stage by security and it may just be over for Debbie. It was her party, her big event but it imploded because of her own corruption and I wouldn’t be surprised (or disappointed) if she loses her House seat too!

The New Non-Race Race Card

November 2, 2011

Why of course it’s sexual harassment. But it’ s pretty laughable when the accuser, or at lease one of the anonymous accusers would like to tell her story but can’t due to a gag order placed on her at the time of settlement. And Politico who broke the “story” won’t reveal it’s sources which is understandable, but they’re loving the story and have kept it hot when God only knows we should maybe be focused on the up again down stock market or Europe about to implode.

It would have pretty weak to play the race card here like they have at every turn smearing Tea Party candidates or supporters, and likewise, if you disagree with Obama’s policies, you’re a racist, but since Cain’s supporters love the man because of his ideas and character and his bootstrap success despite being a black man whose father worked 3 jobs until he could make it on 2 job,and eventually pulled his family solidly into the middle class, the race card is a non-starter here, that just won’t fly. So sexual harassment is the next best thing.

Is Cain handling this poorly? Maybe a little, but he’s no John Edwards or Anthony Weiner and just isn’t schooled in the muck of politics. Apparently Herman Cain’s campaign has received a boost in cash donations and that’s good. Now he can go hire some more staff (hopefully some more seasoned political advisers) to suss these things out ahead of time and teach him how to wrap them up quickly.Of course when if you get someone too fancy-dancy, they’ll kill the real appeal Cain has -that he is not an insider politician.

One thing you can bet, the longer Cain stays in front or gives Romney any kind of a run, the more of this we’ll be seeing.

Aloha, Mikie
