Thoughts from a Yellow Dog Democrat living in Olympia, in the great BLUE state of Washington

I am a liberal because it is the political philosophy of freedom and equality. And I am a progressive because it is the political path to a better future. And I am a Democrat because it is the political party that believes in freedom, equality and progress. -- Digby

Debbie Wasserman Schultz's Betrayal

Debbie Wasserman Schultz (DWS) waited until October 26th before she supported Annette Taddeo -- after months of defending Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. This was a BIG deal since DWS was co-chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s (DCCC) Red to Blue initiative. Instead DWS lavished compliments on Ileana. "I can't say enough good things about Ileana Ros-Lehtinen; she has been my friend since I was first elected to office," Wasserman Schultz said, noting she relied on Ros-Lehtinen's advice to help balance the demands of elected office and motherhood."

So now we all have to pay the price for your friendship -- Ileana voted AGAINST the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and AGAINST the stimulus package.

Thanks Debbie! Still glad you protected your girlfriend?
