Let me rephrase that: she abjectly, amazingly, incredibly stupidly forgets comparing Voter ID to Jim Crow laws, to the point of huffily walking off when reminded about that particular bit of hyper-partisan stupidity. Watch.
For those without video, that shows a clip of… Debbie Wasserman Schultz claiming that she ever made the above comparison, followed by a clip of… Debbie Wasserman Schultz explicitly making the above comparison, followed by a clip of… the meat of the first clip again, largely because mrctv apparently could not believe that the chair of the Democratic National Committee was this incapable of even remembering what specific fumble-fingered attempts to [incite] racial hatred were shambling about under her name. So they themselves had to go back and make sure that yes, she said this; and they must have decided that since they had to do a double-take, then so would their viewers, so they might as well make it easy for them.
Look, it’s no secret that Barack Obama put Wasserman Schultz in the position of DNC chair not because of her inherent abilities – the woman doesn’t actually have any useful life skills, past snarling – but because she wouldn’t say anything as Team Obama raided the Democratic general election coffers to get the President (and only the President) re-elected. That’s life. But this is an embarrassment– to Democrats. Particularly to those fools out there who actually do think that having to have a picture ID in order to vote is functionally equivalent to segregated water fountains, bathrooms, and lunch counters; they just had it ground in their faces that any kind of supposed support among the Democratic establishment for such inane pap was “just pillow talk, baby.”
Shorter Moe Lane: Debbie Wasserman Schultz is rapidly approaching Tim Kaine-status when it comes to being The Ideal DNC Chair.
