The supreme irony is so thick in the air it is almost stifling. Many times over this lengthy political wrestling match the DP had the opportunity to change course, or just by being impartial and forward-thinking, to let the course change by its own natural pent-up volition. Instead they stubbornly insisted on nominating one of the most polarizing political personalities of our lifetime. Many of us said: "If you don't want to lose to the Republicans, don't nominate her." Near the end of the primary process many different polls using various approaches showed that Sanders polled better than Clinton against all the possible Republican contenders. And again: "If you don't want to lose to the Republicans, don't nominate her."
And now as it is becoming increasingly apparent that she may in fact lose to the Republicans, the DP emissaries of doom come here, as I'm sure to other enclaves of contrarianism, and berate us for THEIR fucking mistake.
OK. If irony isn't your bag, let's try on disingenuousness, or outright dishonesty. With increasing frequency now Clinton and her campaign claim to adopt those measures in those amounts that Sanders was campaigning on and she was either pooh-poohing or actively tearing down. But she/they chose not him, but a running mate that most resembles a Republican within the Democrat fold. All of those luminaries that are either shoo-ins or under consideration as her advisors, strategists, or cabinet members views like a rogues gallery of perpetrators of the economic dysfunction and inequality that is burning through the electorate. What am I going to believe, her/them or my lying eyes?
Don't tell me about the Democratic Party of FDR, the New Deal, or Johnson's Great Society - Bill and his gang smothered its withered body with a pillow during the first Clinton Administration. What we have now is the Democratic Wing of the Military Industrial Complex. Even the President, if he steps out of line is countermanded, as in the US airstrike on the Syrian Army to wreck his cooperation deal with Russia. Will those responsible be court-martialed? Was Petraeus court-martialed for gross incompetence, conduct unbecoming, dereliction of duty, or espionage? Hell, it won't even be investigated! Scariest part is, where Obama has shown some hesitation at times, Hillary is completely on-board with military aggression, and always has been.
And lastly, but certainly not least: nobody is going to give a good damn who is on the Supreme Court when it is no longer the highest court in the land.
