Harry Reid, The 'Lost' Cause, And Telling Like It Is

bozo%20the%20clown.jpgAn editorial from Harry Reid's own state notes that the Democratic strategy to use the ongoing violence in Iraq to their political advantage in the run-up to the 2008 elections requires some skill and nuance - skills Harry just doesn't have:

The Democratic strategy is anything but straightforward.

Sen. Reid and his colleagues know there is much political hay to be made by criticizing President Bush's planning and conduct of the post-war occupation. But they also know that while "cut our losses and pull out" plays well in Democratic caucuses, it failed in the Connecticut general election in 2006, when Sen. Joseph Lieberman and his anti-surrender stance handily defeated end-the-war candidate Ned Lamont -- even though Sen. Lieberman had to run as an independent to pull it off.

That's the kind of "poll" that really counts.

Thus, the Democrats' careful strategy requires them to appear to oppose Mr. Bush's ongoing occupation of Iraq (to please their pacifist base), without taking any concrete, "binding" actions to change the status quo.

Enter Sen. Reid, flopping around in big red shoes like Bozo the Clown.

There's much more, of course, and a commenter to the post thinks the Bozo reference to Reid denigrates Bozo!

That, my friends, is telling it like it is!

Wake Up America says it's pretty bad when an editorial in your own state's newspaper is calling you Bozo the Clown, but due to Harry Reid's idiotic words, that is what has happened. Reid deserves it, the man is so busy trying to score political points he never once stopped to consider the damage his words were causing to our troops.
