Debbie Schlussel

Debbie Schlussel, a conservative political commentator, columnist, and business, sports & entertainment attorney/sports agent, is a University of Michigan graduate, and holds both Law and MBA Degrees from the University of Wisconsin. Schlussel’s unique expertise on radical Islam, professional sports, and a host of other political, social, and pop culture topics make her a popular speaker and television and radio news talk show guest. Her online fan club is the Internet’s second largest for a political personality (behind only Ann Coulter’s)

Attacked as "Enemy #1" by Ms. Magazine ("Women to Watch . . . and Watch Out For," February/March 2001), Schlussel is a frequent guest on ABC’s "Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher" and FOX News Channel’s "O’Reilly Factor," "Hannity & Colmes," "FOX News Live," "Beyond the News," and "Judith Regan Tonight," MSNBC’s "Hardball with Chris Matthews," "Buchanan & Press," and "MSNBC Live," CNN’s "Crossfire," "Talk Back Live" and "Weekend Wrap," and ESPN’s "Outside the Lines."  The Hotline, politics’ and talk shows’ most influential newsletter and online website, called Schlussel a "rising GOP pundit," and The Hotline’s influential columnist Howard Mortman wrote in his "Extreme Mortman" column that Schlussel is "one of the fastest rising young TV pundits today." That webcast was The Hotline’s most viewed webcast ever.

A regular on the nationally syndicated "The Howard Stern Show" (audience: 20 million every morning), and frequent Contributor to nationally syndicated FOX Sports Radio, she has appeared on C-SPAN’s "Washington Journal," Tom Leykis’ and Sean Hannity’s nationally syndicated radio shows, and many other radio and TV shows. On Election Night 2000, Schlussel was and continues to be the political analyst for Detroit’s CBS and UPN Television affiliates, and is was a regular political commentator on the weekly series, "Flashpoint," on Detroit’s NBC affiliate, WDIV-TV. In the past, Schlussel was a daily political commentator on the nationally syndicated (in 23 states) morning radio show, "Mancow’s Morning Madhouse," a top Chicago morning show, where she successfully predicted John McCain’s win of the Michigan Republican Primary.

Soon to be launched in syndication, you can read her popular twice-weekly online column, "Debbie Does Politics," on the Internet, at the Heritage Foundation’s www.Townhall.com and www.PoliticalUSA.com, where she is a Contributor/Columnist. Schlussel is also a frequent New York Post columnist. Her columns have often been read on the air by the likes of Rush Limbaugh, on whom she broke the Monday Night Football story. Schlussel’s columns are also frequently reprinted and excerpted in several major newspapers, including The Washington Times and Detroit Free Press. She has also written columns for FOXNews.com. Schlussel has often been quoted in the Wall Street Journal, Rolling Stone (on radical Islam), USA Today, including in its Sports Section (on the Americans with Disabilities Act’s effect on pro sports), and Sports Business Daily. She has also written op-ed columns for several publications, including The Detroit News, The Detroit Free Press, and the Wisconsin State Journal. A frequent conservative speaker at conferences, gatherings, and college campuses, Schlussel was a featured speaker at the 2001 and 2002 NRA Annual Meetings, the 2002 Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi) Fraternity National Convention, and the 2000 Toward Tradition Conference.

Schlussel worked for Fred Barnes, Editor of The Weekly Standard Magazine, host of FOX’s "Beltway Boys," and a former regular on "The McLaughlin Group," and Mort Kondracke, also of the "Beltway Boys" and formerly of "The McLaughlin Group," when Barnes and Kondracke were Senior Editors of The New Republic. Schlussel also worked in Washington for several Congressmen—including Rep. Phil Crane, Chairman, House Trade Subcommittee—throughout high school (at one point, she was the youngest Congressional intern on Capitol Hill) and college.

A lifelong conservative Republican activist, at the age of 21 and with all odds against her, Schlussel ran for the Michigan House of Representatives from the suburban Detroit area and lost by just one vote, the closest election in Michigan political history. In 1986-’87, Schlussel was awarded the title of "Outstanding Teen Age Republican in the Nation." You can often hear or read Schlussel’s insightful commentary on various political and sports-related issues in many publications and on many major radio and television stations in many major-market cities.

The granddaughter of immigrant Holocaust survivors, Schlussel is the daughter of a mother who was born in the former Nazi concentration of Bergen Belsen in Germany, and her father is a Vietnam-era Army Veteran. Schlussel has literally worked on campaigns for conservative Republican candidates since she was in the sixth grade, when she worked on Ronald Reagan’s first campaign for President. In 1988, Schlussel was the youngest female and youngest Jewish delegate to the Republican National Convention, a National Youth Vice Chairman of George H. W. Bush’s 1988 Presidential campaign, and a Youth Chairman of his 1989 Inauguration.

A long-time member of MENSA, the high IQ society, Schlussel is a practicing business, information technology, and commercial litigation attorney. President of her own business, the Schlussel Entertainment Group, a legal/business company representing professional athletes, entertainers, broadcasters, media personalities, businesses, a production company, and providing consulting to professional sports leagues and teams and collegiate sports programs regarding such issues as Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance. The real-life, female "Jerry Maguire," Schlussel has represented athletes and entertainers in the National Football League, National Hockey League, Major League Baseball, the Olympics, and even some of The Beach Boys.

Schlussel is the only female member of the Advisory Board of the Motor City Bowl, an NCAA Division I college football bowl game, played at the Pontiac Silverdome and Ford Field and has been featured in both "Who’s Who of Outstanding Young Americans" and "Who’s Who of Executives." A National Merit Scholar Finalist, Schlussel also speaks several languages, including Hebrew, Russian, French and some Arabic.

Schlussel is known as the national expert on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as it applies to professional sports, an issue that has recently garnered her national exposure in light of the suit by pro golfer Casey Martin against the PGA Tour.

In addition, as a strong supporter of free market/private sector solutions to societal problems, Schlussel volunteers feeding the needy at the Eastside Community Shelter on Detroit’s East side, and she has always done pro bono legal work for worthy needy clients. She is an avid athlete, who works out regularly, and who won several medals in tennis, track and cross country running in the 1984 Maccabi Games (the Junior Jewish Olympics). In 1985, she was a finalist to represent the U.S. in tennis at the Maccabiah Games (Jewish Olympics) in Israel.

At Southfield Senior High School, a Black majority high school, Schlussel was voted by her senior class as "Most Likely to Succeed," along with classmate, former NFL defensive back Torin Dorn (Los Angeles Raiders, St. Louis Rams).
