Democrats Vow to Learn Mistakes of the Past in Order to Keep Repeating Them

Determined to avoid in the 2018 and 2020 elections the mistakes that cost them so dearly in the 2010, 2014, and 2016 elections, the Democratic Party will meet on Saturday to hold their own elections and repeat those mistakes in 2017.

On Saturday, the Democrats pick their new party chairman–with Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) and former Obama Labor Secretary Tom Perez the clear front-runners. Although Ellison has some establishment backing, he is also the favorite of Sanders supporters, while Perez has the backing of many in the Obama and Clinton camps.

Observers watching Saturday’s election say it’s currently a toss-up whether Democratic leadership will repeat the mistake of going with an establishment candidate likely to repeat the party leadership’s mistakes of the past, or whether the loser’s supporters will repeat the mistake of disengaging rather than using their energy and resources to move the party and its leadership toward them because why even bother, dude, the party is obviously corrupt and will remain corrupt for all of eternity no matter what external events happen because people never succeed at changing anything, man!
