Politico: Liberal congresswoman gave most painful speech ever

posted at 10:01 pm on February 6, 2014 by Mary Katharine Ham

And, it was written by Daily Show creator Lizz Winstead, whose nasty partisan drive outgrew her funny long ago.

I want to revel in the schadenfreude, but this is so painful and makes me so sympathetically embarrassed, I’m not sure I can revel properly. Perhaps if I’d been in the room, I’d be more resentful of her assault on my senses and enjoy this more.

But I think you’ll enjoy it, in a rubbernecking kind of way. And, frankly, liberals get this kind of scathing review so seldom that I feel obligated to amplify it just to try to even the playing field. Lord knows none of them would have any compunction about laughing at, say, Michele Bachmann over a similarly epic bombing. You gotta believe Edwards never saw this coming from Politico:

Washingtonians sit through terrible speeches all the time: dry rules hearings, partisan floor lectures and, let’s face it, even the State of the Union some years.

So it was a bad day for Rep. Donna Edwards Thursday, when Washingtonians gathered at coffee pots and in lunch rooms across town and deemed her performance at the Washington Press Club Foundation annual dinner Wednesday night the most painful we’ve endured in a long time.

It was supposed to be a comedy – an annual ritual where a member of Congress entertains a wonky crowd of journalists, lawmakers, and all variety of political insiders with jokes you wouldn’t mind repeating to your mother.

But more people were wincing than laughing.

“I survived the Donna Edwards #wpcfdinner speech of 2014,” tweeted Mike Memoli, a reporter for the Los Angeles Times who sat through the fiasco.

Ed Henry, Fox News chief White House correspondent, retweeted him, and added the hashtag: #isitdoneyet?

Edwards’ speech, reportedly written by co-creator of The Daily Show, Lizz Winstead, might have sounded great on paper or in practice sessions in front of a friendly audience, but it came off as a Republican hate-fest sprinkled with the kind of sexual humor that made the buttoned-up crowd squirm – not laugh. It’s a reminder how hard it is to entertain a tough crowd, like one filled with cynical journalists.

At one point Edwards, a Democrat from Maryland, made the equivalent of a sexual battle cry to ladies in the room: “Come on, help me y’all: I want to give a really special shout out to Nancy Pelosi and all my sisters in the libido caucus — holla’!” she cried out, raising her hands above her head.

Reaction: blank stares and furrowed brows.

A crass, stupid Republican hate-fest from Lizz Winstead? Who would have guessed? Read the whole thing, bask in it for a bit, and check out this groaner. I’m not sure in what room this works. And, I spend a lot of time in some very nerdy political rooms:

Edwards also laid the slap down on a group of Republicans she joined on a trip to Egypt for a congressional junket, including tea party firebrands Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) and Steve Stockman (R-Texas).

She showed a picture of the group on an overhead screen with an arrow pointing to her, an African American, buried in the back behind a bunch of white travelers.

She said the trip gave her “Stockman syndrome” — a condition, she explained, derived from hanging out with so many tea partiers that she said she found herself falling in love with more centrist Republicans like Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas).

Crowd response? Crickets — and more reaches for wine.

I think this chick means Stockholme syndrome haha
From wikipedia

Stockholm syndrome, or capture–bonding, is a psychological phenomenon in which hostages express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings toward their captors, sometimes to the point of defending them. These feelings are generally considered irrational in light of the danger or risk endured by the victims, who essentially mistake a lack of abuse from their captors for an act of kindness.

U.S. News and World Report reported on this,, too. This was good:

“She even made fun of Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., her Republican comedy counterpart for the night, for his failure to spell “shenanigans” at the National Press Club’s centennial spelling bee back in September. “S-H-E-N-A-N-I-G-A-N-S,” Edwards spelled into the mic. Flake, as Whispers reported, gave this comeback at the time: “I’m Mormon, I’m not supposed to know anything about shenanigans,” he had said.

Flake continued with the self-deprecating humor when it was his turn to take the stage. “As a Mormon, I abstain from coffee, tea, tobacco, alcohol and gambling,” Flake said. “I told a former secretary once that I was going to soon be celebrating my birthday. He said, ‘How?’”

MD 4 is hardly alone. Although SCOTUS had repeatedly ruled that districts are supposed to be “reasonably contiguous” essentially there is no remedy to counteract the “legislation” that creates them in the blue states. The justice department sues red states for alleged racial intent on their gerrymanders but it’s not a two way street. Check out Illinois 4, home of the repugnant Guttierez, which has no logic at all except to connect chicago Latino neighborhoods miles apart. Still, I’ll see your Donna Edwards and raise you two Hank Johnsons, plus a trip to Guam before it capsizes

Fanatical Muslim jihadis may have a better collective sense of humor than angry liberal feminists.

That said, Edwards and Winstead’s mistake was in reading the calendar wrong — if this had been done in February 2009 instead of February 2014, masy of those same reporters would have been in full laughter, because five years ago they believed the conservative movement and the Republican Party had been slain by Barack Obama, and his omnipresence was about to take American and the world into progressive Valhalla.

Five years later and the bloom is off the liberal rose, even for D.C. journalist who hold out hope Hillary can salvage the situation. Edwards routine was crafted by a writer who makes Jon Stewart look at least like a Beltway Republican by comparison, and no doubt was tested before a group of people not just locked into the mindset of 2009, but whose TV sets are probably locked on MSNBC. They’re among the Truest of True Believers, and thought the media was, too, going into Thursday’s performance.

The Voters in the very blue state of California cleaned up a lot of its gerrymandered districts by establishing an independent commission to draw the new district lines.

California went through some growing pains (and Democrat hijinks) with the new system, but overall it was a BIG improvement.

Charles Munger Jr. deserves major credit for pushing this reform in California.

If other states are interested in cleaning up their gerrymandered districts they might want to ask Mr. Munger for his advice on lessons learned from the California experience.

If it can be done in California, there is no excuse for other states not to try it. Other states should get an early start before the next redistricting in 2020.

Here is some info to get other states started:

In 2008, California voters took the power to draw legislative districts out of the hands of state lawmakers. On Tuesday, voters opted to remove their power to draw Congressional districts as well, handing that power over to the same independent commission that will draw state legislative boundaries, according to preliminary voting tallies and exit poll results.

The passage of Prop. 20 extends the power of the independent commission established when voters passed Prop. 11 in 2008. That measure was backed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Prop. 20 was funded by Charles Munger Jr., the son of investment banker Charles Munger, who spent more than $12 million of his own money to pass Prop. 20. It was vigorously opposed by congressional Democrats including Rep. Howard Berman and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who wanted control of Congressional maps to remain in the hands of the Democratically controlled Legislature.

Political maps for legislative and congressional districts will be redrawn before the 2012 elections. New maps are drawn every 10 years after the U.S. Census is completed.

I know Donna Edwards because my Mom lives in her district. This is Prince Georges County, Maryland, a district which is largely african-American.

The district was represented for many years by Albert Wynn, a Democrap, an African-American, a leftist tool, but still, a fairly decent man. He made the mistake of voting in favor of he Iraq War resolution, and was defeated in a primary by Donna Edwards, a black woman, a lawyer who ran some foundation and…well, that was it for her qualifications. She was against Bush and the Iraq war, that was what she ran on, and she defeated Albert Wynn, the incumbent, in a primary (2008).

Donna Edwards is like a female, even stupider, Obama. A moron, really, as you can tell from this story. Hopefully this is the end of her moronic career. African american voters, wake the hell up.

They have taken off their masks, stripped off their clothes and are dancing wildly to the drumbeat of hate. This is what they really are, down to the bone.

Somehow, this is racist.

You racist racists, you. Hang your heads in shame and apply to Al Sharpton for forgiveness.

Miss Edwards, a perfect ombud for the brain- dead and clueless
Donkey Party.

I know Donna Edwards because my Mom lives in her district. This is Prince Georges County, Maryland, a district which is largely african-American.

The district was represented for many years by Albert Wynn, a Democrap, an African-American, a leftist tool, but still, a fairly decent man. He made the mistake of voting in favor of he Iraq War resolution, and was defeated in a primary by Donna Edwards, a black woman, a lawyer who ran some foundation and…well, that was it for her qualifications. She was against Bush and the Iraq war, that was what she ran on, and she defeated Albert Wynn, the incumbent, in a primary (2008).

As I said, I live in her district as well. Wynn was actually a pretty decent guy for a democrat. He was more of a classic liberal, though and not a progressive. He was also extremely personable, and whenever I contacted his office got a response to my issue immediately. Not so much with Edwards, who only seems interested in helping if you’re in the correct neighborhood.

Before they redrew the districts in the early 2000s my rep was Connie Morella. A RINO to be sure, but light years beyond Edwards.

(Also I don’t think Wynn lost the primary. I believe he either resigned or stepped down due to some sort of scandal, but I may be wrong)
