The Perfect Description of Harry Reid

Okay, this is from back in June, but Dennis Miller's appraisal of the sphincter-faced Harry Reid is as true today as it was then:

Reid's lastest contribution to our Republic is a Thanksgiving Weekend slumber party in order to prevent President Bush from recess appointing anyone who isn't to the left of Rosie O'Donnell.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, will keep the U.S. Senate in session over the Thanksgiving break because he wants to block President Bush from making any recess appointments.

Roll Call is reporting that Senator Reid inserted a statement into the record Friday stating that he will “hold the Senate in a series of pro forma or nonvoting sessions” to prevent Bush from exercising his appointment power.

Reid said, “While an election year looms, significant progress can still be made on nominations. I am committed to making that progress if the President will meet me halfway.

“But that progress can’t be made if the President seeks controversial recess appointments and fails to make Democratic appointments to important commissions.

You aren't committed to anything but obstruction, Senator Reid. You are a disgrace to the United States of America.
