Tonight, I attended a town hall meeting featuring John Zody, the utterly 
uninspiring and banal Chairman of the Indiana Democratic Party. The 
meeting was as informative and inspiring as it was frustrating and sad. 
Without doubt, the Indiana Democratic Party is in serious trouble. In a 
county that’s 48% people of color, less than five of the 65 folks in 
attendance were black or brown.

Honestly, I actually feel bad for the party and its die-hard supporters. 
That’s no bullshit. They’re so fractured and disorganized it’s almost 
unbelievable. For instance, the so-called leaders of the Lake County 
Democrats were too busy drinking Budweisers at the VFW bar to even pay 
attention to what most of their constituents were saying. That’s the 
level of respect the Democratic Party gives its people.

Mark Lopez, the top aide for Rep. Pete Visclosky (D-IN), spent the night 
walking around the room, making sly remarks under his breath, and 
shaking hands with the local drunks and criminals who operate the party 
at the county level. If you don’t know the history of the Democratic 
Party in Chicago or Lake County, Indiana, please, do some our research.

At this point, I’m convinced that anyone who thinks they’re going to 
reform the Democratic Party is not only wrong, they are completely out 
of touch with reality. The Democratic Party resembles a walking zombie 
that doesn’t even realize it’s dead yet. That’s how bad tonight was, at 
least in terms of what people should expect for the future of the 
Indiana Democratic Party.
