Oh hey! We just got a hit on our “stupid shit” Google alert! Not surprisingly, it’s a Politico article. It’s so stupid and childish and such an obvious attempt to generate clicks that we’re not gonna link to it. Here’s the inky, super-ghey essence:
Sen. Chuck Schumer loves the sound of his own voice, but it carried a bit farther than he might have liked on the US Airways shuttle from New York to Washington on Sunday.
According to a House Republican aide who happened to be seated nearby, the notoriously chatty New York Democrat referred to a flight attendant as a “bitch” after she ordered him to turn off his phone before takeoff.
First of all, REALLY? Your source is an anonymous Republican aide? Let’s see just how flagrant this shattering of US Airways decorum was (you have to get to paragraph nine):
When the flight attendant walked away, the witness says Schumer turned to [Sen.] Gillibrand, [his seatmate], and uttered the B-word.
OMG and OH NOES! Chuck Schumer used a bad word in a private conversation! Note to Politico and anonymous Republican staffers: Over the course of that day, “bitch” was probably the nicest thing Chuck Schumer called anyone.
Maybe this will get us in trouble with Politico too, but Fuck you, Anonymous Republican Staffer. What the fuck is this, third grade?
And while we’re on this, does anyone out there think that my iPod or Chuck Schumer’s BlackBerry is seriously gonna crash the plane we’re on? If navigational systems are that fragile, we should probably go back to the drawing board.
