Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has finally embraced madness in her effort to keep her party afloat, agreeing on Sunday that Republicans are more frightening than the Islamic State and Ebola.

Ms. Schultz, a Florida congresswoman, made the comment on CNN’s State of the Union with host Candy Crowley when pressed on a recent attack ad against Colorado Rep. Cory Gardner, The Daily Caller reported.

“So we’ve heard this in previous elections, too extreme, too extreme their tea party, we can’t work with them. So, it seems that the Democrats’ overall message is yes, ISIS is scary. Yes, Ebola is scary, but Republicans are a lot scarier,” Ms. Crowley said of the Democratic campaign.

“Well, that’s right,” Ms. Schultz admitted, before going on to attack Mr. Gardner’s record on abortion.

Ms. Schultz isn’t the only Democrat willing to contend the GOP is worse than the bloodthirsty terrorist group. Last month, Alabama congressional candidate J.T. Smith also suggested the actions of Republicans in Congress were worse than the Islamic State.
