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.”

    “…..bad people….evil….fascists.”

    Well, at least we know the D’s are good at name calling.

  2. Arne Duncun has the audacity to try to improve the lot of the students. Doesn’t he know that the paramount duty of the Department of Education is to advance the interests of the adults?

    Bob Chanin, National Education Assocation General Counsel at his final Representative Assembly in 2009, puts it all in perspective for us in this brief video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-piPkg

    never mind…Youtube already scrubbed it.

  5. mattersnot1 says:

    Democrats are projectionists.

  6. When you can’t compete in the marketplace of ideas this is what you get. Name calling.

  7. Monterey says:

    And we care about these peoples’ opinions WHY?

  8. Monterey says:

    Btw, anyone reading this: This is who the democrats ARE, here in WA state. DON’T vote for any of them anymore, except Brian Sontag and Tim Sheldon. The rest really don’t inspire confidence and they are sorely lacking in common sense and reality!

  9. taxedenoughintacoma says:

    Teachers unions are the problem. The only reason this guy cares is because of the donations the teachers make to fund his party. People are figuring out this is a scam that must end.

  10. Finally he’s speaking out and telling the truth.
