I think Debbie Wasserman-Schultz owes Anthony Weiner some flowers. If not for his ongoing saga, the focus would have shone far more brightly on the DNC Chair. Yes, she has been tagged Debbie Downer. But it only scratches the surface.
After all, Wasserman-Schultz has seen fit to call Republicans “anti-woman” and accuse the GOP of prosecuting “a war on women.” Not to be outdone, she also claims Republicans “want to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws.”
Let’s remember that the Florida Congresswoman was handpicked by President Obama to lead the DNC. What does he have to say for himself? Well, nothing of course. After all, Obama has a re-election to win and in the pursuit of winning the ends justifies the means. Obama knew exactly what he was getting when he tapped Wasserman-Schultz. Well, so much for disagreeing without being disagreeable.
Yet Wasserman-Schultz is reflecting a popular sentiment not only within the Democratic Party but in broader left-wing circles. A good many Democrats and their fellow travelers genuinely believe Republicans and conservatives are “anti-women” who want to go back to the days of Jim Crow. As long as Democrats and liberals are prepared to hold such sentiments and are comfortable expressing them in public then a reasonable public discourse is simply unattainable.
The best conservatives can do when they are faced with the Debbie Wasserman-Schultzs of the world is to say, “You can do better than that.”
