Yesterday a verbal vote had to be taken 3 times to even approach what sounded to many like a 50-50 proposition rather than the two thirds majority required by Democratic procedural rules to get language mentioning God and Jerusalem as the capital of Israel placed back into the official Democratic platform. As if the controversy wasn’t in itself damaging enough to the party–that they had left, no, removed God from the language of the platform entirely and also declined to affirm Jerusalem as the capital of Israel more than once in recent weeks, the voice vote was another catastrophe because by many accounts they failed to actually get the two thirds vote required and the dissent of the nays was profoundly strong and when the resolution was passed anyway the stadium was filled shouts and boos.
