Hillary “penis-snatcher” Clinton

Read this and tell me the same damn thing isn’t happening to the Democratic Party:
“I’m tempted to say it’s one huge joke,” Oleko said.
“But when you try to tell the victims that their penises are still there, they tell you that it’s become tiny or that they’ve become impotent. To that I tell them, ‘How do you know if you haven’t gone home and tried it’,” he said.
Over at the DNC, Obama needs 100 superdelegates to step forward and the nomination battle is over.
since the primaries will have lifted Obama over 1,900 delegates (elected and super), he’ll only need about 100 more, out of about 300 uncommitted superdelegates.
Yet some otherworldy force convinces them that they are impotent.
It has been some kind of magic to see the Clinton machine build a narrative based on the possibility that out of the 300 remaining potential votes, Obama will somehow fail to reach the 2,025 delegates needed to secure the nomination at the convention.
The only justification for the ongoing Clinton campaign is that such a thing is possible. And at this point, the large-enough number of undecided superdelegates serves to confirm that the option exists.
I can understand how that many politicians could be held at bay from all jumping at once to the conclusion that is painfully obvious once the Clinton hypnotism is removed. Who really wants to be part of the group that ends her campaign?
Especially when the Clintons have shown themselves to be such brutal opponents. They don’t go away when they lose this nomination contest, and the performance anxiety that can arise from that certainty makes a fair amount of sense.
Democratic Party leaders and undecided superdelegates seem to walk on eggshells in the shadow of the Clinton campaign, unable to select a candidate, unable to finally throw the bums out.
And like the polls like to show these days, the “angry and abusive” John McCain leading the Republican Party starts looking better and better when compared to a Democratic Party choosing to play the doormat and victim to a candidate that has already lost the nomination by every count.
Hillary Clinton is like an abusive ex stalking the party that has already thrown her out. Though my ‘understanding’ about why superdelegates remain uncommitted is sarcastic to a great extent, on this point I am serious: if anyone has ever tried to help a friend escape from an abusive relationship, then they may have experienced a similar kind of frustration to what it must feel like to try to help the party escape from the Clintons.
The kind of mindfuck involved in convincing people their penises have disappeared is a lot like the lock abusers get on the minds of their targets, and eerily, much like what the Clintons appear to have done to the Democratic Party.
Perhaps if the Democratic Party can realize that it is better than this, then there’s hope that a safe escape can be made. The party has to first decide that it has had enough. Then, like the training says, they need a safety plan in place for taking the next step.
There isn’t anything easy about responding to the “politics of fear” and it is asking a lot. But it would be appreciated if the uncommitted delegates could take a moment and reflect on the kind of party they want to be a part of, and what it might look like if the Democratic Party agrees that Hillary has lost the nomination.
and then strongly suggests that she use her hypnotic penis-snatching powers to fix the damage she’s done with her negative campaign, of course.
