Donna Brazile threw a temper tantrum on live television on Tuesday afternoon, during which she told Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel to "go to hell."

Brazile is the former acting chair of the Democrat National Committee who was fired from left-wing CNN for leaking debate questions to gal-pal Hillary Clinton in advance of her debate with rival Bernie Sanders in 2016. She is now a Fox News political analyst.

Brazile and McDaniel were discussing the Super Tuesday elections and what could happen if Sanders were to go into the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee this summer as the frontrunner. McDaniel suggested the Democrat leadership might use the “second ballot” super-delegates to steal the nomination from Sanders at a brokered convention.

The very idea that the Democrats might try to cheat Bernie out of the nomination prompted Brazile to demand that the Republicans stay "the hell out of Democrat primaries." That's when Brazile told McDaniel to "go to hell." That is rather odd behavior from someone who in fact did rig an election to keep Bernie from winning the nomination in 2016.

A lot of loyal Fox News fans were unhappy when the cable network first hired Brazile but I felt she deserved a chance. She brings a different perspective to the debate and is not a dumb woman. She has been a disappointment, however, in that she is more propagandist than analyst.

Brazile is comfortable dissecting the Republican Party and holding its feet to the fire. But let Ronna McDaniel comment on the corrupt Democrat nominating process and Brazile loses her cool. What's up with that?
