Sen. Chuck Schumer “Look-At-Me” of the Week #3 1/30/13
No matter where you live, you likely have had the misfortune to be exposed to inordinate quantities of U.S. Senator Charles “Chuck” Schumer (D- N.Y.). Chuck has never met a camera he didn’t like and is in perpetual “re-election mode”. Press releases from his office multiply faster than Tribbles. From time to time, I illustrate some of the BIG ISSUES Chuck tackles. Needless to say, I generally have some commentary on said BIG ISSUE.
Just before last week’s Presidential inauguration, Schumer was fully focused on uncovering what the heck happened in Benghazi. No, sadly, that last line is unadulterated sarcasm; keep in mind he IS a Democrat!
Chuck was actually concerned about free Presidential Inauguration tickets purportedly being offered for sale on-line. Schumer feigned outrage that anyone would rather sell their inauguration ticket and pocket a few dollars then attend the silly event. Maybe Obama’s first Inauguration was historic; this was just a “I’m not moving out yet” party.
Schumer: These Inaugural Ceremonies Aren’t For Sale
(That headline is right from the press release! It obviously does not apply to the President’s corporate sponsors, right?)
“This year’s Presidential Inaugural Ceremonies are not for sale,” said Schumer. “eBay and Craigslist are doing the right thing in stopping the sale of scalped tickets to one of our nation’s most sacred events. I hope that everyone who has an Inaugural ticket will think twice before posting these tickets on any ticket resale site. This is a chance for people from all 50 states to celebrate our democracy, not for ticket scalpers to make a quick buck.” (full press release here)
Once again, a Democrat is attacking good old American capitalism…
Hey Chuck- How about you and your Democratic sidekicks actually take a real swing at uncovering the Benghazi debacle? Obama is already reelected, what have you got to lose… aside from Hillary 2016?
