DWS Says She Hesitates to Place Blame for Tucson Shootings, Hesitates Momentarily, Then Blames Tea Party


Debbie Wasserman Schultz (above, right… no wait, left… I think) is a demagoguing bottom-feeder even by DNC standards. A lone deranged freak committed a horrible crime that forever changed the life of one of DWS’s colleagues as well as many others, so blaming a group of people who had nothing to do with it, purely for political reasons, is her definition of helping tone down the rhetoric? That sounds about right:

We need to make sure that we tone things down, particularly in light of the Tucson tragedy from a year ago, where my very good friend, Gabby Giffords — who is doing really well, by the way, — [was shot],” Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic National Committee chair said during a “Politics and Eggs” forum this morning. “The discourse in America, the discourse in Congress in particular . . . has really changed, I’ll tell you. I hesitate to place blame, but I have noticed it take a very precipitous turn towards edginess and lack of civility with the growth of the Tea Party movement.”

To add insult to injury, DWS also blamed the Tea Party for her teeth and hair. Now that’s a low blow:

While we’re waiting for Debbie Downer to apologize, enjoy the crickets:
