Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York put his foot in his mouth Tuesday during a conference call with other Democrats. He thought reporters would soon be joining them, so he told the other Democrats to remember to label any Republican spending cut proposals as “extreme.” He said, “I always use ‘extreme.’ That is what the caucus instructed me to use.” He was then informed that the reporters were already on the line, and he stopped talking in mid-sentence.
- And to think that Schumer was just 2 days away from being able to yell APRIL FOOLS”! Oh the humanity!
- The good news is the new health care plan covers “Foot in Mouth” disease.
