Today's Battle of Political Outrages: Sarah Palin's Hat vs. Chuck Schumer's Bitch

Categories: Featured, Politics
Which of the today's internet political shrieks wins the battle of Depressing Indicator of Our Discourse of the Day -- Sarah Palin's un-McCain hat, or the continuing uproar over Chuck Schumer saying "bitch" on a plane?

The answer may surprise you!

The Palin Hat, first revealed by TMZ, is an old McCain campaign cap the former governor of Alaska wore on a recent Hawaiian vacation. It is Controversial because Palin blacked out McCain's name on the hat, suggesting a grudge. Palin countered that the blackout was part of an attempt to go incognito and that she still admires the old man greatly. It's the talk of the asylum: Yak, yak, yak.

Schumer and the Swear was stupid from the start ( "BELTWAY ARROGANCE," screamed Michelle Malkin, others), but its dumbassery is compounded by persistence: the Post sees a sinister pattern and, in a ripe display of GOP PC, Republicans are using it to attack Kirsten Gillibrand, who was seated next to Schumer at the time, for not leaving the plane in a huff mid-air. Yak, yak, yak.
