Andrea Lafferty calls Wasserman Schultz 'a junkyard dog'; one of the nicest things Lafferty's said in years

by Jeremy Hooper

Andrea-LaffertyHere's the aggressively anti-LGBT Andrea Lafferty from the SPLC-designated hate group the Traditional Values Coalition offering some oh-so-measured thoughts about incoming Democratic National Committee chair Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL):

"Way to go DNC. You found the candidate who best fit your profile for DNC Chairman: a junkyard dog who is mean, nasty, shrill, able to screech at a moment's notice, aggressive, and of course able to manipulate the facts and always uncompromising."
Statement on Incoming DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz [TVC]

Oh but Andrea: Not everyone can be nice enough to say DADT repeal proponents constitute "a domestic enemy in our Congress and among lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender activist groups who seek to exploit the military for their political gain." Not everyone can be tam enough to suggest that open service constitutes a "massacre" of the military." Not everyone can be fair-minded enough to say our President cares about nothing "except Islam and the undermining of our nation." Not everyone can be pacifist enough to Photoshop the president both in front of the burning WTC towers and onto a Nazi propaganda poster. Not everyone can be respectful enough to paint a Congressional hearing concerning transgender nondiscrimination as nothing more than a "freak show." Not everyone can be factual enough to see beyond the credible science in order to claim there are anywhere from thirty to hundreds of different paraphilias (like sex with an amputees stump, feces play, etc.) that classify as sexual orientations. Not everyone can be sweet enough to refer to an important piece of nondiscrimination legislation as the "Barney Frank She-Male Shower Bill". Not everyone can be conciliatory enough to put Jesus on Wanted posters as a way to pit that particular religious figure against gays who support hate crime protections.

In short, Andrea: Not everyone can fit your definition of what a non-mean, non-nasty, non-shrill political spokeswonk can be. So let's give congresswoman Wasserman Schultz a chance to be something else entirely. Whaddya say?
