Yes, we are again sucked into the vapid and idiotic brain of Debbie Wasserman Schultz who has made quite a name for herself launching one attack after another since assuming the position of D.N.C. chair. This is the same woman, please remember, who refused to call out the sexist attacks Hillary Clinton had to endure -- while Ms. Schultz claimed to be a Hillary supporter.
Ms. Schultz has armed an estrogen brigade and has them running forward to insist she was wronged. She is the one who started the attacks. It is on her.
She needs to stop whining and grow the hell up. If being called "vile" is too much for the little dear, then she needs to resign as D.N.C. chair.
Her little pity party is setting back the cause of women. We do not need to whine "sexism" when someone calls you vile. There is real sexism (Hillary experienced it non-stop) and there is this nonsense.
I was actually going to write about another issue but I was on the phone with Kat and then saw the garbage from Emily's List's Stephanie Schriock. Ms. Schriock is not a feminist. Everyone who knows feminism knew that. (And knew it back when she was on Al Franken's campaign before joining Emily's List.)
Ms. Schriock thinks the height of sexism is to be told you are not a lady. Yes, she must live in a padded cell. Emily's List just got even worse in my eyes. And I did not think highly of them in 2008. Ms. Schriock thinks she can bluster this into a fundraising and election issue. She needs to buy a damn clue and real feminists need to stop supporting Emily's List.
I am sure many Socialist women who stay in the political closet will continue to support Emily's List. I say "Good." Because I look forward to making 2012 all about outing their asses. If you think those of us who were betrayed and attacked in 2008 are going to get on board the Democratic Party wagon in 2008 (with the same sexist at the top of the ticket), you really are crazy.
This is C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot" for today:
