John Kerry Not Picked To Be Kickball Captain...

This came in yesterday from the UPI:
U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer appeared to kick Sen. John Kerry out of a Democratic leadership walk in Washington, a reporter who witnessed the event said.

An ABC News reporter said the incident occurred Tuesday outside of the Old Senate Chamber as members of the new Democratic leadership, of which Kerry is not a part, left the chamber en route to the Ohio Clock Corridor to discuss leadership elections, the incoming majority's agenda and Iraq.

The ABC reporter said Kerry left the room behind Democratic Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.; Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill.; Caucus Secretary Patty Murray, D-Wash.; and Caucus Vice-Chair Schumer, D-N.Y. However, when Schumer noticed Kerry, D-N.Y., walking behind him, he turned and said something to the Massachusetts senator that caused him to stop.

Kerry waited for the Democratic leaders to walk ahead and then ducked between two statues. The ABC reporter speculated that Schumer may have told Kerry to stay clear of the leadership shot.

So, it looks like that "joke" did sink the kite surfer's ship for 08'. I suppose this post could also be called: The Least Surprising Thing Chuck Schumer Has Done Recently. Does this mean anything for Massachusetts? And what are Ted's thoughts on the matter? Aside from, "Damn I look good."

Also, anyone hear anything else about Obama's supposed shady land deal? I heard this little snippet on NPR this morning and am at a loss to find anyting else.

Thanks to Power Line for the image.

I looked into the Obama land deal a few weeks ago. It's bad politics, for sure, but nothing illegal.

I agree, and I wonder why did NPR decided to throw it into Morning Edition this morning? That crazy "liberal media" must be at it again...
