All day Sunday, and it didn’t matter what cable news channel you watched, the talkers were all excited that they had themselves a “no unity” angle with which to cover the Democratic National Convention this week.
Sadly, that is part of why there is a real possibility that Donald Trump can ruin the world.
One would think Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the DNC, was some kind of household name. Hardly. She is known mostly to people who follow politics closely, which is not most people. Her resignation, though, has been treated like it was the worst day in the history of the Democratic Party. And the whole email nonsense associated with her resignation has been treated like the worst thing to happen to the country since the JFK assassination.
Meanwhile, there is this from Defense One:
Close your eyes and imagine that a hacking group backed by Russian President Vladimir Putin broke into the email system of a major U.S. political party. The group stole thousands of sensitive messages and then published them through an obliging third party in a way that was strategically timed to influence the United States presidential election. Now open your eyes because that’s what just happened.
Why would Putin want to see Trump elected? Come on. You know why. The Russian despot wants an ignorant buffoon in the White House so he can be even more aggressive in Europe. Period.
But most of the television news time the past 24 hours—with lots and lots more to come—has been focused on Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who is obviously the most dangerous person in the world.
