"Karen! It is not too early to protect our majority!" Schumer personally wrote me. "We are embarking on our most aggressive plan ever to expose the GOP's extreme agenda."
(In other words, the protection of their cushy seats trumps protection of the country itself. That is probably a little too late. Way to unintentionally tell the truth, Chuck! Chuck's net worth, by the way, is over $1 million. At least two thirds of the U.S. Senate are millionaires).
Like any good marketer, Schumer enclosed a freebie. I got one of those small, oblong-shaped lined grocery list pads to induce me to pay him. The slim tablet is comprised of 10 whole sheets of 18 lines each. At least he is tacitly acknowledging that at least a few of his constitutents must subsist on decreased Social Security payments and/or food stamps and will not be needing to buy a lot of groceries!
My snarky son was over visiting yesterday, and after reading Stand With President Obama for Lasting Change. Silence GOP Lies emblazoned on the top of the gruel-thin pad, he wrote the following:
Block of wood.
Magic 8 Ball.
We'll be sending this scrap back to Chuck, or whichever unpaid DNC summer intern opens it, in the pre-paid envelope today.
