Brazile’s Nuts

I’ve been actively trying to NOT comment on Donna Brazile’s new book being excerpted everywhere. I have always blamed Brazile for the political malpractice of the Al Gore campaign (it should never have been so close that inbred, idiot, SOB Chimpy McStagger could steal it), and for the campaign picking Traitor Joe to be the VP was just the eff’ing cherry on top.

If you want to think about the anatomy of a fuck-up, all you have to do is note that the Gore campaign, led by Donna Brazile, did not ask for a recount for the entire state of Florida, only for a couple of counties.

And the rest is history.

Thanks a lot, Donna.

I never understood why the Sunday Talkies made her a regular guest, she added nothing, not even comic relief. Her positions are doctrinaire DLC, and those clowns are not even capable of organizing a 1-car funeral procession down main street even using a self-driving car. (See Traitor Joe, above.)

Anyway, today’s book excerpt is eff’ing’ magnificent, as we learn that Brazile wanted to replace Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee:

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.”

[Ed. Brazile has a certain amount of expertise in the odor of failure. But I digress.]

In an explosive new memoir, Brazile details widespread dysfunction and dissension throughout the Democratic Party, including secret deliberations over using her powers as interim DNC chair to initiate the removal of Clinton and running mate Sen. Tim Kaine (Va.) from the ticket after Clinton’s Sept. 11, 2016, collapse in New York City.

Brazile writes that she considered a dozen combinations to replace the nominees and settled on Biden and Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.), the duo she felt most certain would win over enough working-class voters to defeat Republican Donald Trump. But then, she writes, “I thought of Hillary, and all the women in the country who were so proud of and excited about her. I could not do this to them.”

Freaking noble of you, Brazile, not to decree a new nominee who hadn’t even run in the 2016 Goat Rodeo, because women’s feelings would be hurt. You just set feminism back a decade.

But more than that, Cory Booker? Seriously? What, was Traitor Joe suddenly unavailable? You thought of Corey Booker when you thought of working class voters? Wall Street Corey?

Just as a reminder, yesterday’s Brazile bombshell was confirming that the process was rigged (it wasn’t, but she oddly claimed that the same documents signed by both campaigns rigged it, and I might add that these were the same boilerplate documents all the campaigns going all the way back to at least to the, a-hem, Gore campaign), and now today she’s proving it: she was planning on replacing the candidate herself which is the definition of rigging it. Here she goes again:

“Again and again I thought about Joe Biden,” Brazile writes. But, she adds, “No matter my doubts and my fears about the election and Hillary as a candidate, I could not make good on that threat to replace her.”

Anyway, I guess Brazile is never going to work in DC again, so she’s burning that bridge.

Thanks a lot Donna. Your strategic excellence and commitment to party continues apace.

    I wouldn’t have thought even the DLC could find a better way to loose the election, but replacing the candidate with a month and a half to go would probably top their proven incompetency.

    What the hell? Donna Brazile certainly burned her bridges with both Progressives and even DLC-ers, I would imagine. What a stupid thing to write. I actually didn’t know her role in Gore’s campaign (was working in Indonesia long-term at the time). But that just further angers me.

    Donna Brazile reminds me of a line used on the late Senator “Scoop” Jackson: If she gave a fireside chat the fire would go out.

    Oh fuck no, this is all wrongheaded.

    What kind of a muppet Brazile was, or is, matters not at all.

    What matters is that there is now news reports which confirm what the Berniebots were saying all along, that there was an arrangement for gaming the primary system to advance HRC’s candidacy before a single vote was cast.
    That confirmation is not just from Brazile, it’s also from Warren and I promise you there will be others.

    The right move now is for the Dems to jump on this with a proactive campaign to acknowledge there’s a problem, abolish the superdelegate system, and transparently re-tool the party structure ASAP with a particular eye to clawing back some of that erosion of trust in their traditional electoral base.

    If they don’t, if they just wait until the Russian/Trumpian/GOP agitprop machine starts really going to town on this issue (it’s started already), they’ll be stuck in reactive mode for evermore and the agitprop will pry that crack into a potentially schismatic chasm that you could drive a bus through, and which will compromise the campaigns of a whole lot of Dems whose candidacies we really need to succeed.

    Remember, the agitprop doesn’t have to be true, it just has to be effective. And with this, zeroed in on what is already an identity convulsion within the Dem party, effective is exactly what it will be.

    Is the party establishment imaginative to see this? To head this free gift to the agitprop whizz kids off at the pass and take control of the narrative right out of the box?

    No, of course not. So the reactive flailing will continue, and so will the electoral losses.

    We’re fucked.

      There are two chances any of that will happen.


  5. There have been four presidential elections in US history where the popular vote winner nonetheless lost in the Electoral College (leaving out JQAdams, who was decided by the House).

    She’s been deeply involved in half of those elections…
