Most recently, Reid went to Kentucky to campaign for Alison Lundergan Grimes, the Democratic candidate for the Senate and pad his stats for getting it wrong.
Reid took the opportunity to stump for Grimes to instead bash Cory Gardner, the Colorado Republican aiming to unseat incumbent Democrat Mark Udall, as a “real loser.”
Cheap Seats is unsure how many Colorado Dems were in the Kentucky audience, but guessing the number was zero, it raises the question of where Reid thought he was.
Confusion seems to be Reid’s hallmark, especially in the area of winners and losers.
Remember back in 2007 when Reid opined on the ability of the U.S. military?
“I believe myself that the secretary of state, secretary of defense and – you have to make your own decisions as to what the president knows — this war is lost and the surge is not accomplishing anything,” Reid opined.
Unsurprisingly, history demonstrated that Reid was dead wrong.
Reid, it seems, doesn’t know winners from losers, which might explain his propensity to hang around with the likes of Nancy Pelosi, whose record of self-dealing in Congress is matched only by the likes of Reid’s record of fallibility.
Reid’s not exactly a slouch at self-dealing either, as his long record of questionable deals to enrich himself and his family demonstrates.
But he still can’t tell a winner from a loser, which might explain why he’s sticking so tightly to Udall.
