Rahm Emanuel Tells Democrats To Stop Crying, Bend Over For “Long Haul” – Then Offers Subversive Advice On Dirty Politics
Apparently Stanford University is putting on a week of elite liberal inspirationalists to help the tender psyches of turtleneck wearing “compliant and unawares” recover from the depths of despair. I imagine that miserable couple on the plane to Portland were in attendance – both wearing jeans and faux-buckle loafers with no socks. In a sermon to the fractured cult of Jobs on Monday, Justice Ginsburg put down her antique ivory ear-trumpet to let the world know she wants to eradicate the electoral college, and people need to be more charitable. Credible sources within earshot say many tears of inspiration were shed.
In stark contrast to Ginsburg’s feel-good appearance, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel took a big check to show up on the Palo Alto campus – where he effectively called tantruming democrats whiny children, telling them to put on their big boy/girl/it pants and move on.
Our party likes to be right, even if we lose. If you win, you then have the power to go do what you need to get done. If you lose, you can write a book about what happened. Great. That’s really exciting [Sarcastic Rahm eye roll].
He then went all Harkonen apprentice, talking about plans within plans and biding time:
You also gotta know, you can’t beat something with nothin’ – that was Bill Clinton’s always lesson. You have to have an alternative. You have to give people your vision. And I would also be honest, it took us a long time to get this low – it ain’t gonna happen in 2018. Take a chill pill, man. You gotta be in this for the long haul. If you think it’s gonna be a quick turnaround, like that – it’s not.
Of course while waiting to regain power, the most effective thing congressional Democrats can do for the country is stop infighting – and then divide, divide, divide! Here’s Rahm’s advice:
- “Democrats don’t have the power to swing at everything, so we have to pick what is essential.”
- B – Wedge: “wherever there is a disagreement among Republicans, I’m for one of those disagreements. President wants Russia, I’m for John McCain and Lindsey Graham, I’m for NATO. Why? Wedge. Schisms have to be wedges, wedges have to be divides.”
- Third: “We gotta lower the President, why? Because they are strong enough to get him in [against?] us. We’re not strong enough.”
How about “don’t cheat during the primaries with a candidate whose fake charity took tens of Millions of dollars from our enemies?”
