Dem Chair Compares Gov. Walker to Wifebeater

 

The Democratic Party’s “War on Women” rhetoric just reached its ultimate conclusion

Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz ripped into Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s record Wednesday during a round-table discussion on women’s issues at the Milwaukee Athletic Club.

The Florida congresswoman said: “Scott Walker has given women the back of his hand. I know that is stark. I know that is direct. I know that is reality.”

Wasserman Schultz added: “What Republican tea party extremists like Scott Walker are doing is they are grabbing us by the hair and pulling us back. It is not going to happen on our watch.”

For the DNC chair to equate Gov. Walker’s free-market principles with domestic abuse sets a new basement for cheap rhetoric. Not only does it poison our already ugly political climate, but it cheapens the suffering of real abuse victims.

It also reveals just how desperate Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the rest of the Democratic leadership are heading into the midterms. I suppose we should expect the attacks to get even worse as we close in on November.

In other desperate Democrat news, Sen. Mary Landrieu is getting hammered over her residency in Washington, D.C. instead of her home state of Louisiana. Although she insists New Orleans is her true home, even her voter registration card says differently.

She instinctively wrote down her Capitol Hill address before crossing it out and writing in her parent’s address instead:

    Man, those Wisconsin Republicans are mean.  First Paul Ryan goes rolling Granny off the cliff in her wheelchair, now Scott Walker is a wifebeater.  What’s the next charge going to be, cannibalism?

    One of the best — and worst — things about the Internet is that it gives you an instant and transparent look into the mind of an insane person.

    When you pass someone on the street who is clearly deranged, you only get a snippet of his or her bananas internal monologue. But with the magic of the internets, everything a crazy person says can be broadcast instantly, and can carom around the guardrails of good sense.

    For instance, the egregious and embarrassing Debbie Wasserman Schultz. This story is a perfect example of the hurricane of stupid that storms continuously inside her head.

    She. Needs. Medication.

    It’s gathered here, on Twitchy. But here’s a choice response from @RBPundit:

    Thought Experiment: The media reaction if @Reince said this instead of @DWSTweets.

    And here’s what probably drove Debbie Wasserman Schultz over the edge, from 538:

    I’m inclined to focus more on the registered voter result that shows Walker slightly ahead. That doesn’t mean he’ll win. A 3-point lead at this point indicates that the race is too close to call. Still, Walker (as the Huffington Post Pollster aggregate shows) is a slight favorite.

    “Slight” will change, I hope, in the coming weeks.

    Our Lt. Governor is a woman. According to DWS, she is also a severe masochist.

    This is just the leading edge of the mounting Lefty freakout.  They’re staring stomach-churning catastrophe in its face and that reality is making them blurt out stuff like that DWS just said. 

    I have high hopes that they will be saying really stupid stuff soon.

    I did not see any mention of wives in your clips.  I think she was implying that he beats all womyn and not just the one he is married too.

    Where was Ms. Wasserman Schultz when Patrick Moran’s girlfriend and Alan Grayson’s wife and Juanita Broaddrick were victims of male violence? By powerful men, no less.

    The scary part? A bunch of political professionals looked at the available candidates, and said, “yes – she’s the woman who we want to represent us at TV public appearances.”

    I guess MSNBC is grooming her for the weekend noon slot.

    Alright, Ricolawyers, where, exactly is the line between an asinine comment and libel? And when will a Republican in public official notice it and act on it? Even if it only amounts to lawfare, I’d love to see DWS burn through oh, 10, 20, 30 million in legal fees.

    Next time, try to find a really bad picture of her.  One that makes her look like a Ferengi masquerading as human.  Something like that…

    Good heavens she’s a wretch. It’s confirmed everytime I check into this thread and is confronted with her mug. Her face matches her twisted logic.

    And what’s with Landrieu’s signature? What is she in 8th grade? Might as well finish it off with a happy face over the i. Juvenile. Of course, she lives with her parents so she may be emotionally a juvey. Grow up ya twit!

    A long time ago I thought that DWS was doing her best at a crappy job.  Maybe even a better job than some of the people representing the GOP, since she has a strict “no apology” policy whereas some of the GOP people start out apologizing.

    Now I realize that she is either too stupid or too bloody minded to quit.

    She is not stupid. She is willing to say whatever it takes to raise money, turn out the votes, or cow the media. She still has her job because she continues to succeeded at all three.

    That’s why I offered bloody-minded as an option.  She’s in for the long haul, then. 

    It would be nice to be able to say that the voters in her district will get tired of her, but they haven’t so far.  The GOP needs people as committed to advancing their party’s cause as she is to advancing hers, so that she can be at very least pushed to the sidelines.

     H v A and Spin,

    I have a lot of Ferengi friends and they are very offended that you would even suggest she is one their kind.  I would personally recommend that someone get a skin sample for DNA analysis.

    I find the claim that she has two X chromosomes in each cell to be  more than I can reasonably allow without conclusive proof.  Since she is obsessed with identity politics, I want proof of identity.

    Regards,

    Jim
