Harry "Jelly of the Month" Reid

As much as I like the nickname "Dusty" Harry, I'll always think of him as my own little Jelly of the Month Club, a gift that keeps giving, all year long. When Lil' Harry rises to give a speech in the Senate, projecting all the authority of the AV Club President, I can relax knowing tomorrow's post will pretty much write itself. Yesterday, he didn't disappoint.

Reid got started with his defense of the filibuster by recalling this classic exchange between our founding fathers:

"A conversation between Thomas Jefferson and George Washington describes the United States Senate and our Founders Fathers vision of it. Jefferson asked Washington what is the purpose of the Senate? Washington responded with a question of his own, 'Why did you pour that coffee into your saucer?' 'To cool it,' Jefferson replied. To which Washington said; 'Even so, we pour legislation into the senatorial saucer to cool it.'"

Never mind the fact that this sounds suspiciously like something from Harry's copy of "Senate Fairy Tales and Bedtime Stories". If this statement supports the filibuster at all, it supports it as a delaying tactic, not a veto. In order to support that, Jefferson would have replied "So I can throw my saucer at the wall, and not have to drink it anymore."

Next Reid exhibited his mastery of the Constitution:

"Of course the President would like the power to name anyone he wants to lifetime seats on the Supreme Court and other federal courts."

Um, yes Harry, and that's exactly what the founding fathers intended. Maybe he dozed off before his Mommy got to that story; I think it's towards the end.

Finally, Harry laments the current state of the government:

"Republicans have sought to destroy the balance of power in our government by grabbing power for the presidency, silencing the minority and weakening our democracy."

OK, listen up Reid (and all you Dems), because this is the last time I'm gonna say it. The president didn't elect himself. The Republican leadership didn't make you a minority. You are silenced and marginalized because no one voted for you. No one wants you making decisions, no one cares about what you have to say. You're a bunch of whining children and your threat to shut down the Senate if the "Nuclear Option" passes just reaffirms my image of you as the spoiled little kid who quits the game because he doesn't like losing and takes his football home with him too so no one else can play.

Oh, and keep up the good work, you little comedy gold mine you.

You were pretty sloppy on Moxiegrrl , so we had to slap you around abit- no offense. Lots of "schoolboy howlers" on your blog. Wishing America's greatest living novelist and highly decorated veteran, Norman Mailer, to die, is pretty demented.

No, no one "slapped me around" at all. You come in at then end of a topic and post some vague rebuttals involving the word "pussy" and then claim victory. Wow, you are amazing. Want to try a real critique instead of vague insults like "schoolboy howlers"?

Oh yea, and Norman Mailer is a senile hack. Read the link I posted and argue otherwise.

Hi! I am going to be left handed voice here.

But if you compare me to Alan Colmes Team America Puppet... I will have to enforce my second Amendment Rights... (for more on my feelings about Alan Colmes you can check out my site... www.crackpotpress.com look for Daze Strange)

Not a Reid fan.. I am a BOXER fan..why because she has something that few politcians have...passion

Kerry didn't have it.
Dole didn't have it
McCain didn't have it.
Dukakis REALLY didn't have it.
Bush 1 didn't have it.

Reagan did.
Kennedy did.
Clinton Had it.
Teddy Roosevelt had it.
Even Nixon had it.
Truman had it.

Bush 2 thinks he does...but he's a "C" student who thinks he is an "A" student..like Dennis Miller.

The other six..you know what they had in common...

They loved people.
