The present internet consensus seems to be that Donna Brazile is lying out of her ass to sell books. This is plausible. I can’t imagine who on Earth would have any interest in reading a book by a party functionary with a long, undistinguished record, so it stands to reason that she’d have to work really, really hard to drum up that interest.

Then somebody pointed out this tweet from…um…a week and a half ago:

I don’t even get this meme and I don’t care. It is striking just how fawning, even unctuous, the praise is, coming from somebody who knows that they’re just about to start dumping all over the person being praised. I guess I just don’t get the “smile as you stab them in the back with a knife” thing. Sometimes I’ve said something bad about someone else behind their back and even if it’s true I still feel a little bad/embarrassed when I see that person next. I’m just not that good at compartmentalizing things I guess.

    The one thing they all have in common is greed. It makes it pretty easy to overlook the occasional stab in the back. It’s how the game is played.
