Lot's of discussion over at Grim's about the three tries at a voice vote at the DNC. It sounded even to me all three times. However, as there were two items voted on at once, we don't know what the breakout would be.
There is much speculation how this will play among the electorate, that the Democrats "voted against God." Which they sorta did, but not really. There are lots of possible explanations behind both the aye and nay votes, but they didn't get to say those, just the single syllable. However, if it's an unfair question, I certainly didn't ask them to answer it. They did that to themselves.
I am more curious how it will play to loyal Democrats, who watched non-democracy play out in front of them when the chair called it a two-thirds vote and motion carried when it clearly wasn't. Certainly the losers must have had at least a momentary twinge, wondering if they were in some sort of corrupt organisation where their opinion didn't count and their betters made choices for them. But I would hope even the winners would pause and realise that they won unfairly, by cheating. In both cases, I hope for the scales to fall from some eyes: "these people aren't...aren't honest, honey. We have to get out of here."
I wonder who in the national media will press the issue of a clear 50-50 split among the delegates and the dishonest response to that.
Nah. Lost my head there for a moment.
