Theatrics

Sen. Harry Reid is a piece of work.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said the possibility of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) becoming president “sends a cold chill down my spine.”

Reid made his remarks Tuesday outside the Senate chambers when a reporter asked him about McCain, who is running for the Republican Party nomination for president.

Pulling out his wallet and removing a white piece of paper, Reid told the reporter: “All I have to say about that is this. I have it right here, and you can put it in your little recording devices.”

Then, reading aloud, and quoting Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) from an interview last Friday, Reid said: “The thought of him [McCain] being president sends a cold chill down my spine. He is erratic. He is hotheaded. He loses his temper, and he worries me.”

Reid then placed the piece of paper back in his wallet and continued taking reporter’s questions.

You don’t think he planned that, do you?

There’s nothing Reid would like more than to cause a riot among conservatives in the hope that we’d sit out of the 2008 cycle in protest against McCain. So, why not use one of our own as a tool to that end?

A Democrat playing offense is a dangerous thing. No matter who our nominee is, conservative Republicans need to ensure we’re not pawns of the Democratic party.
