There’s a part of me that truly wants to give Democrats a break, to believe that they just can’t really be as bad as they seem. Then, they go and do something that once again shows they are positively diabolical at heart.
The Democrats caught so much flak in the past couple of days from us conservatives over taking out God and support for Israel from the official party platform that the DNC leadership on Wednesday did an emergency face lift.
Breaking their own convention rules, the leadership held a session, led by DNC Chairman and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio “La Raza” Villaraigosa, to reintroduce a phrase about people having a right to reach their “God-given potential” and a declaration that Jerusalem is and will remain Israel’s capital.
The maneuver required a two-thirds vote and had to be voted on three times. There was obviously strong opposition, so Villaraigosa fell back on old Democrat tricks and “deemed” the changes to have been passed (a la the Slaughter Rule in the Obamacare debate), giving rise to a raucous round of jeers, catcalls and boos.
