Democrats asked for this when they decided to hand Hillary Clinton the Democratic nomination rather than make her earn it. The DNC began by rigging the debates to expose Clinton, a gaffe-artist in the rarefied league of Joe Biden but less amusing, as little as possible. It got itself a bizarre, non-competitive opponent to provide nominal opposition, Bernie Sanders—too old, not a Democrat, abrasive, deluded—who cooperated by refusing to attack Clinton where she was vulnerable. He didn’t want to win, you see. Bernie Sanders just wanted to spout Socialist propaganda in the hopes of rotting the brains of the same impressionable young who still think Barack Obama is a leader who brought hope and change.
Oddly, the Democratic leadership had forgotten how our current unqualified, weak and hapless POTUS got elected: he’s President only because Hillary Clinton can’t beat anyone fair and square. She’s dislikable and untrustworthy, and the “vote for my sex organs” bit only goes so far. Now her campaign is in trouble, and Sanders is threatening to make some super-delegates ( the way Democrats rig their nominating process, allowing them to ridicule Republicans for looking for ways to block Donald Trump) change their plans. He and his supporters see blood in the water, and are finally sharpening their attacks on Hillary.
What??? Actually attacking one’s opponent? This cannot be borne! Thus the Hillary campaign has told Sanders that he must “change his tone” or the Pre-Anointed Nominee won’t deign to debate with him, so there. “Let’s see if he goes back to the kind of tone he said he was going to set early on. If he does that, then we’ll talk about debates,” Hillary’s spokesperson told CNN.
This is a new low in candidate arrogance, presumptuousness and entitlement, even for a Clinton. Hillary and Sanders, as well as the biased media that is rooting for them, have repeatedly mocked the harsh Republican debates, where all the candidates—well, except Ben Carson and Chis Christie—were actually trying to win. Now Clinton, presumably with the backing of the Democratic National Committee, is demanding that Sanders pull his punches as a condition of letting Democrats see them go head-to-head. “Be a weenie, Bernie,” she demands,“or you can’t be anything at all.”
If Sanders capitulates to this, he is a weenie, meaning incompetent, cowardly, and too weak to lead anything but a panel discussion. What he should do is bone up on Hillary’s email scandal, and point out to her corrupted base, humming with their fingers in their ears, just how devious and untrustworthy she is.
