As Harry Reid awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed on his couch into a Senate Minority Leader. He was lying on his hard, as it were armor-plated, back and when he lifted his head a little he could see his domelike brown belly divided into stiff arched segments on top of […]

So today, I see Harry Reid, in his patented sullen peevishness, saying                “The Border. Is. Secure.” And I think “Aww, man, no-one could listen to that – after all that’s going on – and end up with anything other than rug-burn on the bottom of their jaw as […]

The 74-year-old former boxer has often tossed around unsourced smears to gain a brief political advantage, but now one wonders if he took too many blows to the head.

Last month, as the Senate was busy negotiating the final details of its Ukraine aid package, Majority Leader Harry Reid became temporarily distracted with a campaign finance issue.

Senator Harry Reid at a Las Vegas Review-Journal event had some interesting statements to make regarding recent events at the Bundy Ranch in Nevada.

“They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists, I repeat: what happened there was domestic terrorism….There were hundreds, hundreds of people from around the country that came there,” Reid said. “They had sniper rifles in the freeway. They had weapons, automatic weapons. They had children lined up. They wanted to make sure they got hurt first … What if others tried the same thing?”
