Chuck Chuckles at His Own Immaturity

by on January 17, 2010

Not to pile on, but I’m with Matt. Critics should offer a deal to Chuck Schumer: we’ll stop harping on the nasty things he says as soon as he stops saying nasty things.  Fresh off news regarding his catty betrayal of Hillary Clinton, he’s now aiming his crude phrasings at voters who happen to disagree with his politics.  These aren’t juicy yet unsourced allegations: this time, he foolishly signed his name.

To recap, Chuck Nasty churned out a letter intended to help, of all people, a troubled Massachusetts Democratic senatorial campaign.  Polls indicate Republican candidate Scott Brown is doing remarkably wellin a navy blue state. Ironically, Schumer’s reaction was to work blue:

Martha Coakley is running to fill the rest of Ted Kennedy’s term, and her opponent is a far-right tea-bagger Republican.

That’s nice, Senator Sugarmouth.  At least he makes Coakley’s reporter-shoving rented henchman look good by comparison.  But it doesn’t forgive his juvenile working.

How many New York residents did he insult?  An even better question: when will he grow up?  He probably giggles at the limericks written on the walls in the Hart Building’s men’s room.  Fittingly in this case, many were undoubtedly written by the late Ted Kennedy.

Basically, a second-term senator employed language that one would expect from Janeane Garofalo.  Of course, one shouldn’t anticipate that a member of the Upper Chamber would use the same raunchy language as the “lady” “comedienne” anymore than we’d expect him to have prison tattoos.

Schumer unfortunately gets away with being a malicious little partisan in his particularly one-sided state for the same reason that a dog licks his, to use the left’s phrasing, tea bag: because he can.  At the same time, Schumer might not at present even be able to pull of a victory in a notorious Democratic hive like Massachusetts if he had to face the candidate he slurred.

Even if Brown loses narrowly, it will provoke panic attacks among the left; if he actually pulls it off, as some interesting sources think he will, we’ll get to enjoy the glorious sight of Harry Reid weeping in front of a white flag on C-SPAN.  Consider the way Big Daddy Chuck himself put it:

But it would be even worse for the decisive “no” vote to come from Ted Kennedy’s old seat.

That’s true, if by “even worse” he means “totally awesome and hilarious.”  Irritating Schumer is reason enough to support Brown.

As for Brown’s potential future coworker in Schumer, we shouldn’t expect such nastiness from a senator in general.  But we’ve come to expect it from this senator in particular.  In a Weekly Standard blog’s headline,Mary Katharine Ham used the perfectly accurate phrase “Schumer Goes Gutter.”  Experience says that he’ll stay there.  If we’ve learned anything, it’s that he’s a 59-year-old with a 12-year-old’s sense of humor.  Oh, that’s real mature, Charles.
