Jourtegrity Loser of the Week 021109

Jourtegrity Loser of the week.......dumb roll NY Senator Charles Schumer who said when discussing the Spendulus bill...

"and let me just say to all the chattering classes, when considering these, yes, "porky" amendments - the American people just don't care."

Thanks, Chuck, us chatterers will move on to the A-Rod steroids case. Or the octuplets - now that's news!

And what does this have to do with Jourtegrity lost? They fact that you didn't hear or read about this gem in the MSM makes it a journalistic integrity issue.

Yep, that idiotic comment by Schumer will come back to haunt him. What he really was saying was arrogant: we can get away with it because voters are complacent and don't care about wasteful spending. It was also remiscent of something Barney Frank said recently, something to the effect that voters SHOULD (i.e. don't) hold pols to a higher standard.
