Here’s what you do. Have a contest where everyone buys a lottery ticket and then you have one chosen from all the tickets, and the ticket purchaser gets a big prize! That’s great right? Now here’s a cool idea, tell everyone that the contest is canceled, but you go ahead and buy a ticket “just to be nice”. Then, you say “Um, since a ticket was bought, we should have the drawing!” Then, you get the prize! Great plan, right?
No? What’s wrong with that?
Oh yeah, it’s stupid. No, not stupid, it’s cheating. No, worse than that, it’s pandemoronapathetic! (It’s a new word that means “a lot of people were incredibly stupid, knew it, and didn’t care”). And it’s exactly what Hillary Clinton is trying to get away with. Her words (from Ezra Klein at The American Prospect):
I hear all the time from people in Florida and Michigan that they want their voices heard in selecting the Democratic nominee.
I believe our nominee will need the enthusiastic support of Democrats in these states to win the general election, and so I will ask my Democratic convention delegates to support seating the delegations from Florida and Michigan. I know not all of my delegates will do so and I fully respect that decision. But I hope to be President of all 50 states and U.S. territories, and that we have all 50 states represented and counted at the Democratic convention.
I hope my fellow potential nominees will join me in this.
I will of course be following the no-campaigning pledge that I signed, and expect others will as well.
What’s crazy about this is that she makes it sound like she’s trying to do something nice for everybody. And her supporters think it’s great. And it’s totally consistent with what we’ve always seen from the Clinton machine. “Let’s sell our military grade technology to the Chinese” or “I don’t even know Mr. Hsu”, or “I never had …”, oh, never mind. Bill and Hillary can stand in front of a broken cookie jar with melted chocolate chips all over their faces and calmly say “I have no idea what you’re talking about”, and get away with it. It is scary.
Clinton is doing nothing short of attempting to perpetrate outright fraud while the whole world watches her knowing what she is doing and just letting it happen. If anybody thinks that her suggestion is even remotely a topic for discussion they are clearly moronapathetic (just one person that doesn’t care that they’re being stupid).
What’s worse than the pure stupidity of this topic, is the offense it is to our political system. The rights we hold so dear, the Constitution that provides the framework for our country’s polity, the party systems that promote integrity and fairness to deciding on candidates for election are all contemptuous to the Clinton’s. Our ability to laugh away the indignity of the callous attitudes of our politicians when they grab for power and take personal advantage of their position needs to stop, or we might as well give up. Our love for our freedoms and system of government mean NOTHING if we continue to sit idly by while people like Hillary progress toward total, corrupted, self-serving theft of our nation.
In some villages in Ecuador, they have a little ceremony they take you through if you’re caught stealing… photo to the right.>>>>
So, to recap, Hillary is evil. If you sit and watch her be evil and do nothing, you are worse than evil (moronapathetic, remember?). Got it? So get off your duff and do something now!
