Maybe Harry Reid Needs to Rest in a Quiet Place
If you think Senator Harry Reid has been acting a little crazy lately, you’re not alone.
In response to Reid’s behavior, the Editors of National Review have written a thoughtful note on his behalf…
The Editors would like to extend our condolences to Senator Harry Reid and his family as they go through this difficult time. While we can only guess at the exact nature of the psychiatric or neurological trauma the Senate majority leader has suffered, we assume that it is severe, judging by his symptoms, the most prominent of which is his new habit of taking to the Senate floor to deliver speeches that sound like they ought to be coming from a man wearing a bathrobe in front of a liquor store in Cleveland.
The Washington Post, which once had the fine discretion to overlook the embarrassing personal defects of Democrats within its good graces, recently awarded the poor man the dreaded “three Pinocchios” from its fact-checkers, who noted that the senator’s latest claims about the proprietors of Koch Industries, about whom Senator Reid obsesses the way Rosie O’Donnell obsesses about metallurgy, were largely disconnected from reality. Senator Reid, citing a recent White House report, claimed that Koch Industries was one of the main causes of global warming and that it was responsible for more greenhouse-gas emissions than Dow Chemical, Exxon, and General Electric combined.
Michael R. Crittenden of the Wall Street Journal has compiled a list of things Reid has blamed on the Koch brothers…
Climate Change:” While the Koch brothers admit to not being experts on the matter, these billionaire oil tycoons are certainly experts at contributing to climate change. That’s what they do very well. They are one of the main causes of this. Not a cause, one of the main causes.”
GOP Opposition to Minimum Wage Increase: “If Americans are searching for an answer, they should look no further than Republicans’ billionaire benefactors, the Koch brothers. Charlie and David want a ‘no’ vote.”
Fellow Senators Defending the Kochs: “While they don’t wear Koch Industries ties and jackets, they display their sponsors proudly through their actions here in the United States Senate. So it comes as no surprise that Senators have stood here on the Senate floor and voiced their support for Charles and David Koch.”
The House GOP Budget: “It is frustrating for Americans because it does not reflect what they envision for this nation. In fact, the Ryan Budget more closely resembles the wants of the multi-billionaire Koch brothers. It is the Koch budget.”
Maybe it’s time for Reid to retire, he clearly needs some rest.

Has everybody seen this hilarious 2 minute video? 134 Times Harry Reid’s Railed Against the Koch Brothers
Pelosi too. Just watched a couple seconds of her speaking, “republicans don’t believe in science” etc. It is CRAZY.
Why remove our most frequent source of amusement?
A quiet, padded place…???
Actually, no. Reid and Pelosi are still nominally sane (although I do believe Botox has undiscovered psychotropic effects).
They are merely leaders in a movement of people who have embraced delusion as their core set of concepts about the world.
This is how you get murderous pirates like Boko Harum who are seen as “bandits”. Bandits who engage in the wholesale slaughter of people at church services.
After you go down that road a while, you will believe anything. Such as “The Koch brothers are not A cause of Gorebal Climate Thingy…they are THE cause”. Or “Public opinion is with us on all the issues” (Baracula last week).
One of many reasons I despise Disney films. “Bandits” and “pirates” are now lovable rogues?
Bandits (and pirates) /are/ torturers, murderers, rapists, arsonists, and slave takers. It’s what they do.
THIS is what crazy looks like…
Harry Reid knows exactly wht he is doing. Since George W. Bush can no longer be used as a pre-election boogeyman, Harry is trying to create another – the Koch brothers. It’s a base-whipper-upper ploy, that’s all. Consider Harry’s frequency and shrillness of Koch-bashing as a measure of his desperation and as good a bellwether as any that he believes he’s done as majority leader come November.
Is there a legal procedure for having one involuntarily committed?
Koch brothers….slowly I turn, step by step, inch by inch….
Laughs aside, as a psychiatrist, I do believe there has been an observable decrement in Reid’s mentation recently. Personally, I hope he keeps his leadership role, at least until the next election. He has truly become a buffoon.
I suppose it takes a trained eye and ear to tell the diff between a typical Democrat/leftist politician and a nutcase.
It’s time for for Harry Reid and his twin sister, Nancy Pelosi to both rest in a quiet place.
“Whoah, there, Dick. Put the brakes on. I wanted to wait until the airman had left to talk with you. Dick, I’m transferring you.”
“Transferring me, sir?”
“Where to, sir?”
“You’re goin’ to Guam.”
“Guam, sir?! There’s nothing goin’ on in Guam! Why Guam?”
“Dick, I’ve covered for you a lot of times, ’cause I thought you was a little crazy. But you’re not crazy. You’re mean.”
