    Talk about lipstick on a pig.

    Debbie Wasserman-Slutz claims NY-09 is a "Very difficult district for Democrats" The Last time republicans won the district was almost a century ago.

    Are these democrats really this delusional?

    Republicans won two House seats in a special election last night. One, in Nevada, had been a relatively safe district, and Republican Mark Amodei cruised to victory over Democrat Kate Marshall as expected. Also as predicted, Republican Bob Turner won a six-point victory over Democrat David Weprin in NY-09, a Congressional district in the heart of Democratic stronghold New York City. The margin of victory exactly matched polling leads for Turner from both Siena and Democratic pollster PPP in the final days before the vote.

    That doesn’t mean it wasn’t a surprise. The NY-09 seat has been in Democratic hands since, well, Warren Harding was President. So what did the leader of the Democratic Party have to say about the loss?

    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.

    Well, in her defense, she still hasn’t gotten past that tough loss when Andrew Peterson edged David O’Connell for the seat … in 1922. The same seat was held by Geraldine Ferraro, Chuck Schumer, and Anthony Weiner … when he had his pants on. Going back to 1996, the lowest percentage a Democrat got in a general election in this seat was 60.8%, which was in 2010 while the Tea Party took 63 seats from Democrats that ended up being a lot more “difficult” than this one. It was such a difficult district that Weiner ran unopposed in 2006 and virtually unopposed in 2008.

    Debbie is trying to think again. Last time she tried you can see what it did to her hair. It just isn't working. She needs to stop trying to think.

    Debbie Wasserman is delusional. She was shocked that Republicans consider illegal immigration to be illegal.

    she is another example of why democrats should not be elected to office.

    democrats refuse to understand that giving away more money is not the answer to a problem caused by giving away too much money.

    They are some pretty stupid voters in Florida's 20th congressional district.

    She is intellectually superior to Sarah Palin. Notice how much smarter she is than Sarah Palin. Notice how much more sensible she is than Sarah Palin.

    This is clearly Bush's fault.

    Pass the Jobs Bill NOW !

    Not only that, but the bill has tax increases that the Dem-dominated House and Senate voted down under Pelosi and Reid in 2009, but don't dwell on cosmetics. The yet-to-be-convened Super Committee has been tasked in the bill to come up with a way to pay for all of it, but again, this is a minor inconvenience. Just pass the bill. Just like Obamacare, you will have to pass the bill in order to know exactly what's in it.

    Pass the bill NOW.
