NRCC: Pelosi should be "put in her place"

"Put her in her place."

You've got to be kidding me.

The National Republican Congressional Committee has really crossed the line. The NRCC publicly encouraged Gen. Stanley McChrystal, commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, to put Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi "in her place" for voicing an opinion on the the situation there. They went on to say Pelosi was "out of her league."

Fortunately, EMILY's List alum Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz didn't waste time responding to the outrageous attack:

"It's evidence [Republicans] long for the days when a woman's place was in the kitchen. Now a woman is third in line for the presidency... But it's not surprising, coming from a party that's 80 percent male and 100 percent white."

And here's the kicker: "I think the place for a woman is at the top of the House of Representatives," Wasserman Schultz said.

I couldn't have said it better myself.
