I haven’t written much about Harry Reid lately, although we do have over 100 posts in the Harry Reid tag dating back to the earliest days of this blog.

I’ll admit I don’t understand all the intricacies of the U.S. Senate Rules, but moments ago Harry Reid pulled the “nuclear option” in order to prevent Republicans from forcing Senate Democrats to vote on Obama’s jobs bill.

As reported by The Hill (h/t Marathon Pundit):

The debt deal “trigger” requires that one-half of the budget cuts come from the military if the “super committee” cannot reach agreement or if the Congress fails to pass the super committees proposal.

The concept was that fear of military cuts would force Republicans to strike a deal with the Democrats as...

We don’t know all the details of the negotiations between Mitch McConnell and the White House which apparently are closing in on an agreement, but one thing is clear, Harry Reid has become a sideshow.
