2. All I got is this. Clinton fundraising leaves little for state parties

The Democratic front-runner says she's raising big checks to help state committees, but they've gotten to keep only 1 percent of the $60 million raised.



But less than 1 percent of the $61 million raised by that effort has stayed in the state parties’ coffers, according to a POLITICO analysis of the latest Federal Election Commission filings.

3. Not been paying much attention, have ya?

 

HRC has been doing fundraisers for quite some time, like the Clooney fundraiser. Most of the money goes to the DNC to dole out to the candidates. Bernie finally gave in to the pressure and is backing one person running for the Senate - one. He has also said he is backing three people running for the House. So no. Bernie hasn't done jack shit for down ticket Democrats running for office except bad mouth the Party. I find it incredulous that such an assertion could be made about HRC.

5. Nope, and not going to. That is of FEC public record and you can contact the DNC for more.

 

Surely you know about that Clooney fundraiser anyway. Bernie finally decided to help ONE Democrat running for the US Senate last week. ONE. Evidently he or his followers have no idea that it will take at least a Democrat majority in the Senate to get anything moving. Oh, and by the vote totals going back to the WI primary, Bernie's followers did not vote for downticket Democrats. again, this is all of public record.

6. We'd have to wait til the fall for that. Unlike Bernie and his Canova-propping-up,

Hillary doesn't try to primary incumbent Democrats,

8. So let me get this straight

You think we should all just rally around DWS because she is an incumbent? Sounds like that.

She has hurt the Party and both candidates in this race. Primary the shit out of her

9. I have no problem at all with DWS, and neither do most actual Democrats

The BoBs don't matter.

12. Then you are woefully out of touch with most Democrats

Wasserman Schultz has also infuriated progressives. Even though she's the titular head of the party, she's dissented from the right on many occasions. She's supported fast-track trade negotiation authority, opposed medical marijuana, and dragged her heels on the Iran nuclear deal (though she ultimately got behind it late in the game). And notoriously, when she ran the DCCC's "Red to Blue" program in 2008, she refused to help a trio of South Florida Democrats running against incumbent Republicans—because those Republicans were her friends.


Just one of countless pieces you can find on your friend. She did a great job during the midterms too.

16. Thank ya kindly, Gator, but at this point, I'm just tired.

Democrats aren't what I grew up believing them to be anymore; and I'm honestly at a loss for how to feel about it.
