DNC Still Tone Deaf

I was shredding some DNC mail the other day and noticed a remarkably tone-deaf appeal: I should solemnly sign their petition objecting to Trump's actions and help them send it to the White House. I guffawed at the thought Donald Trump would give a rat's ass about what some Californian Democrat thought. Maybe I shredded DNC mail too quickly. Someone should collect these mutants and make a display:
And that brings me back to Brazile and her emails to me. In her most recent one she speaks about how Republicans have “sunk to new lows.”

“Every time I think Republicans have sunk as low as they can, they manage to find a way to go lower.” She then lists a number of ways that the Trump team has insulted our democratic traditions.

And, while she may be right, she is clearly not the right person to be trying to make that point. In fact she is the last, or at least near the last, of the DNC deplorables who should be trying to send messages to those on the left asking for support of the party.

As her email closes Brazile cautions that once one discovers that a group has tried to undermine our democracy we should expect more of the same: “this isn’t the first time Donald Trump and his cronies have tried to undermine our democracy, and it won’t be the last.”

It’s an astonishing example of a lack of self-reflection, self-awareness and political sense. Brazile was busted for being unethical, she then tried to cover it up, and when forced, she issued a half-assed apology.

But she has the nerve to end her email saying: “We have to keep pushing back . . . and do everything in our power to protect our right to vote.”
