Debbie Doubles Down (on Socialism)

The other day John noted that Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz stumbled badly when Chris Matthews asked her the difference between a Democrat and a socialist, between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. Today Chuck Todd of NBC’s “Meet the Press” renewed the question, and Schultz doubles down on her clueless non-answer. This has gone from embarrassing to stunningly incompetent. It’s one thing to be unprepared for Chris Matthews asking the question in his typical machine-gun fashion, but she’s had several days to come up with a serious answer, and clearly can’t. Maybe because there isn’t one: It’s socialists all the way down in the Democratic Party today. Enjoy this 1:45 long pathetic spectacle:
