Wasserman Schultz goes toe to toe with "Cheney's Cheney"

The Washington Post notes one of the key architects of the Bush administration's war policies -- vice president Dick Cheney's chief of staff -- had several "tense exchanges with lawmakers" including Florida's Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a member of House Judiciary subcommittee.

In a tense exchange with Wasserman Schultz, the Post writes, David Addington, dubbed "Cheney's Cheney," "asked sharply: 'Is there a question pending, ma'am?' Addington then began suggesting another line of inquiry, prompting a sharp argument. 'So I'm pretty clear on why I'm asking you the questions and which one I'm asking you,' Schultz said."

Sounds like it was quite a show.

The Los Angeles Times' blog credited Wasserman Schultz with nailing Addington as she asked him about his visits to Guantanamo, "asking whether he discussed interrogation techniques with officials there."

Deb

No doubt there was a show. She can be quite the headliner. Heard her in the Florida Legislature. However, when she was on our side, it was great. Rather not have anyone else.

Debbie WaWa going toe to toe with the Veep's counsel? Looks like Ms. Underwhelming is in over her head yet again. Cry me a river, Ms. Wasserman, over all those "sheepherders" that you say we picked up illegally in Afghanistan.

Whether you like her or loathe her, she's a forceful advocate for the causes in which she believes, her constituents love her, and she's risen far for being as relatively young as she is.

That said, frankly, I'm tired of going into her office and having her tell me, "I know your issues."

She doesn't listen when she thinks she knows something about something; and, that's only going to get worse the longer she serves.
