A tough Democrat

GRIMM: Rep. Geminari, you cannot talk to the Tea Partiers. You'd be ripped to shreds.
CHAR: I think you underestimate me.
DEB: I'm a tough cookie. I can handle myself at a protest. What if I just go out there, look them in the eyes...
DEB: And explain to them that the Stimulus Package is not an enormous expansion of government largesse, but an aggregation of temporary projects designed to triage an ailing economy.
GRIMM: They would disembowel you and sell your bloodied pantsuit on eBay.
DEB: But I'd be SHOUTING it... Or at least raising my voice.
