The conservative group set up by former George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove is having some fun with a Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

American Crossroads unveiled a video today, “Debbie Downer.” It’s a well cut send-up of SNL’s “Debbie Downer” skit series staring Rachel Dratch. Complete with a finger-dancing jingle, the satirical video is relentless in its takedown of the DNC chairwoman. As one stanza goes:

She’s got all the grace of a punch in the face // she’s a double-down Debbie Downer

With judo-like skill, the video can’t stop laughing at Wasserman-Shultz’s comments about Republicans, which only highlights the video’s message to a comical degree:

Republicans hate all women, you know // They’ve got a plan to bring back Jim Crow // They’re gonna throw us out in the snow //oh, Debbie! Debbie Downer

“With all of her over-the-top negative remarks, new DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz has become a gift that keeps giving to Republicans,” said Jonathan Collegio, American Crossroads’ communications director.

So it would seem the group has found a way to turn her frown upside down.
