    Debbie Wasserman Schultz's hairstyle may not be the most important topic being discussed in the country right now, but many think it's a conversation worth having. Even Democrats I know have snickered to me, "When is she going to do something with that hair?" On Twitter, one can follow the snarky remarks made by DWSHair, a Twitter persona allegedly created by Wasserman Schultz's actual hair. Not being an expert on hairdos myself, I consulted with BPR's crack advisory board of celebrity hairstylists to find poor Debbie a new do. Please vote for your favorite new hairstyle in the comments section...

    I do believe that DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz just wrested the #Winning hashtag away from Charlie Sheen: The VideoI’d say that Wasserman Schultz has achieved her goal of not creating jobs … except that Democrats haven’t exactly showed leadership, either. They fumbled Obama’s stinkbomb of a jobs bill, with two of their own caucus joining a Republican filibuster to stop it even after Harry Reid rewrote its tax provision. Even if the bill had gone to a floor vote, The Hill reports that it would still have failed: The only Democrats to vote against the measure were Sens. Ben...

  • Debbie Wasserman Schultz the Most Unlikely Fund-Raising Watchdog of All

    The Democratic National Committee claims it has banned contributions from special-interest groups and lobbyists under the leadership of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D.-Fla.), an ethical standard she demands that Republicans now follow. “The refusal to accept donations from federal lobbyists and PACs [political action committees] is critical to limiting the influence of special interests in the political process,” Wasserman Schultz says. But Democrats aren’t eager to follow the edict. And neither is Chairwoman Wasserman Schultz. Under her leadership, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) was recently forced to return thousands of dollars from a dozen lobbyists after the Center for Responsive...

    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. House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio), dismissed that idea. “This is a very seriously Democrat district,” Mr. Boehner said. “This is not a district that Republicans have any right to believe we could win.” Read the Wall Street Journal article for paid subscribers

    Politico ^ | 7-7-2011 | Doug Heye - OP/ED
    DNC chairwoman a work in progress By Doug Heye July 7, 2011 When President Barack Obama selected Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz to lead the Democratic National Committee, she was hailed as the best pick he could make. Since her election to Congress, Wasserman Schultz has quickly earned a reputation as a partisan warrior and strong cable news presence who could effectively put Republicans on their heels. Being both a woman and from the battleground state of Florida didn’t hurt either. But, like “The Hangover Part II,” Wasserman Schultz hasn’t quite lived up to her billing. From the start, there...

    I’m sure you’ve noticed how humorous, and at the same time pathetic, it’s been to watch the left go crazy about Bristol Palin continuing to remain on “Dancing with the Stars.” Palin is in the top three along with Disney Channel star Kyle Massey and Jennifer Grey of “Dirty Dancing” fame. The show’s season finale will air tonight at 9 p.m. Viewers have voted to keep Sarah Palin’s teenage daughter on the show seven times, despite the fact that neither she nor partner Mark Ballas can compare with the show's better dancers and their judges’ scores consistently reflect that fact....

    Put this in the "Wait, really?" category: Steve Wozniak, the computer programmer who co-founded Apple Inc., Monday was named a contestant on the upcoming season of "Dancing With the Stars." The man known as The Woz created the original circuit board used for the Apple computer and teamed up with Steve Jobs in 1976 to sell it. He quit working full-time at Apple two decades ago and, after years working on various projects, reemerged last week as chief scientist at FusionIO, a data storage start-up. Not only must his computer chops be pretty sharp still, but he must feel good...

    A woman has been given a driving ban after being caught more than twice the legal alcohol limit - while riding a 2.4mph mobility scooter. Amanda Leaff, 46, said she had taken the buggy from an Asda supermarket to save herself the taxi fare for her trip home. A court was told yesterday how it would have taken Leaff, of Stretford, Manchester, more than four hours to complete the ten-mile journey, had she not been spotted 'driving erratically' by an off-duty police officer.
