Double Dose Of Douchery

Someone is dying to type "both sides do it" but can't here where both sides are directly compared & one doesn't look so hot.

Points must nonetheless be scored, especially if Lloyd Green's looking to make more of that sweeeeeet oppo research money as he did for George H.W. Bush in 1988. So he throws in a throw-away paragraph about how awful certain Democrats are. A throw-away paragraph he likes so much he throws it in twice.

This is the first, probably not-where-intended appearance. The parenthetical paragraph seems to go w/ it.
Regardless, the symbiosis between the Democratic Party and Silicon Valley is, on a real level, disquieting. It reinforces the censoriousness, intrusiveness and paternalism present among Obama and his allies. Eric Holder’s war on the press, the NSA’s data grab, and the IRS’s attack on the right are not aberrations in this era of Total Information Awareness, as the Obamans have made clear.
Heart not really in it, Green can only repeat his rote recitation of un-scandals (Is Benghazi already so over it's not worth mention in either version of the paragraph? Good.) for counterpoint, while losing "intrusiveness" & "Total Information Awareness." (Or did he want to add them for a stronger dose of verbal medicine?)
Where it belongs. And the parenthetical paragraph? Who knows?

How sad & desperate are they? So sadly desperate that Lloyd Green thought projection & taking a swing at imaginary Super-Powered Mirror-Universe Obama & his sidekick weren't sad & desperate, & he polished it for a second go-round.

If Green believes
The real problem, though, is not stray and scattered comments. Rather it is that such comments speak to the party's discomfort with modernity.
he should check his own modernity comfort level & stop dog-whistling "Kingfish Obama & that other niggerAlgonquin J. Calhoun-style Att'y Gen. of his are censorious, intrusive & paternalgettin' uppity."

Popularity. Like Junior High. This is mostly because I'm curious. You should all be ashamed.
