Welcome to another episode of lazy stealing of other writer’s work theatre. I’ve appropriated Athenae’s Zero Fucks post title but substituted Harry Reid for Howard Dean. I hope that’s not inappropriate. I doubt if Howard, Harry, or A will mind. Here’s why I remain wild about Harry:
“President Obama is the first President to be denied a hearing on his budget. He’s the first President to be denied a hearing on a Supreme Court nominee. President Obama is the first President asked to show his birth certificate,” Reid said on the floor. “President Obama is the first President to face over 500 filibusters here in the Senate. In this Republican Senate, President Obama will receive fewer nominees confirmed than any President in many many decades. Republicans have not done their basic work of government.”
“They would have us believe that Trump just fell out of the sky and somehow mysteriously became the nominee of the party, but that’s not the way it is,” Reid said. “Everything that he’s said, stood for, done in this bizarre campaign that he’s run has come, filtered up, from what’s going on in the Republican Senate.”
Trump, Reid said, “is the monster Republicans built.”
“He is their Frankenstein monster. They own him,” he said.
I can’t say it better than that so I won’t try. I’ll let Eubie Blake play us out:
