Harry Reid: Seditious Dumbsh*t

There's an old movie from the '80's called "The Hollywood Knights" which was basically a California-based "Porky's". It has some funny moments, though. Throughout the film there are these two hapless cops who act as the antagonists to the fun-loving gang led by...wait for it...Tony Danza.

There's a great exchange between the two that comes to mind when I read about Harry Reid's attempt to score political points with the moonbats by calling Generals Pace and Petraeus "incompetent". It goes like this:

Officer Clark: (having just penciled a thin, fake moustache on his upper lip) "Don't you think I'd look good in a moustache?"
Officer Bimbeau: "You'd be perfect. You'd be a perfect horse's ass."

And for Reid to think like he looks good bad-mouthing our military leaders in a time of war makes him just that: a perfect horse's ass.

Military Motivator has the best graphic to demonstrate the absurdity of the Majority Leader's statements:

Harry Reid Is Incompetent.jpg

h/t: to Uncle Jimbo at BlackFive who's words dovetail nicely with the above graphic:

"Harry Reid calling anyone incompetent is like Michael Moore calling them fat or Bill Clinton calling them unfaithful. Aside from the fact that they are both hugely accomplished men, for a thin-lipped, milquetoast, cream in the coffee, cadaver like Harry Reid to mouth off to them is just sorry. To do so simply to score political points with the hater wing of your party just points out how much trouble the Dems are in once the rest of the country gets a belly full of the nutroots.

Woudn't you just love for Reid, Petraeus and Pace to meet up in a Men's room and have the two Men give him a swirly prior to reminding him that he's not allowed up on the porch with the big dogs? Not to rub it in, but hasn't Harry Reid sucked Hoover as Majority Leader? Doesn't Mitch McConnell keep punking him on every gutless maneuver Reid attempts, every slap at our troops, every weaseling about timetables, and Reid has the unmitigated gall to call these men incompetent? Somebody needs to help this pitiful old fool to the sidelines, he's even making me feel bad for the Dems. Well, not really."

And Confederate Yankee has the section of the U.S. Code that spells out pretty clearly what Reid's words need to be called: sedition.

Let me close with by directing you to some thoughts from our old buddy Dennis Miller about Sen. Reid.

As much as some people would like to turn this into a "he said, she said" type of incident, the fact remains that Reid doesn't deny denigrating our military commanders. When asked about it, he said: "I think we should just drop it."

That's right, Harry. You can't admit it because you'll look like a horses' ass. You can't deny it because you'll get it from the nutroots you were trying to impress.

What a sad, sorry, little man.

3 witnesses said he did no such thing:

I don't hear a denial from Senator Reid.

(crickets chirping)

This has made a big enough media splash where at least his staff must be aware of it.

And he did say it, it would be consistent with has past statements on the state of the war. Which means if he didn't, the burden is upon him to refute it and emphasis his support for the man he voted to appoint back in January.

Here's the transcript. The context is ambiguous, but my reading is that he is calling Gonzales incompetent in the conversation, not Pace (although he is not complimentary RE: Pace).

Buddy, clarification must come from Reid, not you.

I guess it should be a joint conference with McCain?

So what's your point?

If it's that McCain, a supporter of the President's policy, was also critical of a general, and that somehow either validates Reid's point or makes us hypocrites for criticizing Reid, you might remember that:

1. It may come as some shock to you, but McCain's stock with a lot of us isn't much higher than Reid's.

2. Having said that: While McCain's rhetoric was critical, it was far from the harsh, disrespectful tone of Reid.
