State senator slurs Schumer

Schumer Cartoon, originally uploaded by rbtenorio.

Arkansas state senator Kim Hendren reportedly called Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York "that Jew" in a recent appearance. Things got weirder when Hendren tried to do damage control after his mean-spirited remark about Schumer's faith. "I was attempting to explain that unlike Sen. Schumer, I believe in traditional values, like we used to see on 'The Andy Griffith Show,'" Hendren said. My liberal heroine Susannah gives Hendren his comeuppance in this week's cartoon.

Hey Rich,

Bravo. I did not catch this on the news. When is the esteemed state senator up for re-election? Martin do you have any political aspirations?
