Florida and Michigan Democrats: Tell Donna Brazile to Take a Running Jump


Noting that the Democratic National Committee, as urged by Donna “Colin Powell is a Token” Brazile, stripped Florida and Michigan of any say in picking the Democratic nominee, while Floridian and Michigan voices count in the selection of the Republican, we encourage voters in those states to thank Donna Brazile appropriately by voting for the Republican Presidential candidate. We also encourage our readers in Florida and Michigan to make this point in letters to the editor.

DNC Strips Florida Of 2008 Delegates
No Convention Slots Unless Later Primary Is Set

…The DNC’s rules and bylaws committee, which enforces party rules, voted yesterday morning to strip Florida of all its delegates to the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver — the harshest penalty at its disposal. …Donna Brazile, a member of the rules committee who argued for a swift and harsh punishment for Florida, said states’ desire to be more relevant in the nominating process does not excuse violations of rules intended to make the system fair for everyone.

If we lived in Florida, and this individual (we won’t use the B word out of deference to our dog, a wonderful and intelligent friend and companion) argued to “punish” us for scheduling our primary so it would actually count in the nominating process, we would punish her by voting for the other party’s candidate. Perhaps Donna Brazile thinks she is some kind of absolute monarch, and that she can do whatever she feels like doing to the peasantry. Florida and Michigan voters need to teach this two-bit dictator-wannabee that we do not have peasants or serfs in the United States, and that it is heap bad medicine, heap bad juju, to alienate states with as many electoral votes as Michigan and Florida.

Now let us remember a remark by Donna Brazile that underscores her personal character or lack thereof:

Gore campaign chief Donna Brazile suddenly appeared today on the networks’ morning shows, but faced mostly soft questioning. No one was rude enough to mention that she hasn’t been interviewed on network TV in seven months, since she implied in January that Gen. Colin Powell was a token: “Republicans bring out Powell because they have no program, no policy. They would rather take pictures with black children than feed them.”

Right: Donna Brazile, who is herself at least part African-American, denounces a successful African-American who worked his way from a very modest background to one of the nation’s highest levels of responsibility, as a token. Again, she and the DNC need to be taught a very harsh lesson this November, by having Florida’s and Michigan’s electoral votes go against the nominee in whose selection those states’ voters were not given a voice.
