Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

For starters, putting Marianne Williamson on stage is hurting the party's chances to unseat Trump. Here's how to scrap the rules and start over: "Girlfriend, you are so on." Thus spoke Marianne Williamson, spiritual adviser to the stars, responding to a question at a Democratic presidential debate in which she was, inexplicably, taking part, and she further said her first act as president of the United States would be, naturally, to call New Zealand's prime minister.

You would think that Williamson's performance would mean that she would be so off the stage for the second round of 2020 debates, and it's not too late to change the rules -- immediately. Beating Trump is the political cause of our lifetimes and we simply cannot afford a process that advantages the activist left over the mainstream, the wealthy over the middle class, and the television famous over viable leaders.

To rectify this, the DNC should scrap its rules for selecting debate participants and start over.

I couldn't agree with this more, FTA:

"The inclusion of Williamson and other fringe candidates at the MSNBC debates -- and the exclusion of quality, substantive contenders like Montana Gov. Steve Bullock -- was the absurd if unintended consequence of the plan for limiting debate participants developed by Tom Perez, chair of the DNC. Perez is a brilliant and dedicated party leader. But he made a mistake with this debate plan, and it could affect our party's ability to beat Donald Trump in 2020."

If we don't get our collective heads out of our asses, they will be handed to us by Trump in 2020, which we cannot let happen.

Hahahaha. What a bunch of losers. Their problem isn't Williamson, or the debate format. Their candidates suck, from top to bottom. No one forced these clowns to support open borders and free healthcare for illegal immigrants; they did that on their own. The Left has taken over their party and they are stuck with it.

I'm telling you, Nulli, Warren could make a serious run. She actually has thought about things, and has developed plans and strategies. Yes, they're disturbing and unworkable, but ask Kamala to talk about something besides race, and she's out of the conversation. Yet that woman put more brothers behind bars than crack did in DC.

Definitely offensive! What an a*****e!

Maddow is so much smarter than you will ever be that you are so jealous of her deserved success. You will never rise to the level of her success.

Glad to see you considering her but saying her plans are disturbing and unworkable.....tell that to FDR. Her plans are very workable but, of course, taxes on the rich would rise considerably. Oh well. That's how things actually get done.

I 100% agree. All fringe candidates need to be left out of the debates. Allow only the top 5 in the debates, the rest should perhaps run for State Legislature or something first.
