SORRY THE BEST I COULD DO
Monday marks what was supposed to be first session of the Clinton Inauguration by the Democrats as the entitled POTUS.
If Hypnos who has commanded my time too often this past weeks doesn’t interfere I shall watch this Convention at least the prime time events and Colbert’s post session monologue.
Oh those Clinton haunting e-mails! Not just the Secretary of State but now those of the Democrat National Committee that have confirmed Senator Sander’s charges that the DNC instead of being impartial as reputed was actively supporting Hilary.
The result is going to be a Convention clouded in animosity with a substantial portion of the party seeking revenge. The resignation of DNC Chairperson Debbie Wasserman Schultz may not be enough to heal wounds.
Not only did the DNC play the religious card against Trump earlier but against Sanders
"At issue is a May 5 email leaked Friday by Wikileaks, in which Brad Marshall, the DNC’s chief financial officer, suggested that the party should “get someone to ask” about “his” religious beliefs. “It might [make] no difference, but for KY and WVA can we get someone to ask his belief,” the message says, presumably referring to Kentucky and West Virginia. “Does he believe in a God? He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he is an atheist. This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist.”
The email was sent to several top DNC officials — CEO Amy Dacey, communications director Luis Miranda and deputy communications director Mark Paustenbach. Marshall followed up two minutes later with this short message: “It’s these [sic] Jesus thing.”
Dacey’s response: “AMEN.” (JTA News 7/24/16)
This is unfortunately just one more episode that is making the choice between the egomaniac dogmatic messenger of doom and hatred and the Queen of deceit and above the law a most difficult one.
At this point in time the one with the populist backing represents a greater danger to Constitutional Democracy than the known practitioner of political skill.
We do have three months to decide who the lesser evil is. What a sad state of affairs.
