Debbie Wasserman Schultz Blames Tea Party For The ‘Edgy’ And Divisive Rhetoric In Politics

Wow. It’s amazing that these people can actually stand in front of a crowd, with a straight face, and lie like they do. Wasserman Schultz, who is arguably one of the most divisive democrats these days, said to an audience in New Hampshire that the lack of civility in our discourse really began with the rise of the Tea Party.

“We need to make sure that we tone things down, particularly in light of the Tucson tragedy from a year ago, where my very good friend, Gabby Giffords — who is doing really well, by the way, — [was shot],” Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic National Committee chair said during a “Politics and Eggs” forum this morning. “The discourse in America, the discourse in Congress in particular . . . has really changed, I’ll tell you. I hesitate to place blame, but I have noticed it take a very precipitous turn towards edginess and lack of civility with the growth of the Tea Party movement.”

I’m assuming that Debbie thinks that rapes, assaults, and crapping on police cars is “civil” and not “edgy.”  You can watch the video below if you can stomach it.
