Oh Bernie! Looks like you’re gonna get hosed again.
According to DNC boss Tom Perez, the Dems will forsake the “kids table” format that the Republicans used in 2015-2016 to go with a lottery that will determine which night that the contestants will be featured and who they will be going up against.
Faced with more clowns than could be crammed onto the stage in Miami on any given night, the former Obama regime official announced plans to use the lottery format to set the lineup – a move that will be viewed with extreme suspicion by Bernie Sanders supporters who already understand what it’s like to be screwed by the party elite like they were when the DNC put the thumb on the scale for Hillary Clinton.
In an interview with The Hill, Perez boasted about the genius of his idea.

Via The Hill, “DNC boss says candidates to be involved in debate lottery”:
Democratic candidates for president or their representatives will be involved when the Democratic National Committee (DNC) does a lottery to determine who stands on stage during the party’s initial two-day debate, DNC Chairman Tom Perez told The Hill in an exclusive interview.
Perez said the DNC hadn’t determined the “precise methodology” for the random draw yet, but he said the process would be transparent and the candidates or their representatives would be involved.
“We’ll certainly make sure we do it in a way that is transparent for all of the candidates involved because obviously we want them to see for themselves that we meant what we said,” Perez said, seated on a brown leather couch in his DNC office overlooking South Capitol Street.
Perez, who previously served as a civil rights lawyer in former President Obama’s Justice Department, is tasked with managing a process that involves two dozen Democratic presidential candidates, the most by far in recent history.
It appears increasingly likely that 20 of the candidates will make the stage for the June 26 and June 27 debates in Miami — 10 on each night.
It’s really hard to see how the format isn’t an early move to stack the deck in favor of former Vice PresidentJoe Biden who since jumping into the race last month, has sprinted to the top of polls showing that despite all the sound and fury from the socialist base, that white privilege is alive and well in the Democratic Party.
With Biden already clubbing Sanders like a baby seal, it is clear that the DNC and the Clinton-Obama faction still maintain an iron-fisted grasp on control of the nominating process.
Look for devoted Sandernistas to scream bloody murder if Sleepy Joe draws a matchup against schmucks like Beto, Eric Swalwell, John Hickenlooper, Wayne Messam, Tim Ryan, Seth Moulton, John Delaney, and Marianne Williamson while Bernie’s opponents will be comprised of ambitious political psychos who will be out for blood.
Given the DNC’s track record, Biden will be in Romper Room while Sanders goes to Thunderdome.
Bend over Bernie, here it comes again.
