Click on Chuck's nose to get a better view of Puff the Magic Dragon

Oh, I don't expect you to remember me from our old alma mater, Madison in Brooklyn. But it wasn't that long ago that I was questioning you on a blogger conference call when, after a brittle and ice-cold few moments you unceremoniously slammed down the receiver leaving poor Rahm Emanuel to take the brunt of blogger angst. Anyway, I assure you, I have never lived in Kentucky so you can stop slamming the progressive bloggers of the Blue Grass State.

Seems, Chuckie Cheese, didn't like the references to him having a lizard brain at Down With Tyranny this week. Or maybe he hated Adam's artwork of him peeling off his facial skin, ala V, to reveal his true reptilian self. According to our pals at Ditch Mitch today, Schumer gave a speech at Yale Law School-- do they have superdelegates there??-- and he "took the time in his talk to single out a progressive Kentucky blogger for calling him a lizard."

Now, even though Kentucky’s progressive blogosphere has had unkind truths to speak of Schumer as of late, I think the senior senator from New York is mistaken here.

It’s Down With Tyranny that has correctly identified Schumer’s genus and species as Phrynosoma modestum.

Last I checked, he’s not based in Kentucky. He–- like many others–- just happens to share some opinions about Schumer.

In fact, Ken, another James Madison High School alum-- who swears he has no recollection of any Chuck, Charles or Charlie Schumer, nor of his mom Selma or his dad Abe, nor of his claims to have scored a 1600 on his SAT test-- has suggested that we ask the readers for suggestions in a new DWT feature: Call Senator Schumer a Name a Day. Any suggestions?


Our friends at Ditch Mitch and BlueGrassRoots are examining an interesting hypothesis about why Schumer was so heavy-handed in forcing Andrew Horne out of the race:
Sen. Chuck “Lizzy” Schumer (D) doesn’t care about defeating Sen. Mitch McConnell (R) in Kentucky so much as keeping him bogged down here and spending his loads of cash, and in Lunsford, Schumer found a man who was willing to part with millions of his own dollars on yet another ego trip. In short, Schumer manipulated Lunsford, and the KDP and Gov. Steve Beshear (D) played along because one more disastrous electoral showing from Lunsford in Kentucky should finish him off politically, and Kentucky democrats would therefore never have to worry about him again.

Let's not count out Greg Fischer, though. He's also loaded-- but not loaded down with the kind of Republican baggage Lunsford is. We need to find out more about him and his positions-- and we're looking into it now. Stay tuned.

You mean to say that Chuck(or his staff) have been reading DWT? Memo to Chuck. Stop trying to be a pretentious prick in Senate races. Do you really think Lunsford(a two time loser at the least) has more of a chance to beat Miss McConnell? Or is it just because Lunsford will pull a Romney(or as I call it, the pissing off Tagg routine). Democrats are supposed to be the defenders of the voiceless not the Corpro-crats. Is Chuck really that dumb that he'd think we'd take it lying down?
