America’s dumbest Senate Majority Leader has struck again.
After having embarrassed himself and the Senate by calling Barack Obama a ““light-skinned” black man “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one” prior to the president’s election, and having compounded that idiocy by calling Delaware Democrat Senate candidate Chris Coons his “pet” last week, the Nevada Democrat is at it again.
This time, Reid shed his sort-of-racist baggage and his kinda-pedophile creepiness – and still managed to step in it.
Reid’s gaffe didn’t go over too well among the frumpy fundraiser patrons at New York mayor Michael Bloomberg’s townhouse – particularly not with Gillibrand herself, who reportedly “turned red” at the comment.
Reid’s press flack immediately launched into damage-control mode:
Reid spokesman Jim Manley, reached by POLITICO, said, “What can I say, she made The Hilll’s ‘Most Beautiful list. Of course he also went on to praise her skill and tenacity and described her as an effective member of the New York delegation as well.”
The thing is, by Senate standards Gillibrand probably does qualify as hot. And at a gathering of normal Americans with a normal human being being thus complimented, this wouldn’t be an issue. But among a gaggle of New York left-wing elitists, the kind of people Reid has been sucking up to ever since riding bordello cash into a political career 40 years ago, it’s hardly a secret that kind of statement won’t go over well.
Maybe Whoopi Goldberg or Snoop Dogg could get away with something like that, but a shriveled-up person of pallor like Reid? Nope.
The fact he’s not sharp enough to recognize that before making an ass of himself isn’t remarkable to those who know Reid’s history. The fact that he’s the most powerful member of the Senate is as shocking as it is outrageous. You can help remedy this by donating to Reid’s opponent Sharron Angle today.
