Have you heard? The Democratic National Committee Services Corporation (DNC Services Corporation or, Corporation) is “considering” revising its Presidential nominating rules. http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2009/12/05/democrats-consider-new-presidential-nominating-process/
House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-South Carolina, said that the 2008 nomination contest “yielded a great candidate,” but readily acknowledged the problems that arose.
“We need to improve a little bit in spite of the fact that we got a great candidate out of the process,” Clyburn said Saturday at a meeting of a DNC working group tasked with drafting a new plan. “It was not very comfortable at various points along the way.” (Emphasis added by jbjd.)
However, the CNN article explicitly mentions the change being discussed is limited to these topics. 1) The Corporation is looking to revise the calendar of primaries/caucuses so that in the future it will not ‘have to’ penalize any state for leaving the starting gate too soon; and 2) they want to limit the authority of the unpledged delegates – read, superdelegates – to effect the final outcome. (Yes, I meant to write “effect,” as in, make the result what it is.)
Notice, there is no mention of adding a caution to pledged delegates from vote binding states that they must vote according to their state laws and not the Corporation’s requirement to exercise their “good conscience.” (In other words, they must vote for the candidate they were elected by the voters in their home states, to represent, and not the favored candidate of the Corporate bosses.) And no mention of implementing safeguards to ensure the Corporation sticks to the rule requiring the nominee for POTUS “must be qualified under the U.S. Constitution.” http://s3.amazonaws.com/apache.3cdn.net/3e5b3bfa1c1718d07f_6rm6bhyc4.pdf (p.14, K.1 and 2).
Both the movie “Jaws” and the television show “Saturday Night Live” debuted in 1975. The hysteria – which Merriem-Webster defines as “behavior exhibiting overwhelming or unmanageable fear or emotional excess” – produced by the movie resulted in a hysterical – as in, excessively funny – skit on SNL, called “Land Shark.”
“Blues Brothers” Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi teamed up as Roy Scheider (playing the Sheriff) and Richard Dreyfuss (the shark expert).
The premise of the skit is simple. The Land Shark, determined to eat its prey, manages to trick unsuspecting apartment dwellers into opening up their doors to him by offering up a series of incredible rouses until he finds the fiction that works.
Think of the DNC Services Corporation as land sharks. For your own safety, ignore them. Always keep in mind, everything coming out of the National is smoke and mirrors. Why on earth would anyone credit the word or good intentions of the same people who perpetrated election fraud to get state election officials to print the name of BO on state ballots notwithstanding the Corporation refuses to respond to requests from hundreds or thousands of voters to disclose on what documentary evidence they based their Certification, he is Constitutionally qualified for the job? (See, for example, “OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF BABES” below on this blog.)
Better yet, appreciate the joke that is the DNC; and laugh.
