Mental Midget

Here is an article regarding the California wildfires, what various people think needs to be done, strategies, etc....then along comes Harry Reid, that pillar of intelligence, with this remark:

“One reason why we have the fires in California is global warming,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) told reporters Tuesday, stressing the need to pass the Democrats’ comprehensive energy package.

This guy is a total moron. The reporter asked him to clarify his remark, you know, back it up with something, and he comes up with this:

Moments later, when asked by a reporter if he really believed global warming caused the fires, he appeared to back away from his comments, saying there are many factors that contributed to the disaster.

Wow, what a deep thinker. I can't describe how distressing it is to me that this man is in a position of leadership in the United States Senate.

JASmius adds: Reid is like a trained seal. Just feed him campaign contributions, remind him of what the nutroots will do to him if he deviates from their script, and he'll wax ineloquent of the flatness of the planet, a geocentric universe, or any other of the discredited primitivist myths of which "global warming" is but the latest.

If you were a homeowner in southern California this morning beholding the smoldering rubble that used to fit that description ("home", that is), wouldn't Dirty Harry rhetorically recruiting you as a Donk PR prop for their ruinous blizzard of new energy taxes and regulations just, er, warm the cockles of your heart?

Yeah, mine neither.
