I’m willing to believe that DWS was a Clinton stooge and fucked up the DNC. (I’ve never bought that the primaries were “rigged”-that’s a crock of shit that misreads the reason Sanders lost primaries.) So, I was willing to give Brazile the benefit of the doubt on her first set of revelations. But this, my friends, is bullshit:
Former Democratic National Committee head Donna Brazile writes in a new book that she seriously contemplated replacing Hillary Clinton as the party’s 2016 presidential nominee with then-Vice President Biden in the aftermath of Clinton’s fainting spell, in part because Clinton’s campaign was “anemic” and had taken on “the odor of failure.”
First, how the fuck was she going to do that? She was DNC chair, not occupant of the Iron Throne. Second, I’m not buying that she – alone – saw that Clinton was going to lose. Lots of smart people got that one way wrong. Third, how fucking dumb does she think we are?
This is just post-hoc reputation polishing and shit stirring to sell a book.
I know that Betty wrote about this topic (not this particular story) already today, and there certainly are better things to talk about, but this is nonsense on stilts. It is 2017, Bernie Sanders is too old to be a viable candidate in 2020, and we have some elections to win before then.
