Pro Tip: Use Word 'Visionary' Sparingly When Describing Politicians

As Moe Lane writes, “Debbie Wasserman Schultz gets eviscerated by Doug McIntyre of 790 KABC:”

The Washington Free Beacon has transcript. It’s all downhill for Debbie after her attempt to describe — to an L.A.-area radio host, her fellow Democrat, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa as “a visionary—someone who’s focused on making sure we have a strong education system, making sure the economy continues to come back here in California, and he’s a national Hispanic leader as well.”

As McIntyre responds, “Congresswoman, here’s the problem. We live here. We’ve lived with this for years and years and years.” Villaraigosa is such a visionary, he can’t even make the cement mixers run on time to pave L.A.’s sidewalks:

The vision that Antonio Villaraigosa has is desperate vision of getting out of office before the bankruptcy of Los Angeles kicks in 2013. He’s hoping like hell that Obama wins, so he can be appointed Asst. Sec. of anything, so he doesn’t have to sit here and deal with the damage that he did to the city. I mean, come on. You can sell that in North Carolina; you can’t sell that in Los Angeles.

Read and/or listen to the whole thing.
