Democrats spin­ning wheel of mis­for­tune

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - - VOICES & OPINION -

The Democrats are in dire straits af­ter los­ing ma­jor po­si­tion in the 2016 elec­tion. They haven’t the fog­gi­est idea why they lost, blam­ing it on the Rus­sians and Pres­i­dent Trump brown nos­ing them. They’ve been re­sort­ing to des­per­ate means to sup­port this un­founded the­ory, from reach­ing for straws to throw­ing darts at a board, marked with er­ro­neous ac­cu­sa­tions to ex­pand on their cru­sade. Nei­ther have come to fruition, be­cause they have failed the test to pro­vide sub­stan­tial proof to pur­sue their at­tacks.

The Krem­lin fa­vored nei­ther party can­di­date in the 2016 elec­tion — their pur­pose be­ing to cre­ate chaos and dis­rupt the process, bait­ing the Democrats to do their dirty work. Des­per­ate peo­ple are un­pre­dictable and dan­ger­ous to so­ci­ety, as wit­nessed in the Repub­li­can base­ball prac­tice shoot­ing on June 14.

The Democrats won’t give up and may re­sort to pulling ideas out of a hat, or spin­ning the wheel of for­tune, hop­ing the ar­row will fall on a space they haven’t thought of. For­tu­nately, Max­ine Wa­ters is no Vanna White and Chuck Schumer is not a Pat Sa­jak. The op­tion for their show ain’t gonna be picked up in 2018 or 2020, or any other year, be­cause pos­i­tive ac­tion will al­ways trump op­er­at­ing only on bare emo­tion. George Giftos, Boca Ra­ton
