The Un-Democratic Party

Top Democrats will meet Saturday to screw over voters in Florida and Michigan:
The Democratic National Committee is bracing itself for protests outside its Rules and Bylaws Committee meeting on Saturday in Washington, where the fates of the Florida and Michigan primaries could finally be decided.
Supporters of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton are organizing to march and then gather on the street outside the panel’s meeting, scheduled for Saturday morning at a hotel in Northwest Washington. . . .
The Rules and Bylaws Committee is expected to address the primary votes from Michigan and Florida, which moved up their primaries in violation of national party rules. The Clinton campaign has pinned its hopes on the Michigan and Florida votes being added to the totals, giving her a much-needed boost in the final days of the primary campaign.
If voters in Florida and Michigan are screwed over because of the party bosses' rules, the Democrats will have abandoned whatever right they might ever have had to complain about about "disenfranchisement."
