Quick Quips: DEATH TO THE SUPER DELGATES … AND IT’S ABOUT TIME!

The Democratic National Committee made some headway in the right direction this past week.  They removed Super Delegates from the equation that selects the party’s Presidential nominee.  It was always a bad idea.  2016 simply showcased the reasons why to the entire world.

Quick Quips - Death to the Super Delegate - Sanders and PerezI’m surprised, yet very pleased, that Tom Perez joined Bernie Sanders in calling for this change.

    1. That policy was put in place to supposedly guard against a Trump type candidate from receiving the party’s nomination. But unfortunately, the only way to really guard against that happening was for us to clearly see the results of electing someone like Trump. Had Republicans had Super Delegates in 2016, and had those delegates prevented Trump from receiving the nomination, we would have had to put up with that asshole and his hoards screaming from the rooftops until the 2020 election. As most really important lessons go, we just had to learn the friggin’ hard way. This is like passing a really yuge, orange kidney stone. It is damned painful … but it will pass.
