I received an email Saturday afternoon from the Chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
She decided to lower the bar for me. The title? “This really pisses me off, Keith.”
She was so pissed off, she asked me for $3:
Republicans in Congress are dead-set on rolling back the progress that Democrats like you and I have worked so hard to achieve. They’ve already said that they’re going to try to repeal Obamacare, after more than 50 unsuccessful attempts (and two Supreme Court rulings in the law’s favor). They want to completely defund Planned Parenthood, an organization that provides necessary health services to women across the country. And if they don’t get their way, they’re just fine with shutting down the government — again!
I’m going to be frank: That pisses me off. As a woman, a mother, and a cancer survivor, I say that we can’t stand for this kind of irresponsible behavior — and it’s exactly what we’ll see more of if Republicans retain their majority in 2016. The American people deserve better.
Well, with the culture so coarsened, I guess, what difference does it make that our political leaders intentionally – as opposed to in a moment of frustration – discuss what is “pissing them off.”
How long before President Obama drops the F-Bomb and asks for five bucks? Not long, perhaps.
