in a post on The Hill, longtime Democratic hack Donna Brazile touts her new book about the 2016 election.
In her account, Brazile lays out a truly alternative history about how she "discovered" that, yes, indeed, the nomination process was rigged by Hillary Clinton's campaign to thwart any challengers, including Bernie Sanders.
This is so self-serving, yet it confirms to a great extent what the Sandernistas have been saying for a long time.
What I also find cringe-worthy is the way Brazile throws Debbie Wasserman Schultz under the bus -- acting like what Deb did is news to her.
(Wasserman Schultz once was a hero of mine when she served in the Florida Legislaure, and I choked up when I read about her diagnosis of breast cancer. But over the subsequent years she has given new meaning to selling out and cynicism.)
Good thing I wasn't drinking a hot beverage when I read Brazile's claims that she was neutral during the primaries.
And her now-abandonment of Clinton almost makes me feel pity for Clinton.
Like I said -- almost.
(I voted for Bernie in the primary, but voted for Hillary in November.)
A bit of advice: It helps if you adopt the voice of Claude Rains when reading Brazile's account.
