Show Uncle Chuck how much you care!

Yesterday, Chuck Schumer dismissed criticisms of pork in the Porkulus package by saying Americans don’t care how Congress spends our money:
And let me say this, to all of the chattering class, that so much focuses on those little, tiny — yes, porky — amendments: The American people really don’t care.
If nothing else epitomizes the out-of-touch cluelessness of the limousine liberals now in charge of the government, this does. We’re gonna pork up our legislation, and nothing you say matters. The Culture of Corruption has arrived, and it’s partying on your dime.
As long as they’re going to have a party, why not send them some appropriate appetizers? The boss got this great idea from one of her readers:
I just wanted to pass along to you that one of our local radio hosts, Leland Conway, has asked everyone to bring bags of pork rinds to the radio station so that they can be mailed to Sen. Shumer’s office along with a note explaining that at least some Americans do care about pork. Perhaps this is something that could be considered on an even larger scale across the country.
Well, shucky darn (Chucky darn?) and slop the chickens, that’s a great idea! But why not do it directly? Here are a few of Schumer’s addresses, and a couple of options for pork rind orders that can be delivered right to his door:
Schumer, Charles E. – (D – NY) Class III
313 HART SENATE OFFICE BUILDING WASHINGTON DC 20510
District Office- New York City:

I’m sending the Hot & Spicy variety, and I may even gift-wrap it.
