People Who Live in Glass Houses…

… shouldn’t throw stones. And since Rience Priebus (the RNC chair) did exactly that by accusing the Democrats of dragging their heels on the subject of Anthony Weiner, Debbie Wasserman Schultz (the DNC chair) called him on it, but good:

NBC’s “Meet the Press” hosted a discussion between the two major party chairs — the DNC’s Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the RNC’s Reince Priebus — and right off the bat, host David Gregory wanted to talk at length about Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.). Priebus stuck to fairly predictable talking points, complaining that House Democratic leaders did exactly what the RNC wanted them to do, but didn’t do it fast enough to make Priebus happy. “This is a question of leadership,” he said.

Wasserman Schultz responded by bringing up the one subject the RNC really doesn’t want to talk about.

“What Reince is saying doesn’t pass the straight face test, from a chair of a party who — none of whose leaders called for Senator Vitter, who actually broke the law, to resign, who is still serving in office. Hired prostitutes and evaded the truth. Chairman Priebus was chairman when Senator Ensign was also embroiled in unethical, unacceptable and probably illegal conduct, and he did not call for Senator Ensign’s resignation.”

Priebus noted that Ensign resigned, prompting DWS to remind him, “But you never called for his resignation, so it’s a double standard and it’s unacceptable.”
