DNC to Bernie: So Sorry (Not)

Damage control with a very unapologetic "apology."

As the results of the hacked DNC servers finally came to bear last week with WikiLeaks’ release of DNC emails, Democrat leaders found themselves scrambling to control the damage. So far it has resulted in the resignation of Debbie Wasserman Schultz and now this lame apology to Bernie Sanders (with our annotations):

“On behalf of everyone at the DNC, we want to offer a deep and sincere apology to Senator Sanders, his supporters, and the entire Democratic party for inexcusable remarks made over email. These comments do not reflect the values of the DNC or our steadfast commitment to neutrality during the nominating process. (Editor’s note: Apparently they DO reflect DNC values and non-neutrality.) The DNC does not — and will not — tolerate disrespectful language exhibited toward our candidates. (Editor’s note: Apparently they they will — only Wasserman Schultz has resigned.) Individual staffers have also rightfully apologized for their comments, and the DNC is taking appropriate actions to ensure it never happens again. (Editor’s note: Again, only Wasserman Schultz has resigned.)

What is strikingly absent from this "apology” is any substantive mention of the central issue. Are Sanders supporters up in arms over “disrespectful language,” or over the rigged system? The fact is the WikiLeaks emails exposed that the Democrat nomination process had been rigged for Hillary from the beginning, confirming the worst suspicions of Sanders voters. How ironic that the party that calls itself “Democratic” is so un-democratic when it comes to choosing a presidential nominee. After all of Clinton’s email subterfuge, you would think the DNC staff would be more cautious. Stay tuned for the release of more emails…
