The news of Harry Reid’s decision to retire at the end of his current term is already causing speculation about who will fill his role and lead senate Democrats.

Charles Schumer of New York seems like an obvious choice to some, but the party’s Warren wing is always eager to give the...

Harry Reid Nuclear Option Floor Debate 2

There have been few people as destructive to our political process and discourse as Harry Reid. His pugnacious antics have been a feature here since the inception of this blog.

Finally, he’s retiring.

From The NY Times:

Senator Harry Reid, the tough tactician who has led Senate Democrats since 2005, will not seek re-election...

The over-vilification of the Democrats’ favorite boogeymen may have cost them the Senate last year. Turns out that crying “Koch” is not what voters want to hear. Who knew? Oh that’s right, everyone who was not Harry Reid.

Who can forget Harry Reid’s exceptional case of Koch Derangement Syndrome?

Chuck Schumer (D-NY) might just be the worst Democratic Policy and Communications Center head of all time.

Or, the best, depending on how invested you are to Congressional Dems’ current messaging strategy.

Yesterday, Schumer stood up at the National Press Club and unequivocally threw President Obama and his coalition under the bus for...

Senator Harry Reid is known for his rants against the “1%” and evil Republican moneyed types. Never mind that Reid stays in the Ritz Carlton when he’s in D.C. or that he’s worth over 6 million bucks, of course.

Ambush journalist, Jason Mattera, caught up with Senator Reid and asked him about...

Harry Reid’s attacks on the Koch Brothers have been plentiful and well documented. While his obsession and poor taste have been noted on many conservative blogs, there hasn’t been much push back from the media.

That’s what makes this segment from MSNBC’s Morning Joe so special. Not only does host Joe Scarborough...

One of the most vocal critics of President Barack Obama’s lackluster response to the exploding southern border crisis is one of the few Southern Democrats left in Congress: U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX).

Harry Reid Constitutional Amendment Campaign Finance Senate Floor 5-15-2014

The spectacle continues.

Harry Reid again today used the power of his position to single out two private citizens who have committed no crime, broken no law, and whose political speech is within the First Amendment protections as determined by the U.S. Supreme Court. Those two people are the Koch Brothers.

In supporting...

Has there ever been a more unseemly war by a Majority Leader of the U.S. Senate than Harry Reid’s unending, obsessive demonization of the Koch Brothers?

Remind me, please, when in recent history two individual citizens, who have committed no crime, have been so vilified by someone is such a position...

Yep, he did it again.

I don’t think we’ve written here yet about the Bundy Ranch standoff, mostly because we didn’t have enough information about the situation to make a judgment about what really was going on. And I didn’t have enough time to figure it all out.

Senate Votes to eliminate filibuster 11-21-2013

The seemingly inexorable march towards economic socialism and political statism has been accomplished through legislative and judicial ratchets which, once established, were all but impossible to reverse in part because the filibuster helped lock in the agenda and those supporting the agenda.

Because of the ratchet, the nation moved only in one direction:...
