Blonde and brazen, Stephanie Cutter might be a democrat Ann Coulter, if her goldy locks were longer. As it is, her job appears to be spinning straw into gold faster than the poor girl in the fairy tale of Rumpelstiltskin.
Officially, Cutter holds the position of Deputy Campaign Manager for the Obama presidential campaign. Unofficially, she revealed her talents this week when her work appeared to rival Rumpelstiltskin’s, telling tales which confound belief.
In her column Right Turn for the Washington Post, Jennifer Rubin cut to the chase when she titled her post for October 11, 2012, “Cutter: Libya is only a campaign issue.” Rubin’s attack occurred on the day of the VP debate. Her attack gained strength when Cutter appeared on camera following the debate, refusing to speak of failure, her voice high and her breathing rapid.
As a campaign worker, Cutter obviously tackles unseemly challenges. As a character in the Grimm Brothers' anthology, she appears dead set on creating her own fairy tales, where the girl with the golden hair smiles brightly into the camera while America wonders where its treasure has gone.
