Remember that L.A. Times story suggesting that tea party candidates were prone to saying goofy things? Their central example: Sharron Angle.
I give you Sharron Angle’s opponent, Harry Reid:
Q. Can you think of a greatest living American?
Reid: I’m glad I had the opportunity to know Ted Kennedy. Whether you agreed with him or not, what a life he led with his two brothers being assassinated, his other brother being killed in World War II. And Robert Byrd, who just died. What a, what a — he was in the Congress of the United States for more than 25% of the time that we have been a country. That’s fairly remarkable.
So Harry Reid’s greatest living Americans are . . . dead.
Add it to the statements I mentioned in my previous post:
- You can “literally smell the tourists coming into the Capitol” in summertime.
- Obama could win because he is “light skinned” and “with no Negro dialect.”
- Justice Thomas was “an embarrassment to the Supreme Court” because his opinion in a particular case was inferior to that of Justice Scalia . . . who didn’t write an opinion in the case.
And in my last post, commenters pointed out two I had missed:
- Kirsten Gillibrand was “the hottest member” of the Senate at a fundraiser. (Thanks to Dana.)
- Harry Reid on Chris Coons: He’s my pet. (Thanks to JD.)
Man, that Sharron Angle says some goofy stuff, huh, L.A. Times editors?
