The really sad part of this story?

That Harf doesn’t see what a fool she makes of herself, every time she opens her mouth.

Via Breitbart: State Dept Spokeswoman Fights with Family Friend for Posting Critical Article on Facebook

Last week, legendary former Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger and George P. Shultz wrote a scathing Wall Street Journal op-ed critical of the Obama Administration’s nuclear dealmaking with Iran….

State Department Spokeswoman Marie Harf, already the subject of much humor for her unserious demeanor and suggestions such as combating the threat of ISIS with a jobs program for young jihadis, responded to this op-ed by dismissing it as “a lot of big words and big thoughts.”

Columnist David Brooks of the New York Times called this “the lamest rebuttal of a piece by two senior and very well-respected foreign policy people as I’ve heard” on the Hugh Hewitt radio show. “Are we in nursery school? We’re not, no polysyllabic words?” Brooks asked.

William M. Todd, an old family friend of Harf’s, linked to an article describing Harf’s performance and Brooks’ criticism on Facebook, crowing “Team Obama bans polysyllabic words!” Harf ended up in an angry Facebook exchange with Todd. “I’m not sure how you could think this article accurately portrays me or how I view complicated foreign policy issues, given how long you’ve personally known me and my family,” she wrote. “Does your hatred of this administration matter so much to you that it justifies posting a hurtful comment and a mean-spirited story about the daughter of someone you’ve known for years and used to call a friend?”

Well, that’s gonna leave a mark…not.

….Other Facebook folk got into the discussion (including a victim of IRS targeting who asked if Harf had an official position on that) before Todd replied: “I certainly can understand why your Team would disagree with Henry Kissinger and George Schultz on policy matters. However, what is amazing to me was your condescending and, almost childish criticism of what I considered to be a well-reasoned and thoughtful op-ed on the current Middle East crisis.”

Ouch, that really is gonna leave a mark.

    Absolutely spot on find Shifra. I love seeing results like this. Articles like this on the blog keep me very informed. Outstanding post. Once more, the fact that this administration is utterly incorrigible becomes more and more evident. I hope that is not too big of a word for Ms. Harf. LOL.

      Ding ding ding, sweetexp (Miss you, my friend)! Thanks for the article, Shifra. It’s great to see one of the Smug Ones getting called out by even her near and dear.

    Man, she is sooo out of her league. I’ll bet she wishes she had stayed at McDonald’s and let the grown “folks” handle “complicated foreign policy issues”. She’d be working the grill by now.

    Talk about your JV teams… Whenever these juvenile spokespeople stub their toes I can’t help but think of Tony Snow.
