A Quote From Harry Reid

"In Iraq and here at home, Americans have made clear they are tired of the failures of the last six years," said Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada.
I like that quote, it reflects the outcome of the election. If Harry Reid had said that yesterday I would have thought he had given in to honesty. But no, he was talking about the midterm election of 2006.

Now, in 2014, when it's his party's turn, he trots out the following bit of bulls... fluff.
“I’d like to congratulate Senator McConnell, who will be the new Senate Majority Leader. The message from voters is clear: they want us to work together. I look forward to working with Senator McConnell to get things done for the middle class.”
That is not the message I want Harry Reid to get. I want him to get the message that I think all of them are lying, self-aggrandizing scoundrels that should be sent home in shame and replaced with honest men and women that would serve the Republic with honor. But unfortunately, none of those patriots were available, so we had to settle for replacing one set of scoundrels with another.

You should look around a little more. There are some fine people that got elected Tuesday.

Your were right the first time. It's bullshit. As for exchanging one set of scoundrels for another? I'll give the first timers a chance before I lump 'em with the retreads.

Sadly, probably not enough to make a difference.

Going to be watching... And if we just changed sets of assholes, we can try again in 2016!

Even of all we did is changed to a new set of assholes, it's a Helluva lot better than keeping the old, bought and paid for, entrenched assholes in office.

Newbies are rarely as effective at being assholes as old, entrenched assholes are.

Nothing worse than an entrenched asshole, amirite?
