I can’t really improve on TBogg’s analysis of the Harry Reid shitstorm, specifically, this:
Harry Reid is the honey badger; he doesn’t give a shit. He has the advantages of being the Senate Majority Leader which comes with a bully pulpit that can’t be ignored, he’s not some bomb-throwing back bencher, and he is a fellow Mormon who, like Jon Huntsman, seems to harbor a white-hot hatred of all things Mitt. Reid is most likely serving his last term in the senate and he’s is plainly tired of fucking around with Republicans and fully intends to bury their standard bearer which can have down ticket implications if depressed Republicans decide to stay home on election day because their top of the ticket prospects look like they are deader than Bob Dole’s dick.
The dumbshit wingnuts in my neck of the woods are pushing a new meme: Google Harry Reid is a Pederast. In other words, the accusations Reid made about Mitt’s taxes, which Romney could easily debunk by releasing them (and making Reid look like an ass in the process), aren’t equivalent to some embarrassing accusation about Reid (e.g., “Harry Reid wears a g-string under his suit.”). Instead, they’re equivalent to one of the most disgusting felonies imaginable. Mitt really must have done something bad to spur that kind of reaction, don’t you think?
