Rather rich coming from the head of the Democratic party.
Via The Hill:
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz criticized the field of Senate Republican candidates this week as “contestants in the beauty pageant of extremism.”
The five-term Democrat congresswoman cited Rep. Paul Broun’s (R-Ga.) comments on evolution: He said last year that evolution is a lie “straight from the pit of hell.” Wasserman Schultz also cited Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-Ga.) for defending former Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) for saying victims of “legitimate rape” rarely become pregnant.
She also noted that Karen Handel has accused Planned Parenthood of orchestrating a campaign against Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
“Right now, unfortunately for America, you have a Republican Party that has been strangled by the tea party,” Wasserman Schultz told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I expect that in their primary they will busily try to out-extreme each other.”
