My assumption always with DWS is that she knows the truth but is happy to lie to any extent her party needs, which is why you and I know her as America’s most lifelike talking-points robot. Not this time, though. Her ignorance is palpably genuine; she reacts the way you’d expect her to react if this guy had asked her where the government got the thermite used to blow up the World Trade Center. Two things here. One: Needless to say, this is no boutique counterterrorism issue. She’s not being asked whether she knows how many people work for JSOC, for instance. She’s being asked about the president maintaining a list of people to be targeted for death by U.S. intelligence, one of whom was a U.S. citizen. A member of Congress, not to mention chairman of the DNC, should probably have an opinion on that, no?

Obama does not need them to be intelligent, or informed, he just needs them to be blindly loyal, readers of talking points.

Pretty much a perfect description of his voting base.

I'm no fan of DWS, and if she were to be gone it wouldn't bother me in the least.

That being said, I don't find her any more annoying than her RNC counterpart, Reince Preibus.

This pretty much describes any high-profile member of either The Democratic Party or The Republican Party. Selecting specific politicians from one specific political party to criticize, only plays into the convenient myth that these two parties offer anything significant to distinguish them from one another.

Preibus doesn't go around acting like he's got amnesia when asked a question however.
