It is getting so that we cannot publicly report politics without a discussion of vulgar remarks, much as during the time of the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal.
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-Times Square porno store district) called Scott Brown, the opponent of Martha Coakley, a "far right teabagger Republican."
You can see a video of Fox News asking Scott Brown for his response to Chuck Schumer using the vulgarity "teabagger" to describe the candidate. The New York Tea Party's co-leader, David Webb, has created a statement on Schumer's remarks:
"New York, NY...January 16, 2010 - The senior Senator from New York has joined the ranks of Janeane Garofalo, Bill Maher, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews in insulting Americans who exercise their rights in a Democratic manner. These stalwarts of Liberalism claim to uphold fiercely the rights of all, unless you hold a position that does not suit them. Massachusetts residents have legitimate policy concerns about Martha Coakley and a 1st Amendment Right to voice them.
Senator Schumer stated in an official email "Martha Coakley is running to fill the rest of Ted Kennedy's term, and her opponent is a far-right tea-bagger Republican." The accurate definition of "tea-bagger" or any derivation is an offensive sexual slur referring to the placement of a man's testicles on a woman's chin. One can only wonder how the women in Senator Schumer's offices, residents of New York or any woman who interacts with the Senator feel about his public and official use of such an offensive sexual slur in referring to American citizens he is elected to represent.
On the weekend when Americans celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. who fought for all to be judged by the content of one's character, is this the best character Senator Schumer has to offer?
He owes an apology to all Americans especially women. Senator Schumer is not misinformed, and I welcome the opportunity to speak with him in any forum on issues not insults.

Is this what New Yorkers were hoping for in their Senators? This is the same Chuck Schumer who insulted a flight attendant a few weeks ago when she asked him to close his cell phone.
