After much ado, and by ado I mean using words like “you bet your ass” and “hijacking”, Harold Ickes did not get his own way at the May 31 meeting of the DNC Rules and Bylaws committee.
And so he pouted, took his toys and went home because Hillary Clinton, a person whom Ickes thinks “deserves” the presidential nomination simply because she exists, wasn’t going to get his own way.
On a final note: can you ever image a time when the Republican National Committee or for that matter the Republicans in general, would ever have a nationally televised, open conversation about how their party shoud proceed. The Democrats, while not perfect, did it with transparency, class, and unity, something the Republicans not only can’t even dream of, they don’t want to dream of it. That’s why the country is turning Democrat. They have seen the lies and secrecy and are sick to death of it.
With a threat of going to the Credentials Committee, poor Harold Ickes isn’t going to get an overpaid, overstuffed, privileged, elitist position in the Hillary Clinton administration because it isn’t going to exist.
Ickes, like Clinton, thinks the rules don’t apply to him. Well, guess what, they do. Neither Ickes nor Clinton would recognize fair play if it stood up and slapped them in the face. And right now, I think a slap in the face is the only gesture that either of them would understand.
And to the Clinton supporters in the room at the Committee meeting: Shut the fuck up!!
You have no idea how to participate in a democracy and if you don’t like how real democracy works, with all of its benefits (one of them being the fact that you can attend a meeting like this) and flaws, then move to Darfur, or Burma, and then crawl back and scratch at the border begging to get back in.
Donna Brazile’s mother said it best. “Rules are rules, and if you don’t play by the rules, then you are a cheater”. Touch any nerves Hillary?
