Harry Reid is a gosh darn pussy.
Crazy shit has been going down for years and the the Senate Majority Leader appears to me as nothing but a fragile old man who feebly reads directly off 3x5" index cards and stares at the podium while he talks about life and death of millions.
He needs to go, that is all.

When was this?
Maybe I should watch c-span more often. He's a friend of a friend, and has never struck me as anything less than extraordinarily good at playing his role.

I never knew CoT was so politically connected. Maybe I should watch what I say ;)
His words are forceful and from the heart but his demeanor, his delivery is not. I have nothing against him personally or politically, but when you are supposed to be one of the few to stand up and be a counterpoint to Cowboy Bush, you need to stand strong, speak strong, be strong. That is what America respects. Imagine an exchange of words, even fisticuffs between him and Bush. It would be a slaughter.
I think a few months on steroids may help him.

Well, Nevada is a small state, with an even smaller inner circle, and politicians have a lot of friends.
I believe it is the same in most other small states.

So you want a Cowboy Reid to stand up to Cowboy Bush, eh?
I think you're in the wrong theater, guy. Sounds like you want a Clint Eastwood movie -- and Bush (and Cheney) are WAY better at being Clint Eastwood than they are at defending the Constitution of the United States.
Sounds like Reid is EXACTLY the kind of person we need, to be a MEMBER of a movement of decency, building coalitions, uniting the disenfranchised. We don't need another "Hero", riding out SURE of himself and unable to recognize his own mistakes.
