Florida congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, you may recall, was forced to resign as chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee when hacked documents showed she was rigging the primaries for Hillary Clinton. She was booed off the stage at the party’s convention, in one of the few uplifting moments of this year’s presidential campaign.
You would have thought that Wasserman Schultz would be keeping a low profile, but instead she’s busy promoting regime change in Venezuela — or, as Debbie prefers to call it, “respect of constitutional and democratic processes.”
That’s part of the title of a resolution that the disgraced former Stalin of the Democratic Party introduced last week, along with a group of other congressional dead-enders that includes Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. The latter comes from a lunatic fringe Cuban-American family which supported the Bay of Pigs invasion and then fled to the United States. In 2006, Ros-Lehtinen publicly declared her support for Fidel Castro’s assassination, then lied about having said it until video evidence surfaced.
A number of other Florida House members joined these two loony tunes in introducing the resolution, which is a thinly veiled call for regime change in Venezuela. They have backing for that goal in the senate from mental midgets like Marco Rubio, whose relatives were heavily involved in drug trafficking, and Bob Menendez, who is widely considered to be one of the dumbest men to have ever plundered the state of New Jersey.
How dumb is Bob Menendez? He is the senator who managed to get busted IN NEW JERSEY for bribery and corruption AND IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC for shacking up with hookers AND he still can’t figure out which judge he needs to pay off to deep six the case. If real life outcomes were decided on merit, Senator Menendez would be working as a go-fer for Fredo Corleone in Las Vegas. In the contemporary United States, this brainless bozo has achieved lifetime elected government employment, which makes him, on paper, smarter than Chris Christie, Donald Trump’s handpicked Secretary of Mob Affairs.
I have some problems with the Maduro government in Venezuela, but it’s immensely preferable to the rancid old oligarchy that’s seeking to slime its way back into power now with the support of Florida’s Finest. Also, it’s ironic that Wasserman Schultz, the crooked vote-rigging former senior DNC Apparatchik, would have the nerve to promote “democracy” in Venezuela (or anywhere else, for that matter).
For years Debbie’s been in bed with thieving elements of the old Venezuelan elite who lost power under Hugo Chavez and fled to Miami to spend their stolen loot on Rolls Royces and oceanfront estates. When it comes to democracy in Latin America, Debbie Wasserman Schultz has the same credibility as Augusto Pinochet’s rotten corpse.
