To quote Veronica Mars, “Okay, so apparently looks really can’t kill.”
Yesterday at the DNC summer meeting in Minneapolis, former Maryland Governor and Democrat Presidential candidate Martin O’Malley made the mistake of criticizing the DNC for what he considers “rigged” debates.
And nobody was more displeased by his criticisms than DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. Check out the daggers as she joins him on stage.
Uh-oh! If looks could kill.
O’Malley has been claiming all along that, in an effort to shield the presumptive nominee, the DNC is slow-walking debates and downplaying her opponents.
Trust me. He isn’t imagining it.
One look at Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s face and you know he’s not imagining it.
Debbie Downer needs Hillary to be the nominee more than she needs Pantene Curl Perfection Conditioner.
And like every other Democrat with power, she will use her position as DNC Chair to undercut those who stand in her way.
For all the talk of the “civil war” in the Republican Party, the real turmoil is found in the DNC.
They are hemorrhaging support and enthusiasm due in large part to two people.
Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
Obama has so deeply damaged the Democrat brand by pushing the party ever further to the Socialist/Marxist Left. In doing so, the mythical “blue dog Democrat” is more extinct than the Dodo bird. Blue collar, working class Democrats have been tossed aside in support of illegal aliens and the phony “Climate Change” push. Obama’s demand for ideological purity far surpasses anything we’ve ever seen before.
Then there’s Hillary Clinton. By ramming Hillary down the throats of Democrat voters despite her mounting legal problems and her obvious incompetence as a campaigner is leaving a bad taste in the mouths of those who consider themselves die-hard Democrats. The enthusiasm gap between Republican voters and Democrat voters is so wide, Michelle Obama could fit through it without having to suck in her gut.
Trust me. O’Malley is toast. Looks may not kill. But there’s more than one way to starve a campaign. And DNC-Debbie will use every resource at her disposal to shut O’Malley down.
