Have you ever seen someone playing blackjack, has 20, and the dope still says “hit me”? That’s called overplaying your hand.
Speaking of overplaying your hand (and being a total hypocrite, turning the Senate into a 3-ring circus, and giving tactic approval to mob rule), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is either very confident of his fellow Lefties winning the upcoming Civil War II or his political instincts really, really suck.
Case in point would be the senior senator’s tweet of a handful of days ago.
Schumer oozed false humility when he sent out the following;
To railroad a vote now would be an insult to the women of America and the integrity of the Supreme Court.

But interestingly enough, it was Schumer who in 2006 referred to a flight attendant as a “bitch.”
As reported by the New York Post;
Sen. Chuck Schumer apologized today after word got out that he called a flight attendant a “bitch” for ordering him to follow the rules and turn off his cellphone before takeoff.
And his political protégé, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, initially provided him with public cover.
Schumer’s outburst was overheard aboard a US Airways flight from LaGuardia Airport to Washington on Sunday.
Schumer and his seatmate, Gillibrand, were chatting on their cellphones when the plane’s captain told passengers to turn them off.
But the two Democratic senators ignored the order and kept talking — prompting a flight attendant to ask them to follow Federal Aviation Administration rules, according to a House Republican aide who was seated nearby.
Schumer asked if he could finish his call. The attendant said “no” because the plane was waiting for him to finish so it could take off. The state’s senior senator ended his call, but then launched into an argument with her, claiming he was entitled to continue his chat until the cabin door was closed.
“She said she doesn’t make the rules, she just followed them,” the aide said, according to Politco.com.
“Bitch!” Schumer remarked to Gillibrand after the attendant walked away.
Apparently, Schumer has a bit of a bad reputation on the New York to DC route. As the Post also noted;
After the flare-up was reported, Schumer said he was sorry.
“The senator made an off-the-cuff comment under his breath after the flight attendant walked away. He shouldn’t have made it, he regrets it and he has apologized for it,” Schumer spokesman Brian Fallon said.
The attendant accepted his apology, Schumer’s office said. Schumer went back to Washington from LaGuardia on US Airways yesterday. A flight attendant said he behaved himself.
“He was quiet. He wasn’t on his cellphone or anything,” she said. But other flight personnel said Schumer has a reputation.
“He’s not nice,” said a flight attendant who has served the senator before.
