If the Majority Leader of the U.S. Senate is making a play to become the high priest of the Church of the Global Warming, he’s doing an excellent job.
Harry “No Nukes Allowed (But Send Electricity for The Strip And Keep It Comin’)” Reid took to the Senate floor Tuesday to blame climate change for the disastrous Colorado floods.
Cheap Seats is inclined to doubt that Reid could spell “Colorado” if he was spotted the C, Os, L, R, A and D.
It might come as news to Reid that a similar event took place in 1976, when storms flooded the Big Thompson River, killing more than people when the Big T surged in the middle of the night.
That flood was on a par with the 2013 version — and well before the era of “climate change.”
But if Reid really was worried about global warming, Cheap Seats would expect him to be leading the parade to open Yucca Mountain to radioactive waste, easing the path for carbon-free electricity from nuclear plants.
Reid would call that rolling snake eyes, though, which is why Cheap Seats knows he’s full of craps.
