It will be Donna Brazile's fault if the Dems lose the Virginia governor's election. Or the Russians' fault. It will not be the fault of a discredited third way liberalism that is failing catastrophically - electorally speaking - all over the word, from Greece to Germany to Latin America. Nope. Nosireee. It will be Donna's fault.
I have a powerful bias here. I can't stand Brazile. I don't dislike her as much as I do Wasserman Shultz, but it's close.
A pox on both, regardless of election outcomes.
I don't know her - or about her - to have any definite opinion. I always thought she was one of the Clinton-people since she leaked the debate questions to the Clinton camp during the Democratic primaries. I don't buy her late conversion to Camp Bernie. She strikes me as a rather callous operative who knows where it's best to lie to get some butter on her.
I think Brazile is about Brazile, first and foremost.
But it seems pretty clear that--per the tale she's telling--the DNC made a questionable deal with the Clinton campaign, allowing the latter to pretty much control everything before the primaries had really begun. And it also seems clear--per the piece from Greenwald--that people in the media are "reporting" bs in an effort to discredit Brazile/protect Clinton.
True enough, the election is over; Sanders and Clinton are not coming back, so there is some amount of "so what" in all of this. Yet, I'd think the Dems, themesleves (elected officials and party faithful) would be interested in seeing just had fucked up the DNC was and possibly still is.
