Reid Buys Off Schumer With ‘Special Job’

From an irony proof Politico:

Harry Reid creates special leadership job for Chuck Schumer

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid plans to overhaul the Senate Democratic leadership next year, handing New York Sen. Chuck Schumer an expanded role spearheading the party’s messaging efforts.

In a letter obtained by POLITICO, Reid tells his colleagues that the party needs to "better integrate our legislative- and message-crafting functions into a coordinated nucleus managing policy, press and politics."

As a result, he said, the Senate leadership will unite its policy arm with its communications center into a "joint operation" run by Schumer.

"I have asked Senator Schumer, whose communications abilities and tactical skills we all greatly respect, to lead this effort as chairman of the new office."

Who would be a better voice for the Democrat Party than Chuck Schumer?

    If Nancy can have her special ‘boy’ (Clyburn) it only seems fit that Oilcan Harry should have his own ‘boy’ to toss meat too.
    The petting zoo cage is starting to fill although the swamp is still full of critters.

    That’s all we need. Chuck Schumer delivering the Democrats’ “message”. The whiny, nasal New York voice of the Democrat Party.

    Oh God! Make it STOP! My EARS!

    The only person in the Senate I would like to see on TV more than Reid would be little Chuckie.

    Even the pixles on my tv get agitated when that smear merchant comes on.

    But of course, I don’t want them on TV for my viewing pleasure. My bp can’t handle it. I want them on TV so that everybody else’s bp becomes a problem big enough to drive them to the voting booth.

    Fortunately, my clicker thumb has had 2 years of practice and now can usually hit the mute button before a word even escapes the snarling lips of these douche-bags. On a good day, I can usually switch over to ESPN before the merchants of menace even appear on the screen.

    Well, they may have put “He can spot a camera and microphones a mile away and reach them in a microsecond!” in euphemistic terms, but he does have the uncanny inability to resist bloviating to the press.

    During the long and vicious decline of the Roman Empire, Caesars had to fear the political allies and bureaucrats that installed them just as much as they had to fear their political enemies, rogue generals, barbarians, tax revolts…

    It is the inevitable conclusion to the pure “survival of the fittest” method of human organization.
