On the one hand, it’s not nice to delete somebody’s Twitter account. On the other hand, it was Trump’s account, it was a pissed off Twitter employee, who was quitting anyway, who deleted it, and I’m sure he’s got it back by now, so it is kind of funny.
It’s not like election rigging or anything.
A lot of people on my Facebook page, on the Bernie Boards, are saying that we should forget about Hillary and just move on. They are already accusing us of losing the next election for them, and refusing to actually acknowledge the situation. Concern trolls, I guess you’d call them. They act like we’re on the same side, and couch their ridiculous suggestions in sensible sounding language, but they are trolls nonetheless.
So, no. We’re going to keep after Hillary as long as there are people like that who keep saying we should forget about her. Politics is not football. The victory does not go to whoever gets the most points in a given time period. The victory goes to whoever stays on the field the longest.
Liz Warren has admitted that there was rigging, too. In her answer to that question a few months back, she waffled so much I’m amazed she didn’t choke. I guess Donna Brazile’s book made a difference there.
It’s all a political calculation. How long can I back the wrong side before turning around and doing – or at least saying – the right thing, and expect voters to forget about it by the next election. Pretty long, in the case of the average voter. That’s changing, though, with social media, and I think she may have left that meatloaf in the over just a bit too long.
