Truest statement of the week

It didn’t take long for white liberals to attack Donna Brazile.
From its portals in media and politics, the vindictive left is in battle mode now that Brazile -- a longtime Democratic strategist -- has spilled the beans about how broken our political system really is.
Having served as interim chair of the Democratic National Committee during the final innings of the 2016 election, Brazile ought to know. In her explosive new book, “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House,” she reveals a secret agreement that turned the DNC into a subsidiary of Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Clinton handed over $20 million to help get the DNC out of debt. In return, she got control of the inner workings of the organization. This included decisions about scheduling debates, who should fill key posts and how messages should be shaped.
Clinton’s challengers -- Bernie Sanders, Jim Webb, Martin O’Malley, Lincoln Chafee -- never had a chance. The fix was in.
