Shenanigans started with the Shadow app co, Developed by Buttigieg's top advisor's wife, Tara McGowan and having the app vetted 'Defending Digital Democracy' a security company/consultancy owned by Robby Mook, former Clinton campaign Director from 2016.

But yeah.... those rude 4chan trolls....

Does anyone know Iowa decided to scrap a perfectly fine tally system with a phone app?

Taibbi on the scene in Iowa. A good read

"No matter what result emerges, it’s likely many individual voters will not trust it. Between comical videos of apparently gamed coin-flips and the pooh-poohing reaction of party officials and pundits (a common theme was that “toxic conspiracy theories” about Iowa were the work of the Trumpian right and/or Russian bots), the overall impression was a clown show performance by a political establishment too bored to worry about the appearance of impartiality.

“Is it incompetence or corruption? That’s the big question,” asked Storey. “I’m not sure it matters. It could be both.”

The only good thing about it is that a significant number of posters want encouragement to kill themselves.


The problem is, it's a lot like a boil or any other "encapsulating" infectious pustule or abscess, at first it's painful and annoying but left untreated, it can spread or even morph into something much more dangerous. Some are MRSA, which of course can sometimes turn into necrotizing fasciitis, the so called "flesh eating bacteria".

Sites and forums like 4chan display the same vectors as these diseases, in that ignoring them can be quite dangerous to the larger host body if untreated.

Not advocating any big brother tactics, just warning that this stuff isn't much different than all the basements of America where morose and disaffected juniors of questionable mental status have always congregated in the past...only now they're all networked together, and so it seems, is their sense of purpose.

They're no longer "encapsulated"...they now have their own unique "lymphatic system" with which to spread their virii.

“It’s June 26, the first night of the Democratic debates. But at a watch party at the Brixton bar, in Washington’s trendy U Street neighborhood, none of the Democrats are paying attention to the drama on the screen. Instead, they are circled around Tara McGowan, a weapon of a woman whose innovative tactics make her critically important to the Democratic Party … and the biggest threat to the orthodoxy that has made so many left-leaning digital gurus rich in the post-Obama era.”

Neoliberals.....

Clearly forty years of Republican conditioning has worked on the DNC establishment. I imagine they can hear Ronald Reagan in their heads instead of FDR.

Like I said, they're still "hanging their heads in shame" because someone dared to suggest the party should be more to the Left than the GOP.

I am rather fed up with hearing all the fearmongering by "moderates".

Hey, remember what happened to the public option?

Joe Lieberman, a MODERATE, told Obama he would vote to
KILL OFF the entire bill if there was a public option.

That's an article by Wendell Potter, who used to be a top CIGNA executive.

There's your so called "MODERATES".
They suck the life out of every goddamn thing that might help working families in America so that their CON buddies don't hate them.
Moderates....#&*(@@$!! another word for "spine made of wet ramen noodles".
Susan Collins is a "moderate" Republican.
Hard to tell the difference between a Susan Collins and a Joe Lieberman, or a Zell Miller.

So called "moderates"....their other trick was "running away from Obama".

Why? Because Obama was a socialist, too??

Do me a favor, moderates, go join the GOP.
With friends like you, who needs enemies?
It's time we took stock of what moderates have been costing the Democratic Party the last forty years.
