Today she has a column "That's Conservative?" where she describes Sarah Palin as "empty vesselette in a skirt," "the Palin Idiotette," "Palinmessiah" and "vapidette." Schlussel refers to Sarah Palin supporters as "Palinmessiahteapartybots," "Sarahbots" and "Sarahmentalslaves." She says of them:
Nope, the gushing followers of Sarah Palin won’t care about any of this. Because everything Sarah Palin–America’s most selfish and piggish woman (not to mention, likely the most airheaded)–does is magical and genius. She turns our streets into cotton candy and lollipops.Apparently not satisfied with insulting a large group of conservative activists, Debbie attacks popular blogger and author Pamela Geller, another supporter of Palin:
BTW, this should be a lesson for you regarding frauds like Scamela Geller, the car loan fraud scammer, who takes money from Sarah Palin’s PAC for ads and who repeatedly gush over this vapidette. They claim to be against Iran and Ahmadinejad, against Jesse Jackson, and against illegal alien amnesty. But the bottom line is–like Sarah Palin–they really aren’t.Schlussel has been on an anti-Hannity tear for some time, calling him "Sean Vanity" and accusing him of fiscal and other improprieties.
So what's up with Debbie? She is a very angry woman who seems on the verge of some kind of breakdown. I doubt that shooting herself in the foot, however, will bring about a cure. I suspect that she is professionally jealous of conservatives far more successful than she is, in a way similar to Michael Savage's angry jealousies of a couple years back.
Debbie Schlussel has lost enormous credibility with me. Since she likes to call other people cute names, I will afford her the same honor. I hereby designate Debbie Schlussel to be known hereafter as "Debbie Demento."
With friends like Debby Demento, you don't need enemies.
UPDATE: Debby Demento sent me an email threatening me with legal action for using her very flattering "copyrighted photo," so I have replaced it with another one that is far less flattering (she looks quite fat in the replacement photo above). She is, of course, full of bovine excrement, since the use of the first photo clearly falls in the "fair use" doctrine of the copyright law. However, I will comply with a photo that she clearly does not own and which probably shows her as she really looks in everyday life, which is not very flattering.
