You would think that a U.S. Senator would know enough to carefully calibrate statements when it comes to dealing with extremely sensitive and important issues–not to mention, knowing enough to refrain from leaking statements that might unnecessarily cause panic as people try to grapple with those extremely sensitive and important issues.

But when it comes to New York Senator Chuck Schumer, you would be wrong.

I wonder what Indymac customers must think of Senator Schumer’s meddling and panic-inducing comments. I would heartily endorse asking them and having Senator Schumer around to hear the answers.
