Schumer tells Kerry: "Get lost, creep!"

So, the newly-elected Democratic Senate Majority leadership team was gathering for a cool photo-op, with the four main players walking out of the Capitol together. Which Senator with a lousy attendance record for actual votes do you suppose showed up, uninvited, to attempt to horn in and get some free PR for his stillborn 2008 Presidential campaign?

You guessed it! John "Magic Hat" Kerry, in the flesh. Sticking his ugly Lurch face into the camera shot, until Schumer confronts him and tells him to get the hell outta there. Here is the UPI report:

U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer appeared to kick Sen. John Kerry out of a Democratic leadership walk in Washington, a reporter who witnessed the event said.

An ABC News reporter said the incident occurred Tuesday outside of the Old Senate Chamber as members of the new Democratic leadership, of which Kerry is not a part, left the chamber en route to the Ohio Clock Corridor to discuss leadership elections, the incoming majority's agenda and Iraq.

The ABC reporter said Kerry left the room behind Democratic Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.; Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill.; Caucus Secretary Patty Murray, D-Wash.; and Caucus Vice-Chair Schumer, D-N.Y. However, when Schumer noticed Kerry, D-N.Y., walking behind him, he turned and said something to the Massachusetts senator that caused him to stop.

Kerry waited for the Democratic leaders to walk ahead and then ducked between two statues. The ABC reporter speculated that Schumer may have told Kerry to stay clear of the leadership shot.

The source is at the link above.

What a loser. He thought he could at least glom onto some of the glory of the Democrats' victory - which he himself nearly screwed up - and maybe even get some undeserved credit for it. Chuck Schumer is too smart and too tough for that crap, though. I disagree with him on most issues, but I respect him. Which is more than I can say for the lowlife gigolo Kerry.

Oh, and yeah - puh-leeze let some moonbat try to claim it was inadvertent on Kerry's part. That boy doesn't hit a lick if he doesn't have to, UNLESS it gets him on TV. He even makes servants go to the bathroom for him half the time.

Tip o' the hat to Powerline for pointing to this story of pathetic ambition

Hanoi John is so stunned his horse face is longer than usual. That's one SOB i'd enjoy scraping off the interstate after a fleet of 18 wheelers ran over him.

This liberal says get lost loser. The guy had it on a platter. My mother would have run a better campaign.

P.S. Scraps. Were you born an asshole or do you have to work at it?

Damn, we should've elected ... (Below threshold)

Damn, we should've elected democrats a long time ago. A 'leadership walk'? Oh, the things we've been missing out on by electing Republicans. "the leadership photo op!", "the leadership walk!", "the leadership trip to the steam room!", "the leadership dinner at Applebees!", "the leadership anything that doesn't involve working on problems under the dome!"

'leadership walk'. That'll fix Social Security's impending doom.

This is a hair off topic but...

I'm having a little trouble locating the Democratic 'mandate' in Congress. Am I looking at the wrong numbers or do they have 49 seats, the R's 49 seats, and two I's...one for killing terrorists, and one for terrorists killing us.

49 to 49 or 50/50 is now a 'mandate'? Someone take a moment and track the Dem's use of 'mandate' so that next time there's a close race won by a Republican it can be thrown in their face in a timely fashion.

Unless I got all confused by the Allen/Webb stuff and they actually got 50 seats to 48...cuz that would be an 'overwhelming mandate' for sure.

Kinda like the boy george's (little b, little g) "mandate" eh?

Schumer will be one nightmarish adversary over the next several years. He's running the DSCC again in 2008. Based on his performance this cycle, the GOP should be VERY concerned.

Plus, he has announced that conservative judges are persona non grata for the next two years. I think he will make that stick.

What also worries me is his grand strategy for a permanent Democratic majority. If any Dem can pull this off, its Schumer.

Schumer would have been cra... (Below threshold)

Schumer would have been crazy not to fight to keep his position at DSCC. This year was the toughest cycle for Democrats in several years, and he led them to victory. They are almost certain to gain further seats in 2008, when there will be 21 Republican-held seats up against only 12 Democrats, and possibly also in 2010, when we defend 19 to their 15.

The best hope for Republicans to grab back the Senate comes in 2012, when Democrats will have 24 of the 33 seats up for reelection.

Schumer did a great job and deserves full credit for it. He also gets a nod for giving that loser Kerry a swiftboat kick in the pants.

That's just like the Kerry ... (Below threshold)

That's just like the Kerry we've come to know and loathe....trying to get in the "lime light" and claim he did something when everyone knows that he either didn't do it and screwed up so badly that he nearly lost it for everyone. What a jerk. My question is why the people of MA keep voting for these well documented idiots like Kerry and Kennedy.

Yeah, your lack of respect for people who aren't like you is pretty astounding, thanks for pointing it out!

I thank god every day that I'm not like little george.

Elroy Jetson:

Chuckie does deserve props for winning the Senate a couple of weeks ago, but I think that circumstances beyond his control are going to keep him from coming out smelling like a rose in 2008. However, knocking Kerry out of the leadership picture was a good idea. Schumer is a lot smarter than I thought he was.
Keeping all donkeys in line for the next 18 months, especially in the House, is going to seem like herding cats. They will expose their own incoherencies and the good guys will rebound.
Hopefully the freshman senators and congressmen in the class of 2008 will be those who wish sincerely to reform government and win the war in Iraq.

From Hugh:"I thank... (Below threshold)

From Hugh:

"I thank god every day that I'm not like little george."

An obvious case of penis envy.

You can have Kerry...all day long.
