Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) accidentally issues the party’s talking points in front of the press:
Moments before a conference call with reporters was scheduled to get underway on Tuesday morning, Charles E. Schumer of New York, the No. 3 Democrat in the Senate, apparently unaware that many of the reporters were already on the line, began to instruct his fellow senators on how to talk to reporters about the contentious budget process. . .
“I always use the word extreme,” Mr. Schumer said. “That is what the caucus instructed me to use this week.”
