      No, the translation is "I completely missed that news item when it happened, I'll pretend I didn't, and now demand that someone walk me through the whole thing."

      The DNC got caught playing favorites. If you can't piece it together then you have a problem.

        What I asked you is how? What did the DNC actually do. And what were they convicted of doing? Being biased, favoring one candidate over another is not rigging the election.

          If he runs as an independent, a Republican will win the White House.
          Will they? Prior to this, I've actually seen more interest in voting for him him from Trump voters than Biden voters.

            I've seen sympathy for him, as he too is a victim of the status quo (IMO).

            But aside from his geopolitical anti-war stance, he's going to be too far left for most Trump voters, I suspect.

              The claim is that superdelegates rig the primary election, even though the superdelegates could have voted for Sanders if they thought he was the better candidate.

                Assuming 'the machine' doesn't have him stopped.
                I don't want RFK Jr to run as an independent, because that would ensure that Trump wins the election.

                I don't expect RFK Jr to run as an independent, because he should know that that would ensure that Trump wins the election.

                But threatening to do so is probably a good way to get concessions from the Democrats.

                  And conspiring to damage his campaign? "One email exchange suggested bringing up Sanders’ religious beliefs as a way to hurt his campaign in parts of the country." Democrats should be thanking Assange for revealing what could have severely damaged the party had it gone too far.

                    If I was a conspiracist, I'd expect there have been exchanges between the DNC and some friendly news organizations to not give RFK Jr. any daylight.

                      I don't know about that, he's a conspiracy nut, and just a nut in general, who seems to be more appealing to Republicans. I expect his canadicy as an independent would at best be a wash.

                        Sounds like to me that you are a conspiracy theorist.

                          It's not like I would base that suspicion on anything.

                            Ah ha, I knew it. Conspiracy theorist.

                              There is also a theory that you are an AI program, planted here by Leftists that are too tired and busy to deal with TWeb. That one is pretty convincing.

                                I think his only appeal to Republicans is as someone they can beat in the general election, or as a third party candidate to take votes away from Biden.
