I didn’t believe it when I heard that the Democrats chose an anti gun control pro-lifer who’s opposed to the health care law to be the next head of the DNC, and sure enough, my disbelief has been totally confirmed:

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) will be the next head of the Democratic National Committee.

The four-term lawmaker will succeed former Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine, who announced his candidacy for retiring Sen. Jim Webb’s (D-Va.) seat earlier in the day.

Vice President Biden made the announcement in an email to supporters on Tuesday.

“In selecting Debbie to lead our party, President Obama noted her tenacity, her strength, her fighting spirit and her ability to overcome adversity. President Obama expressed great admiration for her as a leader, and he was honored that she accepted this important challenge on behalf of the Democratic Party,” he wrote.

Wasserman Schultz, who was a Hillary Clinton national co-chair in 2008, is a liberal House member who believes the term “Obamacare” is akin to congressional blasphemy.

She won’t be giving up her congressional seat, however. The last person to serve in Congress and as head of the DNC concurrently was former Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CounTrywide).
