DNC chair should have been decided by 12/1 by the way and I am not here for another second of discussion about it. Pick, get to work.

I am through with the discussion over the next DNC Chair. While the Democratic Party should be getting ready to win a hopefully wave election in the House in 2018, different factions of the party are relitigating the primary. SO you have this endless back and forth between Keith Ellison and Tom Perez, both excellent candidates and great progressives, which is really just an excuse for angry partisans to hate on each other. This is beyond worthless. We deserve to not control government if we can’t have enough party discipline to just elect someone to what is an overrated position that did not cost Bernie the primary but which should have someone competent in it for once.
Here’s the thing: If you think Hillary Clinton is a horrible person who is the enemy of the Democratic Party, you are the problem. If you think Bernie Sanders is a horrible person who is the enemy of the Democratic Party, you are also the problem. Quit being part of the problem and get to work doing something useful.
….407 comments in and I realize that while I hoped this post would help people rethink their vitriol, it’s actually just given both some Sanders commenters and some Clinton commenters another excuse to be assholes. Again, you are part of the problem. Why not do something useful instead of fight this war?
