About that DNC Chair Job...

Jack Kemp

Ellison will be the Number Two guy. Let's see how well he plays with Perez. One good thing about that is that if he's toiling away at the DNC, he won't be screwing up Minnesota politics.

Ellison may want Muslim prayer rooms at DNC headquarters. Perez might want coed bathrooms. This could soon become be a culture clash.

There's an applicable old Yiddish joke about two communist party officials who met at a conference in Prague.

After a while, one guy turns to the other and says, "Well, comrade, I totally agree with you about the new five year plan and I also agree with you on your method building worker solidarity for the revolution. There's only one thing we don't agree on."

"What's that, comrade?"

"Your agricultural policy. You wish me to be in the ground - and I wish you to be in the ground!" (A common Yiddish phrase for - you guessed it - wishing someone dead. In this case, it is a bitter ego fight about political power.)
