DW-S . . . is blissfully impervious to nuance in her political thought. She is thoroughly but not thoughtfully liberal, reflexively but not reflectively liberal, deliberately but not deliberatively liberal, contemptuously but not contemplatively liberal. She courageously does interviews even with hostile hosts, but her responses predictably consist of rewarmed pap.

Now DW-S has perpetuated her there-goes-the-neighborhood vendetta against West. While he was absent from the chamber, she used her speaking time in the House (using "incredulously" when she meant "incredibly") to lash out at West for backing the "cut, cap and balance" bill which will, in her trite rhetoric, gut Medicare yadda yadda yadda. West was offended that she violated the honor code of Congresspeople against singling out colleagues for vitriol in their absence. He dispatched an email calling her vile, despicable and unprofessional, not a lady and unworthy of respect. She reacted by publicizing the email.
Now he is being excoriated by all sorts of preux chevalier types and soul sisters of DW-S for affording her such disrespect. DW-S is a bigger shot these days, because she was recently elevated to the chairwomanship (did I put an extra i in that word?) of the Democrat National Committee. The elites in Washington Ditzy are lining up with her hyphen against his adjectives. So it falls to a dashing man-in-the-street, man-about-town, man-of-the-world, man-for-all-seasons type like myself to defend him with hyphens to spare.
After all, there but for the grace of God go I. Had he hired me to write those emails, the language would have been far more caustic.

The events in Oslo today vindicate everything said by Col. West.
Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is a cookie-cutter liberal with a lot more chutzpah than brains, as the writer of the article (Jay D. Homnick) deftly points out. Military hero Lt. Colonel Allen West was lied about and insulted on the House floor, while absent from the chamber, which was doubly crass of Mrs. Hyphen. He responded with the kind of anger the insult deserved. I’m glad he refused to apologize to Wasserman-Schlutz. She doesn’t deserve an apology. This should be a hint to other Republicans: when insulted and maligned in a public forum, strike back. Bullies on the left can’t deal with it. They’ll whine and cry to the media but they’ll also think twice about doing it again.
It sucks when your opposition starts following the "new" ROE, eh b***h?
