New DNC chair revealed: Debbie Wasserman-Schultz

posted at 6:19 pm on April 5, 2011 by Allahpundit

She’s an above-average fundraiser (see the graph towards the bottom of the page here), an assiduously on-message interviewee, a rep from a crucial swing state, and of course a woman, which may help Democrats marginally with a key demographic. Oh, and she’s also a “heroine” to Planned Parenthood, natch.

Congrats, Debbie. Now for your first lesson on messaging. Repeat after me: “Republicans want to kill grandma.”

She would be the first woman to serve as the permanent head of the committee in a presidential election year, party officials said. At least two women have served short stints in the position, but were temporary chairwomen.

Ms. Wasserman Schultz, 44, is known for her strong fund-raising abilities, party officials said, and would become one of the few high-profile woman surrogates on television for the president. She first gained national attention during the Florida recount in 2000, when she was a state legislator, and has been a rising figure in the party over the last decade.

Former Governor Ted Strickland of Ohio was among the finalists for the position, party officials said, along with a handful of other former Democratic governors.

She’s replacing Tim Kaine, who’ll spend next year accusing George Allen of wanting to kill grandma. I was going to celebrate her appointment by reposting the video from February of her objecting on the House floor to the term “ObamaCare” for being disparaging, but in honor of Ryanpalooza, let’s go with this one instead from last September. The Democrats need people who are expert in scaring seniors, and they don’t come more expert than liberals from Florida. Good call, Barry.

Wow. I find this unfathomable. She’s an idiot.

ButterflyDragon on April 5, 2011 at 7:16 PM

The first time she says that Republicans “want to kill Grandma”, I wanna see a Republican turn around and tell her that Democrats want to kill all of the people who are going to help TAKE CARE of Grandma….

TeresainFortWorth on April 5, 2011 at 7:16 PM

Um… The combative crazy one? LOL

Fallon on April 5, 2011 at 7:22 PM

You wait till she’s vetted and has to answer for her sister and brother in law.

She and her family are political poison.

Key West Reader on April 5, 2011 at 6:55 PM

Haven’t heard about this. What did they do?

Naturally Curly on April 5, 2011 at 7:23 PM

pass out the ear plugs…

djn on April 5, 2011 at 7:24 PM

Maybe she didn’t want the job, but Donna Brazile should have been the one and only choice to head the DNC. I cannot fathom why they keep passing her over for untalented hacks like Tim Kaine and Debbie Wasserman-Schulz.

Republicans in Florida should begin demanding that DWS resign her House seat. She cannot be a decent Congresswoman for all the people in her district if her other job is attacking Republicans all the time.

rockmom on April 5, 2011 at 7:25 PM

Can’t wait for some more DWS vs Megan Kelly !!!
Muwahahaha.
BRING IT !!!! and pass the popcorn !!

pambi on April 5, 2011 at 7:26 PM

Wow. I find this unfathomable. She’s an idiot.

ButterflyDragon on April 5, 2011 at 7:16 PM

It’s called hitting rock bottom from a corporate standpoint.

I feel a bit bad for her because of the way she landed in this position because I’ve seen file clerks elevated to upper management in times of absolute crises. Their promotions were meant to shield the higher ups from culpability in failure.

DWS has been by Pelosi’s side since day one as a Freshman. She’s going to go down with the sinking ship and if she stands and manages *somehow* to save face for the Party at Large? Let her take a stab at it..

My opinion of her credibility will not change, but I have a sense of sad admiration for her willingness to take charge of a sinking barge of bilge filled bile.

Key West Reader on April 5, 2011 at 7:28 PM

She is just Howard Dean with longer hair (and more testosterone).

cannonball on April 5, 2011 at 7:28 PM

Imagine if Joe Biden were younger, Jewish and sort of a woman. Bingo, you have Debbie.

She fits right in with her predecessors.

Whenever she comes on the screen I leave the room, just like when Obama shows up.

ladyingray on April 5, 2011 at 7:43 PM

I went and watched some vids of this cow on YouTube….

She apparently graduated from the same school of ‘How to tell a blatant lie and not even flinch’ that Obama did.

And when she gets caught in the lie she quickly switches to the boiler plate talking points BS.

She is the face of the DNC. Well done!!

Wasserman Schultz? Never trust a Muslim.

Mason on April 5, 2011 at 7:50 PM

Oh my. When I was a registered Democrat I would cringe whenever this woman would open her mouth. Not only an embarassment to the female species but to congress. She is below average intelligence and her grasp on sanity is questionable. She’s a terrfible liar that doesn’t know when to stop and she has an uncanny ability to make a fool out of herself over and over.

Now as a registered independant I cheer her appointment. A week will not go by without her sticking her foot in her mouth, getting caught telling absurd lies and making an epic horses ass out herself and her fellow Democrats. You go girl, I know you won’t disappoint!

Niteowl45 on April 5, 2011 at 7:54 PM

She is an impertinent witch, who never, ever, shuts up, no matter how many people are talking.

She is perfect to represent the left.

If the right allow to be bullied, see Rand thread, then they deserve to be devoured by the witches of the world.

Oh, and she’s also a “heroine” to Planned Parenthood, natch.

Wow Allah, you are being way too kind. This woman, during the 2010 campaign, was a shrill, psychotic mouthpiece who vomited the most outlandish, ridiculous, and partisan quotes that made Allen Grayson look like a conservative. She should write a check to the Oxygen Depletion Bank for her waste, fraud and abuse of air. Good choice Dems! America is going to LOVE her! Hahahahahahaha!

David2.0 on April 5, 2011 at 7:58 PM

DNC Chair is perfect for this brainless bimbo. All Wasserman-Schultz is capable of is mindlessly repeating DNC talking points.

bw222 on April 5, 2011 at 8:03 PM

You go girl, I know you won’t disappoint!

Niteowl45 on April 5, 2011 at 7:54 PM

Just go a bit easy on her. I don’t blame her desire to climb the ladder of democratic/progressive/communist success, but I loathe her beliefs and her ties to corruption.

If she had the audacity to take the mantle of hope in an effort to hold the torch for her party, to march the USA into a Socialist Utopia?

Utopia Democratic!

Eh. Whateves. Let her dream.

Key West Reader on April 5, 2011 at 8:06 PM

a politically correct and incompetent choice that should help our country get back on the right track

phillypolitics on April 5, 2011 at 8:09 PM

Oh, yes, yes, yes. This woman is more vapid than Debbie Stabenow and that’s a lot of vapidness.

She is Anthony Weiner in drag…. two birds of a feather… both equally wacko left wingers who go nah nah nah nah nah nah nah when they do not like what they are hearing.
Nuts, absolute nuts.

Key West Reader on April 5, 2011 at 8:43 PM

I hope Debbie keeps better track of her talking points, as chairman, than she did as a representative. She was always a joke to watch, as she’d repeat days old talking points, already refuted, like they were something new. One thing she’s really good at is interrupting anyone who doesn’t agree with her, she’s pretty rude, which should go over well for the kool-aid drinkers but not those actually trying to become enlightened on the issues of the day.

Of all the people the Democrats could have picked, she’s the worst for them and best for Republicans, IMHO, because she has no grasp of the issues, outside her small little circle, so she’ll never be able to relate to the rest of the country.

bflat879 on April 5, 2011 at 8:49 PM

This is gonna be good!!!!!

Gothguy on April 5, 2011 at 8:16 PM

Not only will it be good, it’s going to empower hairdressers throughout the southeastern area of the great state of Florida to give this thang a makeover.

On the western side of the State, we could outfit her with some class, charm, and decorum.

Unfortunately, like an abandoned jellyfish or a fish washed up due to the oncoming red tide, Debbie will decline.

Good luck, Debbie. Personally I wish you well. I just wish you were wiser. And good lawd, whatever you do? Get rid of that gat danged perm, dude, ya look aweful.

/night now.

Eh, in the end, I have to wish her well.

Good luck, Debbie. Glad you made it this far. I would ask you to stick to your principles but that would go against everything that I believe in.

Wish you well. Good luck, enjoy the big party. See you in 2012.

Thanks for the links. Small world isn’t it. I met with DWS back in the 90′s & she is really a piece of work. I also lived in Southwest Ranches for 20 yrs but moved from there in ’00 before her sister & brother-in-law came to power. Someone described her as a Pelosi mini-me which is a perfect description of this mindless liberal bimbo.

Ward Cleaver on April 5, 2011 at 10:38 PM

What stuns me about Wasserman-Schultz is that her district and Allen West’s are next to each other, splitting Palm Beach County roughly in half.

How can a single county (and largely, a single city!) elect two people so diametrically opposed in practically every respect? Talk about your “Only in Florida” moments.

Blacksmith on April 5, 2011 at 11:22 PM

Had it been Debbie Wasserman-Schultz tied up as a sacrifice for King Kong rather than Fay Wray, Da King would have used her as a suppository and needed psychological counseling for the rest of his life.

MaiDee on April 5, 2011 at 11:30 PM

When you meet a woman with two-last names, just say “Hi” and walk (or RUN) away. Trust me, your blood-pressure meter will thank you. At least some of the radical-left girls clearly announce themselves with a name-tag or a business card.

Dopenstrange on April 6, 2011 at 1:37 AM

Anybody brings up anything that could keep Debbie out of this job should be shouted down, gagged with one of those bondage things, and put into a basement until after the next election.

America NEEDS Debbie Wasserman-Schultz – NOW, more than ever! (With silent apologies to President Nixon, wherever he may be).

It is DWS, not Obama, who embodies the true nature of the Democratic Party. Obama just wants to golf and party, and is a down-the-line moonbat leftist, but it’s not like he really cares about issues and stuff. His job is to look good, sound plausible, and have a great time.

Only DWS can show America how simultaneously obnoxious, loud, stupid, rude, and radical the Democratic Party has become.

So STOP talking about ethics and family, hairstyles and makeovers, voice lessons and rhinoplasty. We need Debbie just the way she is . . .

A dumb blonde who will say anything . . . . She’s perfect for DNC chair.

WannabeAnglican on April 6, 2011 at 8:13 AM

Of, course the answer to the Godless left, it that they kill off the poor females before they ever get a chance to exercise “choice” and thusly become grandmas.(Particularly if they are black.

By the way, since their beloved Roe V Wade, doesn’t the very definition of “Grandma” (grand-MOTHER) imply someone who choose life instead of slaughtering your very own children?

Don L on April 6, 2011 at 8:21 AM

Wasserman-Schultz is perfect for the DNC. She’s anti-God, anti-life and anti-liberty.

She’s a nasty leftist drone who will at all times use class-race warfare tactics to advance her power.

EasyEight on April 6, 2011 at 11:23 AM

Re: the Ryan vs Wasserman video, she does not want an “adult” conversation about any issue because she will lose. She can only win if she keeps it to an emotional soundbite level to use fear and anger to defeat reason and reality.

According to Wiki, when she was in the Florida legislature, Wasserman-Schultz fought for legislation requiring gender price parity for dry cleaning. You go, girl; that’s the kind of leadership America longs for. LOL
