Schumer’s Friends, Real and Imaginary

Dan, that bit of news about Schumer reminds me: He’s got an op-ed in the N.Y. Post today on why the Senate should pass the Democrats’ financial-reform bill. I support parts of the bill and think other parts would be disastrous, but all that aside, check out Schumer’s hilarious exercise in straw-man-building:

Of course, not everyone agrees with me. Some on the right argue we should do nothing, that the banks have recovered and should be left alone. Some on the left argue we should be much tougher and punish the banks as much as we can. And there are some who say, “Just defend Wall Street, no matter what.”

Really? Who’s in favor of just defending Wall Street no matter what? His imaginary friends the Baileys?
