WHERE'S DEWEY? (via David Hill, The Bronx):

AD TAKES THE CAKE (FREDRIC U. DICKER, October 4, 2004, NY Post)

WHAT is sure to be a controver sial new TV commercial features U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer and GOP challenger Howard Mills standing together — as a gay couple atop a wedding cake.

The provocative ad — a copy of which was obtained by The Post — is set to start airing on cable channels across New York today.

The commercial, for Conservative Party Senate candidate Marilyn O'Grady, depicts two men, instead of a traditional bride and groom, atop a cake. The figures are meant to represent Schumer and Mills.

"They oppose President Bush on defending marriage and they support gay civil unions," says the narrator.

"Schumer and Mills: the perfect liberal couple."

So that's who's volunteered to lose to Chuckie the Camera Hog. That's why I come here, to learn new things.

But, is he actually paying for the privilege?

I'll bet this is not being given the respect it deserves in the NYC media.

BTW: Who is Chuckle the Camera hog?

Actually, Schumer got caught dipping into the till to pay for personal travel - in almost any other state, it would have been enough to make a race of it, but not in NY. Of course, Rudy v. Chuckie would have been a good match. In many ways, Schumer is more despicable than HRC herself.
