DNC Convention Day 1

The best battle plan rarely survives first contact with the enemy

The Convention will be gaveled to order at 4 PM Eastern Time. That start time was pushed back because of the need for unexpected meetings. Debbie Wasserman Schultz has resigned as DNC chairman and chairman of the convention the day before the convention. Different versions say she will resign before or after the convention. Things are in flux. Donna Brazile may be the interim DNC chairman, but I’m not sure that will stick.

The Wikileaks email story has us Bernie supporters all fired up. The fix was in from before the first vote was cast (shocking!). That plan freed up a lot of Democratic voters to vote for Donald Trump in the Republican primaries with open contests.

The Bernie supporters are in Philadelphia, and about 1/3 of the delegates are Bernie’s people. You can count on them not keeping quiet. We really hate the Clintons with a passion. This convention will make 1968 one in Chicago look like a Sunday afternoon picnic. The fruits of Operation Chaos are ripe.

BTW fracking sucks!

(If you’re confused, I understand)

    Off to a good start!

    Bernie’s supporters booed Bernie when he said to
    Vote for Hillary

  3. Fred Stiening says:

    Well, the appointment of convention officers was lots of nay votes, the protests have started

    When you look in the mirror, if you see a black Hispanic lesbian with dyslexia who works for the TSA, Hillary is your man!

    Anyone care about day 2? The stain master speaks tonight

    • TheChairman says:

      My better half wanted to watch the first night for ‘infotainment’. I lost count of the number of propaganda techniques being utilized after the first hour.

      No American flags visible on the stage. Yes, the Jumbotron showed a stylized partial flag at one point, but the stars were x’s and the stripes were… ribbons?

      It seems Monday was rainbow black night. So, is tonight Hispanic night?

      • Fred Stiening says:

        The official business is the roll call vote of the states. Bernie wound up with a bit over 1,800 delegates, about 500 short

        • TheChairman says:

          In a truly democratic vote count, he’d be in a dead heat. Jim Webb dropped out a bit early, he knew the Clinton machinery, DNC, and media would steamroll anyone.

          IMO, Bernie was put out as a both a ‘trial balloon’ and to provide the appearance of ‘choice’ (the irony)… after all, they needed -someone- to sacrifice on the alter of shills.

          The DNC’s problem was, half the party was leaning to “anyone but Hillary” and suddenly the shill became ‘a contender’, so under the bus goes Wasserman-Schultz.

    Rumblings that Bernie may agree to nomination by acclimation, rather than roll call vote – however, I’m not sure Bernie can control his people
