I generally LOVE TYT, and Cenk's rants, but this is really off-base IMHO.
Lessig is a "total distraction" (to quote Thom Hartman). Yes, he's a smart
guy, but he's just a guy wanting to sell more of his most recent book. He
is not a serious candidate for POTUS.
Yes, he's spot-on about getting big money out of elections, but that's his
ENTIRE platform. period. <-- it's about his book.
Plus, it's redundant. Bernie already has this as one of his TOP priorities.
Plus, there is so much more to the debate debacle that Cenk didn't even
touch on, like having them all either on weekends and/or just before
major holidays, when viewership is notoriously low.
Plus Cenk gives no credit to O'Malley and Bernie for their challenging the
DNC on the lack of debates, as he barely even mentions Bernie and doesn't
even mention O'Malley once (unless I missed it).
Weird. Sorry Cenk. Fail.
I thought I was the only one that HATES cenks rants about Lessig. The part regarding DWS/DNC was a good analysis, so that's why I shared. I wish I could just delete the part about Lessig hahahhaha.
PS: TH is the best, he's always on point.
He issues a BERN NOTICE, and does it with great gusto. LOL.
I've voted Democratic for over 40 years, often holding my nose while doing so because of the un-Democratic beliefs of those for whom I am voting.
Now we have at least one real champion. Heck, I love Bernie Sander, like O'Malley, and I can live with Hillary Clinton even.
What I can't live with is a rigged system, power plays, lies.
If they don't fix this debate process, and have more debates and do the reasonable thing that everybody who is not biased knows is reasonable, they are going to lose so many voters, volunteers, energy, spirit, they simply have no idea.
It's a sign of just how disconnected and feelingless and brainwashed and heartless they are that they don't understand the true passion of someone who really believes in something or someone.
Continue to disappoint those people, show them a rigged system, and they aren't just going to easily forgive and forget!!!!
It's an easy thing to do. Sit down with O'Malley and Sanders or their people, and fashion a debate schedule that gives a fair hearing to everybody, so that the electorate can make an informed choice. Do not twist logic all out of proportion to disguise your lying, thieving, conniving, power play ways.
Just not going to work this time.
And thank you Bernie and O'Malley for giving such good examples of how it can and should be different.
