Fun: Debbie Wasserman-Schultz interview about L.A. mayor doesn’t go so well

This clip is best appreciated after re-watching the confrontation between DWS and a MRC TV reporter over her nasty line last year about the GOP wanting to bring back Jim Crow. Caught by surprise in that case, America’s most advanced talking-points robot could only turn and flee. This time, having apparently been reprogrammed in the interim to deal with hostile questions, she came prepared. Reason’s Tim Cavanaugh, an Angeleno, sets the stage:
As I noted the other day, a look at the City of Angels’ gross domestic product by metropolitan area indicates local output has fallen by more than 4 percent, and possibly as much as 10 percent, since the former Tony Villar took office. He has been famously branded a failure by local media (which were once extremely supportive) and his few good moves – including bringing in Miguel Santana as chief administrative officer and a very late hit on the local teachers union – have been long-after-the-fact efforts to control damage he caused himself. Villaraigosa barely won an essentially uncontested re-election campaign a few years back; he has stood out as particularly corrupt in a city legendary for its corruption; and at some basic level, America’s creative capital has just ceased to matter during his tenure. McIntyre mentioned a few of these points to Wasserman Schultz. Her response:
“I really find your comments disappointing and borderline offensive.”
Here’s the audio so that you can judge for yourself how “offensive” Doug McIntyre was in wondering why a terrible mayor should be given a prized gig at the Democratic national convention. Smart stuff from DWS. Version 184.108.40.206 will be a formidable adversary.
