Wasserman Schultz was responding to an exchange between Brad Woodhouse, spokesman for the Democratic National Committee, and Bill Burton, the former staffer for President Obama and senior strategist behind Priorities USA Action, the main super-PAC supporting the president’s reelection. Both tweeted a link to an opinion piece by Washington Post writer Kathleen Parker.
.@woodhouseb you're brave to retweet a link that includes the word "Spanx" (which I didn't know required capitalization until this morning).— Bill Burton (@billburton716) December 5, 2012
“[Sen. John] McCain’s (R-Ariz.) opinion about [United Nations Ambassador Susan] Rice’s qualifications is only slightly less compelling than his thoughts on Playtex vs. Spanx,” Parker wrote in the post.
