“Very junior senator” Ted Cruz really getting under skin of very senior Sen. Harry Reid

posted at 7:21 pm on May 7, 2013 by Mary Katharine Ham

This is the second very similar attack, by name and name-calling, on the Senate floor in two days. It begins to look a little overwrought on the part of Sen. Harry Reid, who used to be known for boasting of his pugilism prowess and ducking booby-trap bombs in his Gaming Commission days. Now, he’s rather ruffled by a “schoolyard bully” many years his junior trying to, gasp!, influence Senate processes.

May I suggest that, in the Alinskyite tradition, Reid stick with demonization of his target instead of muddying the waters with this emasculation and condescension tactic. This is just sloppy and makes Reid look scared and insecure, not angry and scurrilous, as is his customary pose. He sounds like Montgomery Burns, indignantly fist-shaking in the presence of a new crop of cargo-shorts-wearing tech CEOs. “CONFERENCE ROOMS ARE NOT FOR AIR HOCKEY TABLES, DAMMIT!”

Here he is on the floor today. Thanks to Charlie Spiering for the clip:

Highlighting his relatively advanced age and accompanying crotchetiness is perhaps not the best fit with a Democratic Party apparatus that has been successful in laying that stereotype on the Republican Party. Elevating the GOP’s youthful up-and-comers with a good bout of get-off-my-lawn ire seems counterproductive, even if Reid makes it clear he doesn’t think Cruz is the sort of “clean, articulate” and ethnic-dialect-free young man he’s wont to approve of in politics. This has a whiff of Sen. John McCain’s railing at Sen. Rand Paul in the wake of his drone filibuster, complete with repeated, personal hits that suggest deep annoyance at one’s opponent’s efficacy.

And, then he goes and cribs his insults from the New York Times. Reid’s attack today began with a reprise of “schoolyard bully” before moving on to “very junior senator,” the same phrase the Times used when it took to the fainting couch over Cruz’s disrupting the “courtly ways” of the U.S. Senate in February.

You’re slipping, old man. Excuse me. Very senior man.

Harry, we’re comin’ for your seat, man.

vinman on May 7, 2013 at 7:24 PM

Cruz is obviously effective and considered a threat – a Hispanic who “votes wrong.”

BD57 on May 7, 2013 at 7:24 PM

Reid seems very much to be obsessed with Cruz. Cruz must be doing something right getting into Dingy Harry’s head.

hawkeye54 on May 7, 2013 at 7:26 PM

At last, the concept of the Senate as a “gentlemens club” is unraveling.

nobar on May 7, 2013 at 7:27 PM

This is so entertaining.

I swear the next thing that is going to come out of Reid’s mouth “I would have gotten away with it if it wasn’t for that meddling Cruz”.

gophergirl on May 7, 2013 at 7:28 PM

Yo, Harry, at least I can still get it up...IYKWIMAITYD….

Funny, I thought Dingy Harry liked the young ones.

Naturally Curly on May 7, 2013 at 7:35 PM

An acquaintance told me that Harry Reid likes to have sex with 8 year old boys.

And that Reid keeps three of them in a secret room in his house at all times. (They wear out, some times.)

thgrant on May 7, 2013 at 7:35 PM

I wasn’t aware there was a seniority clause in the Constitution.

FU Reid.

You’re giving all the right people the vapors – it’s a badge of honor.

i wonder if someone told reid that cruz didn’t pay his taxes.

phatfawzi on May 7, 2013 at 7:39 PM

Has Harry Reid ever cleared up those troubling allegations of pederasty?

aquaviva on May 7, 2013 at 7:41 PM

Oh, man; that brings back memories of high school, rofl. *sigh* Good times, good times. And what a great band! :)

Midas on May 7, 2013 at 7:41 PM

Killing our own.

Whoever got their shorts in a wedgie over the “obscene anti-Islam” video should have been in the Mideast to see the effect of Senator Reid’s “This war is lost” clip on Al Jazeera and America haters over there.

His comments on the Iraq violence level did not go unnoticed by the bad guys. Yes, Virginia, crooks and enemies watch TV, too.

IlikedAUH2O on May 7, 2013 at 7:41 PM

The liberal media wants to make Cruz the focus.

What is the REAL ‘news’ is how Harry is coming unglued over Cruz.

Reid? Pffft!

Some ‘leader’…

Liam on May 7, 2013 at 7:42 PM

It’s a gentlemen’s club, unless the phucking dems have something to say. Stroke him out, Cruz. Hate that slimy bastard.

Trolls, please?

Liam on May 7, 2013 at 7:46 PM

The very junior senator from Texas. Lolololol. How about the only foreign born senator. Or the only senator with a green card.

HotAirLib on May 7, 2013 at 7:49 PM

Courtly ways of the Senate?

LOL

The “courtly ways” of history meant a lot of political intrigue and backstabbing. Reid has been a nasty piece of work.

I noticed that the NYT inserted Canadian-born in front of Ted Cruz’ name. They’re worried about him alright.

INC on May 7, 2013 at 7:51 PM

When Reid dies he’ll be given a state funeral with all the trimmings and accolades when in reality everybody will know that he was a liar, a thief and a traitor to the nation (he is a lib, after all).

Tell me the same thing about liberal Democrat politicians — including hacks like YOU — and we might find common ground.

What YOU fail/refuse to grasp is that we Conservatives trust NO politicians. You, on the other hand, fall all over yourself for your precious Obama.

The difference between us and HAL is that we loathe an incompetent racist, and HAL loathes a competent individual who judges based on character instead of skin color.

Once you realize that Obama and his Party think MLK was an Uncle Tom, their statements all make more sense.

Like I earlier said, YOU have no clue at all about Conservatism.

I’m not Conservative because of some other fellow. That false assumption, on your part, is like me saying I went liberal because of YOU. And YOU are the last person I would want or use were I to go liberal.

YOU are a total detriment to your own cause, to your own side.

I’m a Conservative by personal belief. I’m with fellow Conservatives to be among friends.

Like I said, YOU are incapable of understanding Conservatism. Yet you DARE presume to come here and lecture us?

Pffft!

He is talking about Dingy Harry. Not to mention almost every other Dem hack, but then I’m being redundant. His handle is certainly appropriate. A lib full of hot air describes him/her quite well.

All I said was he is foreign born and has had a green card. Prove me wrong.

original!, i see use the same tactics as your boy. ‘Someone told me romney didn’t pay any taxes, prove me wrong.” Is Reid your dad?

Going by YOUR standard, all oppostion to Cruz must therefore be racist.

As usual, you were the first to bring race into the conversation. All I said was that the man was born in Canada and probably still has a copy of his green card stashed somewhere. His citizenship can be revoked. Unlike those of us born in the good ol US of A

Ok I give up. Cruz was born in Texas.

Lets call this what it is. This is a man trying to intimidate his opponent rather than engage him in a fair debate. Where were the other Repubs while this was going on? I’m sick and tired of our best and bravest being left to twist in the wind by our RINO squishes!

This was obvious trolling, and lying, just to fling poo.

A violation of any terms of service.

But but but it wants to debate and we are just being “mean”.

Harry Reid, the very f*cking old man who is the poster child for euthanasia.

The senile old fool should be kicked out.

Lol. What do you even know about being Hispanic? Apart from the fact that you think most of them are illegals looking to become citizens in order to become gubmit parasites.

And that they celebrate Cinco de Cuatro.

Not until he becomes the minority leader.

Pelosi giving up the gavel was fun. Him losing all power will be freaking fantastic.
