For DNC Chief Wasserman-Schultz, just when is a win, a 'win?'
Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a ditzy broad.
There. I said it. No doubt some will go all PC on me and tsk tsk my sexist characterization of DWS. Too bad she isn't a golden haired ditzy broad so I could do a twofer and throw in some blond insults too.
But I am of the firm belief that it isn't a sexist, misogynistic characterization if it's true. And DWS is, has, and probably always will be - ditzy. True, the appellation, "broad" might be stepping over the line, but like "peanut butter and jelly" and "Burns and Allen," the words "ditzy" and "broad" are inexorably and eternally linked. I mean, what's the point of calling a woman "ditzy" if you can't add the ancient and dishonorable follow on "broad?"
That said, Tina Korbe at Hot Air explains why you know who is a you know what:
According to Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, it was a loss for Mitt Romney when he won Iowa and it was a loss for Mitt Romney when he won New Hampshire. But it's not just that she thinks winning is losing that's batty; it's that she thinks both Iowa and New Hampshire provide evidence that the Republican electorate is not excited to go to the polls in November 2012.
Tuesday night, DWS had this to say: "In addition to that, the Republican turnout was off about 40 percent from the turnout in 2008, showing that this is not a field that their side is very enthusiastic about."
Au contraire, Ms. Wasserman Schultz. As it turns out, the turnout for the New Hampshire primary set a new record for the GOP. The New Hampshire Union-Leader reports:
Voter turnout Tuesday set a record for a Republican presidential primary but fell short of the Democrats' turnout record set four years ago.
The Secretary of State's office released county, city and town summaries showing that 247,223 votes were cast for candidates on the Republican ballot.
That's a turnout of 45 percent of the 546,411 names of Republican and undeclared voters on the Jan. 4 checklist. ...
Ms. Wasserman Schultz was also recently in the news accusing the GOP of being responsible for the shooting last year of Rep. Giffords. The shooter, Jared Loughner, is pretty ditzy himself. In fact, he's so ditzy the judge decided he was incompetent to stand trial in the shooting. How the GOP could be responsible for Loughner's ditizness, Ms. Wasserman never gets around to explaining. Just like she never quite explains how winning is actually losing, and how a record turnout in a primary is actually a decline of 40%.
Ditzy is as ditzy does, I always say.
