Harry Reid Jumps Shark, Again
This kind of stuff is so insane no author would include it in a novel. But reality is again stranger than fiction. As Republicans and Democrats wrangle over budget cuts that amount to a mosquito bite in the rump of Fedzilla, Sen. Harry Reid has decided to stand up on his hind feet and take a principled stand to save a program being threatened by budget cuts. He claims it is absolutely vital this program not be cut. What is this stupendously important program? Is it Yucca Mountain? No, Sen. Reid has already killed that. Reid says we must save the cowboy poetry contest that is held in Nevada. Excuse me while I go and scoop my jaw from the floor. *snap* There I feel better though still gobsmacked. A poetry contest? Really? I think Harry needs a nap and his diapers changed.
