Just this week, notorious camera hog Sen. Chuck Schumer said perhaps the dumbest thing I have ever heard a politician say.

In attempting to make a point about how the organs of power on Capitol Hill need to work together to prevent a government shutdown, Schumer reconfigured the three branches of government. "You know," he said, "we have three branches of government. We have a House. We have a Senate. We have a President." It should be noted that this isn't the model described in most civics textbooks, which list the three branches as legislative, executive and judiciary.

Now imagine if a Republican had said that. Better yet, a Republican woman. She would be called stupid. She would be mocked on cable news and spoofed on "Saturday Night Live." Her credibility would be questioned, and if she were attractive, she'd be discounted as a dingbat or a bimbo.
