Contributor Post Created with Sketch. I Hate to Kick the Iowa Dems When They’re Down…

 

Oh who am I kidding? I love doing this!

It’s good to know that all the money they could have spent making sure their app for tallying caucus votes was actually useful and functional was spent on outfitting themselves with a palatial, expansive, state-of-the-art state party headquarters.

I mean, you would think that with all the eyes of the American political world turned upon them every four years, they would present themselves as the most modern, the most efficient, the most capable political party in existence, and not just shoehorn themselves into an old Bob’s Big Boy, or something.

Oh wait.

IOWA Dem HQ

Sucks to be you, Democrats.

    So basically, I guess you are stating that you would prefer that the people who set up Hillary’s private server might have remained unemployed!

    This is almost as wonderful as the Obamacare website launch. I’ve been browsing the headlines with an idiotic grin on my face for an hour. Your post was a perfect little cherry on top.

    Let’s see now, the smartest people on the planet decide to upgrade their voting methods and they forget to test it sufficiently to determine whether it works before cancelling phone lines that could have been used as a backup system. OK, now…..
    Also, don’t these people all have cell phones? Why are we being told the precinct folks couldn’t get through? Are they not really as smart and competent as we’ve been told they are? Beats me, I’m just a dumb hick so what do I know?

    It is almost incomprehensible to me how they could be this inept. Of course they are blaming Iowa ! Maybe Google was too busy suppressing the corona virus news from China to help.

    How did Hillary Clinton become the Democratic Party’s IT person?

    Next thing you know, a major University will appoint James Comey as a Professor of Eth … Wait! What?

    LOL, I don’t mind kicking them when they’re down (or up for that matter) either.

    By the way, I don’t know if people caught the Wall Street Journal editorial on this. Here’s the key argument:

    Here the party that waxes sanctimonious about election security couldn’t secure its own election from itself. Here the party that has spent three years questioning the legitimacy of the 2016 election will see the legitimacy of its own custom-designed process questioned. Here the party that promises technocratic management of American health care, energy and finance proved less able to tally votes even than the ancient Athenians.
