Democrats Never Take Responsibility For Their Own Screw-Ups!

Note to DNC: Stop Blaming Putin, YOU Wrote the Emails

 By Tom Knighton July 26, 2016

For those who find themselves in opposition to Democrats, the last couple of days have been hysterical. Despite the dysfunction on display last week at the Republican National Convention, it's clear that the GOP has nothing on the Democrats.
Democrats immediately went on the offensive, blaming Russians for the DNC email hack and claiming Putin's government is trying to influence American politics. While that may or may not be true (hard information on who is at fault is still unavailable), none of that has anything to do with the fact that it was Democrats who wrote the damning emails.
As Scott Shackford notes:

Putin may or may not have played some role in the hacking of the DNC, and certainly it's proper that the government investigate and track down who is responsible.
But neither Putin nor Russian hackers are responsible for the way the party treated Sanders and its supporters.
And this attempt to quickly deflect the subject matter over to Trump and Putin has the side effect (intentional or not) of again dismissively treating Sanders and his supporters' concerns as largely irrelevant to the establishment.

Of course, Shackford is right. ...
