That's Right, We Ranked The Debbies Of History Because We Had The Guts

We don't apologize.

Debbies have maintained a long, rich tradition of breaking molds, making history, and doing Dallas. But with the resignation of now-former DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the world of Debbies has been hit hard. And we’re finally seeing that not all Debbies are created equal.

    Hah, just kidding, she found another job in politics right away.

    Deborah is a prophet from the Book of Judges. She led a successful Jewish rebellion against the forces of Canaan and then broke out in song after the victory, which came to be known as "The Song of Deborah."

    However victorious the battle, she never made it to the next round, as none of the judges turned their chairs around.
