DNC Chair Who Blamed Tea Party for Tucson Shootings Says Comparing Obama to Cruise Ship Captain is ‘Incendiary’

RNC chairman Reince Priebus compared President Obama to Captain Schettino of the Costa Concordia cruise ship. On a Debbie Wasserman Schultz “inflammatory remarks” scale of 1 to 10, that rates about a 1.5, but DWS nevertheless wants you to believe it’s the most offensive thing she’s heard since the last time she asked an completely honest person “how’s my hair look today?”

From Real Clear Politics:

“The captain of the Costa Concordia has been charged with manslaughter, and for the RNC chairman to compare the President of the United States to someone who has been charged with manslaughter shows a dramatic level of insensitivity to the families of those victims. Unbelievable comparison.”

Yet when people were murdered and injured in the Tucson shootings, Debbie Downer not only blamed the Tea Party, but stands by it to this day. Isn’t that fit of politically motivated dishonesty insensitive to the families of those victims? In DWS’s world, I guess not.

To quote Navin Johnson in The Jerk, “roll the ugliness”:

Update: The Looking Spoon has a photo to go with this story that would just thrill DWS.
