Sexism! DNC Chair Blames Shutdown On Cranky Old Men

Ted Turner said men should be banned from serving in office. Now Susan Jones at CNSNews.com reports Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz says women could solve the shutdown in hours because  "a woman doesn't want to ruin the person on the other side of the aisle or the table."

The DNC chair – who can barely get through a sentence without denouncing Republicans as “extremist” – touted The Fairer Sex on Morning Joe:

"If we put all the women, Republican and Democrat, in the House together, the consensus from all of us is that we would get this done in a few hours," Wasserman Schultz boasted.

Peter King joked she should try agreeing with Sarah Palin. "You know, I would argue that even if Sarah Palin were in the room, that we could find a way to get to yes, because that's usually women's goal," Wasserman Schultz replied.
