You're the best dang DNC chair that a Republican could hope for, Debbie Wasserman Schultz. I mean that. Don't ever change.

“Unpledged delegates exist, really, to make sure that party leaders and elected officials don’t have to be in a position where they are running against grassroots activists,” Wasserman Shultz said, adding that the Democratic Party “highlights inclusiveness and diversity at our convention” and wants to give activists “every opportunity” to participate, which she says it what the superdelegates are for.

Translation: God forbid that the crazy people in the Democratic base should ever have the chance to take over the process. Which I sympathize with, tell truthful - but in that special, rather detached way.  There may even have been snickering involved, on my part. I am not yet a Buddha.

Via the Blaze. The whole video was fascinating, particularly the part where Debbie Wasserman Schultz had to gamely explain away why the GOP is two-for-two in turnout so far (soon to be three-for-three, but that's unfair: South Carolina has become Republican territory*). Also: they've got this big voter file! Like they did in 2008 and 2012! Trust in the File, ye Democrats! TRUST IN THE FILE!

...Yeah, some of you are remembering similar Republican assurances from the last decade. It's amazing, isn't it? We forget, and then they forget, and then we forget again, and then they do... it's like nobody ever remembers anything from past cycles. It's a puzzler, let me tell you.

*You can tell that from the way that minorities get regularly elected to statewide positions there now.
