Who Hired This Crew?
Kermit the Frog asked this question of his first mate in Muppet Treasure Island. Harry Reid has got to be asking himself the same question as he chugs Maalox in the Senate cloakroom.
Side note: After much pondering, I've come up with a nickname for Harry Reid. I'll now refer to him as Harry "Rowdy" Reid. Rowdy is in reference to Clint Eastwood's character on Gunsmoke. Rowdy Yates would frequently get into hot water with the Cattle Drive Trail Boss. As punishment he was sent to ride drag behind the herd, being subject to dust, foul air, and other side effects of traveling herd of cattle. Harry Reid is riding drag these days behind a herd of jackasses commonly referred to as Senate Democrats. End of digression.
These past two weeks have given Senators Boxer and Kennedy a stage upon which Harry "Rowdy" Reid would just as soon pull them from. First Ted "Dude, Where's My Scotch" Kennedy goes on a drunken tirade against Attorney General Designate Antonio Gonzales, surpassed only by his incoherent ramblings at the National Press Club.
Then, not to be outdone, Babs Boxer takes it upon herself to be the lone dissenting vote against certifying W's victory in Ohio. Taking a lesson from Teddy, she then rambles on about voting irregularities that exist only in that fragile ecosystem know as Boxer's Brainpan. Evidently emboldened by the press hype, she then goes on a 12 minute tirade against Conolezza Rice.
Babs must have missed the first episode of the Condi show where she effectively eviscerated the leftist members of the 9/11 committee as they attempted to misrepresent her actions.
Condi took Babs to task after her 12 minute tirade. You can read the transcript of the smackdown here, but the gist of it can be boiled down to this: Condi gave Babs the equivalent of the Atomic Piledriver. Political Commentators Guido and Vinny may do the color commentary in another post.
So, who is the face of the Democratic Party? It's not Harry "Rowdy" Reid. Its people like Hillary "We are the President" Clinton, Ted "Dude Where's My Scotch" Kennedy, "Slow" Joe Biden, and Babs Boxer. With leaders like these, all W and Company have to do is get out of the way and let them run their herd off the cliff.
Final Thought: Tomorrow W will take the Oath of Office for the second time. He will do so with his left hand on a Bible and will finish the oath with the phrase, "So Help Me God". Please keep your leftist, socialist, liberal friends and co-workers away from windows and sharp objects. Its for their own safety and protection.
Here endeth the lesson.
