For reference, Part 1 is here. (I wonder what number we can reach before the election?)
In keeping with the most vitriolic, dishonest and outright lying presidential campaign of memory, I bring you the leader of the drove of pigs, better known as the Democrats, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Via The Blaze:
Regardless of whether or not you agree with Anderson Cooper’s politics, the guy is arguably one of the last real journalists left in the mainstream media. During his CNN show on Thursday, the host proved that during his “Keeping Them Honest” segment where he ripped into Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) for “misquoting” a Los Angeles Times article in a fundraising email, in which she attempted to tie GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s abortion stance to Rep. Todd Akin’s. Akin came under fire this week from all sides for arguing that women’s bodies can prevent pregnancies in cases of “legitimate rape.”
Cooper was persistent in trying to coax an apology out of Schultz, but she remained defiant throughout the entire segment.
The email in question argued that the GOP “just voted to embrace Akin’s position by including a constitutional ban on all abortions — even in cases of rape or incest — in their 2012 platform.”
Schultz also criticizes Romney and his running mate Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) in the email for “saying they don’t entirely agree with that plank.” Cooper then addressed the LA Times quote that Schultz used to make her point, which he says she “misquoted.” From the email:
“…but guess what? The Los Angeles Times reported yesterday that the platform was, and I quote, ‘written at the direction of Romney’s campaign.’”
Those exact words did actually appear in the LA Times, Cooper explained, but Schultz took them “completely out of context.”
It gets better, or worse, depending how you look at it.
Also, if you can stomach it, there’s video of the whole lying, squealing pig. Hey, just using Crazy Uncle Joe Biden's vernacular.
