Harry Reid’s comment that Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand was the “hottest” in the Senate has generated reaction ranging from “there he goes again” to “sexist!“
When I posted first thing this morning about it, I guess I fell into the “there he goes again” crowd (Someone Tell Grandpa Harry To Stop Talking).
But the actual quote attributed to Reid reveals that this is not just Harry Reid talking. Reid made clear that Gillibrand’s hotness was a subject of discussion, presumably among Reid’s fellow male Democratic Senators (emphasis mine):
“We in the Senate refer to Sen. Gillibrand as the hottest member.”
Who are We, and when did We say it?
