Rachel Maddow Mocks Sen. John Ensign’s Retirement, Sex Scandal


Rachel Maddow had a lot of fun with the twisted tale of Senator John Ensign’s personal life on her Monday show. Ensign, a Nevada Republican, announced on Monday that he would not run for re-election in 2012. Maddow took the opportunity to remind viewers of why he is leaving politics–namely, the affair he had with a staffer, which he revealed in 2009.

Maddow’s recounting involved copious uses of everyone’s favorite Yiddish synonym for sex: “schtupping.” She took particular pleasure in playing footage of Ensign’s retirement speech, where he praised his staffers for their hard work.

“Uh…asterisk!” Maddow said, making the motion for the sign in the air. “What he’s saying is, not the staff member I was schtupping, or the staff member whose wife I schtupped.”
