Your Betters Know What’s Best For You: DNC - Democracy NOT In Action

DNC Elite Rules Michigan and Florida Split 50-50 for Obama and Clinton

no delegates for Edwards and all others who were in the race at that time

Democratic leaders struck a long-awaited compromise over the disputed Florida and Michigan primaries Saturday evening in Washington, D.C., flying over objections from the Hillary Clinton campaign and agreeing to give both delegations half their vote at the party’s August convention.

The deal was reached after members of a Democratic National Committee rules panel spent all day bargaining and met privately for more than three hours. Members announced their plan to a raucous hearing room that reflected deep divisions within the party. Both states had their delegations initially stripped for holding early primaries in violation of party rules.

There it is folks. Out of all the possible stupid decisions, the Ruling Elite that rules the Ruling Elite has made the stupidest possible decision. But it’s “fair”!!!!! What a crock.

Early on in this primary season, both Florida and Michigan decided that they wanted to have earlier primaries. Perhaps they were tired of being fill-in states, part of the great mass of not-really-important states that merely reflect the trend that their masters - the DNC, the MSM, the Unions - have already decided on. So they announced that they were moving their primaries up. And the mighty DNC - more powerful than a locomotive, faster than a speeding Prius, able to leap to amazing conclusions in a single bound - told them not to. Told them that if they moved their primaries up, they wouldn’t be counted. Keep your place in line, do what you’re told, don’t cause problems by asserting any kind of independence, or you’ll get smacked. The states didn’t listen. They stuck to their guns and expressed a States Rights belief that they could hold their state primaries any damn time they wanted to, and they did. So the all-knowing DNC put the twist on the candidates, and told them their knickers would get twisted if they campaigned in those states, or were even on the ballot. And most of the candidates complied. But not Hillary. While she herself wasn’t actively campaigning in those states, her people were, and when the votes were cast she came out the big winner. Though if I can remember that far back in this never-ending cycle of somnolence, good old “undeclared” took a large number of the votes in both states too. And the mighty DNC, the king-maker, spoke forth and said “neener neener neener! Your votes don’t count!”

And so the fun began. Months go by. No solutions. Millions upon millions of dollars are spent in advertising, millions are spent currying favor, millions of people are bored to the point of retarded drooling over the constant hammering of Clinton vs. Obama on the news, every channel, every day, everywhere, 24-7. And time slips by. Could the DNC have coughed up the cash to do a re-vote? Of course. Expensive? Sure, but all they had to do was ask George Soros, and he would have funded the whole thing out of petty cash. Could they have stuck to their guns and said “tough luck, you broke the rules no suffer for it”? Of course. Nope, they didn’t do a thing. Because that would require making a decision, and you can’t have that unless it’s at the very possible last second. After almost all of the other primaries are run. And the solution they found is nearly Zero Sum. In other words it don’t make a bit of difference. Idiots.

“This body of 30 individuals has decided that they’re going to substitute their judgment for 600,000 voters — now that’s what I call democracy,” Clinton adviser and committee member Harold Ickes said in the closing moments of debate, saying the Michigan plan would be “hijacking” delegates from Clinton.

Yeah, kinda sucks when the system plays you for a change instead of the usual other way around, don’t it Harry boy?

The Clinton campaign echoed Ickes’ remarks in a written statement, saying the Florida decision is a “victory” for them but that they reserve the right to challenge the Michigan deal.

“This decision violates the bedrock principles of our democracy and our Party,” the statement said.

But, but, what does democracy have to do with being a Democrat in the first place? This is the party of No Voter ID. The party of Every Vote Counts - Especially the Illegals. The party where the dead of Chicago vote more often than the living. If it didn’t give me a coughing fit I’d be laughing my ass off here. What amazing hypocracy.

The committee agreed on a compromise offered by the Michigan Democratic Party that would split the difference, allowing Clinton to take 69 delegates and Obama 59. Each delegate would get half a vote at the convention in Denver this summer, according to the deal.

The deal passed 19-8. Thirteen members of the committee supported Clinton, so she wasn’t even able to keep her supporters together.

The committee also unanimously agreed to seat the Florida delegation based on the outcome of the January primary, with 105 pledged delegates for Clinton and 67 for Obama, but with each delegate getting half a vote as a penalty.

Proponents of full seating continuously interrupted the committee members as they explained their support of the compromise, then supporters of the deal shouted back.

“Shut up!” one woman shouted at another.

“You shut up!” the second woman shouted back.

Ah, the sophisticated nuance of such a decision. It is beyond my simple mind to encompass. It’s the kind of compromise solution that can usually only be developed by little girls in the 3rd grade. And it is just so obviously right, so perfect, that the entire group was swept up in the rapture of it’s perfection. Yeah, right, as they yelled and screamed and tried to claw each others eyes out. Just like little girls in the 3rd grade.

The decision of the Rules and Bylaws Committee does not drastically change the delegate math.

Yeah, except that it does. Totally. See, not only did they pull numbers out of their raw boned little asses, they gave delegates to a candidate who didn’t earn any. But they cut the “power” of those delegates in half, “as a penalty”, which completely changes the long standing Necessary Number. Because the DNC is so superior it can even defy basic addition, and rewrite the rules whenever it damn well feels like it, even almost all the way through the primary season.

And that’s how they make every vote count. And reflect the will of the people. And the voter’s intent. By telling everyone what’s best for them. And the most painful part of it all? By Monday morning the message will have been hammered into Dem’s heads so well that they will all be in favor of this decision. Because it’s “fair”. And it makes every vote count. At least a little bit. Especially the ones that weren’t even cast. What a retarded bunch of sheep.
