Publicola’s Erica C. Barnett sat in on state Democratic party chairman Dwight Pelz’s speech to the Seattle Metropolitan Democratic Club Wednesday afternoon and could hardly keep up with the chairman’s one-liners.

Here’s her full-piece. But to whet your appetite I’ll include a few samples:

Dwight Pelz

– Obama’s Secretary of Education Arne Duncan should be fired immediately because his bashing of teachersunions led to the assault on collective bargaining rights in Wisconsin and other states. “Arne Duncan’s got blood on his hands in Wisconsin because he’s been trashing the teachers union.”

– President George W. Bush was the worst president in U.S. History.

– On Republicans? “These are bad people. … They’re evil. These guys are fascists.”
