What the F@*K is wrong with Harry Reid?

I am in a state of utter shock. After the Delaware Republican Primary went for Christine O’Donnell and the Rasmussen Poll came out to show how far ahead Chris Coons would be (if the election were held today), a lot of us were feeling good about the possibility of a more limited Republican growth spurt in Congress.

Then Harry Reid made a stupid statement.

Twice!

“I’m going to be very honest with you — Chris Coons, everybody knows him in the Democratic caucus. He’s my pet. He’s my favorite candidate.”

That was bad enough. But Harry also said:

“Let me tell you about him: A graduate of Yale Divinity School. Yale Law School. A two-time national debate champion. He represents two-thirds of the state now, in an elected capacity. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen him or heard him speak, but he is a dynamic speaker. I don’t mean loud or long; he’s a communicator. So that’s how I feel about Delaware. I’ve always thought Chris Coons is going to win. I told him that and I tried to get him to run. I’m glad he’s running. I just think the world of him. He’s my pet.”

Of course this gives O’Donnell the chance to advertise with “Christine O’Donnell — NOT Harry Reid’s pet,” or so says Meredith Jessup in THE BLAZE.

I’m wondering what Harry is going to do to remedy this one.

This is turning into one stupid election season!

Looks like Oct. 30 will be a great Saturday to go to DC…

If you watched The Daily Show or the Colbert Report last night, you know why.

If you didn’t. check out the HuffPo article below:

Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert will march together on Washington.

Or against each other in Washington.

Either way, expect plenty of Comedy Central fans to show up on October 30 when Stewart’s “Rally To Restore Sanity” will meet Colbert’s “March To Keep Fear Alive” in the nation’s capital.

The duo have been hinting at a major announcement for several episodes in a mock response to Glenn Beck’s own “Restoring Honor” rally that was held this year on the anniversary of a famous Martin Luther King speech at the same monument. There’s no indication that the announced get-together is a joke, though. Both comedians are telling their audiences to book hotel rooms now (though for different reasons, as you’ll see).

“It’ll be like being in a chat room,” Stewart explained. “But real.”

Stewart punctuated his announcement on the earlier program with a homemade-looking banner reading, “Take It Down A Notch For America.”
