Liberals once again out-thinking everyone! Love it! Good job, guys!

We're a smart bunch. A real master of political persuasion. Really, I'm surprised Democrats haven't won more elections with our great brain trusts!

The week huge indictments go down, a Trump campaign official pleads guilty and Mueller ramps up his investigation, what does one prominent Democrat do? She writes an article rekindling the primary wars and diverting a ton of attention back to that, allowing Pres. Trump political cover, for the time being, to deflect from his scandal-ridden presidency. Now the Democrats are on the defensive, again, and it's just so beautifully orchestrated, especially to contrast the current charges facing the Trump campaign, that you can't help think if it's a bit more than just a small coincidence!

Liberals, and Democrats, are a smart bunch with impeccable timing.

And we wonder WHY Trump won in 2016.

We'll never be able to take a step forward if we keep shooting ourselves in the foot.

1. Both she and Warren handed Trump and the Republicans a gift. This is beyond stupid IMO.

18. Stupid or opportunistic? Brazile is now officially a Sanders

supporter, and notably Sanders is not a Democrat. He's someone who imagines he can take over the Democratic Party if it breaks enough. I don't think the word stupid is appropriate for what she's done, and I doubt she's operating alone.

Given that the Democratic Party is the nation's only functional political organization and the nation's bulwark against growing fascism and nationalism on the right, how about the word evil, instead?

This attack, and that is what it is, might help lose Democrats the governor's office in Virginia. November 7. Then there's the little matter of the Russia investigation: Sanders benefits if the GOP wins. The tax bill: Sanders benefits if that passes.

Just note the timing of all this. Who does it enable and who does it hurt?

4. Ask yourself, does this help trump? If it does, don't do it.

Notice how the organized Dems have been silent while the ship of trump sinks.

Let's all stfu and stop giving trump something to talk about.

20. Money is power. Hill raised $100 MILLION to save the party.

And agreed to allow Sanders to run as a Democrat and appear on the Democratic ballots. The bitch.

9. For the umpteenth time: The Democratic Party Circular Firing Squad.

What's it going to take for us to put the self-destructive behavior behind us? Armed fighting in the streets against the sort of all-out fascist regime that trump and his followers clearly long for?

I am so fucking sick of this ruinous behavior which accomplishes nothing, other than further empowering the evil madman in the White House. To hell with you, Donna Brazile, and all your supporters.

10. It's too easy to get Democrats to fight amongst ourselves

Not everything is a conspiracy. It is possible for Dems to release books and for a Russian investigation to happen separately.

What I don't understand is how our internal party candidate selection process could possibly take attention off of assholes colluding with a foreign government against the united states. It shouldn't even be close. The Russian stuff is clearly worse to any sensible person.

16. All part of their divide and conquer plan.

Over the part 40 years, they have created not only divisions among friends, neighbors and families, but also inside our political parties.

Round one victory for GOP via Heritage, Limbaugh and Faux.

24 hour news cycle will clean this out if we just shut our mouths and let it go.

13. Democrats suck at campaigning

and are good at governing. Republicans suck at governing and are expert at campaigning.

15. Democrats suck at cutting their fellow Democrats a little slack.

Why can't we be a party of both Hillary and Bernie? We are actually very, very close in ideals, values, and goals. The difference of opinion is in how to achieve them. We can legitimately disagree about that, but we shouldn't stab each other in the back over it. In the end, defeating the Repubs is far more important.
