Striking a Nerve With the Nerviest

Rudy Giuliani’s skepticism regarding Barack Obama’s true sentiments about America seems to have struck a raw nerve among liberals. Which means he’s surely on to something. At the very least, shouldn’t some reporter ask Obama or his crew about Michelle’s famous remark from 2008 that “for the first time” she was proud of her country? Just what was her attitude, or the causes of her relatively lower lack of pride in her country, before that moment?

You know you’ve hit a nerve when the Jar-Jar Binks of the Democratic Party, DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, essentially says “no mas!” to this criticism. But buried deep in this Politico story is a telling detail about her full squalidness:

According to people who spoke with her, when she sensed Obama was considering replacing her as chair in 2013, she began to line up supporters to suggest the move was both anti-woman and anti-Semitic. Under fire last fall for her leadership, she took Obama’s decision not to remove her then as evidence of renewed strength and said she was confident no one could get her out of the DNC before her term is over at the beginning of 2017, according to sources who’ve spoken with her. She’s also been known to joke around the office about how having a vacation home in New Hampshire might one day be helpful in a presidential run.

Oh, please please run for president, Ms. Wasserman Schultz. As if Lizzie Warren and Hillary aren’t enough entertainment.
