Actually, we call it gaslighting because it is gaslighting. We are not crazy for disagreeing with ridiculous, completely indefensible positions like “Bernie lost fair and square.”

The Impartiality Clause, also known as Article 5, Section 4 of the DNC Charter, reads as follows:

“the Chairperson shall exercise impartiality and evenhandedness as between the Presidential candidates and campaigns. The Chairperson shall be responsible for ensuring that the national officers and staff of the Democratic National Committee maintain impartiality and evenhandedness during the Democratic Party Presidential nominating process.”

There is simply no way that anyone who has read through the conversations in the more egregious DNC leaks, the Podesta emails showing that the DNC and the Clinton camp were colluding as early as 2014 to schedule debates and primaries in a way that favored her, or then-DNC Vice Chairwoman Donna Brazile acting as a mole against the Sanders campaign and passing Clinton questions in advance to prep her for debates with Sanders can truthfully say that this Impartiality Clause was adhered to. It wasn’t. Clinton’s nomination was illicit.

And your belief that HuffPo is “nothing like” WaPo is adorable.

I write about the end of illusions.
