Snooki snubs Senator Schumer

By Emi Kolawole

Snookie Ignores Her Senator Charles Schumer from PAPSFIRST on Vimeo.

MTV "Jersey Shore" star Nicole "Snooki" Politzzi was caught at Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C. signing autographs and, whether purposefully or not, snubbing her Senator, Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.).

In a video posted by Celebrity-Newz.com, Schumer can be seen walking behind Polizzi, a native New Yorker, as she is signing autographs. Members of the crowd around Polizzi can be heard telling her that the Senator is passing by, and Schumer, intrigued, can be seen doubling back to wave at the star.

"There goes your senator from New York," says a member of the audience, "Snooki, Senator Schumer is waiting for you."

After Schumer leaves, a crowd member asks, "Snooki, did you know your senator just passed by?"

"Really?" says Snooki before the conversation turns to what advice she had for "Two and a Half Men" star Charlie Sheen.

Snooki is in Washington, D.C. to attend the Washington Auto Show, where she also drew a substantial crowd.

What can we expect in today's popular (lack of) culture. The crowd might have said "Senator Schumer, do you know this ( fill in the blank)

She couldn't spell the word senator, much less recognize one. She is dumb enough to be a card carrying teabager.

See how the press redirects the scorn they should direct at our corrupt political system and the heartless billionaires and corporations who own it and have destroyed the American way of life to vapid party girls like Paris Hilton and Snooki? It's much safer for the Post to provide a forum for uncouth slobs to insult a full-figured woman than to expose the greed and venality behind the employment crisis in America.

This must be a new low for Chucky Schemer.

Even Snookie recognizes what a slug he is!

rmccr called the little munchkin a "flavor of the month actress."

Nope, she doesn't rise to the level of
"actress."

Senator Schumer should wear it as a badge of honor that she snubbed him.

Senator Schumer finally finds someone who pursues media attention more ferociously than he does.

This post would have been way more awesome if it had been written in the style of a Wild Kingdom description.

I've wondered why people whould spend the time posting "Who cares?". But I've just got to say, who gives a rat's patoot what sleezy Snooki says or does?

They were just sharing that awkward, morning-after "sobered-up-and-now-regretting-it" moment.

This is like saying oil and water didn't mix.
Too bad Schumer lowered himself to waving.
Doesn't he know that Snookie is Sarah Palin's child from an earlier relationship? You can see the resemblance to Sarah and the daughter from the dancing show (Krystal, or Pistol, or whatever).

I think she showed good political judgement by ignoring that fool.

I'm surprised she didn't say, "What's a senator?"

This is proof yet again that Snookis boobs are bigger than her brain. Why does they press report on the activities of these vapid idiots?
