I know that Tom Perez was installed by the shitty people still in charge of the DNC, but I have to wonder if his job is to make the Democratic Party as vile as can be in the eyes of most people outside of that party. Roughly about 30% of the country identifies with the Democrats now, and I can’t imagine those on the left in that party aren’t at least thinking about jumping ship. Just in the last few weeks, there is this stupid, poorly thought out lawsuit, which even hack “centrists” in the party realize is stupid, then there is Perez literally breaking his party’s charter to personally endorses Cuomo over Nixon, despite claiming that the chair of the DNC would no longer do those kind of things. Cause you know, as people mentally competent enough to eat soup, there seems to be very obvious lessons to be learned from the 2016 election for people like Perez. People on this site and on TV want to always wag their fingers at the left, but we were correct about what would happen if Clinton got the nomination, not them, and look at what they had to do to get her over the victory line, only to lose to the most unpopular major party nominee in history, by a long shot.
It is pretty amazing though, after we learned about what that party did in 2016, after we have seen what the DCCC has done in this cycle, after the Hoyer tape came out, and countless other things, this rotten, dying party wants to pretend to be doing this because they care so much about democracy. They could show it by democratizing their own party, and getting rid of things like superdelegates, but I guess this insane lawsuit is far better for people that are really, really bad at political strategizing.
The thing is, Perez cannot be removed from his position. If he was, there is no way it wouldn’t be given to Ellison, and they won’t allow that ot happen. And the DNC chair also gets to look at the party’s books, to see who it is paying, who it has contracts with, etc. No way in hell anyone but an empty crook like Perez would be given that power. So, Perez, the Clintons, Pelosi, Feinstein and the rest will let the party die before they allow it to be anything better than it is.
