Anyone else watching the painful shitstorm that the Rules and Bylaws Committee meeting has become? Or rather, it is? I went out much earlier today to view an apartment in Greenpoint, and I had hoped by the time I’d get back, it would be settled. As of my writing this, FL is to be seated at half mast. What’s so sad about all this is that it’s got the feel of a standup comedy act getting heckled to death.
The Hillary faction seated is obvious as they’re all voting against MI at 69/59, and they’re all sitting together. The crowd present of insane Hillary supporters is shitting themselves. The vote just carried, 19 in favor of MI at 69/59, 8 opposed. These people are nutters. Nutterbutter sandwiches. And with the exception of Ickes, who’s saying that Hillary reserves the right to take this to the credentials committee, it seems that nobody has a sense of class.
Every good word said in favor of Barack Obama is greeted with a distinctly female yell from the crowd.
In another moment of dbaggery:
“This is a fair and good result” – Thomas Hynes
“FAIR TO WHO?” – Nutjob in the back.
Someone at the panel, “To those interrupting, you’re doing your candidate a great disservice by shouting.”
Thankfully Bill stated earlier today that Hillary will go with whatever the R&BC comes up with. Hillary goes against this, and it’s another moment, an even more recent moment, where the HRC camp shows even more signs of incompetence.
Maddow just said that the Clinton Camp is against the MI Democratic Party on this. Great, great quote.
