    Teh Stupid continues...

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Tuesday defended his remarks from Monday comparing congressional Republican opposition to healthcare to the 19th-century debate over slavery, accusing his GOP critics of "distorting" his intent.

    "At pivotal points in American history, the tactics of distortion and delay have certainly been present," Reid said. "They've certainly been used to stop progress. That's what we're talking about here. That's what's happening here. It's very clear. That's the point I made no more, no less. Anyone who willingly distorts my comments is only proving my point."

    Keep talkin Harry, keep talkin...
    May the FORCE be with you!

    I wish one of them had the balls to step up and say that. But, if they had balls, they would be working for a living instead of going into politics.
    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Not just lose, lose BIG.He needs an old fashioned butt whipping. This would serve notice to practical, intelligent people. Liberals, naw, they'll blame it on something other than a direct message. They are predictable if nothing else.

    I don't recall who is was, but one radio guy brought up the point that he'll lose, and then declare himself a martyr who went down for doing the right thing. Typical politician, ready to spin anything in their own favor.

    His approval is at 13%. If he doesn't lose then you know that the election was rigged.

    Y'all are assuming there's going to be an election for him to lose - the way he, Antsy-pants Pelosi and Zero-bama are acting, they don't seem to think there'll be any more elections in their future.
