Oh my: Harry Reid goofs on Palin

posted at 6:02 pm on April 5, 2010 by Allahpundit

Via Greta. Given the nastiness that characterizes most of Reid’s shots at his opponents, a jab this gentle almost qualifies as affectionate. Maybe he has a soft spot for Palin? Or maybe, like most people who are facing doom, he’s mellowing a bit as the end approaches. New from Rasmussen:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid attracts just 39% to 42% of the Nevada vote when matched against three Republican opponents. Two of his potential opponents now top the 50% level of support…

Another tough sign for the Senator is the fact that 62% of Nevada’s voters think it would be better for the country if most incumbents up for reelection this November were defeated.

Twenty-three percent (23%) of voters in the state have a very favorable opinion of Reid, up slightly from last month. But 53% view him very unfavorably, up five points over the past month.

Another little political dividend for the Democrats courtesy of ObamaCare. The breakdown: Lowden 54, Reid 39; Angle 51, Reid 40; Tarkanian 49, Reid 42. The Times would have you believe that tea partiers are poised to ensure Reid’s reelection by fracturing over the huge primary field — 12 candidates in all — or backing Scott Ashjian as a third-party alternative in the general. Don’t believe it. Tea party leaders have already put the word out to the public that Ashjian is a stalking horse for Reid, which shows you how intent they are to head off any independent spoilers in November. As long as the eventual GOP nominee doesn’t say anything to actively alienate them, tea partiers will line up to knock Dingy out. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him lose by 10 points.

See, even Harry Reid can parrot played out jokes. He’s not a complete retard. (YSWIDT?)

Poor Harry. Scumbag. I only wish Pelosi and Obama could suffer the same fates in Nov.

Time to flush that turd!!!

Reid best be careful, or Governor Palin will add a target to her list.

Uh did I hear a lady in the audience say they (Palin and McCain) “should drop dead”? Stay classy Reid supporters!

terryannonline on April 5, 2010 at 6:07 PM

Harry Reid is the guy John McCain wants to cross the aisle with if they get reelected.

Ah, don’t get your hopes up. Obama is going to *snort* campaign for him. Hahahahahaha.

Tick tock, Harry. Tick tock.

All those dems continue to get all wee weed up over it. LOL

Buh bye.

Repurblican on April 5, 2010 at 6:11 PM

Harry Reid is the first clean, articulate douche to run for majority leader. And he is showcasing his ability to turn on or turn off his mid-western dialect at will.

and the Palin army marches on……

OT: Spector story on Brett Bair’s show…does he strike anyone else as a “Howard Sprague clone” from the old Andy Griffith show?

I am increasingly more certain she did it on purpose, just to tweek them.

That is the part that everyone seems to be missing. Nevada is only one of 50 states.

He is Elmer Fudd

Harry aka Elmer go get that wabbit in the other thread. You sound like an idiot.

terryannonline on April 5, 2010 at 6:16 PM

But Reid didn’t admonish her, he bumped the “drop dead” with a ” you betchya”..
Reid looks very pleased with his response too

macncheez on April 5, 2010 at 6:27 PM

Desperation. They run against TV personalities. Laughable.

CWforFreedom on April 5, 2010 at 6:28 PM

Rousing performance. He’s a regular stand-up comedian, isn’t he? Next thing you know he’ll be headlining at the MGM Grand.

Very, verry creepy. By Reid. And the “I’m No Lady” in the crowd. Very, very creepy.

OT: Ugh, the efforts of Mr. Reid are paying dividends. My mom was just laid off from her job because of the health care bill. Reid is toasted in November. Vile foe.

`They can drop dead`!

CWforFreedom on April 5, 2010 at 6:32 PM

Seriously, the hand teleprompter joke is played out. I’m even sick of hearing Palin goof on it.

Anyway, only 7 more months til Harry gets the boot.

Doughboy on April 5, 2010 at 6:37 PM

Don\’t forget, voters, this is the man who thinks you smell.

scalleywag on April 5, 2010 at 6:38 PM

No, Harry, I think you probably use your hand for other activities.

I’m looking forward to that. I’ll show up to watch him , in a purple T-shirt and a costco size pack of eggs…just the way he sends his supporters

macncheez on April 5, 2010 at 6:39 PM

Wow!!!! huge crowd you drew threw Harry!!!! hahaha

how big was Sarah’s crowd????

thousands of what? Roaches? Ants? Termites? Vermin?

Doh! Could be SEIU members… or ACORNS.

You are confusing Reid of NV with Patterson of NY..

Ummm – I dunno – I think Howard Sprague was much more charismatic. Better looker too.

For someone who’s supposed to be “irrelevant” and on the “fringe”, they sure do pay a lot of attention to that Sarah Palin lady. Hmmmmmm…..

GoldenEagle4444 on April 5, 2010 at 6:50 PM

What was the result in the match-up of Reid against Wayne Newton?

Emperor Norton on April 5, 2010 at 6:51 PM

That was a real Cecil B. DeMille crowd for the old boy. What was the matter? Weren’t the SEIU thugs paying enough to pack the room, or were their bus drivers on strike?

Poor Harry. All he has to look forward to is beating his wife when he loses his job.

Any Nevadans want to share who I should be sending a campaign donation to? I have been getting solicitations from all of them (except the stalking horse, of course).

onlineanalyst on April 5, 2010 at 6:53 PM

macncheez on April 5, 2010 at 6:42 PM

BTW, do you think maybe Nevadans were confused and thought they were voting for Harry Reems for senator all these years?
He would have been a definite improvement.

Dr. Carlo Lombardi on April 5, 2010 at 7:13 PM

Reid gave Greta an interview too. Pics here. I think it’s on tonight.

conservative pilgrim on April 5, 2010 at 7:26 PM

Hillarious! Harry unintentionally contrasts 3-4 words on a hand with Teleprompter-Barry, who is totally incoherent without prepared remarks.

In fact, his handlers are sufficiently suspect of his ability to speak extemporaneously that he requires a teleprompter to speak to an elementary class of 3-4 dozen. You betcha!

R Square on April 5, 2010 at 7:27 PM

Another POS that will soon be scraped off the collective shoe of the body politic.

Gee…Harry must’ve stayed up till 11:35pm to steal those jokes.

The Ugly American on April 5, 2010 at 8:44 PM

Thast was pretty lame and it’s more than obvious at this point that Sarah Palin is the one that the Hatefilled Left, Barry included, and the elitist beltway republicans fear the most…there is no doubt in my mind…

CCRWM on April 5, 2010 at 8:48 PM

This abnormal bowel movement is so slimey, I can’t help but imagine McCain and Graham send him campaign contributions.

SKYFOX on April 6, 2010 at 8:35 AM

Who is the guy in the right hand front part of the screen? Does Harry need a body guard? I thought everybody treated him so nice now that Health Care has passed.

Herb on April 6, 2010 at 2:49 PM

I listened to the video and frankly he sounds like an “angry Wally Cox” .
Maybe we can make him the center square after the next election.
