Chuck Schumer is the bad stereotype of today's politician: smug in his superiority over the "little people" and anyone who dares to defy or question him, he had hoped to avoid even running a campaign this election cycle, counting on the fact that his relatively unknown opponent would be unable to match him in money and resources. Thanks to the new media and Jay Townsend's persistence and skill, Schumer has finally been forced into his one and only debate on October 23rd at Marist College in Poughkeepsie.
Schumer has called a past political opponent a "coward" for refusing to debate him multiple times; how would he characterize his own refusals now, one wonders?
