"Donna Brazile: I considered replacing Clinton with Biden as 2016 Democratic nominee."

From the WaPo story:

"Whenever Brazile got frustrated with Clinton’s aides, she writes, she would remind them that the DNC charter empowered her to initiate the replacement of the nominee. If a nominee became disabled, she explains, the party chair would oversee a complicated process of filling the vacancy that would include a meeting of the full DNC.

After Clinton’s fainting spell, some Democratic insiders were abuzz with talk of replacing her — and Brazile says she was giving it considerable thought.

The morning of Sept. 12, Brazile got a call from Biden’s chief of staff saying the vice president wanted to speak with her. She recalls thinking, “Gee, I wonder what he wanted to talk to me about?” Jeff Weaver, campaign manager for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), called, too, to set up a call with his boss, and former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley sent her an email."

1. Who did she think she was?

She thinks she can decide the candidate? And she complains about Clinton?

3. Donna B. Trippin' ...

Does she really think anyone believes she had the authority to replace the chosen candidate at any point - no less seven weeks before the election?

After reading some of the excerpts from Delusional Donna's book, I can't help but wonder what her user name is at JPR.

4. She was threatening to replace the TICKET.

Why would she also replace Kaine if her reason for going nuclear was HRC's health?

8. I know - but same dif.

Who did she think would believe that anyone in the Party would even remotely consider replacing HRC and/or Kaine seven weeks before election night?

Like I said, I wonder what her JPR user name is. She seems to have swallowed the Russian bullshit about Hillary's health AND the primaries being "rigged" against Bernie - in exactly the same way JPR posters did.

Well, no matter - Donna B. Trippin' is now toast. She now has zero credibility among Dems, and the Republicans will never trust her either.

9. I agree with you.

I just wanted to point out the inconsistency in her claim that this was about HRC's "health".

Why replace Kaine if it was HRC who was "disabled"?

11. Why claim she would replace Kaine?

Why claim she could replace anyone?

Looks like Donna B. Trippin' didn't think any of this through before putting pen to paper. I guess she figured that if she was going to make shit up, she may as well go big by claiming things that don't make any sense - like, as you say, replacing Kaine due to Hillary's alleged illness.

It's almost as if Donna B. caught a fatal case of Trumpitude - lie about things that (a) don't make sense, and (b) are full of holes you could drive a bus through.

13. The republicans may never trust her,

but they sure as shit will use her. The ads are probably already being written.

She does seem to be a great fit for JPR. I wonder if she posts by candlelight with gospel music playing in the background?

15. They'll use her ...

... but she'll have a very short shelf-life.

As for the candlelight and gospel music - yeah, I can see that.

14. Hillary was anemic. Really.

Was that a medical fact or her diagnosis?

12. This is some Trump level narcissism and delusion.

Threatening to replace a national candidate whenever you want to sounds nutty.
