Got His Groove Back
Reid Plays Hardball With The GOP...Finally
Harry Reid always ran the Senate in a way that
drove progressive Democrats crazy: timidly, like a mouse, and unwilling
to use the body's rules for political advantage.
Suddenly, with health care reform behind him, and bleak political prospects
for both himself and his party staring him in
the face, Reid has decided that it's finally time to stand up and act like
That's true, but it's so maddening.
Why wait until your career is f-ing over to act
like a man?.
After quarterbacking health care reform through
its tricky final moments in the Senate, Reid put the GOP on the spot yesterday,
forcing them to filibuster a broadly popular
Wall Street reform bill, and promises to do so over and over again. He's
deception, and turning his attention to issues--immigration--that
marginalize his opponents, and cleave the Republican party in two.
All these years I've been urging the Democrats to
stand the fuck up.
Harry finally takes my advice and look at the
good things that are happening
Why, Harry, why were you such a spineless wimp for all those years?
We weren't asking you to BE a man, just ACT like
You're like a great prize fighter who drank, smoked
and chased women in his twenties.
Now that you're 38, you want to start to get
serious about winning the heavyweight title?
work that way, Harry - why didn't you listen?
"I think basically he made the mistake of trusting
Lieberman and the Republicans, and he got screwed
by them and now he's learned," Howard Dean said
But Harry, the evidence has always been
clearer than Lake Concha - why didn't
you see it?
"I like Harry Reid a lot," Dean said. "He's a
guy who wants to trust people but he knows the Republicans
aren't going to cooperate with him based on his
experince with him during the health care bill."
Gee, Harry could've read bartcop.com
and learned those lessons years ago, but noooooooooooooo.
You chose to be Bush's cabanaboy instead of the
top Democrat in the senate. Why,
Dean discounted the extent to which Reid's own
personal political prospects are guiding his new approach.
"Probably not that much," Dean lied to help an
"I think all of the Democrats are going to be
helped by taking these issues on." Reid has suggested that
he'll prioritize the politically charged issue
of immigration over the more complex issue of climate change,
once the Senate passes financial reform.
Harry, you could've been a contender.
Instead, you were a nine year old girl in pigtails,
begging the GOP for crumbs.
Sadly, that makes YOU a crumb, Harry.
You could've been a warrior and a great statesman,
but you chose to be a meek little mouse, instead.
Good luck in your retirement, Harry.
It's the best thing to happen to the Dems since the 2008 election.
