Literally

by Michael Walsh

Somebody needs to explain to new DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz what the word “literally” literally means:

After these comments were aired Sunday on CNN, she backed off a bit:

The NRCC released a statement in response on Monday — titled “Wasserman Schultz will ‘literally’ say anything” — calling the congresswoman’s statements “absurd accusations” and “offensive remarks.”

Wasserman Schultz’ response came later in the day, and started off as a retraction of her statement: “Jim Crow was the wrong analogy to use.”

Then she immediately reiterated her point that Republicans like voter-suppression laws that target minorities: “But I don’t regret calling attention to the efforts in a number of states with Republican dominated legislatures, including Florida, to restrict access to the ballot box for all kinds of voters, but particularly young voters, African Americans and Hispanic Americans.”

Something tells me the Wasserman Schultz tenure at the DNC is going to be a laff riot.
