For those who not following anything but the debt ceiling negotiations this week, you missed out on a doozy of a virtual smackdown.
Earlier this week, Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) tossed off an angry email to Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.) and CC’d all House leadership.
The next day the Congressional Caucus for Women’s Issues, led by Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), held a press conference blasting West for his comments, while Rep. Bruce Braley (D-Iowa) has made buttons in support of Wasserman Schultz (and even changed his avatar to prove it).
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., carries a musket on stage as he speaks during the American Conservative Union's Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) at National Harbor, Md., on Thursday March 6, 2014.
