• Debbie Does Delusion: Wasserman Schultz Shares Her Midterm Fantasies

    Is Debbie Wasserman Schultz about to lose her position as chairwoman of the DNC? If things turn out as badly for Democrats this Tuesday as nearly every poll is currently predicting, that just might happen. There have been rumblings for months now that high-level Democrat operatives are not pleased with her leadership of the party, which basically amounts to parroting all of Barack Obama’s talking points and rattling off laundry lists of reasons why Republicans hate women and minorities. Apparently, there’s supposed to be more to the job than that — but Debbie has been quite content to continue along with the robotic style of base-rallying that she’s been employing since 2011.

    But there’s only so many times you can utter phrases like “Who has your back?” before the message rings completely hollow. After doing just that on ABC’s This Week, Debbie’s Republican counterpart, Reince Priebus, finally called her out.

    I don’t know why Debbie keeps using this “have your back” line … but I would encourage the media to actually look at what the DNC is actually spending on the ground with this ground game,” said Priebus. “The DNC, in reality, in this midterm, is not our competition — it’s the Senate Democrat Committee that’s putting the ground game together, not the DNC and not what Debbie’s talking about, and we’re winning on the ground … their message isn’t working.”

    No matter how things shake out on Tuesday, there’s a good chance you’ll see Carrot Top — er, sorry — Wasserman Schultz soon replaced as the DNC mouthpiece, even if she continues to be a congresswoman for a long time. In the best case scenario for Dems in which they hang onto the U.S. Senate, there’s still no arguing that their game in the House is in absolute disarray. I’d imagine Debbie would be hard-pressed to point to just one major accomplishment for the party as a whole that she has been responsible for in the past three years. That is, other than succeeding in getting millions of Americans to scramble for the mute button every time she appears on their television screens.
