Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Debbie Wasserman Schultz Wasn’t Going to be Nice When Dumped from the DNC

By on 2.23.15 | 7:03PM

There's no question that the DNC has suffered under Debbie Wasserman Schultz's reign. She and Barack Obama have been at each others throats over her leadership (or lack thereof) since 2011, before Obama's second campaign for President, and rumors have been swirling about her ouster since she started hardening up her attitude on television interviews ahead of what was supposed to be a uniting, conciliatory and hopeful second coronation for the President.

Lots of people have wondered why she wasn't sacked. After all, she's presided over a pocketbook that runs consistently into the red and her in-person contributions have been, well, less than stellar. Even now, she's considering running for Senate in order to save herself the trouble of having to convince the people of Florida that she's worth their vote every four years. It turns out, that when confronted with her own ineptitude, Debbie didn't hesitate to pull the same guns on the Obama Administration as she did on Republicans. Had Obama ousted her from her treasured position, she was going to accuse him of - what else? - waging a war on women.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz is so Awesome, She Might Run for Senate

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, fresh off her appearance at the 2015 Grammy Awards, thinks she's doing a bang-up job at being part of Florida's Congressional delegation. 

She thinks she's so good, it seems that, later this year, when she inevitably steps down from her position as DNC chair, a job she's done so well that a 2016 nominating convention in Philadelphia will be her crowning achievement, she's considering going from a mere Congressional Representative to being a Senator, after Florida's current, more talented Senator, Marco Rubio, steps down from his role in order to run for President. 

Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic National Committee chair, is strongly considering a bid for U.S. Senate, calculating that having Hillary Clinton at the top of the 2016 ticket would help lift her candidacy in a year-of-the-woman campaign.

Debbie and Sheila’s Night Out at the Grammys

I'll be rounding up the highlights from last night's Grammy Awards a bit later, but suffice it to say, if you didn't watch it, you missed very little. As is tradition, we all got an eye-full of Madonna's rear end, questioned whether Kim Kardashian's dress was set to stay on for the whole night, were reminded that there was once such a thing as "rock and roll" but everyone who was involved in it can barely remember where they put their Metamucil, and that despite our best efforts at outlawing torture in this country, Ariana Grande still exists.

One unexpected highlight, however, was seeing Congresswomen Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Sheila Jackson Lee, best known for haranguing Republicans for their ill treatment of the downtrodden and economically depressed, skating across the red carpet like they belonged there

It sounds very much like the liberal warnings against welfare reform.
