Look, it’s not that the Republicans in the Senate are any good. They just released a leadership slate with the same wet noodles they’ve had dropping the standard since the debacle of 2006, if not before. And they can’t seem to get Lisa Murkowski to shut that fish-mouth long enough to stop the rest of us from wanting to sell Alaska back to the Russians.
But compared to the morons on the other side, Mitch McConnell and his herd of RINO’s look like Bodhisattvas. Which, for the unwashed, is dot-Indian for “really cool wise guys.” Let’s face it – you couldn’t pay for fortune like Harry The Dull bestowed on the GOP today.
What are we talking about here? You won’t believe this…
In a letter obtained by POLITICO, Reid tells his colleagues that the party needs to “better integrate our legislative- and message-crafting functions into a coordinated nucleus managing policy, press and politics.”
As a result, he said, the Senate leadership will unite its policy arm with its communications center into a “joint operation” run by Schumer.
“I have asked Senator Schumer, whose communications abilities and tactical skills we all greatly respect, to lead this effort as chairman of the new office.”
First of all, Harry Reid is an obnoxious ass. There are few people in American politics who rank anywhere in his neighborhood on the obnoxious ass scale.
But there is a guy whose obnoxiousness makes Reid look like St. Philip Neri. And that would be Chuck The Schmuck, Killer of Banks, Sanctioner of Stewardesses, Fellator Of Microphones. And Reid, in his septuagenarian brilliance, thinks what the American people need is more cowbell after two years of delivering a “F You” message to all of us. He apparently thinks turning it over to Schumer to set a more attractive tone will improve the Democrats’ electoral fortunes next time.
Then again, maybe not. Let’s not forget that Schumer lusted after Reid’s job with alarming vigor when it looked like the old man was getting trounced in Nevada; Reid might be an idiot but he’s not suicidal. He deals with the Schmuck on a constant basis and knows what a backstabbing snake he is.
So to keep Schumer from delivering the unkindest cut of all, Reid apparently has decided to throw him a bone. And if he makes a fool of himself for the millionth time, it’ll be the end of Reid having to press his butt against the wall for fear Schumer might use it for target practice.
But isn’t it amazing that the Democrats keep talking about “messaging” as the reason they took it in the pooper on Nov. 2? Between Reid’s babbling and the President’s continuous blaming their defeat on “the economy,” you’d get the impression these guys have been on a Zoloft binge since the first of the month.
This is the gift that keeps on giving for Republicans like McConnell, as it more or less drops the standard he needs to meet almost to something he can actually handle. It also insures that, unless the Obamites smarten up, the carnage in November of 2012 will make this year’s cycle a mere belly-rub regardless how uninspiring the RINO herd might be.
It’s not great for the country, though. Obama’s policies and the Schmuck’s messaging might produce a GOP majority for the ages in two years, but life in America under an unrepentant Obama-Reid-Pelosi reprise, replete with messaging courtesy of “Putzhead,” is gonna suck. It’s not good having dopes like this in charge of anything that matters.
