Dirty Harry Reid is at it again. In an interview with the Reno Gazette Journal, the dumbocrat from Nevada was asked how Senator Kennedy’s death would affect things. Reid’s response:
Q: How will U.S. Sen. (Edward) Kennedy’s death affect things?
A: I think it’s going to help us. He hasn’t been around for some time. We’re going to have a new chairman of that committee, it’ll be, I don’t know for sure, but I think Sen. (Chris) Dodd, (D-Conn.). He has a right to take it. Either him or (U.S. Sen. Tom) Harkin, (D-Iowa), whichever one wants it can have it. I think he (Kennedy) will be a help. He’s an inspiration for us. That was the issue of his life and he didn’t get it done. [emphasis added]
At least he didn’t say that he was happy Kennedy was “out of business“. I believe his defeat in 2010 will help Nevada in general and America in particular.
