As you might imagine, the all knowing, all powerful Wizard of North Miami Beach, Shizam, disagreed with my opinion of both State Representative Barbara Watson and Congressional Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz. He sent me his most warmest greetings via email regarding two of my recent columns. In Al Crespo for State Attorney, I wrote about Watson’s alleged trickery in winning her election bid against John Patrick Julien, and in Frederica Wilson’s Foot in Mouth Disease, I said that “Both Frederica and Debbie are equally stupid.”
It’s a well known fact that Shizam absolutely despises Mr. Julien, so that’s not even worth addressing. Shizam’s defense of Wasserman Schultz, however, only shows that Shizam isn’t as omniscient as he’d love for all of us to believe.
Shazam sent me an email stating:
“As a cancer survivor, I gave Debbie Wassermann Schultz credit. She underwent seven surgeries while continuing to serve her community as a House Representative. Unbelievable but true! Amazing indeed. Today she is championing early breast screening exams…a life savior for many women.
She has served her community well. Never heard her name in a scandal. Had she been living in my district, she would have been getting my nod. I can tell you what she is not. She is not a hate monger. Nor a bigot. She is very Kind and respectful of all and has served her country well. If not my vote, then my support. Hopefully she returns to office by God’s will.”
Obviously, Shizam is quite misinformed about Little Debbie and her duplicitous ways. First and foremost, as my regular readers already know, I take issue with anyone who plays the Victim Card. Whenever someone claims to be a victim due to their race, nationality, religion, gender or disability, or as in Wasserman Schultz’s case – cancer, I find it despicable. If you really want to get nit picky, any one of us can claim to be a victim of something or other. Take me, for example. I could claim that I’m both Jewish and female, which qualifies me as a “victim” of anti-Semitism and sexism. Before I married my present husband and was raising two young children on my own, I was a “victim” of single-mom-ism. Since I’m only 5’2″, I’m quite sure I’ve been a “victim” of heightism at one time or another. Plus, now that I’m almost a senior citizen, I can claim ageism as my new Badge of Victimhood. On top of all those problems, I’m also a blonde, which causes people to assume that I’m dumb. So, go ahead and add blondism to my list of Things That Prove I’m a Victim.
Yes, I am being sarcastic. Regardless of my circumstances, whether they are within my control or not, I choose not to be a victim of anything. My motto is, “Shit happens. Deal with it.”
Of course I don’t belittle Ms. Wasserman Schultz’s breast cancer, with which 12.4% of all women in this country will be diagnosed. But my point is that I can’t imagine that a normal woman would use this ploy to try to win an election. I find that deplorable! Then again, if she had an actual record to run on, she wouldn’t have a reason to pull out the Victim Card.
Shizam’s statement that he’s “never heard her name in a scandal,” means that he’s probably unaware of her ultra-obnoxious bullying behavior last May when she was invited to speak at Temple Israel about US-Israeli relations. Once she learned that there was another scheduled speaker whose opinions differed from hers, she demanded that the Temple’s Board of Trustees not allow anyone else to speak that night. The ensuing brouhaha started by her temper tantrum caused a member of the Temple to resign whose family had belonged for seventy years! Hey, Shizam: That’s SCANDALOUS!
Another SCANDAL involving Debbie that somehow wasn’t on Shizam’s radar happened just last week in Aventura during early voting. Miz Deb was campaigning on the street just outside the precinct and blocking traffic. When a police officer respectfully asked her to stop, Debbie blew a Don’t-You-Know-Who-I-Am? gasket, promptly called the Mayor of Aventura, who came running to her rescue, only to also be given a tongue lashing by Congresswoman Beyotch. In typical arrogant politician fashion, Debbie thought she was above the law. You know what I’m talking about. This is the very same behavior we’ve see from the likes of North Miami Beach EX-mayor Myron Rosner and North Miami current mayor Andre Pierre. Just because they’re elected officials, they think they can do whatever they want with impunity. Sorry, babe, doesn’t work that way. You put your mascara on one eye at a time just like the rest of us.
As for Shizam’s comment that Debbie Wasserman Schultz is not a hate monger, perhaps he hasn’t heard some of her more outrageous and constant diatribes against Republicans, and especially her lies that Republicans are against women and Israel. Fortunately for video, she’s been caught in lie after lie, and then caught lying about her lies to cover her own ass. Even CNN’s Anderson Cooper tore her a new one over her false smears about presidential candidate Mitt Romney and the GOP.
I stand by my claim that Debbie Wasserman Schultz is an embarrassment to the Democrat party, the Jewish people and women in general.
Based on his drooling defense of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, contrary to Shizam’s claims, she has not “served her country well.” She has only proven that she is stupid beyond all reasonable doubt.
While you cannot cure stupid, you can help eradicate it by voting it out. The electorate has a choice on November 6th, and that’s to vote for her opponent, Karen Harrington.
