Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is off to a promising start as DNC chair for conservatives who see her as the epitome of what's wrong with the Democrat party.

First, she engages in inflammatory rhetoric that's South-Pole distance from the truth. She throws this in with the cliche political barb of her opponents (the Republican party) being "anti-woman"...which is pretty laughable, considering a woman actually got on the official GOP presidential/vice presidential ticket last time around, unlike what happened with the Democrats. Here is what she said to reporters, according to the Washington Whispers report:

"It's just so hard for me to grasp how they could be so anti-women as they are," she said at a breakfast roundtable with reporters.

"The pushback and the guttural reaction from women against the Republican's agenda out of the gate, the war on women that the Republicans have been waging since they took over the House, I think is going to not only restore but possibly helps us exceed the president's margin of victory in the next election," added the popular Florida congresswoman.

The basis of her charge was the recent vote to defund Planned Parenthood and Title 10 funding for clinics that perform abortions.

That, added to the GOP's budget plan to reform Medicare and slash spending, she said, amounted to a radical agenda that will turn women off ...

That wouldn't make sense even if women were the only people receiving Medicare. This is pretty ridiculous, even for Wasserman-Schultz. The myth that abortion is solely a woman-issue needs to end. So does the myth that telling a woman she can't kill her (unborn) child is somehow anti-woman.

Then there's Wasserman Schultz's hypocricy (praticed by both parties but perfected by Democrats) of saying something that sounds good as a stump speech -- and doing the complete opposite. This incident comes to you courtesy of The Hill:

The chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) appears to drive a foreign car, despite criticizing Republican presidential candidates for supposedly favoring foreign auto manufacturers.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), the chairwoman of the DNC, ripped into Republican presidential contenders who opposed President Obama's 2009 bailouts for General Motors and Chrysler.

"If it were up to the candidates for president on the Republican side, we would be driving foreign cars; they would have let the auto industry in America go down the tubes," she said at a breakfast for reporters organized by The Christian Science Monitor.

But according to Florida motor vehicle records, the Wasserman Schultz household owns a 2010 Infiniti FX35, a Japanese car whose parent company is Nissan, another Japanese company. The car appears to be hers, since its license plate includes her initials.

Awkward.
