I was up in Boston until about 1:00 pm on Sunday and then pretty much on the road until 10:30 pm, only to get up for a crazy-busy work day. So I missed all the WikiLeaks drama until tonight.
For any of you who still haven’t heard the news, the notorious activist hacker WikiLeaks got its hands on some 20,000 Democratic National Committee emails… a bunch of which made it crystal clear that the primary was rigged against Bernie Sanders and for Hillary Clinton.
Of course, anyone who thought about it for more than a second had to figure that was the case. But now we don’t have to make very well-educated guesses. We have proof (as if we needed any more) that Clinton is a manipulative egomaniac with no qualms about trampling on other’s rights and that the DNC couldn’t care less about We the People (again, one big fat “No duh”).
As a result, the Democratic National Convention – which just officially began today – is a raving mess, with Bernie Sanders supporters repeatedly booing Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and hissing at any mention of Hillary.
Which, I can’t say I blame them for. I mean, it’s hard for a socialist to wake up and realize the conservatives were right all along about big government being a lying piece of trash.
But now that we’re all nice and updated about the drama, here are my thoughts on the matter:
1. Looks like WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange is a Bernie Sanders supporter and, like most Bernie Sanders supporters, he’s far from pleased that Hillary Clinton stole the Democratic nomination.
2. Something tells me Donald Trump is going to get a big boost from this, either from Democrats so furious with Hillary that they’ll vote for Trump out of spite or vote for a third-party candidate, which is just as good as voting for Trump.
3. I’m sure that getting booed off stage could have happened to a worse person than Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. But hey, Mussolini wasn’t available.
And last but not least…
5. This whole thing is hysterical!!!!
