Video: Top ten Harry Reid gaffes

posted at 2:55 pm on August 18, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

I was tempted to add this as an update to the earlier post about the Rasmussen poll in Nevada, but this effort from Pajamas Media’s Ed Driscoll is worth a post all of its own. Most of these we’ve mentioned before at Hot Air, but with Reid threatening to keep talking about Sharron Angle’s “unusual stands,” it’s worth reviewing a few of Reid’s own fumbles and gaffes. As Ed shows, Reid isn’t going to win a contest over oddball comments:

One could argue that Reid is consistent, at least. He not only declared defeat in the Iraq war, he also declared that losing the jobs battle was “good news.” When one has to run as the incumbent Democratic leader of this Senate, defeatism really is all a candidate has left.

There’s something in the air. Smells like November, doesn’t it, Harry?

Men, when they’re out of work, tend to become abusive.

Well then, Landra Reid might want to get a restraining order ahead of November 2nd.

Harry needs an enema.

“Men without jobs tend to be abusive”.

The only reason why Reid’s wife votes for him, and why Nevada wives should vote for Sharron Angle.

“Ted Kennedy’s death will be good for us.”

Scott Brown agrees…

You might smell the tourists Harry, but we can smell your fear.

You are probably hearing footsteps too.

“My staff always says, ‘Don’t say this.’…”

Shoulda listened.

Abby Adams on August 18, 2010 at 3:14 PM

And yet, this d-bag is in a dead-heat for re-election…

..from both ends.

No flowery prose. I just hope the sorry SOB loses.

Williams claimed that on two occasions he delivered to Reid at least $10,000 in cash from Mustang Ranch owner Joe Conforte as early as 1970, during Reid’s lieutenant governor campaign. The lie detection test, dated May 30, confirms the veracity of Williams’ statements that Reid built part of his campaign war chest with his ties to Conforte.

Fortunately for Harry, he has Princess Nana to make him look smart.

Nice. Thanx.

If we had a better, stronger candidate running against Reid we could rest assured we’d never have to look at that smirking little pipsqueak again. I hope she’s popular enough to end his reign, but I sure thought we could have done better.

Driscoll has a tiny head and huge hands! And a voice like velvet.

We’re almost twins.

Self propelled gaffe generater.
Biden is just as bad. Obama cured his speech impediment by having a teleprompter.

Harry always looks like his hemorrhoids are irritating him. Perhaps this is the reason for the gaffs! Tee Hee

Nice job Ed!

Alfresco on August 18, 2010 at 10:45 PM

Come November, Harry will be just another stinky tourist at the capitol.
