This woman had been reduced to a punchline after this week’s debacle at the DNC, but don’t let her endless idiocy prevent the adoring media from actually declaring her a “winner” coming out of the convention. Naturally, the big “winner” was Obama, whose speech has already been widely panned. What do you expect for a guy who last week called the RNC a convention in “black and white,” but who waxed nostalgically last night for a president who died in 1945.
Anyway, for sheer entertainment value, this is a must read.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz. The Democratic National Committee chairwoman, who was an outspoken backer of Clinton in the 2008 Democratic primary, had a good week. She delivered a personal speech about her battle with breast cancer while making the case for a second term for Obama. Though the Florida lawmaker, like other Democrats, struggled to explain why the “God” reference was initially removed from the party’s platform, she ultimately will be judged on whether Obama wins.
She had a good week, huh? Only in the liberal media can a woman who was caught lying about lying be called a winner.
But Wasserman Schultz has moved beyond political hackery – she’s arguably in need of mental therapy. Did she really think Ambassador Oren would sit quietly by while she put words in his mouth? Can she possibly have imagined that reporters covering her false claims weren’t recording her words? The voters in her district have been given good reason to question her mental competence.
Another winner? The already-forgotten mayor of San Antonio. Quick, can you name him?
Julian Castro. The San Antonio mayor’s address was overshadowed by the first lady’s, but his political stock skyrocketed this week. His speech used humor to carve up Romney’s record, and it revved up the crowd. The Latino politician showed he is ready for the national stage.
His stock has skyrocketed? With whom exactly, outside the media? He can forget winning higher office in deep-red Texas, so this media fantasy that he’s the next Obama is absurd.
And after these four miserable years, who really wants to be the next Obama?
Another winner? Hillary Clinton, of course, who spent her convention time 12,000 miles away. Come to think of it, any Democrat who stayed away from this trainwreck at least didn’t diminish themselves.
