Is the DNC using "seat fillers" at their convention?

Where do they get people in such numbers on short notice?

I wonder if lefties will now start to question further the extent to which the Dems and the media have fixed and rigged and manufactured other presumed known knowns?

I did notice yesterday that tv people started off repeating the talking point that the Dems were unified now and that the Sanders revolution was over. At least on Fox this went on for a while until they started getting footage of the Sanders protests and anarchists outside.

TV news, ALL tv news, is a reality show. It's about as spontaneous as the Kardashians or those nasty housewives.

There's a label, I can't think of it, for when you can see the reporting errors in the media about your own area of expertise but then just accept at face value the media reporting in other areas to be true.

Our media is a crock, indeed Amartel.
We do not have an honest curious press in this country. We have political operatives who act off a script and deliver a produced narrative.

PBS has a new PBS ad that shows a photo of Sarah Palin, then Trump, then Bernie - (no Hillary) then the ad goes on to say something about normalcy.
The undercurrent: "Reject the crazy and embrace normal Hillary."

or in real terms - Embrace corruption because we here at PBS do your thinking for you.

We get it, we get it, we GET it already!

And we know all this. It's demonstrated. It's obvious. It's already discussed thoroughly. Poor thing. He's trying to come to grips with his brand new realization, and it took actually being there for it occur to him how corrupted his filthy little lie of Potemkin village.

We KNOW the meaningful action is all happening outside and not inside with utterly vapid speeches delivering pablum, bromides, blarney, blather, bunkum and bullshit.

But let's talk about his impeccably plucked eyebrows instead, and his stunningly precise grooming and makeup expertly applied. That IS what this video is about anyway, face time with droning tautology, and not about deconstructing the obvious, just hit mute and admire his not-even-real face, speaking of Potemkin villages.

Murray Gell-Mann Amnesia effect: Reporters are straight up retarded in your area of expertise, then turn the newspaper page and trust them on all other subjects. I think. It's an Insty thing.

This was the piece on Gateway the other day. They need 700 actors.

Apparently, the Demos really are Feeling The Bern. Bernie's gone back to being an Indy and the Bernies are Greenies.

Actors' Equity. They want people in good clothes, well-mannered.

Them ain't Democrats.

"Actors' Equity. They want people in good clothes, well-mannered."

Ed, I am pretty sure Actors' Equity is overwhelmingly Democrat...at least that is what they say so they don't get blacklisted.

From the Craigslist ad: "We have a number of empty seats that will need to be filled" (but they didn't stop there-they had to go on and be punitive): "as we are currently removing a number of people" (um, I think those people removed themselves) "and need to refill their seats for the remainder of the conference."

$50/night.
As Spicoli said, when informed that cadavers were from people who sold their bodies to medicine: "righteous bucks."

If you want actors on the East Coast, especially since a great many Philadelphia actors do New York work (and vice versa), you'd go to AE and, yeah, party affiliation is not in doubt.

The union would just issue a cattle call and look for the right types. As of Tuesday, 1865 declared for Bernie and 56 didn't vote, they could have close to 2000 seats to fill tonight if all those people go home.

Or raise Hell outside.

For those interested, a little background on all this, off Fox.

Hey they elected a seat filler President so what's the big deal?

edutcher said...

I love it!

Another piece on how empty the convention hall is.

Can we say at this early juncture Hillary's convention has been a disaster?

BTW Breitbart is saying Trump had had an aggregate 17 point bounce the last 2 weeks, which means he's jumped at least 5 this week.

Pay no attention to the zombies behind that curtain.

The "lefties" have.

It's the party elites and their zombies who are begging for the nice stiff ass-raping that's in store for them once their game is over.
