Is DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz a Republican plant, cunningly executing an elaborate piece of political performance art?  (Devoted readers may recall that this isn't the first time I've engaged in similar speculation about a Florida Democrat).  Consider the evidence: Cartoonish attacks, easily-refutable lies, laugh-out-loud gaffes, silly hypocrisy, delusional policy pronouncements, and now...ownership, baby:

In Debbie Downer's defense, why wouldn't Democrats be clamoring to claim ownership of this gangbusters economy?  Weren't we just informed on Sunday that Democrats have "turned it around," or whatever?  Let the good times roll.  Says President Obama of DWS:  "Don't mess with Debbie!"  (a compliment he seems to bestow on his goofiest confidants).  Rest assured, Mr. President, righties won't lift a finger to "mess" with your hand-picked party chairwoman.  She's doing a fabulous job.
