The Evening Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)
Only septuagenarian white male geezers need apply. – Today the DNC announced new qualification rules for its next debate. Conveniently for the Party’s establishment, the new rule – there’s only one now – works to exclude Tulsi Gabbard from the stage.
From The Hill’s report:
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) on Friday announced new qualifying standards for the upcoming Arizona debate that will leave only the top two contenders on stage.
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) did not meet the single qualifying factor: earning at least 20 percent of the delegates awarded as of March 15.
Gabbard has two of the 1,385 delegates awarded. Those delegates are from American Samoa, which former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg won on Super Tuesday before dropping out and endorsing Biden.
Six states are set to vote on Tuesday, including Michigan, the biggest electoral prize of the night. It is highly unlikely Gabbard will meet the 20 percent delegate threshold after Tuesday’s elections.
Thus, while the corrupt news media and leading Democrats like Nancy Pelosi lament the fact that it appears certain that no woman will win the presidency this year, their Party works to ensure its lone remaining female – and minority – candidate in the race will not even have the opportunity to debate the Geezer Brigade on national television.
That, friends, is today’s Democrat Party in a nutshell.
That is all.
