Joe Isuzu award goes to Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Hot Air:

That doesn’t mean it wasn’t a surprise. The NY-09 seat has been in Democratic hands since, well, Warren Harding was President. So what did the leader of the Democratic Party have to say about the loss?

Democratic party leaders insisted the loss wasn’t a harbinger of things to come. “It’s a very difficult district for Democrats,” said Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, noting its Democratic margins there tend to be the second lowest of all the districts in New York City.

Well, in her defense, she still hasn’t gotten past that tough loss when Andrew Peterson edged David O’Connell for the seat … in 1922. The same seat was held by Geraldine Ferraro, Chuck Schumer, and Anthony Weiner … when he had his pants on. Going back to 1996, the lowest percentage a Democrat got in a general election in this seat was 60.8%, which was in 2010 while the Tea Party took 63 seats from Democrats that ended up being a lot more “difficult” than this one. It was such a difficult district that Weiner ran unopposed in 2006 and virtually unopposed in 2008.

Maybe it’s just me but I think Debbie is just too honest to be DNC chairwoman. If she wants to keep her job she needs to learn how to lie better.

Lazarus Long:

“The best way to tell a lie is to tell the truth so unconvincingly that no one believes you.”

Then again maybe Debbie figures that the best way to tell the truth is to lie unconvincingly.

    Does she even think before she speaks? I’m weary of the Dems constantly rewriting history. The seat has been reliably D for almost a fucking century, through good Dem candidates and bad ones. Even the Reagan landslide didn’t touch it – not even close.

    No, Debbie, this is not a difficult district for Democrats. You are either fucking certifiably insane or so blinded by partisan spin and tribal loyalties that you will say anything to protect Obama.

    And of course, we all know that the best way to improve the fortunes of a Party that no one believes anymore is to make the lies even bigger and more obvious.

      Anyone who denies that the lose of this seat was anything but a referendum on Obama *is* both delusional and will say anything to protect Obama.

      Debbie can stand there til the cows come how talking about what a beautiful clothing the Emperor is wearing, but the rest of world sees he’s naked.

      As chairman of the DNC, I don’t really see much choice except to lie your ass off. Part of the job is protecting a president of your own party and I don’t recall anyone ever putting truth over that especially for losses or wins in special elections.

      She could resign as chairman but that’s not far from her alternative. As part of the reality based community, I could care less what she has to say about it.
