I remember being in a campaign phone bank for a Nova Scotia byelection in the 1980’s. Volunteers were calling all the senior citizens in the riding who were registered members of the candidate’s party, asking if they needed a ride to the polls on election day – a Get Out the Vote effort.
A heavyweight party bagman (which in days gone by simply meant the man with free bottles of rum and an asphalt truck) slithered in to collect or drop off cheques.
He was flabbergasted. “Listen,” he said, “Get a list of all the seniors that are registered for the other party. Call up, tell them you’re with the other guy’s campaign and promise them a ride to the polls. Then don’t show up. If they manage to get there at all, maybe they’re so pissed off they vote for us. That’s how you win elections.”
The DNC under Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her minions was in the tank for Clinton and playing gutterball with Bernie. Well, fetch my fainting sofa and my clutching pearls!
None of that should surprise anyone.
They were doing it from the very beginning, right out in the open.
If you’re looking for reasons why Sanders didn’t win, the media alternating between ignoring the man and slandering his positions with blatant falsehoods deserves far more of your scorn than those lightweight ratfuckers.
Sadly, it’s being hoovered up like a mixture of cocaine and rocket fuel by petulant children who seem determined to elect Donald Trump.
Hell of a high wire act.

Team on. Television Anderson Cooper Candy. Crowley James. Carville John King all here. In Denver. At the Democratic National Convention which will nominate BARACKOBAMA as the Democratic candidate to face Republican John. McCain this November in the election for the 44th president of the United. States.
Someone needs to drag this sputtering troll doll into the mensroom by his neatly trimmed beard and jam his head into a toilet until he stops thrashing around and promises to learn the difference between REPORTING and MAKING SHIT UP; between news and pure, biased speculation. It’s as if the folks running the show at CNN decided that, in response to the obvious political agenda of Faux News – UNfair and UNbalanced – they opted for “We Make It Up – You Decide”.
Get it through your head, Wolf, you pathetic, wheezing, redundant fuckwit – YOU are not the news.
