DNC Chair Tom Perez can't seem to say who the 'voice' or 'face' of the Democratic Party is

Rudderless

If wandering down the street in a vagina hat while shouting "hey hey ho ho" won elections, the Democrats would have nothing to worry about. Everyone acknowledges that leftists - who seem to have an awful lot of free time during what are normally work hours - are great at putting on a show. Marching, protesting, and rioting have become staples of the Dems' base.  Unfortunately, outrage hasn't equated to votes.

Dems are currently at their lowest level of power in almost a hundred years.

So, when the DNC Chairman Tom Perez is asked who he believes to be the face and voice of his party, Democrats should hope he has a good answer. After all, if you're part of a rudderless organization that can't sell its agenda to middle America and seems to think Bernie Sanders qualifies as a "fresh face," you're probably hoping that someone will step up and take the reins.  

...Well, prepare for disappointment, because Perez seems to think the same "protesters" who couldn't drag Hillary across the finish line are the face and voice of the party.

Here's Perez appearing with MSNBC's Ali Velshi.  The host wonders "Are you the voice of the Democratic Party today? Are you the clearest voice that people can see?"

If you pay close attention to that clip, you'll notice that the host is circling a central truth that Democrats refuse to acknowledge.  Their party is leaderless, and the people who scream the loudest aren't drawing support - they're turning voters off. Couple that with the fact that most of what Dems are offering (looking at you, single-payer healthcare) has already been rejected, and you've got a recipe for continued disaster.

Instead of trying to find a way to moderate their ranks, they seem to be going all in on irritating, irrational, and unworkable radicalism.

This, obviously, is good news if you enjoy watching them lose.
