But then, she’s a Democratic member of Congress and Chair of the Democratic National Committee, so it isn’t really surprising. What is somewhat surprising (1), though, is that she would lie about her race-baiting in a way that’s easily falsifiable.
You see, a while back, Congresswoman Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) said that the Republicans, because they favor requiring ID to vote, wanted to take the nation back to the days of Jim Crow. Then, just a day or so ago, she claimed to a crew from MRCTV that she had never said any such thing. (2)
Really. She said that.
So, not only is she either ignorant of or simply ignoring the Democrat Party’s dirty record on race; whether done deliberately or born of stupidity, she then tells a lie that is easily proven a lie. She not only spits in the faces of anyone concerned about the integrity of our elections, she denies ever doing it while wondering where the saliva you’re wiping off came from.
I feel mildly sorry for Democrats, because we had to suffer through Michael Steele, and I know what those face-palm moments feel like. But only very mildly, because their “leaders” have done a lot of harm to the country, and that sympathy is tempered -almost quashed out of existence- by a strong desire that they keep this tool in charge through November. She’ll be a great help — to our side. As a gaffe-machine, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is Joe Biden without the hair plugs; she’ll make the jobs of Republican communication shops very easy. And, as Allen West pointed out, she is a mean-spirited, vile harridan without any sense of honor or shame, making her continued public humiliation a patriotic duty. (3)
In fact, she’s perfect for the Democrats. Monumentally dumb and an open harpy. I wish her a long tenure in her job.
(1) Until one remembers how many members of Congress, on a bipartisan basis, forget about the deadly combination of handheld recorders and the Internet.
(2) My reaction on hearing the news last night.
(3) Perhaps mean-spirited and vile of me, too, but, hey, I’m just one of those people who want to bring back Jim Crow and cross burnings, you know?
