The Donna Brazile Problem

When Donna Brazile was caught leaking a debate question in the Democratic Primary she was forced to resign her analyst position at CNN. At that point the Democratic Party should have been officially done with her. Instead, she was not only invited back into the Party she was made interim Chairperson of the DNC! Why would we, as Democrats, reward someone caught making such a publicly ethical breach of trust? I honestly don't know the answer.

Today we're facing a situation where this woman is doing a tell-all about the inter-workings of the Party during the 2016 election. It's extremely embarrassing and I don't think it will end with her book. As Chairperson she undoubtedly had many conversations and was privy to confidential information which she can now leak to the public at large over the upcoming months. Why she is doing it, I don't know. Perhaps she's angry and wants some kind of revenge or maybe she sees it as a way of making money.

Perhaps we will learn from this experience. Elevating someone to a high position of power who we know to be ethically challenged is not only foolhardy, it's the wrong thing to do.

One of Port Arthur's finest.

Trump is Done

Watching CNN tonight for the first time in several months ( i rarely watch TV news shows) i was struck by how much more aggressive they are in going after Trump. James Clapper basically said Trump is a threat to the country, and stated his concern about Trump's access to the nuclear code. They have taken the gloves off, it reminds me of when Nixon was close to the end. I may be wrong but something is definitely up.
