Quote of the Day

"I mean, it's just ludicrous on the face of it. You know, I have been campaigning for Democrats, fundraising for Democrats, recruiting Democrats to run and win for a really long time. I think about 40 years. Senator Sanders, by his own admission, has never even been a Democrat. I understand they are getting anxious. I get that. But they need to be thoughtful about what they do say because at the end of the day we need a Democratic president."—Hillary Clinton, pushing back hard and effectively on Jeff Weaver's bullshit about how her ambition to be president risks destroying the Democratic Party.

Right the fuck on.

I've got more on this at Blue Nation Review: "Hillary has been a Democratic Party rockstar for four decades—a fact that is consistently used against her by the Sanders campaign, as they rail against her as 'the establishment candidate.' Now, Weaver wants to simultaneously accuse her of being a tool of the establishment and the harbinger of its apocalypse. Weaver's failing isn't even logically consistent, never mind that it is patently obnoxious."
