Reason #1534 why Florida's Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is my favorite Democrat in Congress

When will the wingnuts learn: It's not nice to mess around with Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

The Congressman from Florida's 20 District has a habit of making Republican hacks look like fools and today was no exception. On FOXNoise Sunday, Brit Hume had Rep. Wasserman Schultz on to talk about Florida's efforts to resolve their convention delegation problem with the DNC.

In typical FOXNews style, Hume attempted to accuse Florida's Democratic legislature for pushing up the date of their state's Presidential primary. Known as someone who doesn't put up with bullshit, as you'll see in the video clip, Rep. Wasserman Schultz quickly dismisses Hume before he can get going while whacking him upside the head with the facts.

She shoots...she scores!

If only we had more Democrats who were bold enough to directly confront misinformation from the noise machine like Florida's Congresswoman.
