Clinton Supporters Want To Lose Again For Catharsis
Marc Ambinder dutifully reports that the ordinary kabuki theater of the Democratic convention will now include an extra layer of double-secret kabuki theater so Clinton supporters will feel better about themselves.
Jeff Jarvis is right: journalists and their employers must end the farce now. The conventions now only exist to feed the fantasies of political reporters who dream of a “brokered convention” that just simply won’t exist in today’s political environment. If only the four major networks jointly refused to cover the conventions at all, they’d effectively be gone and out of our collective misery, saving national, state, and local taxpayers millions of dollars in the process.
