Game of Crones

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is the keynote speaker for Democrats at their Alaska state convention, which runs May 13-15 at the Dena’ina Center in Anchorage.

MoveOn.org types are having none of it, and launched a petition to keep Alaska a Wasserman-Schultz free zone. Just a few dozen have signed the petition, leaving it well under the radar.

Bernie Sanders won the Alaska Democratic Caucus by 81 percent … but Wasserman-Schultz, like her party machine, is “with Hillary.”

So are key Democratic super-delegates like Juneau’s Kim Metcalfe, who was branded nasty by some of her fellow caucus attendees recently due to her epic Alaska hostility.

In Philadelphia, where the Democratic National Convention takes place in July, the city is bracing for a “BernTheConvention” protest that could reach in the hundreds of thousands, as people urge super-delegates to vote with their constituents.

Alaska is not Wasserman country. Will it be a Wasserman test to pull off a convention in deep Bernie country without another embarrassing protest, such as the one that cut short Hillary’s trip to East Los Angeles last week? And can Metcalfe hold her tongue?
