National Chuck

The Washington Post has an amusing profile today of Chuck Schumer in his element. The piece is evidence of his emergence as a national player, though the Post seems to think that he’s a bit exotic for Washington.

The piece also includes a favorite Jon Corzine line:

“Sharing a media market with Chuck Schumer is like sharing a banana with a monkey…. Take a little bite of it, and he will throw his own feces at you.”
