Every once in a while, you just have to tip your hat to the other side; offer up the "well done"; and prepare yourself for the fight ahead. Yesterday was regrettably one of those unfortunate days for our side, if we're still in the business of being "honest" that is. I try to be, so I can admit it. Dems scored one yesterday with their selection of Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz to potentially head the DNC and replace outgoing Tim Kaine. On balance, yesterday's score was probably somewhere close to 99-1 with the release of Rep Ryan's Path to Prosperity; but at least they got on the scoreboard.
Why was this a "win" for the Dems?
I see this as a good choice for the other team for three reasons; and no FLORIDA is not on the list.
1)She is the most annoying woman this side of Nancy Pelosi. She's arrogant, she's pompous, she's shifty, she's inconsistent, she's flighty, and she's a hypocrite. In a nutshell, she's everything you want in a party head. She stands for nothing; and everything at the same time. She can talk "civility" and then spew vitriol in the next breath. In a nutshell, she's a passive aggressive Anthony Weiner wrapped in a Hillary Clinton pantsuit.
Via SharkTank - The term "ObamaCare" is "disparaging"
I guess "Bush Recession" was a term of endearment....
Tuscon Tea Party: Just to be clear, Ms. Wasserman-Schultz can be a hypocrite. From her website extolling the Lilly-Ledbetter Act:
“We’ve seen this law help more than a thousand American workers stand for their right to fair pay in the past year,” said Rep. Wasserman Schultz. “The Bush recession has been an unfair blow to most American families, but wage discrimination threatens Americans’ prosperity no matter the overall economic climate.”
2) The Obama campaign needed a woman. Hillary's not lifting a finger for this re-election bid, and the First Dietitian has bigger battles to fight- like ridding cities of Happy Meals and important things like that. President Obama's going to have to reach out to that elusive group that the MSM loves to call the "Independents" and Schultz may be just the woman to do it. She's a Breast Cancer survivor; she's BFF's with Gabby Giffords so the "civility card" looms in her left pocket; she's a mother of three; and she's got a ridiculous track record for really bad hair days. What's not to love about that? And, who better than a woman and a mom to take on Sarah Palin and/or Michele Bachmann, so the President doesn't have to?
3) The Mainstream Media LOVES HER!!! Chris Matthews even gave her an award.
Truth be told, I think heads of both the DNC and RNC are just about as useless as a straight guy in a bridal shop. They may be "asked" to come along, they may be asked to chime in, and they may even have opinions to offer; but at the end of the day, NO ONE really cares.
