Chuck Schumer - Liberal Extremist Stooge

Okay, it is time to start calling New York Senator Chucky Schumer out on the carpet as the liberal extremist demagogue that he really is. This guy has been getting away with it for too long simply because he manages to say his crackpot things in a calm, rational tone of voice. He's even managed to convince some media-types to refer to him as a "moderate." Well, no more. Since he was first elected in 1996, decorum in the Senate has plunged. I'm not saying that Al D'Amato, the Republican that he replaced, was any paragon of class or virtue, either. In fact, I sort of viewed Schumer as the Democrat version of D'Amato when he was running. But none of this judicial filibuster nonsense was ever discussed until he entered the senate and brought his crass ways with him. And it is very telling that he, along with Dick Durbin (another one of what I have dubbed "The Three Stooges of the Senate"), were standing right behind Harry Reid the other day after that Rule 21 publicity stunt where they closed the Senate doors. As big of a joke that Al "Senator Pothole" D'Amato may have become towards the end of his political career, Chucky Schumer is ten times worse. Heck, he even makes his seatmate, Hillary Clinton, look somewhat reasonable by comparison. At least she has the good sense to keep her mouth shut most of the time. With Chucky, beware if you ever get caught in between him and a camera. It is just unbelievable that he is on TV as much as he is (according to the latest issue of Roll Call, he has appeared on 11 Sunday morning news shows this year alone) and no one is calling him out. So, this former New Yorker gives Chucky a New York salute!!! I now return to my newfound, gentile Virginia ways...... (Yes, that was a joke. At least a few people got it.) Separated at birth?

I have to think RNO'R means his newfound genteel Virginia ways, correct?

When I first met Reilly, I actually thought that we WAS Jewish. So maybe he did mean "gentile".

It's pretty hard to lay the decline in decorum in the Senate at the feet of any one person or party. And compared to history, it's still pretty nice. At least there haven't been any violent assaults. But you can't expect the current minority party (the Dems) to be happy about the dismantling of the minority-aiding traditions (like blue-slips, ethics rules, etc.) that they grudgingly honored when the other party was out of power.

Let's get to the real issue - on October 06, in the 5th floor bathroom in the Dirksen Office Building, Sen. Schumer did not wash his hands after using the bathroom.

Actually, Chris, I don't know about Schumer, but ran into Mort Kondracke at IAD a few weeks ago. I wouldn't shake his hand....
