Chuck Schumer- The Senate's biggest ass?

Posted By Uncle Jimbo • [September 05, 2007]

Tough call there given the competition, I mean Teddy, Reid, Larry Craig but Chuck Schumer is just so consistently low and mean. Plus he is so ruthless in getting in front of a camera, there is plenty of ammo. Today was just a little soliloquizing on the Senate floor.

I feel his pain, it is hard to stand there all pompous ass-like and try to make the case that even though the surge is working, neither W nor the troops deserve any credit. Now that is a stretch, and poor Chuck face planted.

The violence in Anbar has gone down despite the surge, not because of the surge. The inability of American soldiers to protect these tribes from al Qaeda, said to these tribes: "We have to fight al Qaeda ourselves."

Wow Senator, really. So the Sunni tribes that before had either helped Al Qaeda, tolerated them, or were intimidated into submission by them, decided to fight them on their own. And somehow they chose to show this by allying themselves directly with us and conducting operations with US troops. Hmm go figure, but noted military expert Chuck Schumer wouldn't just be running his mouth would he? Just standing on the Senate floor flappin' his gums about things  he is woefully ignorant about, this is the US Senate for cripes sakes.

And yet there he is, lying in that disgusting tone those collegial jagoffs use. That combination over-bearing know-it-all and arrogant ahhhh I'll hold my tongue. I'm in the mood for some blistering profanity and Kev and I will cover this tomorrow at lunch. So until then, Bite me Chuck! The rest of us know who deserves the credit  and you well your career speaks for itself. A life spent on the public dole, telling the rest of us how to live.....poorly. No thanks buddy, now bugger off and let those of us conversant with reality continue on.

I completely agree with Hugh that Chuck could use some communications:

Asserting that the sacrifice of the American troops has been futile and their efforts in vain is an astonishing and vile statement for a sitting member of the United States Senate to make.  Call the Hill switchboard at 202-225-3121 and ask for his office and make your sentiments known.
