Hearing Trump's Thanksgiving message to the troops inspired me to (re)write a song.

Tune: Tumbling Tumbleweeds
New Title: Babbling Idiot

"Babbling, babbling, babbling, babbling idiot."

I still need lyrics.

"Brazile Denies Democratic Primary Was Rigged"

"Former Democratic National Committee (DNC) interim chairwoman Donna Brazile said she found 'no evidence' that the 2016 Democratic presidential primary process was fixed, taking issue with the use of the word 'rigged' by others."


"In the excerpt published in Politico [November 2], Brazile said she was tasked with searching for proof that Clinton’s team had fixed the nomination process in her favor.

'By September 7, the day I called Bernie, I had found my proof and it broke my heart,”'Brazile wrote, referring to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who ran an ultimately unsuccessful bid against Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination.

But in the [November 5 "This Week with George Stephanopoulos"] interview, Brazile said she told Sanders she found "no evidence" that the primary was fixed against him."

"Donna Brazile: I considered replacing Clinton with Biden as 2016 Democratic nominee."

From the WaPo story:

"Whenever Brazile got frustrated with Clinton’s aides, she writes, she would remind them that the DNC charter empowered her to initiate the replacement of the nominee. If a nominee became disabled, she explains, the party chair would oversee a complicated process of filling the vacancy that would include a meeting of the full DNC.

After Clinton’s fainting spell, some Democratic insiders were abuzz with talk of replacing her — and Brazile says she was giving it considerable thought.

The morning of Sept. 12, Brazile got a call from Biden’s chief of staff saying the vice president wanted to speak with her. She recalls thinking, “Gee, I wonder what he wanted to talk to me about?” Jeff Weaver, campaign manager for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), called, too, to set up a call with his boss, and former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley sent her an email."
