This is how you go after an extremist candidate:
Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-Fla.) called Republican Iowa Senate candidate Joni Ernst an “onion of crazy” as the race there tightens.
Speaking at the Iowa state fair on Saturday, Wasserman-Schultz sought to tout Rep. Bruce Braley (D-Iowa), who has been dropping in the polls, and portray Ernst as extreme.
“I know that this state is know for its wind energy, for corn, for soybeans, but that woman is an onion of crazy,” she said. “Every time you peel back a layer, you find something more disturbing about her views.”
She pointed to Ernst’s suggestion in January that President Obama should face “removal from office or impeachment,” a comment that Ernst has sought to walk back.
Wasserman-Schultz then called out Ernst’s May comment that “I do have reason to believe there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq,” which Ernst has also walked back.
Ernst's craziness certainly has it's layers like saying people who are on Medicaid have "no personal responsibility" and siding with Glenn Beck on the Agenda 21 conspiracy theory. She's turning out to be a competitive opponent for Rep. Bruce Braley (D. IA). By the way, if you're looking for Democrats to support in this upcoming election, Howie Klein points out that Braley is one of the Democrats to vote against militarizing the local police.
