Debbie Wasserman Schultz channels Al Franken SNL character Stuart Smalley in stupid fundraiser
As Chair of the DNC, DWS has a clever little fundraiser going. If clever means incredibly stupid, insulting, patronizing, and just plain obnoxious.
Per Weasel Zippers this is what the fundraising letter says:
If you’ve ever wanted a mug that says WORLD’S GREATEST DAD/MOM/GRANDPARENT/KID, it’s time for you to earn it.
Chip in $10 or what you can today, and you’ll be automatically entered to take your whole family out to New York to meet with President Obama. When you get back home, you can look at that mug and think, yes, I am the world’s best.
(Because you are, Drew. You are.)

It reminds me of another genius on the left, former Saturday Night Live comedian turned United States Senator: Al Franken. His infamous SNL character Stuart Smalley spoke in vapid platitudes and was ever reaffirming the fact that he was “good enough, smart enough, and dog gonnit, people like me.”
Who knew the gestalt of that inane character would be reflected in a Democratic fundraising letter a couple of decades later?
