DNC rule changes will be celebrated by Party Faithful

With results from the Iowa primary still unclear, the DNC has been reported in sufficient alarm over Bernie's surge that something must be done.

A rule change to allow Mr. Bloomfield to enter the debates is one thing.

There is however some controversy, since the very rule that a candidate must raise so much cash before being allowed into the debates has caused former candidates who were excluded to be a little confused.

Further, Mr. Bloomfield has not needed to raise any contributions whatever since he's dedicated two billion of his own riches to the quest.

Whether he can buy the DNC outright is another question.

Mr. Kerry has been overheard saying Bernie “must be stopped,” with the suggestion that he himself might try another run for the presidency.

This “must be stopped” sentiment apparently sees other candidates as inadequate to hold back the rising tide of popularity on which Mr. Sanders is riding.

Ms. Clinton, also, is at this time further humming and hawing (and feeling "an urge") for a possible entry to the race, as late as the nominating convention this summer.

Further, the DNC is considering additional changes in the rules back to what pertained in 2016.

This would allow super delegates into the first nominating ballot, not just further in to the process in case of an unclear leader getting the nomination.

Twitter and various social media are expressing serious alarm over these developments and at the by now transparent enmity of the Democrats for one of its own candidates for the nomination.


Bernie may be on the side of millions cheering him on in what Mr. Sanders calls a class struggle, “But this is not what the Democratic Party is all about,” stated Mr. Obama recently.

“The banking industry and titans of the corporations, such as Amazon's Mr. Bezos, certainly do not want to see any kind of regression toward their paying more taxes,” he further explained.

“In such a situation I suggest a compromise. First, yes, do put me on the Supreme Court, and the best way for that to happen is to get Hillary back into the race.”

Ms. Clinton is reported to have wept at this development while summoning her resolve to step back into command of the DNC this summer.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
