Quotational Therapy: Part 105 -- Harry Reid.

Harry Reid, Corrupt & Wrong-

hreid.gif

By now, you've probably heard a few vague references to Senator Harry Reid's suspicious land dealings. In a fair media environment (or if Harry Reid had an 'R' by his name), this would be big news. In the real world, however, it's sort of just a minor footnote to the big news of the day.

Harry Reid-- who in many ways already runs show in the Senate-- would become the full blown Senate Majority Leader in the event of a GOP meltdown in November.

Here are a couple of his ideas on the world:

1. On keeping Americans safe from terrorism: "We killed the Patriot Act."

2. On making English America's official language: "racist" and "divisive."

3. On Social Security and those far-left blogs: "The second thing that I said -- the president said it was his No. 1 issue, privatizing Social Security. Now, this is the day after the election, when he's at his height and we're at our low, and I said, "We're not gonna let you do that."

But I didn't have the pathway to stop that. I kind of got the idea that I needed help. That's why [for] my first retreat in January, the first time it ever happened, I invited Markos and the guy from MoveOn, Eli [Pariser]. They came and talked to all my senators. Senators had never heard of a blog. You know, they knew nothing about this. So we were able to defeat the privatization of Social Security, I believe, because of the blogs."

Awesome. So he's a big left-wing blog hero these days. Fantastic.

On issue after important issue, Harry Reid has made Tom Daschle's obstructionism look like 2nd grade recess.

And he could be the next leader of the Senate, if disgruntled Republicans decide to stay home this November.


Previous Quotational Therapy Session:

He's Kinky. He Ain't My Governor.

The right quote can be therapeutic, so tune in to WILLisms.com for quotational therapy on Monday and Friday.

Wow! Flopping Aces has a wonderful post that liked to WILLisms. It helped explain alot of questions. The MSM hasn't given this story much substance. It should be Top priority given the fact that Harry Reid is such a Big Cheese for the Dems??? Not to mention this is an Actual Political Scandal and not just a sexcapade. Hmmm, silly me. What do I know about ratings?

Sen Minority Leader Reid should hang up his spurs instead of hanging up the phone on AP. Even the liberal planets around the NYT sun are agog at the arrogance of this girlie man for his land deals with a "former mobster." [BTW, what is the statute of limitations for being mobbed up?]

Sounds like the Dems are beginning the slide to Putinization before they are even elected to a majority status. The Russian KGB dwarf is busy giving parts of the economy to Russian mobsters, while his KGB pals and other cronies take the choicest parts of the economic pie.

Making a million without reporting it should be regarded as equivalent to e-mails and IMs to House pages, but look for silence by Pravda on the Hudson. As I was told long ago by a lefty scamster from Columbia U named Mark Rudd, "No fault on the left."
